This place has pretty decent food, but they act like they invented beer. I do not recommend this place if you want more than one beer.

Awesome gluten free food and safe for someone with Celiac Disease. The wait staff and kitchen are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My daughter and I have never gotten sick from eating here. I love this place!

Many students and casual late working folks eat and drink here. The food has always been good. The atmosphere is fun and very pub like. You can find all types of beers there. It's .mainly sandwiches on the menu but always delicious.

I enjoy going to JRB. Usually have drink specials and good variety of food. Odd though that an English pub would use a cheap trash fish, tilapia, in lieu of traditional cod. That should not discourage anyone from going to JRB's - just order something else if you are not a tilapia fan. Friendly staff and a few televisions for... More

Having been a resident of Arlington for over 43 years, when I want a good sandwich and cold drink, I head for J.R. Bentley's. I've never been disappointed. Great atmosphere; nice folks on both sides of the bar; people in the kitchen who really know what they're doing. Great place to go to meet someone you know for a few... More

We love this "Pub", great food, drinks and a friendly staff. We usually go for a few cocktails, then take our lunch or dinner home. Always just what we ordered. Try their BBQ sandwich, very good. We recommend this place to all of our friends and bring company visiting here.

Went last night for singer songwriter night. New local guy played well. Cheeseburger was great, fish & chips very good. Nice choice on beers. Funny server at bar entertained us a bit. Crowd is younger as its next to UTA. But all behaved nicely... quite a story about pub history too. Give it a try... I think you'll be happy... More

Established March 1979, Bentley's is a quaint little pub, privately owned, newly remodeled and in the heart of Downtown Arlington. Only 1.5 miles from the Cowboys Stadium and 2 miles from the Rangers Ballpark. Awarded Best Burger three years in a row voted by University of Texas at Arlington students. The food and service is what sets us apart from the rest.
