When you enter the doors of Bender’s Tavern, you are following in the footsteps of others who were hungry and came to be fed and partake of the hospitality of the tavern. Benders is a restaurant that Western Reserve Masonic Community members chose for their fine dining night out. For some of the community members, it brought back so many fond memories of their youth. Spending birthdays and family get togethers at Benders was a tradition from some.
For over 95 long years the rooms in Bender’s have witnessed a procession of men and woman, and the old marble and paneled oak walls hold memories of the past. Despite a tragic fire in January 1988, Bender’s Tavern continues to be the gathering place for area residents and visitors. For those who had never been to Bender’s Tavern, they gave it a five star night out!
