Come from Petoskey at least monthly. Been here dozens of times. Maybe our favorite in all of Northern Michigan. But our most recent visit we felt a bit rushed. This time the prior course plates were not cleared before the next one came... app, salad, entree, dessert. Each one! We (2) sat at a table set for 4. Not sure how it would have worked had we 4 at our table!

But overall Bennethums is a great place!

Might have been a inexperienced wait staff or who knows.

We were there when the doors opened at 4. They may have had a lot of reservations. And our reservation stated 1.5 hours.... and with all that we were 5 minutes over.

And we did hesitate on selecting our courses.... so I don’t totally place blame on them.

Just be somewhat prepared until this Covid stuff passes and you can take the time you desire.

Server was very busy but did a good job. Food was very good. A tad pricey, though. For the birthday girl they presented a large piece of carrot cake with a candle. Very nice! Interesting drink menu.
We thought they were only booking 50 percent for Covid. It seemed more crowded than that and lots of customers walking around without masks.
