Food was great as always. The cherry margaritas are the bomb
Visited on anniversary, was greeted with personal note for us at the table. Food and service were point on. I would rate this as tops in town.
Excellent food with exceptional service. Our first time there and I hope to go back!
Service is excellent and food never disappoints!

Great steak, friendly service!!!!
Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate your support.
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.
We appreciate your feedback and continued support, Kennels.
Great food!! Clean and followed social distancing!
Thank you for joining us and for sharing your feedback, Nichole. We hope to see you for another 5 star experience soon.

Thank you for the feedback, Jeff. We appreciate your support and look forward to serving you again.
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.
Thank you for the feedback, Cheryl. We look forward to serving you again soon.
Casual atmosphere with amazing food. Lots of fun cocktails to choose from. I enjoy everything about this place.
Thank you, Nicole. We are grateful for your support.
I tried the pork chop meal. I have never in my life ordered pork chops for dinner but it sounded good. Glad I tried it, it was amazing.
The restaurant has a really warm vibe. I love these old school places with good service and delicious food. Definitely will be back again.
Thank you, Jennifer! I'm glad to see that we made your first pork chop choice a great experience. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to serving you again.

My absolute FAVORITE place to eat! Fantastic food, excellent service. But, did you have to get rid of the Texas Sheet cake Brownie? I would think about it allllllll day when we made reservations!! I would CALL AHEAD or even buy the WHOLE sheet cake! Please bring it back!
