Bennethum's Northern Inn
Warm hospitality is at the heart of everything we do. Because we are family-owned and operated, we personalize your visits and attend to special needs. Our staff is our greatest asset and we work hard with them to create extraordinary dining experiences.
Our wine list is a compilation of our favorites from around the world. Our new wine cellar and Retail Program showcase these items and make them readily available for takeout at extremely moderate pricing. Our draught program includes ever-rotating microbrews and our cocktails are handcrafted with the finest ingredients.
As always, an enjoyable and delicious experience. So happy we made it in time for Prime Rib. We will keep coming back to this warm, welcoming, family friendly establishment. 😘
Kari was our server and she made our dinner even more enjoyable. We’ll be back😋
My husband, son and I enjoyed a fine dinner together. We started with the small plate appetizers. The menu offered a wide selection, all very reasonable during happy hour. The wine list is more than adequate. Dinners had a fine presentation, arrived hot and tasted wonderful. I highly recommend the ribs. Great server and enjoyed the light jazz eentertainment.
What a phenomenal review, NancyW. So glad you and your family enjoyed an evening out with us! Please give us a like on Facebook and keep up on our events - we will see you all soon!
Between the Happy hour menu and the Pub Fare menu there was more than enough to chose from at a reasonable price. We really enjoy the Jazz trio on Wednesday nights.
We are so happy you enjoy the Happy Hour, Sherry K. We appreciate it and will see you Wednesday!
Fine dining across from Lake Otsego. From our pre-dinner cocktails to the creme brulee and raspberry/chocolate cheesecake, everything was delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and there was a happy birthday message on the table when we arrived. Celebrating a special occasion is a good match to Bennethum's. They also have happy hour with small plates and lower priced drinks.
My only small objection is the small pour for glasses of wine. The mixed drinks were very generous.
MaryB - We love being a part of celebrations, thank you for coming to Bennethum's for the special day! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Service was very good and the food was good as well. Glad they hav resolved their water issue.
Food Fan62 - So happy you enjoyed it, and we will see you next time!

We appreciate you sharing your wonderful review, ThomasL. We appreciate you so much!
We have been to your restaurant a handful of times. Always wonderful! We would come more often but the prices are high for our daily budget. We save it for special occasions. The themed menu is the best!

This is a dining gem in the Gaylord area. The food is always incredible and the seasonal menu is always a delight. We even enjoy the special event menus. The food is always fresh and amazing. They cater to gluten free as well! The service and experience is excellent too. Highly recommend!

Great choices on the menu with Asian “month” plus their prime rib special and regular menu items. Drinks are always great (best wine, mixed drinks, and large beer selection). Service including visit by chef was exceptional. Nice message waiting at table for my wife’s birthday
So glad you enjoyed it, Mark and that we were able to make Donna's birthday special! We look forward to your next visit!

New Years eve
We went with a group of 8, adults & kids. The place was quite busy so we were happy for our reservation. The service was prompt and our food arrived equally as quickly. The price point is surprisingly high for the area, but as they say, you get what you pay for. We ordered a variety of appetizers and entrees and everyone left full and happy.
So glad you all enjoyed your visit, and we appreciate you taking the time to share your review. Looking forward to having you by again!
Great food. Love the theme menu. We continue to come back and bring our friends. Thus is our favorite restaurant.
Thanks so much, AndrewT! Please give us a follow on Facebook to keep up with our events.
Always an excellent choice for flavorful and high quality food and drinks. It's great to have a new theme menu each month that keeps it exciting!
We appreciate your support and your review, Michael J!
Our first time there, food and service were outstanding, Holly, our server did a great job!! The live music was very nice as well. We will return!!
So glad you enjoyed it! We look forward to having you by again - please give us a follow on Facebook to keep up with our events and musical guests!
Consistent high quality food and service. I think it is the best restaurant within the area.
Always fantastic!! Our favorite date night place!!
We love being the go to date night place! Thanks, Melissan21!
Love, love, love this gem of a restaurant in Gaylord. Fantastic menu, great service, wonderful northern Michigan vibe. I put the noise level on the high side because we continue to time our dinners when there is live music. Otherwise, when there is no music, it is normal noise level for dining....but the music nights are so much fun!
I loved what I ordered, a German dish, but my wife doesn't think she got what she ordered. She ordered a Weiner Schnitzle, but received a Jaeger Schnitzle. We will likely go back; I would love to, but my wife said this could be here last time.
JayO - if there is ever an issue, PLEASE let us know. We want every aspect to be a great one for you. I am hopeful to have you and your wife by again soon.
