I was very happy to find a high quality restaurant just 40 miles from my house here in northern Michigan. Yumm
This is by far our favorite place to eat! Every thing is made in house. They have so many choices on their menu! The employees are all outstanding and you can tell they love their job. We go back as often as we can and recommend this place to all of our friends!
Always a great place to go. Food, service and atmosphere are amazing
Always great food, great service, and great atmosphere!!
Love this place. Have dined in numerous Michelin 3 star restaurants, and Bennethum’s favorably compares to many of them. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I now make sure I save room for desert. The carrot cake is amazing!
Thank you for your stars and feedback, Tom! We value your opinion and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Bennethums has the best Happy hour and appetizers in Northern Michigan. The staff is very good and the owner makes you feel like part of the fsamily.

This is exactly what we love to see so thank you for sharing this feedback, Laura. We value your opinion and look forward to serving you again soon.
This was our first time at Bennethum's after wanting to go there for quite a while. Our waitress, Chloe, was fantastic and so was the Spicy Shrimp Cocktail and our entrees. Next time we will save room for the Crème Brule!
We are so glad you were able to finally make it in and that you enjoyed everything. I will be sure to pass your kind words on to Chloe. We look forward to seeing you again and yes- you must save room for dessert!

Favorite place to eat with our friends or by ourselves.
Best happy hour in Gaylord and best and friendly staff
First visit. Great!! We will return.
Delicious Food. Excellent Service. Quiet and dim-lighting
Our first time there but not our last.
The meals were outstanding. Service was first class. Worthy of any big city top shelf experience.
If you want a dinner that is prepared like family is coming, then go here. You are welcomed with a host and can note all staff is masked properly. Our table was prepared prior to our arrival and more than adequately social distanced from others. The service was exceptional and the food was top shelf. Food Portions are a healthy size and the presentation of hit was visually pleasing. We come here everytime we come to Gaylord for golf. Make sure you plan ahead with a reservation and just enjoy the atmosphere.
Hi $$$ good food everything ala Carter. Great Service
Being from downstate, we always make it a point to dine at Bennethums when visiting in this area. Never a bad meal, and our waitress Monica was outstanding!
Bennethum's is one of our favorite place's to eat when were in Gaylord! We like the bar side to eat. They also have a dining area. We have never had a bad meal. The servers are great. We do our reservations on open table and never had a problem. The meals are a little pricy but worth it.
Thank you for your continued support and for sharing your feedback. If you haven't yet- be sure to enroll in our VIP Club before your next visit- you are sure to enjoy the member perks.
Table positioned in walkway. Kind of tight. Food excellent. Wine fantastic
We love Bennethumes and always make it a point to go at least once each time we are in Gaylord. We especially like getting there early for Happy Hour and enjoying their delicious appetizers.
Thank you for your support and feedback, Susan. We look forward to seeing you again next time you are in the area.
Second time visit. Every aspect of the food is incredible!!! Service was exceedingly kind and pleasantly attentive!!! Would recommend for any special occasion!!!!
Bennethum’s is the restaurant we can count on for consistently good food. We bring out of town guests, go for special occasions, and go “just because”. Every time we have great food, great service, and no issues. I get especially excited to try their “special of the day” fish - something I would never do at an unknown restaurant (here you can trust them!).
Although our favorite meals are on the pricier side of casual dining options at this particular restaurant, it is totally worth it! Their steaks are beyond compare! We had great service, excellent food & drink, & thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Can’t wait until we can visit again, on our way up to the UP!
Bright neighbors to introduce them to our favorite restaurant. Awesome as usual
Food during happy hour was delicious.
Thank you for your feedback, Jim. It's great to see that you enjoyed happy hour- it's popular for good reason. :)
