Everything was GREAT! Waitstaff was courteous, food was EXCELLENT and we received our food very QUICKLY. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
The best cream of mushroom soup and bread we ever had. Portions are large. Will definitely be back.
The food was OUTSTANDING. The service was great. My only tiny negative comment is that we were sat at a table in the middle of the room so people were staring at us the whole time, it was a little awkward but I know they are doing the best they can with seating during a pandemic. (to avoid this, book a reservation in advance.) The food, drinks and service are amazing.
It is not unreasonable to expect the best experience when dining at Bennethum’s .The family has built that expectation. The food is always the best. On this night our server was Teresa. She too was the best. We have never had anything but the best. Josh is always the best host. Finally I would say if you haven’t already dined at Bennethum’s you are in for something very special. If you are a local you already know that. If you are visiting I would simply say Enjoy.
Great restaurant for Happy Hour. Food is excellent, wine menu and waitstaff outstanding!!!! The owner Josh always stops by the table to ask how the food was and leaves his personal touch..
Everything was perfect!! The Oysters we’re so fresh and yummy!!
Try the sheet cake brownie. Delicious!!! Staff is always attentive and the food is the best in Northern Michigan.
We love dining at Bennethum’s! The food is excellent and our server was too! Our party of 6 took advantage of the happy hour and ate a bit earlier than normal. I would recommend making reservations because it is popular!
Thank you for your continued support and for the wonderful rating, Kayl.
Delicious as always! Ordered my entire meal off the small plate happy hour menu. It was so delicious and I took food home for lunch.

Wonderful drinks and dinner.
This is my favorite restaurant to go to meet with friends, have consistently excellent food, drink and conversation. I especially love it in the summer when we can sit out on the lawn and dine. It's like home, only better because someone else cooks and brings the food out. I love the wait staff; they are professional and friendly in a home town way. Five stars to them. I'm so glad they've survived the pandemic!
Excellent food and great service, would definitely dine again
Thank you, Susan. We're grateful for folks like you and hope to have another opportunity to serve you soon.

Incredible food, incredible staff, incredible ownership.
Thank you for your support, Mike. It means the world to see that you enjoy what we do.
It was the best food I’ve had in a long time. The ambiance was nice but there was no lighting above our table. The service was top rate and the food was brought to the table steaming hot! It’s a bit pricey but each plate has enough food for two to split if you desired. I give them 5 stars.
Amazing as always! Great food, service, ambiance. Best place around!
Thank you, Danielle. We love to see that things have been consistently great for you.
