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.

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.

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!

This was our first time dining (we found the restaurant by googling what was near us) meals are tasty and presented beautifully! It appears the tomahawk pork chop is a popular entree, we too ordered one and it was nicely seasoned; in fact it almost melted in your mouth (so yummy!). The cocktails were handcrafted and fun!! I ordered the Autumn Rum Punch, Apple Cider, Captain Morgan’s, Ginger Beer and garnished with an apple slice and cinnamon stick. My only disappointment (well actually 2: is not having found this restaurant sooner and the fact I don’t live in the area). This place is saved as a favorite!!!! Can’t wait to be back in the area.

Food is truly excellent. Service is as well. Prices are high, but to be expected with the quality of food and drinks. We were there on a Saturday night, and the restaurant was quite noisy. Next time we would like to visit on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday to see if the noise level is less.
