The food was excellent! I appreciated the waitress allowing us to try the wine before ordering. Definitely a wonderful dinner experience!
As always never dissatisfied or disappointed with food or service love this place and everyone there Job well done !!!
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
Great food, service! Best restaurant in town, ran by an awesome family!
Always a fantastic experience. Food is always so good!
60th Birthday - table reserved, amazing meal & dinner experience (not our first with Bennethums’).
We visit Here for nearly all of our special occasions. We are never disappointed with the food, service and ambiance.
Amazing night out. The food is unbelievably delicious. I’ve never had even an average experience here. Everything is fantastic.
Everything was perfect 🤩 Our server was super friendly, and we enjoyed every single bite, we even got lemon blueberry cheesecake to go since we were so full. Josh and his staff are always a pleasure to be around.
Great food, wonderful service
Always enjoy our dining experience there
Bennethums rarely disaapoints. It's pricey, but worth every bite. Sloan S was an amazing server!
Best perch ever! Loved the fingerling potatoes and the bread was delicious.
Always fabulous food and libations at Bennethums. So happy to resume our dining experiences there. Love the Coconut Cloud Martinis!
Top notch, you will not be disappointed. Everything was excellent.
Incredible food, incredible staff, incredible ownership.
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!
So happy that Bennethams is open again for great food! The weeks seemed like months but, glad we can get out for a great meal
Thank you everyone at Bennethams for hanging in there. We are in this together.

My husband and I extremely enjoy our time together for date nights. We don’t have much free time between us. Bennethums is always our go to. The Parmesan crusted walleye was phenomenal. Thank you again for a wonderful dinner and experience. We will be back.
All of our visits are great, but I think overall this one was simply the best!
Worth every penny! Steak was fantastic, drinks were great. Service was phenomenal!
This is my favorite restaurant in Gaylord, outstanding food and service. The only complaint is the lack of people coming in not wearing masks , I'm not from the area but noticed this is common practice in this part of the state. I guess the people "up north" don't believe in science.
Absolutely the best place to eat in Northern Michigan!
