My husband and I dined here on a Saturday night and it was wonderful! The menu has something for everyone (there were customers that night from 8 to 80)....I had an aged strip steak that was on special and it was expensive but worth every bite. My husband had the veal dish and he was not disappointed at all. We both had the French Onion soup and the biggest and meatiest East Coast oysters we have ever had, and trust me we have eaten plenty in our travels. We got the carrot cake (on special) to go and it was wonderful as well.

Our waitress Teresa was extremely courteous and kind. She would even quickly show us the food she was delivering to our surrounding tables as to help us make our dinner choices.

The restaurant was a bit loud but nothing obnoxious. And although the food is 'fancier' the attire is totally casual and atmosphere relaxed.

TIP: MAKE A RESERVATION! The restaurant is busy everyday and it doesn't matter the time of year. It just makes it easier for you and the restaurant :) Overall, if you have a few extra dollars to spend on a well worth it dinner go to Bennethums.

Valentine’s Dinner....it might seem a bit expensive for Norther Michigan but we had an excellent dinner with cocktails, appetiser, entree(perch for me, prime rib for my wife)veg and starch, and we split dessert for a price we couldn’t touch downstate. Service was great and atmosphere was fine. Very nice evening.

We were out with friends for a great culinary experience and got all that and more. Greeted at the door by Josh and shown to our table. Our waitress, Theresa arrived a few seconds later and took our drink, appetizer orders and explained the night's special which was Veal Oscar. The food that followed was fantastic from start to finish, and yes, we had dessert. A great place and a great evening, both our friends and we will be returning shortly!

Food was delicious in a lively casual atmosphere. Service was slightly less attentive (no water, beverage refills) but we were enjoying ourselves so barely noticed. Would definitely return.

We always enjoy our dining experience at Bennethum's Northern Inn. It is an iconic northern Michigan restaurant that provides excellent service, creative cuisine, and a charming, cozy setting. A true gem in the Gaylord area!

We really enjoyed the fare and the flaming appetizer. Our waitress was subpurp! We were there from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. My son has trouble hearing me at most restaurants. That was not a problem here. Thank you!!! The variety of food was magnificent. Dessert was superior!!! Yummmm! It was a very enjoyable anniversary experience!! We'll be back again!!!!

We were there for a Saturday night out with relaxing and great food.. We had a reservation and were greeted as soon as we entered and were shown to our table. The evening was fantastic from appetizer(Reuben egg roll) through the main course (Wiener Schnitzel and Havarti cheese shrimp) and on to desert which was Bennethum's special sundae. Theresa was great, she is a perfect waitress, fun and very knowledgeable. The owner, Josh, is a wonderful host and runs a top flight restaurant.

We were disappointed in our meal. The soup and salad were great but the main course, Tomhawk Pork Chop (me) and Pork Medallions (wife) were not real great. Pork Chop was underdone and fatty, pork medallions were not palatable. If we return, we'll try a different selection..

Service was too slow. It was an hour and a half before we received our entrees. The area in which we were seated was very loud. Also, in our reservation we indicated this was a birthday celebration. We were not asked whether we wanted dessert, nor whether the birthday boy would like a complimentary dessert.
