I must admit to being an absolute addict of this establishment. I am a true food lover and enjoy not just the food but the experience I have every time I visit Josh and the staff at Bennethum's. My wife and I now judge all other meals against Bennethum's and as of yet have not found even a close match.... More

We would not have tried this place if not for the great reviews...and they were right! Sit at the bar or high tops for great happy hour prices. Stay there for your meal or move into the dining room. Food was excellent and creative.

Great food from the burgers to the shrimp dishes! Excellent wine selection but the coconut margarita is my favorite cocktail. Theresa and Paige are wonderful servers - always attentive with great smiles. Do not leave with out one of Carols deserts. Seriously - get the desert to go if you have no room left for another bite!

We had to wait for a table with a reservation but it was not exactly the restaurant's fault. We had the Artichoke and Crab dip and it was delicious. The home made bread was excellent. We all enjoyed our meals- ribeye, perch, ahi tuna, salmon, seafood trio pasta. Service was great! Would definitely come back.

Was looking forward to this outing but wasn't impressed. Our group had to wait, the food was just tasty but the selections were great.

Delicious food, excellent service, "Up North" ambience! The monthly Wine Dinners are a culinary treat. This is truly a great place "where everyone knows your name". Absolutely the best restaurant in Gaylord!

Honestly one of the best meals you will ever have! The Bennethum family does it right. Josh truly makes you welcome. DO NOT LEAVE without one of Carols famous deserts. Take it to go if you have to! We celebrate all family milestones here - from grand daughters sweet 16 (she requests Josh's baby lamb chops) to dinners with good... More
