Best Restaurant in Gaylord

You can't go wrong eating here..Hospitality at it's finest and it starts at the front door. Don't be afraid to sit in the bar area..fun atmosphere and great people watching area. the dining room is more intimate and quiet for those moments with friends and family. Great food, old favorites and new... read more

The atmosphere was very noisy and everyone at the bar were trying to talk louder than others to be heard. Make sure you take your credit cards because this restaurant was very $$$$. Fine dining prices for a saloon atmosphere

We just ate here due to tripadvisor reviews. My sliders were great, however if you have kids with you read on. I have three young kids who shared a pepperoni pizza, my wife had a personal pizza and I had the sliders. My wife and I each had one drink each and two kids had sodas. The bill before tip... More

Our meals were exquisite! Filet mignon done Oscar style, oak planked whitefish, filet mignon sliders, and numerous appetizers that were consumed as meals! All done perfectly! Service was spot on. the atmosphere is charming and inviting. No better staff anywhere! Definitely my favorite restaurant ever!

There are 2 places I'd go for a special dinner in Gaylord and Bennethums is one of them. Specials really are worth trying they are always terrific and the by the glass wines are the same. You pay a little more for awesome food. When we go out I want awesome food and wine, not discounted loss leader leftovers. I... More

I had the filet slider and was very impressed at the flavor and quality of the slider. The portion was good for the price I paid. The service was also good. I will be back here in the future.

Had a nice meal here on the way home from the Upper Peninsula. The restaurant is about a mile off of I-75. I had the special that day which was grilled salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, and asparagus. All were great. I also had a side salad. Nothing special on the salad. Price of the special was $32 and the price... More

Yes, they are a bit pricey but we decided to try their happy hour special, 4-6 1/2 off drinks and appetizers. The drinks were tasty and packed a punch, the feta flatbread was to die for. We stayed around for Sicilian pizza and it was the best I've had in years. It seems that this time of day the place... More

We were traveling home from the U. P. and noticed billboards for Bennethums and thought we should check it out. It's off the main drag but easy enough to get to. The decor inside was really nice to gaze upon while having a very nice dinner but for the price should have been better.

We found this restaurant from reviews on TripAdvisor. Warm, friendly greeting - Dana was our server - friendly, well informed with menu recommendations - we shared the crab/artichoke dip - very good - our entrees were lamb chops, and rib eye - both cooked perfectly and very well seasoned. We were glad we came!
