The atmosphere was very nice, the staff was exceptional, and the food was even better. They have a wide array of food to... read more

Stopped in for the first time. We have been passing by this place for years and just discovered it . Excellent selection of craft/micro brews on tap. I had the mushroom soup, tossed salad and the kasespaetzle ( a side dish). My husband had the perch dinner with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. He ordered the Caesar salad. Everything was...

My wife and I have been coming to Bennethum's since 2010 when we bought a place in Gaylord. We love going out to eat and have been to many very nice and upscale restaurants both downstate in the Detroit area and other parts of the country. Bennethum's is top notch!!! and holds up very well against any 5 star place.... More

We love coming here. The food is always great. This visit was no different. The cocktails are amazing and we love the happy hour. There is a section of the menu that changes monthly to a different theme. We love this about the restaurant. we are never disappointed when we visit.

The restaurant is a nice change from all the chains and fast food in the area. We were just shopping in Gaylord so stopped in for quick dinner before heading home. They have theme specials that change each month. This month was Greek and I really enjoyed my feta prawns. They were delicious. Dessert was also good and homemade. Nice... More

I usually enjoy what I have here, but I feel like they try to do/be too many things. It would be better if they focused the menu more to do a few things really well. Service is usually pretty good.
