A must go to place. We made a reservation based on all the reviews and we were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. We had the calamari, which was cooked to perfection. The parmesan encrusted walleye was awesome, I ordered the shrimp Creole fettucini pasta, I was advised it was spicy which I like... needless to say... More

Bennethum's is a very nice restaurant with very good food but is a little on the pricey side. Expect to spend for a regular entree between $20 and $30. Draft beer at $6.00 a glass. I had the perch and it was very good but the entree and a beer was $30 (before tip) with no salad or soup.

Great food, great atmosphere, and casual dress environment. We really enjoyed everything about the food from the appetizers to the desserts. Waitress was great. Just a relaxing place to eat.

We ate at Bennethum's North Inn last week as we visited northern Michigan and eventually Mackinaw Island. What a fabulous place this is! The walleye was unreal. I had the ribs and they were superb. The service is wonderful as well. Well worth the trip!

Based on the reviews, six of us had dinner after a day of golf. For the Gaylord area, the restaurant is better than average, but it's all relative, as it seems there are not that many decent restaurants in Gaylord, so the bar hasn't been set all that high. The service was good and the food arrived somewhat promptly. Sadly,... More

From the mussels appetizer to the lake perch entree...you cannot go wrong with anything you order on this menu. The atmosphere and staff are awesome as well. When you go ask for Kari. Shes the epitome of a great sever and will make your dining experience one to remember.

Excellent food, great up north atmosphere, excellent service. The entree portions were very large - only wished they had 1/2 sizes for the smaller appetite. Will definitely return if in the area.

You can't beat this place for quality of food, atmosphere and and service. I've been there once a year for the past three years and every time have come away highly satisfied. The staff are very personable, enthusiastic and helpful. The atmosphere is relaxed, informal and bright. My only hesitation is in the pricing, but then high quality usually comes... More
