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.

Bennethum's is a family run restaurant that has consistently good food and attentive service. Josh (owner's son) is not only a great chef but "meets and greets" the patrons to get feed back. When in northern Michigan, you don't want to miss this establishment for a memorable dinner and super "happy hour"!!

This restaurant is the place to go if you want an up north casual experience with an excellent meal. The rustic decor greats you and let's you know it is time to leave the stress of city living behind. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive; the food delicious. I recommend including a salad with the pricey entrees...cost is more in... More

Seems like we can never get out of there without spending $100 per couple, the food is good, drinks are a little high priced, wait staff very attentive just a little expensive in my humble opinion. As usual I will return to this establishment.
