Great restaurant, Creative Chef

My husband and I live within 20 miles of this restaurant and it has been a favorite since we moved "up north" ten years ago. The food is consistently good and the owner does a great job in adding different and creative items to the menu. This is a "special occasion" restaurant as there are not many... read more

This is our favorite restaurant when we want something special. The changing menu always keeps us interested and the variety of beers on tap are mostly local brews. Very helpful service. We have never been disappointed.

Bennethum's has great food and a fine selection of draft and bottle beer as well as a full bar. The menue changes every month but the basics are always there for guests who don't like change. We are always treated well here.

This was my second time at this establishment. The kids menu is minimal and all 10 bucks each. So my two year old shared the pot roast with me. The pot roast was half fat. When I told the waitress all she said was sorry. She did nothing to fix the problem. At $18 a plate i would like to... More

Stopped in for Valentine's day and place was packed. Our server was very nice and thoughtful. She knew the menu and offered suggestions. Food was amazing! We had the scallops meal and walleye meal. Both were large portions and very flavorful. The mushroom bisque is a must! Highly recommend this place!

LOVED this place, went with a friend and did the "shared" dinner deal...lamb chops, soup, bread, bone in rib-eye and crab legs...this was all for 2 people and was only $89.00...food was EXCELLENT. Our server Danielle was exceptonal and she explained that everyone that works there tastes the food and that allows them to speak with experience on the offerings.... More

We ate at this wonderful restaurant in January. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable for the quality and level of service. We especially enjoy that they have monthly themes in which they change their menu, very clever and very tasty! January is Greek month and I had the lamb chops which were outstanding. We will be...

I feel this establishment Is overpriced. The perch was excellent as it should be for 21 dollars without much of anything else. The kids meals were all over 10 bucks! My wife ordered the tortellini and it was like the chef dumped a bottle of salt. They are one of the few upscale places in town, so I don't think... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are glad you thought the Perch were excellent. That dish is one of our best sellers every month. We do indeed have a kids menu with six homemade items on it, however, the only item over ten dollars is the Filet Mignon with French Fries. I’m sorry that you... More

What a wonderful find in Northern Michigan! The food is outstanding. The chef is highly creative, changing the menu monthly for a variety of different themes. The quality of food is first class. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable. Fine wines, great food and good company make a winning combination.
