We frequently visit Gaylord & always enjoyed Bennethums. Trip advisor reported good reviews of this restaurant & decided to try it for lunch. We were seated in a booth in the front right corner. Waited over 10 minutes then went to hostess & asked where our server was. Our waitress arrived saying no one told her we were here. Then... More

Every dish and drink served was expertly done. Taste, presentation are wonderful. From starters, sandwiches, signature cocktails. All done with style. Yet the atmosphere is casual, with unique style.

I would butcher the spelling but this fish is a house specialty. It was delicious! Served with a smoked tomatillo salsa. Yum

Ate lunch here with some friends. I ordered Caesar salad with chicken. It was good, but not great. I eat these quite often and feel I'm a good judge. My husband had a hamburger, and same review. It was ok, but nothing extraordinary. Our portions were enough, but not large. Our friend, who ordered grouper, enjoyed her meal and it... More

Extremely impressed. A large cut above they typical diners and tavern food of Northern Michigan. Carefully prepared, homemade food. I had a grouper piccata over homemade tomato pasta which was sublime. Extensive beer selection, focusing on Michigan brews. Enthusiastic service. Bonus was the kitschy and eclectic gift shop attached to the Dogg; one could get lost for hours in there.

Don't miss this placed! You can't make a wrong choice off the menu- everything is fantastic! I also had my 2 yr old grandson with me. The staff was so accommodating- treated us like family. Won't visit Gaylord again without coming here!

From the food to the atmosphere, hands down the best meal I've had in years. As a chef myself I have to say, the food is absolutely spot on.

Excellent food and great atmosphere and staff. They have almost any type of alcohol you can imagine. The food might take a little longer to get you that usual but it's well worth the wait. It's also a little pricey but overall well worth it. Not a good choice for kids

Thank Jenn H
