WOW!

"There aren't many steaks that are worth $69.00 but this one is", that was what my associate, who has raised prize beef cattle all his life had to say about his rib-eye. I had the ahi tuna appetizer, it was better than I could have imagined. He had the lamb chop appetizer and felt the same. I had... read more

After a day of slopes, the boys and I knew where were we were going for a wonderful meal that starts with great appetizers and scrumptious bread. We ordered the artichoke crab dip and Sicilian cigars. These started the tastebuds off well and then were followed by the bread hot out of the oven. Our entrees arrived - Honey Bbq... More

Bennethum's Northern Inn is wonderful on every level! A convivial atmosphere, comfortable and well-appointed seating areas, varied and ambitious food and wine menus with great specials including a new theme and menu each month, a super happy hour, an engagingly warm and efficient staff, and Josh, the owner and chef, could not be more gracious. You can spend big or... More

Nice dinner with my son after a day of snowmobiling. The Sicilian "cigars" app was a delight as were the French Onion soup and mushroom bisque. The schnitzel was authentic. Nice drink/wine list.

Bennethum's is a wonderful place complete with fantastic food, great wine list and super service. The family who owns and runs the restaurant is absolutely great. I have eaten at Bennethum's at least 40 times and have never been disappointed. Their happy hour is also fantastic. I could not recommend a better place to go. I hope to go there... More

We stopped in for a steak in the middle of a snowstorm after finding this restaurant on Trip Advisor. We ordered one of the high end monthly special steaks @ $69. It was expensive but absolutely amazing and worth every penny. We also ordered a $10 chicken, bacon, cheese and avocado sandwich and it was also amazing. Our server Dana... More

We were here for a mini family reunion a couple of days ago. One brother who is known as a 'food snob' gave Bennethum's a ten out of ten, but mine was an eight out of ten. None of the group had a bad meal. A lot of different items were ordered and all were very good.

We have been to Bennethums many times over the years and have always enjoyed the food. It was always very well prepared and priced appropriately. It seems that prices have really skyrocketed over the last couple of years to the point where it has become very expensive. The menu is still excellent, with something for everyone. The wine list is... More
