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, my planked whitefish, recommended by the server, was smothered in paprika and was cooked until dry.

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.
