This is a nice restaurant for a couples night out, or a relaxing gathering of friends. The food is very good (excellent fish and steaks) with a nice presentation. And it is always busy, even though it's a bit off the beaten track (about 8 miles or so south of downtown Gaylord across from Otsego Lake), so it's pretty obvious... More

Went to Bennethum's for dinner tonight and it was outstanding. Liz was our waitress and she did an exceptional job. She explained the menu items and specials thoroughly and when we had a question on a wine (the wine list is extensive) she got Josh to review several wines for us. She also went over many of their programs including... More

The menu has interesting items. The bar has a pretty good tap list and cocktails. Near Gaylord it is a great place to make a dinner stop heading north.

My new favorite restaurant in all of Michigan. We were in the Gaylord area for 3 days on business. After eating here the first night, we returned for each of the remaining nights. We looked online at other menus but no one offered the selections we could get here, and we were convinced no one would prepare food as well.... More

I have been going here for several years now. From the moment I walked in, the staff and owners go above and beyond to make you feel at "home". Staff is always attentive and willing to meet your needs. Food always has come out on time, hot, and of the two+ years that I have been going, I have never... More

Went there tonight for a dinner date with my wife. We were seated immediately and greeted by a very helpful and pleasant server. We ordered drinks and appetizers which came out timely. After receiving these, we ordered dinner and the food came out just as we were finishing the appetizers. Everything was wonderful and perfectly prepared. Would give this restaurant... More
