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

If you are looking for great food, extremely friendly staff and reasonable prices, then you have found the right place. I go to Bennethum's as often as I can and I have never once been disappointed. Comfortable atmosphere and simply great people. Highly recommended.

Dined at bar for happy hour. Bartenders were spot on with knowledge and hospitality. Terrific selections for food, all drinks were half price, 4-6pm. Good crowd, nice atmosphere. Highly recommend

This place has a long reputation for fine dining and excellent food. We cannot vouch for that though. We would stop in for cocktails and appetizers before going home for dinner. Not open on Monday, but every other day had happy hour(s) starting at four o'clock when the doors opened. People started coming in right away and took advantage of... More

We drove into town late from Detroit and, even though they were only supposed to be open another hour or less, they kept telling us to take our time. The waitress ended up singing for us and the food and wine were delicious. Wonderful atmosphere, food and company.

We dined there for the first time this past week. My wife had the Cod and I had the the Pork Schnitzel. Both were outstanding dishes. The Cod had fresh tomatoes and a great sauce. My Schnitzel was three large breaded pork medallions with a wonderful mushroom cream sauce. The Grand Marnier Creme Brûlée was to die for.

The food was quite good, but way too expensive. Luckily, we were there during happy hour and enjoyed some very good beer w/appetizers that were reasonable and very tasty. My husband thought the perch dinner was way over-priced, but tasty.

I love the fact that every time I go to Bennethems the meal is better than the last one!!! The staff knows just what is in each plate on the menu. They are required to taste the theme items before the menu starts and they can answer any questions you might have. I love this place either with my spouse... More

We're not big eaters so went at 4:30 for HH. Had the calamari and mushroom bruschetta; both excellent and lots of it. Dana the server was very friendly and helpful in choosing beer and apps. Bar was full; nice atmosphere and if you just want some apps. and a tipple; you can't beat it

The inside of this place is beautiful. I am from Florida so seeing this type of cabin style restaurant was a neat sight. I ordered a blonde draft beer and then an Omission bottle beer. I really liked the Omission (pale ale). We went during happy hour therefore there were half price appetizers. We had the crab rangoons, calamari (spicy... More
