convenient but just ok

excellent, friendly service and convenient location as we stayed right in the attached Bavarian Inn Lodge. The good was just ok, but the prices were great. We would have ordered differently, but they were out of several of the specials.

Food was very good, and well priced. Same as the Bavarian Inn Restaurant, just not the huge family style serving. Although I may have missed that on the menu. Would go again.

Oma's Restaurant's breakfast buffet is amazing. Every dish is delicious and light years beyond what you would get anywhere else. Best biscuits and gravy I have ever had.

My husband and I were very hungry from a long road trip to the Bavarian Inn. When we entered, we were greeted and seated by a very nice hostess. However, the hostess was the best part of the experience. The server was not very attentive, the food was not fresh, the food also was cold on the inside, and it... More

We stayed a weekend at Bavarian Inn Lodge. In the morning we got up and went to Oma's for breakfast. $7.99 was a great price for pancakes, sausage, several different kinds of eggs, bacon, danishs, cereal, as well as other breakfast foods. For dinner we made a reservation for 12 and the table was ready for us. The waitress was... More

The food is pretty good and the overall experience is too. I would dine there again in the future. Good alternative to heading out one of the other restaurants in the bitter cold months.
