We spent Friday and Saturday night at the hotel. We enjoyed the expanded waterpark and newer restaurant called mushroom grill. For hotel food this was prepared very well and priced very fairly. The first night we ordered 214 inch pizzas. When they were served you're probably closer to 16 to 18... read more

Great little restaurant within Zehnders with a view of the waterpark from our table. Lots of choices for breakfast, we didn't eat lunch or dinner at this restaurant. Our server was helpful smiling constantly, even stopped for a picture with my Grandson even though she was busy. Thanks Elf Hollow Café.

This quaint little cafe' is a favorite of ours whenever we visit Frankenmuth and stay at Zenders Splash Village. There are some unique eats, the nachos are truly delicious. The service is top notch and friendly. I highly recommend eating at the Elf Hollow Cafe

The food and service were very good and the prices were reasonable for a buffet. Prices for children were a little more than half of the adult price. Freshly squeezed orange juice was a bonus!

I loved the fact that it is a full service restaurant inside the waterpark. Don't have to dress up and leave the facility for a good sit down meal. And best of all, it is affordable, many parks like that have restaurants but take advantage of the face you are a "captive" audience on the pricing. Elf Hollow does not,... More

All you can eat, unlimited fresh squeezed orange juice, hot food galore. Ate lots. Only downside was you had to ask for butter.
