I really like the Z's Cafe in the lower level (basement) It's cafeteria style, and they have a lot to choose from. You take your tray, and go along and choose what you like. I usually get there early when they are not busy. It's a different experience than the all you can eat chicken upstairs, (they do have chicken... More

Stopped in on a Saturday in October about 2:00 and waited in line for about 35 minutes. We were seated and the waitress came but did not let us know the different types of meals you could get, i.e. buffet, off the menu or family style. Took us two different times to finally get the options. We chose the family... More

We first ate here 5 years ago and the food was mjust as good this time. The restaurant is very popular and you may have to wait to find a table so it is best to book in advance but it is worth the wait. The food is excellent! The main dining room is bright and nicely furnished and you... More

First off, we always have a chicken dinner when in Frankenmuth. It is a tradition dating back quite a while. While we were served promptly and the food was good, it was just mediocre this trip. The chicken was nothing special, neither were the sides. I would love to say we will be back but I just don't know. Maybe... More

My husband ordered a sandwich that had turkey & gravy on it. Or maybe it was chicken. I ordered the Hazelwood that had chicken, cheese, bacon, and a little coleslaw on a croissant. The croissant was flakey and good, but big enough to share. Loved it! Also the server brought a bowl of slaw for us to try. It was... More

A pleasant experience the chicken is the featured special. Pleasant surroundings. Family oriented with a large following among seniors. A institution since the 50's

The best resteraunt in town with a terrific chicken dinner. Downstairs is a large bakery and gift store that is just great. The bakery and candy is to die for good. We love the birds nests and fruit tarts and cakes and breads all just great. The fancier eating area is upstairs but you can also eat downstairs in a... More

Packed us in a conference room like sardines. Food and service was good, decor was terrible. $70 for an 83 year old and my wife and I for a few pieces of chicken, and a couple of sides.
