Delicious Chicken Dinner with all the fixings...breads, pates, jams, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, corn, dressing, chicken, gravy...all is yummy! We added the schnitzel but prefer our own at home. The fish dinner is also good.

Had the all you can eat chicken dinner. Not that impressed with the chicken breading, also did not like the stuffing. We were told the mash potatoes were 1/2 instant with 1/2 real. We also got the all you can eat sausage, the sour kraut was just ok. All and all with drinks, our bill was 80.00 for 2 with... More

We did not eat here, but visited the shop in the basement and it is amazing! So many food items to take home,specialty items,cheeses,jams,and other things. The bakery is awesome with a large selection, and the pastries/desserts..to die for. They all looked so perfect. Even if you don't go to the restaurant itself...make sure you visit the basement!

Love the experience but have to say enjoyed the fish and steak over the chicken! Love all the sides and the atmosphere of Zhenders. Was able to bring home carry out that we enjoyed for two days after we returned home. I call that a bonus!

I reviewed Zehnders’s a few years ago when we were there, but I read a few negative reviews & was concerned it might have gone downhill. But no – we returned to Zehnder’s again & if anything they have gotten even better. I can’t figure out the negative reviews. We had a party of 25 & everyone ordered whatever they... More

We were on our way back to our daughter's home in Toledo, OH after spending a week in Mackinaw City and the UP. We decided to visit Bronner's Christmas store having seen the billboards on the way up and return trip. Being late afternoon and needing lunch we searched the net and found good reviews for Zender's in Frankenmuth. Actually... More
