The "Fabulous Chicken Dinner", much recommended by other friends, we wondered just how fabulous can chicken be? It is just chicken served with a flair, very,very similar to that at the Bavarian Inn, but I think is a bit lower priced than the other. I think both restaurants are owned by the Zehnder Family, and although the server (prompt, punctual,... More

We enjoyed our lunches. The food was very good, and we didn't need to have much of a dinner later. Our server, Matt, was efficient, and very personable.

Moist and tasty chicken with mashed potatoes dressing and cabbage salad. Good food! Atmosphere is geared for the masses. Pleasant, but impersonal

Great place to relax and eat. We had the family style chicken meal, which is their specialty, and definitely the way to go if you are with a group.

What is there not to love about Zehnder's?? If you are visiting Frankenmuth for the first time you MUST stop here. Words do not describe how good the food is! Be sure to visit the market place in the lower level...for us, the cheese spread is a must! On our last visit, the staff let our children have a peek... More

Have been going to this restaurant for many many years on our family's annual trip to Frankenmuth in December. A great chicken dinner for a reasonable price. Family style with all the chicken you can eat. The coleslaw is out of this world. Homemade noodles and mashed potatoes and gravy. Several kinds of bread made right in the bakery at... More

Zehnder's bakery is really outstanding - but if you go - and you don't have an aversion to walnuts or sweet pastry items, do yourself a favor and get a package or 2 of their Butterhorns. They are the most delicious pastry - I had them for the very first time years ago and have been hooked ever since. Also... More

Like most, we had the all you can eat Chicken. There seems to be this argument on who's chicken is better, this restaurant or the Bavarian Inn Restaurant across the street. Well I'll tell you that my family and I ate at both and we came to the conclusion that the Bavarian Inn Restaurant was better. Chicken for both about... More
