Favorite family restaurant spots to visit.

We like to visit Frankenmuth 1 to 2 times a year and always eat at one of our favorite restaurants Zehnders. Food is always good and the service is excellent. Potions are large and you won't be disappointed. If you're really hungry, get the family style meals, it's all you can eat. Check out... read more

I've never really been a fan of the local chicken dinners. Much is made of them but I always found the chicken to be a bit dry and the meal itself expensive for what you get. Although the family loves them and books get togethers yearly.

Great family restaurant with large selection of items. German restaurant with something for everyone. They are famous for their chicken dinner and rightfully so. Fantastic side dishes included with the meal.

We ate late on a Saturday night and got the Fried Chicken Dinner for the three of us. It's a plentiful amount of food, with soup, coleslaw, breads and spreads, veggies, mashed potatoes, noodles, and of course, the chicken, which is fabulous. We'll be back!

This is a good place for authentic good chicken. Kind of expensive but the food is worth it. If youre not VERY hungry steer clear of this place. There's no light ordering here.

I love the cafe in the basement. The food is the same as upstairs but you can get smaller quantities. The food is hot and very delicious. I love the green beans and parkerhouse rolls. We stop here every time foot Frankenmuth.

We've been enjoying Zehnder's chicken for over 50 years. We spent our honeymoon in Frankenmuth in 1967. We visit every year and we will be back in February of 2017 for our 50th Wedding Anniversary

My favorite place in town. I always get the Family Style Chicken Dinner. It is the highlight of my trip to Frankenmuth. Great food and wonderful service. I love the Bakery and the shops in the lower level. Don't miss out when you visit Frankenmuth!

We ate here after visiting the huge Christmas store nearby. The town itself is really pretty and worth seeing. I got some kind of chicken dish and it was really tasty but the best part is the bakery that's in the same building. THe Zehnder's bakery sells HUGE doughnuts, chocolate bacon and all sorts of amazing treats. It's worth visiting... More
