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.

Everyone knows about the restaurant upstairs. But there's a Chef's Cafe downstairs that serves the same food, buffet line style, There are family dinner options priced very reasonably, from 4 to 6 packs, each with chicken, sides that include butter noodles, mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls, dressing, mac and cheese, cottage cheese or salad. We ordered two six packs and... More

We've been for the Famous Chicken dinners in the past so we thought we would order off the menu instead as we didn't want all that food for just two of us. Wow were we surprised when all the same side dishes came out as well as our entrees. I would thoroughly recommend the veal schnitzel. The veggie topping was... More
