This place is a traditional place to dine when one is in Frankenmuth or shopping at Birch Run. Chicken dinners with real potatoes, good slaw, BUTTERED NOODLES, fruit stollen, and that's just for starters. We run up to "the 'Muth" a couple times a year and we have to go here always. The dining rooms seat 1,500 and there's the... More

Had an excellent lunch with family. Our waitress was wonderful. The cole slaw and bread they served before the meal was great. I had the grilled reuben sandwich and I would highly recommend it.

I've eaten at Zehnder's several times. Have always gotten the family style chicken dinner & really enjoyed everything. Their cabbage salad (cole slaw) is the best I've ever had.Everything is so delicious there. Went there one time for the New Years Eve buffet & it was outstanding. Sign up for their birthday club & you get a free chicken dinner... More

We had a great lunch at Zehnders this past Saturday March 22. They are of course famous for their all-you can-eat fried chicken but if you want a lighter meal they offer an excellent lunch menu. I highly recommend the Hazelwood sandwich and the desserts are great too - the lemon swirl cheesecake is to die for. They also have... More

Had a wonderful family meal at Zehnders on Sunday, March 9th. If you like country style cooking and the best fried chicken with all the fixings, then this is a must stop in Frankenmuth. Always best to make a reservation to avoid line-ups. Enjoyed walking around their gift shops and bakery before we ate. You won't be disappointed!

The entertainment (Doug Gabriel Family) was as expected, EXCELLENT!. The food was not as expected, AVERAGE at best. The dinner included chicken and perch. The coating on the chicken was cardboard like and perch tasted as if was reheated from yesterday. Needless to say, very disappointing.

We arrived in the late evening. We were seated right away, however, the table was in a very crowded area. We asked if a booth was available, the hosted said not a problem. She asked us to wait while she cleared it and we were seated. Waitress was very friendly and helpful with a great sense of humour. She was... More

Had a great time! Tons of food and a great date night! I loved the atmosphere and it provided a great setting for a date. It was the day after Valentine's Day and although we didn't have reservations we didn't wait long at all. Great location to be able to walk to the nearby shops and enjoy the night!

We love the place and love the family style meals. The "beginners" - cole slaw, cranberry salad, bread all great. The chicken that they're famous for was just meh. Also got the veal scallopini - also meh. We will go back with our daughter because it was reasonable and satisfactory but really just because it was different, fun, and historical.

Excellent food awesome service by the waitress. My only complaint is its a bit overpriced. The family style dinner is very filling, but again unless your overstuffing yourself its a bit overpriced.
