Our family spent our Thanksgiving dinner at Zehnders. The food was absolutely delicious! We chose the family style dinner, though they offered an absolutely beautiful looking Thanksgiving buffet. Every moment was wonderful and the waitstaff went above and beyond.

If you're willing to stand in a long line-up, the family style chicken dinner experience is worth the wait. Weekends have the longest line-up, even in the later afternoon. Try a Friday for shorter lines!

I was somewhat disappointed in the entrees of Zehnder's! I got the chicken club with no special bread which was over toasted too almost burnt! The chicken was tasty but on the dry side! Served with chips & pickle! Other people at the table got the all you can eat chicken dinner which was a lot of food but I... More

When we visit we prefer the more casual "Z Cafe". The food is the exact same as in the dining room & there is a bit more variety. They have the best chicken caesar salad but no need to get the large size salad, the regular size is more then enough.

Our host told us as we went to our table, "You better have brought your appetite", and, boy, was he right! The signature All-You-Can-Eat chicken dinner, served family style, was absolutely delish (standouts were the coleslaw, liver pate, and golden squash). I had the Spiced Apple Cider with my meal, it absolutely hit the spot on a chilly November day.... More

We just love love this place. The food is consistently yummy! Prices are competitive. We especially love the bakery and gift shop! The bakery ships items so we can have their goodness all year long! We stay across the river but eat and shop here...usually right before we head home!

We went for a Sunday night dinner, without a reservation, so there was a wait time of about 25 minutes. My friend and I ordered the all-you-can-eat chicken dinner. I would suggest not eating at all prior to going because they give you a lot of food. Started off with chicken noodle soup which was excellent. Then appetizers: garlic bread... More

This is a classic chicken dinner experience. For about $22 each. Starts off with chicken noodle soup that is generous with the noodles! Also cheese and pate with homemade bread, jam, cottage cheese. The main meal consists of Family style chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, vegetable. You can order refills on any of the food. It is delicious. And the... More

We like the chicken dinners served up family style, but for a change try the Z-Cafe Sunday Brunch. It is also good for lighter meals and very good sandwiches. Be sure to stop at the Visitors Center in Frankenmuth to pick up a discount coupon book. The Zehnder's coupon helped me buy a very nice Christmas gift in their gift... More
