I have to start with the fact that I prefer to eat a vegetarian diet for health reasons and because I just really don't like meat. I also live a crazy, chaotic life and sometimes I just have to roll. So... We recently enjoyed a visit to Zehnder's restaurant with a pretty large group (20ish), and I realized too late... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat while visiting. Make sure to go hungry to eat the family style buffet. The cafe downstairs is also very tasty and affordable.

A little over a month ago, I visited this place with a family member. Had a good experience overall. So when we were visiting Frankenmuth this time, we decided to go back there for an all you can eat family style chicken dinner. Upon walking in, we were told to get in line. After standing in line for 10 minutes,... More

From outside, Zehnder's is really pretty. The interior is old and was not what I was expecting, but I appreciated the historical aspects. It was very, very busy. We did not end up eating in the main dining area. We did go downstairs to their "market" but were not thrilled by any of the options. It would have been nice... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I'm a little confused by your review, as I'm not sure if you ate downstairs or not. Please forgive me as maybe I'm misreading it. We can be very busy, especially in the summer and on fall weekends and of course during the holidays. We do offer reservations, and would... More

We didn't eat there but did stroll through the gift shop and bakery. It's worth the walk downstairs to see. Bakery wasn't as nice as Bavarian Inn but was good.

Thank you for posting. I think our gift shop and bakery may be our best kept secrets. the selections we have in our bakery are all made fresh daily and contain no preservatives. I think I've eaten too many to count over the years. It is a must visit while in Frankenmuth. Thank you again for the review. Shelby Albrecht... More

Sometimes traveling solo I prefer not to eat in the main dining rooms. Zehnders cafe in their marketplace is a great alternative while still being able to get that awesome chicken.

We stopped here for lunch on 7/14 with our family. There were 5 people that included 2 kids that are very picky eaters. I believe our servers name was Ed. He was fantastic and on top of everything! Our daughters ordered the slushy lemonade and they were fabulous! Cole Slaw was brought to the table soon after our drinks. This... More

I have two at home that sound exactly the same way, and they love the meals here, especially the mac-and-cheese.

Par-broiled and deep-fried chicken, mashed potatoes, rich gravy and creamy coleslaw...YUM! We were waiting for this 'experience' in awhile! We hadn't been back to Zehnder's for many years, but were glad that we had the opportunity. It still is classy and delicious, with impeccable service by ladies and gents dressed in traditional German costumes. We were greeted by a well-dressed... More
