First of all, I really recommend signing up over a month in advance for the Zehnder's reward club. Among other perks, you get a free chicken dinner during your birthday month. This time our dinner reward also came with the added perk of a free ornament from Bronner's. The chicken dinner pleased my whole family. The amount and variety of... More

Everyone raves about this place... I went a few years ago and didn't think it was very good. I assumed I just went on a bad day. Went again this past July. It was still terrible and expensive.

We have been here twice. Our first visit was our wedding night. We got there late n seeing our clothing (I wasn't wearing a normal wedding dress) the host asked if we'd come from a dance. When we told him we'd just been married he congratulated us n said hold on for just a moment. When he came back he... More

Loved the comfort food and the chicken is fabulous! Normally, I don't like fried chicken because it tends to be too greasy, but this fried chicken had a light batter and wasn't greasy at all. Great mashed potatoes, squash, soup, home made bread with home made jams, dessert!

Zehnder's has long since been discovered -- we had lunch on a weekday and still had to wait in line. The food is still very good, without a trace of pretentiousness to make it taste worse. The staff is very efficient, as always. The timing between courses was rushed to the point that we had hardly started our appetizer when... More

I have been going to Zehnders since I was a child. Love it there, its a must have for our Frankenmuth visit. I don't get the usual chicken dinner, I get the chicken in phyllo, chicken, cheese wrapped in phyllo and with a choice of either parmesan cheese or raspberry sauce. I get both and combined them. Whole new taste.... More
