A little pricey. Nice atmosphere. Good service. Says they are famous for their fried chicken. It was very good but I've had better. I found it a little dry.

Beautiful, historical building with a little nook of underground shops to explore. My husband and I went there for lunch and the buttered noodles were absolutely wonderful! The amount of food you get for the all-you-can-eat chicken dinner is astronomical, and everything was delicious!

Had the family style chicken dinner. Delicious! We had chicken elsewhere in town and this was by far better. Great side dishes. Loved the noodles. Real mash potatoes and great gravy.

Probably the best chicken I have ever had. We left totally stuffed and satisfied. It may be all you can eat but you wont finish the first serving

Been coming here off and on over the past 20 years. Don't know if the novelty has worn off or if the chicken has changed but this time I left very full and a bit disappointed in the breading and taste of the chicken. I think we will go across the street next time and give them a try.

My husband had the Sunday buffet. Thank goodness for the fish because the chicken was dry. Gluten free meals were tasty, half roast chicken!

My family and I recently visited Frankenmuth and wanted to eat at an "authentic" restaurant to get the full "Frankenmuth experience". Please, please, please, DON'T waste your time or money on this restaurant. I made reservations the day before as past visits to Frankenmuth proved this place to be busy. I honestly don't know why anyone would stand in line... More
