As a member of the Perks Club, I get a lot of discounts at Bavarian Inn, including a free meal on my birthday. We love the family style dining and the food is always good.

Family dinner for 16, service was spot on as usual. Chicken delicious. Inexpensive choices on the children's menu. And everyone loves the ice cream for dessert.
