Quaint place, good food

The food was quite good. The serving sizes were more than adequate. The service was good. Other than the decor of the inn and the downstairs shopping, this particular restaurant seemed average overall. Two sandwiches and a coffee were $22.

I've had the pleasure of enjoying great family time at the Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn. We meet up a few times a year at the Bavarian Inn to relax, have fun, enjoy the beautiful scenery and visit all the shops. I highly recommend The Bavarian Inn to EVERYONE! As my grandson calls it. " His Castle"

After a hard day of shopping at the Birch Run Outlet Mall my wife and I made the short drive to Frankenmuth and we weren't disappointed. We both ordered the chicken dinners that come with numerous sides. Our waitress Ellie was attentive during the entire meal. Everything tasted great and we topped it off with ice cream that's included. A... More

Were were here on 06/11/2015 Really... this place is "Eek! Methinks not!"... just like the one star rating says. From all the reviews we read, we was expecting some amazing German food. We were very much disappointed. My heritage is Swiss and my wife's is German. We know good German food. This place falls way short. Service too was less... More

Thank you for your review. However, it was so disappointing to read. I apologize for the visit falling short on your expectations on our style of cooking and the family recipes from our German heritage. I know sometimes the regions can be different in preparation and flavor profile. We do try our best to appeal to all our guests needs.... More
