From the start of walking in the door and having a WIFI issue my Easter night dinner was one for the books. Mandy Borsenik went out of her way to help me and also make sure my table was saved. The staff at the restaurant made me and my guest feel very at home the food was big good and... More

We hadn't been to Frankenmuth for a chicken dinner for years and since it was a nice day for a drive we decided to go. If you want to go at a time of year when there aren't any crowds to fight, late April seems to be perfect. We chose the Bavarian inn over zenders because it was rated higher... More

I’m sorry the food was not served as hot as you would have liked. We do our best to bring the food immediately from the kitchen to the dining room. Our noodle soup is made from the broth of the chicken we serve, and all of our food, including the sides, are made from scratch and served fresh. Could you... More

The restaurant was very crowded, which I think is a reflection of the ambience, the food and service. All these three were very good but the ambience was really the best part of the place. The portion size was huge and is easily shareable. The food tasted fine. Interestingly, the entrée plate of a good mix of healthy items (surprise!)... More

We have eaten there before, always a great meal, the chicken is some of the best I've ever had and love their chicken salad and bean salad. The service is good. They make sure you have everything you want.

We had a great dinner here. We come for lunch time but order from the dinner menu because you can get the family style dinner. You get a bunch of sides and salads along with your choice of chicken or chicken plus other meat (like jäger schnitzel which we always get). It is expensive but you get a ton of... More

Last weekend we traveled to the charming town of Frankenmuth with our adult son and both sets of grandparents for my son's 23 rd birthday. We had 1pm lunch reservations on a beautiful Saturday, glad we did since it was extremely busy. My mother is Bavarian & I cook a lot of German meals so am familiar with how these... More

The food was lukewarm and not very good at all. Over priced and not very clean. The only thing good about this place was our waiter. Everything else was dated and couldve been better

Just as good as its big sister across the street, minus the giant bakery in the basement. Of course one can cross the street and just visit the bakery. Good food. Buttered noodles. Yum.

This was one of our highlights of our stay! The food was awesome. My daughter is a very picky eater and she loved the chicken. It may seem pricey but it is worth every penny!
