This is a great place to get together with family and friends, especially during the holiday seasons or any special occasion. The service and food are always top notch.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Their food and service are wonderful. Try something different from their German selections. You'll get plenty to eat if you select a dinner item, the variety of relishes and sides that come along with the meal fill you up. Meals range from $10-$20 (+/-).

“Huge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Plenty to choose from and we could sit in any one of three areas depending on what kind of menu we wanted to select from. Friendly and fast service.

“Starch, and more starch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Our tour group was booked for this "wonderful" dinner while in Frankenmuth. We received the all you can eat, family style, chicken dinner. The salads were fine to start, and if I realized what the rest of the meal entailed, I would have eaten more of the starters. The chicken was mediocre, and the sides consisted of mashed squash, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and buttered noodles. The squash was good, but was not enough to make up for the lack of other vegetables. The building was cute, as was much of Frankenmuth, but the whole effect of the meal was a great disappointment, and made the visit to the town less enjoyable than it could have been.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your visit. I will be sure to share your comments with the Chef about all the starch items and work to supplement the meal with more vegetables and variety. Again thank you and we hope to serve your family again in the future!

Our meal was delicious as always....everything cooked to perfection. The service was quick, yet you never feel rushed. Staff is always top-notch!
