Each time we visit Frankenmuth & stay at the Bavarian Inn we always make sure we eat at least one meal at Oma's. It is the full menu restaurant on site at the inn. A lot of times hotel restaurants are just not that great out here in mid-America unless you're visiting a major city or hotel chain. Not true... More

We all ordered the wiener schnitzel and instead of being light and thinly pounded it was big chunks of dried out breaded veal. This is suppose to be a German restaurant and they should know how to cook it since it is a German dish. Mashed potatoes and the dumplings were fine but a pile of over cooked carrots with... More

The staff is friendly; however, the food was greasy and not good at all! My husband and I got the Brat and Kraut and it tasted like it was microwaved and then soaked in grease. The fries were inedible. My kids got pizza and a burger... both weren't able to stomach much of their meals. Lemonade tasted like Kool Aid.... More
