I grew up coming to Oma's with my family. I have very distinct memories of their french toast. Now 20 years later their french toast is the same as I remember it when I was 5 years old. I highly recommend breakfast here.

Good Afternoon Katrina L Thank you for reminiscing with us about your memories from eating in Oma's Dining Room at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Some things are good to remain the same and obviously the French Toast made with the Bavarian Inn Stollen bread was one of those things. We also have a very good Banana Nut Bread French toast...

Ok, not too authentic. I am a Kraut-Sausage was wimpy without any flavor. Potato pancakes were fine I yearn for a much more legit & hardy attempt at German fare with all of the spices. This was politically correct Kraut food. Nothing distasteful, simply disappointing. Polite staff and solid presentation. Give it to them with all of the ZEST! You... More

Good German-leaning menu. Excellent food and service. A great thing: here and at the Inn, the server said "I'll be right back with your change" rather than the very annoying "Do you want any change?" which always makes me say "Of course!" and leave a smaller tip. I highly recommend Oma's.

My grandson and I had breakfast there on July 12th. The Belgian Waffle with blueberries and whipped cream was to die for. We also ate there for dinner on the 10th and sat outside for dinner. Service was slow but the servers were trying. The guitar player was good.

My husband and I went for lunch and had bratwurst on a bun with sauerkraut and my husband had a southwestern burger with fries and applesauce (was supposed to be coleslaw but they had ran out, lucky for my husband who hates coleslaw and loves applesauce). Great meal, we weren't hungry for dinner after. Big portions and great price ($26)

Description
Oma's Restaurant is a quaint Bavarian theme Restaurant serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Oma's (Meaning Grandma's) is located within the Bavarian Inn Lodge and hosts locals and day trip visitors as well as hotel guests. It is a "best kept" secret for having short or no waits at lunch time in Frankenmuth when other restaurants are lined out the door. American and German fare are served and pizza is made from scratch to your liking! Enjoy some of the most FUN servers in the region with great food.
