The fried chicken was not very hot. Vegetables were not well cooked and some had brown spots. The service was indifferent. Prices are high. Downstairs bakery prices are obscenely high. The place has been much better in the past.

This is a family must whenever we are in the area. The service is always amazing and the all you can eat chicken dinner is never a bad choice. If I could eat here every week I would!

Our first trip back to Frankenmuth in about 5 years, with a stop off at our favorite restaurant, Zehnders! Arrived just ahead of the Sunday crowd, so didn't really have a wait to be seated. As always, lots of good selection on their Sunday Buffet including shrimp, beef and of course their famous chicken! Really, this is like a holiday... More

We wanted to find out how the chicken meals had fared, since our last visit years ago. But we almost decided to pass up the visit, as we waited at a neglected station, while staff scurried all around us, but paid us no attention. After we were finally seated, and had eaten, we were given someone else's check. That party... More

If you have a Zehnders frequent dining card you get a free all you can eat dinner anytime in your birthday month. We have been coming here for many years to take part in the christmas celebration and my free meal. What I like more than the chicken is the homemade coleslaw. It is the best coleslaw I have had!!!

We have come here over the years. It seems like the quality of the food has declined. We had the family style chicken dinner, and while there was a lot of food, for the most part, it was just okay and on the bland side.

Had a blast here! Fun things to do from toddlers to adults! Kids had a blast in the arcade and pool/slides, adults got to chill in the hottub and top off the night with an adult beverage!

You never lack for food when you come here!!! Have been coming here since I was a kid, and usually have not been disappointed. If you get the family sized dinner, so much food, and you leave stuffed and can take more home. I would suggest getting enrolled in the Zehnder's Rewards, where when you reach a certain amount, you... More

This was a fun trip was able to take the entire family party of eight. Two small ones under six and six adults. We all had the family style chicken dinner. It wasn't a disappointment with everyone leaving with a full belly.
