We ate here for our anniversary with friends. We wanted a bit of everything so we ordered the comibnation plates. We loved the traditional stollen, and other family style dishes served with our meal. Great food!

The food was quite good. The serving sizes were more than adequate. The service was good. Other than the decor of the inn and the downstairs shopping, this particular restaurant seemed average overall. Two sandwiches and a coffee were $22.

Got here at 5 today and only had to wait a few minutes. The family chicken dinner was so yummy!! Chicken was moist, cold salad starters were all good followed by delish fried chicken, buttered noodles, moist dressing, etc. It was all good!

The Bavarian Inn special (I forget it's name) was very good. We chose the typical Bavarian foods, as highly recommended by friends and family who were there last year. See Also Zehnders.

We had the chicken dinner. I was.concerned about the number of courses, but the portions were very appropriate. Food was terrific, server was attentive, even during the dinner rush. Food was seasoned nicely, very pleasant

You need to come here empty, since the food will make leave full. They have several family style dinner choices. We like the chicken here. Atmosphere is definitely German and the food is extremely tasty. We selected Bavarian style family meal which is pork chop, rolled beef, and schnitzel. The spread for the meal is unbelievable. Chicken noodle soup first.... More

We always have a very enjoyable experience when we dine here. We usually go for the family style chicken dinner, and it has always been very good. Good food, good service and a very nice atmosphere.

Haven't been to Frankenmuth for quite a while but decided to stop there on a whim. It was a Saturday and the whole town was very busy and crowded but we only had to wait a short time to get seated. The dining room brought back such nice memories of being there as a child and bringing our children there... More
