My wife and I try to eat at this wonderful restaurant at least once a year, while traveling through the lower peninsula of Michigan. Bavarian-attired staff greet you and waiters and all staff are traditionally dressed. The restaurant is HUGE, but you get close personal attention as in a family restaurant, because this and other Frankenmuth restaurants are family/locally owned. There are many, many rooms to this restaurant, with various German themes. The menu is indeed extensive, and though "chicken dinners" are a tradition (for good reason), their German selections are very nice as well. My favorite is their Yeagerschnitzel. Oh my, so much offered. If you have a lighter appetite, ask about their "smaller portions." The basic dessert included is their version of "homemade ice cream" (the only disappointment, and while it is not bad, it is essentially "soft-serve.") They have a wonderful offering of great desserts, at an additional cost. Who has room? My wife and I can hardly separate the food experience at the Bavarian In from the overall Frankenmuth experience. Please take time to stroll about this wonderfully quaint town after dinner. The streets are gorgeous, with hanging flower baskets everywhere, and the Bavarian Inn itself is landscaped to match. The setting of the restaurant is between busy Main Street and the Cass River, with a nearby beautiful and functioning covered bridge. Do yourself (and family) a favor and get off of I-75 through Michigan, and take the time to "experience" the Bavarian Inn and surrounding Frankenmuth. We love it!
