“Good Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

We went for my wife's B-day & used the free meal offer. It is still about $23/$24 with a pop for 2 of us. Full price would be aroun $40. It is a good meal don't get me wrong, I do like to eat and you get plenty since it is family style. However, it is still just chicken. The server was great, prompt, funny and pleasant. The food was fresh, hot, tasty & never ending. The big seating areas bustling with activity is what I would imagine Germany to be like except I lived almost 2 yrs in Nuremburg & never seen a restaurant remotely similar. Still, very good food & good venue.

“Not what it used to be but Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

When I lived closer to Frankenmuth it was at least an annual trip. I always at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant and looked forward to either their famous, family style chicken or schnitzel. We walked up to the hostess stand and she was talking with another guest sitting to her right. When she was done talking with them she looked in the dining room, checked menus, and totally ignored us. Then she tried to seat us in an area that was so crowded that we could not get the wheelchair that one person in our party was in to the table. She asked other people to get up and move so that she could pack us all in like sardines. The waitress was not warm and welcoming and once we were served our drinks got empty and took some time to get refilled. She seemed more concerned about clearing dishes that still had food in them than making sure we were okay with what we had or if we needed anything.
On a good note the food was tasty! It was not as good as I remember in years gone by, but it was good. The portions were large and no one walked away hungry.
if you have never been before I would recommend trying it because it is an experience. I'm not sure that I will go back.

“Great atmosphere but average food and 21.00 dollars per person for chicken dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

Interesting idea and famous too but 21.00 dollars per person seems a little steep for a chicken dinner that is average at best.The rest of the menu falls right in line with the chicken dinner pricing so with a family of four you will spend 100.00 dollars for one night out eating.There seems to be no way around spending that amount of money here to eat here.Just remember this if you decide to eat here

“Fun place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2011

This Resturant has been a long time family place for long visits. The food is above average and the place is clean and service usually quick. If your looking for a 5 star resetting experience your in the wrong town. This is country fare and comfort food. The bakery is full of fun home style delights, the pumpkin roll is a favorite.

“Oh my God!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

The quality of food, the amount of food, the service, was well worth the half hour wait for our table and food. Recommend reservations. Staff was very friendly and happy! The happiness was infectious!
There was the accordian playing lady going through the tables and all of us were singing along with her as she played.
Our only complaint is that we were too full when we left this restaurant!! What a complaint to have!
Highly recommend dinner here. Average meal is $22.00. I had the two pieces of chicken dinner for $15.99
