“Mouth watering........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The atmosphere is awesome. The people are very friendly and the food is awesome as well. Whether you get the German dinner or the chicken dinner or even just a plate.......you can't go wrong with eating here. I love the scenes painted on the walls, makes you think you are in a story book. Lovely! The price might be a little high, but you definately get alot of food...and you definately won't leave feeling hungry. Wow!!

“A Lot Of Really Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were in Frankenmuth for just one night and my wife wanted German food and the hotel had recommended this place and said you needed to try it's "World Famous Fried Chicken". So we went down and gave it a try. It was very clean and really had a German feel to it. My wife ordered a German sampler plate and I had to try the chicken. Then they started brining out the bowls... You can eat family style here (all you can eat) or just an plate. We had just ordered a plate and all the stuff that came with it was wonderful. She really enjoyed her sampler plate and the chicken was good, but not world famous. Being from the south, we know really good fried chicken. We left very full and happy. While the food is really good, it is not cheap. Our meal with tip was just under $50 for two people. Would I go again, most likely, but I would get something other than the chicken.

“Several German Themed Dining Rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Whether you are there for a full German meal, or a Bavarian Ham Sandwich on a Pretzel Roll (which, by the way, was delicious), there are many choices here. We loved sitting in the bright and cheery dining room overlooking the street and the giant floral chicken across the road. There was a strolling accordion player who did a great job playing requests, all the time staying out of the way of the waitresses. We liked it so much we ate there a couple of times. There were plenty of American choices such as sandwiches or salads if German food is not your cup of tea.
