If I am ever feeling really really hungry, then I look to my wife and say just two words: "Chicken Farm". An hour's drive later we are sitting in this very cozy restaurant in the middle of nowhere, usually packed in among other like-minded diners who have discovered this secret pleasure. The speciality of the house is roasted chicken, prepared... More

We thought this place looked great from other tripadvisor reviews so went down for lunch. It's in the middle of no where, but not really hard to find if you look at the directions on the website. Atmosphere was rustic and nice as expected. The food when it came out was nice, though nothing exceptional. I think the chicken is... More

This is a super cute rustic restaurant in the wood with a super nice and clean hotel. The food is to die for. I had the half of chicken with fries and applesauce and it was juicy and seasoned perfectly. Family had the mixed platter.Even the deserts are great. When you stay in the hotel it is super clean and... More

You have to know this place is there and how to get to it. It is not in any town and you have to take many different back roads to find it. When you do and when you are served you will be thankful you found it. They have a large menu but their main entree is rotisserie chicken that... More

Love this restaurant and the best roasted chicken dinners! The "chicken farm" is a special place. Have stayed overnight when we have traveled from the US several times and are already planning our next visit to the area in 2016. Travelers from overseas or neighboring countries (locals, you already know) would be well advised to plan a stop for dinner,... More

It was not really easy to find this place, it's really off the road. But that's what makes it special also. Inside it's big but very cosy with lots of wood. The chairs are covered with sheepskin and the chickens are turning constantly at the huge spits. Your immediately feel welcome. The menu is simple: roasted chicken right of the... More

My wife and I first ate here 16 years ago during our military tour of duty and returned in 2014 for a family vacation. We drove 100 km from our hotel to enjoy the food and were not disappointed. The owner was very accommodating and ensured we had a great meal. All the employees are friendly and provide exceptional service.... More

We toured the boyhood home of the Grimm Brothers and adjacent museum, as well as Schloss Steinau. Very easy walk around the old town section. Knowing where you could and could not park was challenging for non-German speakers like us but we managed not to get in trouble.

My wife and I first learned about Brathaehnchen Farm from reading about it in Frommers and were very intrigued but most important of all were exceptionally happy that we included this restaurant as part of our journey. The owner and staff were great and couldn't have been more helpful even with a crowded restaurant. Best of all the chicken and... More
