Being gluten intolerant, I ordered the roasted chicken meal. The other people in my party were forced to wait on their regular family style chicken dinners while they cooked mine. We waited nearly an hour. During that time, they ran out of corn on the...More

I had a lovely experience in this restaurant. I had homemade chicken noodle soup and it was very good. The restaurant is attractive and very clean and neat.

The wait was brief even at lunch time. the room was very elegant. the portions were very generous. the Chicken was the best I have ever had. The noodles, cabbage salad, and home made breads made the meal. I loved it all.

We recently had a small family dinner at Zehnders to celebrate two birthdays. Our server Haley was outstanding! Bubbly, efficient, knowledgeable, and so chatty with our three year old grandson. The family style chicken dinner was excellent, but Haley made the meal a wonderful experience!

I go to this restaurant on a nearly annual basis but find the Thanksgiving season the best time to go as they offer an excellent buffet on both Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. On Black Friday you miss getting carved turkey but there is still...More

This is a must try for anyone first time to Frankenmuth. Was recommended by colleagues and now we go every summer. Mouth watering lightly breaded chicken and delicious sides. Take your appetite because the portions are generous. Our service was okay - in their defense...More
