We decided to have Mother's Day Dinner at Zehnders this year and they did not disappoint! Zehnders offered an amazing buffet featuring Chicken, Ham, Fried Shrimp and a Roast Beef Carving Station along with tables of sides to choose from. While that looked impressive we opted for the Traditional Chicken Dinner. Dinner was just fabulous! Dinner starts with Chicken Noodle... More

We always enjoy going up to Frankenmuth for our chicken dinner and German influence. The place is clean and the food is usually very good. Try to go during the week as the weekends tend to be really busy. The shopping mall nearby has some fun stores for unusual shopping.

It has been years since I had a meal here, I just come for the bakery now. The shops in the basement are too pricey. But I love looking around. Their strudel is AMAZING! Always buy two or three, plus a pie and dinner rolls.

On our way home from up north and haven't been here for years. It can be very crowded but wasn't too outrageous tonight. Food is always good and the quality hasn't diminished in the 40 some years I've been coming with my parents, then kids. Same traditional fare as when I was a kid.

We attended a four day music festival here. Apparently, there are many restaurants in the same building, but our group was in a huge, very beautiful, highly decorated room. Lunches and dinners were served for each concert. The food tasted good, but IMO, very unhealthy -- fried foods, too many starches, few salads, no fruit. Service was family style and... More

Do yourself a favor and get the all you can eat chicken. Flavorful and juicy! Sides are all delicious. I could live on theirs buttered noodles.

Love the family style chicken dinner. The cheese and garlic toast that comes with is so good. Salads are very good. Very attractive dining room and great service.

We had a fantastic stay at the Bararvin Inn and dinner, weather was great. Love the town . We will go back, everyone is friendly. At the desk we got our room cheaper than quoted, because of our age 😊. Fun place for all ages.

Hello, thank you so much for the great review! We are so happy to hear you had such a great time. Zehnder's and Bavarian Inn are actually owned by cousins, and are totally separate businesses. It is most assuredly a friendly rivalry, but a rivalry nonetheless. Thanks again! Shelby Albrecht F&B Manager More
