We had the family style chicken dinner and it was tasty. They really give you a lot to eat: chicken, bread, cheese, veggies you name it, if it a part of a traditional German/Bavarian dinner... You get to try it. After you have dinner they offer you ice cream which is always good. The staff is dressed in old time... More

We went for dinner at the end our day visiting Frankenmuth. We arrived a bit earlier than our reservation time but were able to be seated with only a short wait. Both the hostesses and our server were polite and friendly, and service overall was good. The food, on the other hand, was just average at best, and not worth... More

Took the family there between Christmas and New Years. Waited in line for about 30 minutes. The facility is huge. It is a little confusing at first, but once you get seated you're fine. We ordered the chicken dinner for everyone and it did not disappoint. Very impressed with not only the main course but also the appetizers. I thoroughly... More

The new addition to water park was a lot of fun, the entire family had a blast. We stayed in the new section overlooking the pool, room was clean, nice and had easy check in. We will stay here again!

Had the family style chicken dinner. The food was excellent and the service was fantastic,! This was our 2nd time to the restaurant and it was even better than our 1st visit - if that is possible. The price is not that bad considering the amount of food you get and the quality.

Love the family style chicken dinner. The servers are fast and friendly. The prices are based on the tourist location and atmosphere, not food quality, but it is still good.

Nice service,clean and smelled of home cooking. Children even enjoyed the atmosphere traditional clothing worn in our german hertiage. Only comment made was the chicken had to much seasoning, tasted of salt. Layout of the building was accessible for all needs. Will be back for my girls weekend get away this spring.
