Frankenmuth Restaurants: 12 reviews and 11 photos
There are two huge restaurants in Frankenmuth, sitting right across the street from each other, that serve pretty much the same type of food and probably get about 95% of the people visiting Frankemuth to dine at their restaurants. We've tried both Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's and we liked Zehnder's better so that's where we always go. Zehnder's is one of the highest volume restaurants in the US, they can seat up to 1,500 people at one time and claim to serve 1 million people every year!
I didn't realize you could get reservations, we tried when we arrived and they said that reservations were closed but that we could come around 1:00 pm, stand in line and the wait would probably be under 1/2 hour which it was. When we left at 3 pm the line was out the door and down the sidewalk so make reservations or eat earlier or you could be waiting for an hour.
Our service was a little slow but pleasant, I think we were there for about 1 1/2 hours.
Favorite Dish: We ordered what they are famous for, their all you can eat family style fried chicken dinner ($18.95 per person) which comes with noodle soup, cole slaw, cottage cheese, cheese spread and chicken liver pate with garlic toast, bread, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, egg noodles and ice cream. You can add on extra meats such as wiener schnitzel, sausage or sauerbraten for a small fee. You can also order off the menu.
Everything we had was good, I especially liked the apple bread and the egg noodles in butter with baked bread crumbs. The wiener schnitzel was very good and David and my sister in law thought the sauerbraten was excellent.
