4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went here on a December afternoon about 2:30 (in between lunch & dinner). While the food was very good and the ambience nice for the venue, I find meals that are priced over $20/per person a little high for chicken or pork. Fortunately, we were able to order off the lunch menu which dropped the prices somewhat. Not sure I... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday here and the service was excellent. We were seated very promptly and our waitress was most helpful and attentive. My Bavarian plate was absolutely the best I've had ever. Beef, pork, and schnitzel with perfectly cooked vegetables and a spectrum of salads with three different choices of German breads plus crackers. The meal started with... More

The family style chicken dinners are wonderful. The dining room is maintained in its classic design. The murals on the walls are beautiful art and enhance the dining experience. The service is first rate and the food is freshly prepared using authentic, old world recipes. The family clearly takes pride in the product they offer. It's is a wonderful place... More

I had been looking forward to my fist ever visit to this place but was very disappointed. Had to ask for napkins. Food had been brought out already. No refills on our beverages. Some of out entree items did not come out until we had finished eating. The sausages were barely warm and the sauerkraut was pretty bland. The Cole... More

Service and food outstanding. Beautiful surroundings and price was in line for offerings. One flaw was there is no sign asking guest to check in with hostess if they had a reservation. The line to get non reserved seating was two hours wait and ended far from hostess stand. We assumed at first that was the line to check in.

Read reviews for this restaurant and their Frankenmuth* Chicken so the decision was made that this was the place we were going to have supper during our overnight stay in Frankenmuth before returning home the next day. First let me say that our server (Debbi) provided us with fantastic service and accommodated us in every way. Our 3 pc Chicken... More

I've never had good German food in the US. As a German I would recommend not to go to this restaurant. The menu is OK, simple but a good sample for some famous German dishes. However, it's too expensive for the amount you end up getting. We ordered Kassler and the Frankenmuth Combination. The portion size and tasre were decent... More

We travelled from Canada Sunday Nov.26 looking forward to a chicken dinner at the Bavarian Inn restaurant.. It was extremely busy :parking lot jammed and a long lineup to be seated. WE were seated rather quickly and "menus left" at our table. Our disappointment started after 15 - 20 minutes waiting for a server and becoming somewhat irritable we found... More

Sure, today is probably there busiest day of the year but, they should've been better prepared. After our trip to Bonner's, we went to the Bavarian Inn and they were packed but, we got seated fairly quickly in their big dining room. It took awhile but eventually our waitress came around and took our drink orders. All in all we... More
