The food is plentiful and delicious. We choose the family style ultimate meat meal. Incredible, we had left overs for two days. Our stay at the Bavarian Inn included a coupon for buy 1 get 1 half off meals for up to 8 people which made this an amazing deal. I would not hesitate to eat here again!

The food here is better than the food at Zehnder's. The staff is more friendly as well. Additionally, their menu had a better selection. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Warm, friendly atmosphere. Always good food and a very pleasant environment. Often there are strolling musicians. Several dining rooms available.

Family style dinner is good, with many side dishes being offered. However, if you are with kids/people that only want the chicken, potatoes and noodles, you are much better off just getting the "plate" of those items. We often take home more than we eat, due to the fact that hardly anyone in our family eats off the salad sides.

Every year we celebrate my brother in laws birthday here. This place can accommodate a party of 9 with ease. The family style meals mean the always hungry teenagers walk away full. The atmosphere is casual, but special, out of the ordinary experience with the staff dresses in Bavarian garb, and an accordion serenades the dining room. Also, be sure... More

Great food and service. We went here for my parents 60th wedding anniversary and had a great time. The family-style chicken dinner was so delicious! Reservations were easy to make.

When in Rome... blah, blah, blah, leads you to eating here. The Experience is worthwhile but the food is only acceptable. Expect to pay about $24.00 per person for Chicken only (meat) or $29.00 to include a variety of other meats. At the very last minute, we chose the all you could eat variety at $29.00. For $5.00 more, it... More

We had Christmas dinner at this restaurant and it was absolutely delicious. When people say their chicken dinners are "famous" - yes, they really are that good!

We tried the largest family style dinner. Great way to try lots of different things. Don't think we would have done it with out a 1/2 second meal coupon. Took left overs home. Nice experience.
