My initial sit down was "complete sticker shock". $25 p/p family style dinners. Not really any other options on the menu. But my sister noticed they have "a lunch and kids menu available served all day"! We were able to get so many more choices off the lunch menu! And the kicker was a 2pc chicken dinner was about $10 less (but it was not all you can eat family style). For a family of 4, I saved us about $60 by ordering off the lunch menu!

The restaurant itself was once ranked the tenth busiest in America. but... the real attraction is it's outdoor clock, which is complete with figurines retelling the story of "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" both in English, as well as in the German.

I didn't get what all the hipe was all about!!!! I really didn't think that the Chicken was that great. People were raving about the buttered noodles also. Not a big fan of the noodles either, kind of tasteless! Would not go back for the Chicken, but maybe try something else.

After spending the afternoon perusing the shops on main street, the Bavarian Inn is a great place to stop for a bite to eat or a few drinks.

We had to try to see what all the fuss was about. You sure do get plenty of food.
If you leave hungry it would be your own fault. I did find it to be very plain, boring actually. Not much flavor for my liking. Reminded me of a high school cafeteria. Staff seamed stressed yet is was not overly busy. They dress in German attire for full effect.
