went for dinner and made reservations well in advance. When we arrived, it was total chaos- line ups everywhere of people who didn't have reservations mixed up with those that did. Difficult to figure out what to do and not a lot of places to wait while you were waiting to be called for your table. We ended up in... More

We watch the guy go tell the person who was on computer managing the seating. THE guy said it would be 20 minutes before we would be... More

When in Frankenmuth this is the place to dine. The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. We always get the family style chicken. The dinner comes with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and a wide assortment of styles. It's best to make reservations as there are very long lines for walk-ins. They have a nice cafe in the lower...

Great food. The chicken dinner is second to none. The frequent long lines speak to how good the food is.

The buffet consisted of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, stuffing, popovers, green beans, mashed sweet potatoes, sausages & sauerkraut and some plain-looking wide noodles. Desserts included carrot cake, banana cake, a peach cobbler, coconut cream cake, apple cobbler, rice pudding, cupcakes and ice cream. Like many other reviews stated, our fried... More

I'm not sure how many pieces Zehnder's chickens have but where I come from they only have 8 and none have straight edges. I order the 2 piece white chicken lunch and got a breast cut into 2 pieces. This is just like KFC only worst. They charged $14 for this. The chicken tasted like it was deep fried in... More

Zehnder's is a fun experience. Food is good. The wait staff is extremely nice. Can't come to Frankenmuth without coming here. Try it around Christmas time. Totally worth it.

Chicken Schnitzel Franconian was tasteless and dry. Duck was okay. Chicken with feta cheese was big but dry. Service was spotty. Certainly overpriced.
