We had tried to eat here in past visits but it was always too busy. This time, on a crappy-weather Tuesday, we went in around 3 & got seats immediately. The portions were huge & tasty, and the service was great. Hubby had the perch dinner (delicious) & it came with tons of sides, served in a way that our... More

I ate here for the 1st time and frankly was not impressed. The food was just average, menu was limited. Service was poor. I was seated and waited 10 minutes before my server came to take my drink order. I really think I will not return anytime soon.

I started following Zehnder's on Facebook about 5 years ago after something popped up in my newsfeed about maple bacon doughnuts. Yum! Living in NC and not having any family in MI, I had not thought I'd ever actually visit, but enjoyed the postings of pottery, waterpark, bakery items and such. Then, on a lark, my husband and I decided... More

This place is a gem! So tasty, so amazing! The food is the best, and we had a chance to also sample the Thanksgiving buffet, which is OFF THE CHARTS!

Stopped at Zehnder's for a business dinner. I had the all you could eat chicken dinner, my associate had the Schnitzel. All dinners come with a bunch of appetizers and are served family style. They have been doing chicken for many years and they do it right. All you could eat is hard to do. There are so many side... More

I have enjoyed going to Zehnder's for many years. I like the variety of food - from the coleslaw, bread & jam, noodles, to the chicken. The wait staff is very professional in taking care of customers. It's a wonderful place to dine before walking around town to visit the shops!!
