When we first entered the basement restaurant, the staff were rude and ignored us while we waited to give our names. They just didn't want to talk to us and I had to repeat myself 4 times before someone actually looked at us and answered. Luckily, the waitresses inside the restaurant were very nice. The chicken dinner and mash was really nice.

The atmosphere was good, the food was delicious, and the service was great. Nothing more to ask for. My husband and I had a very good time.
If you order the German style dinner, please don't order any appetizers. The dinner itself offers a variety of side dishes, more than one can eat.

I've had the chicken dinner a number of times at the Bavarian Inn. It is certainly an experience with the multiple courses and the decor and staff uniforms. But, after a few times, I'm not sure I really need to go back especially if there is a wait.

If you like chicken on the bone, you'll probably really enjoy it. But, I'm not a huge fan of having to fight with the chicken for very little meat and the side items are nothing spectacular.

So, if you are in Frankenmuth for the first time give it a shot, but I don't think it's really worth coming back to.

My husband and I went to the Bavarian Inn for the first time and were completely blown away by the amount of food and the inexpensive prices! The fried chicken is the best chicken we have had from a restaurant. There are also many different shops in the basement, and even a horse and carriage ride outside which we took part in.

The Bavarian inn restaurant delivered as promised. We visited on thanksgiving which must be their busiest day of the year since the place was still very full and continuing seating at 7:00! Despite being very busy we we're seated quickly and our waiter arrived promptly to take our order. We ordered the chicken/turkey thanksgiving special and we're not disappointed with the quality or quantity of food. We'd visit again!
