    Our waiter was excellent and has been in the restaurant business for over 12 years. The only problem was in the same dining room area was a young kid kicking the table all the time we were trying to eat. You think the parents would control their child from constantly banging on the table.

    People think the Bavarian Inn and Zehnders (both famous for their chicken) are twinsies. Not so. Both have their own ambiance, and both have different menu choices - so far as I can tell, everything is delicious. I've never had a bad meal at the Bavarian Inn. The Bavarian Inn is a little more relaxed and comfortable. And the service is impeccable. They are very accommodating when it comes to switching sides (for example - 2 people had the cranberry relish and the coleslaw - not regular sides, but if you ask, you can have them). The downstairs shopping area is not to be missed. I remember when it was small and cozy down there. No more. It's huge!

    Food was great, service was good. I find it crazy that a baby (1year old) was charged for a children’s portion. Most restaurants are 2 and under are free just because they eat 1 teaspoonful of potatoes and that’s it! Ridiculous!

    Our family has been eating at the Bavarian Inn for the past 25+ years and it’s nice to see that many traditions have stayed the same over the years. Tristian was our server and one of the reasons my sister’s birthday celebration was so enjoyable!! She quickly accommodated all of our many requests and was an absolute delight! It’s servers like her that keep us coming back year after year.
