    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.

    There was a hair on my daughters steak. She did not want to make a fuss and ruin the day. She cut that piece off the steak and proceeded to eat the rest. There was not an option for just a ham dinner.

    As always, the Bavarian Inn never fails. They subtly change some aspects of the meal without changing the favorites just to make sure it’s a little different. The chicken, noodles, beans, ice cream at the end, it’s all just perfect. Wouldn’t change a thing 👌

    The server was very friendly and was able to answer all my questions about the lunch and dinner menu; she was patient and efficient throughout our service. Our chicken noodle soup was not hot. If I return in the future, I will make sure I ask for the soup to be extra hot. The Caprese dinner was over cooked/dry. l told the waitress after she asked me how my dinner was, she did not offer to rectify the dry chicken. The broiled fish dinner with baked potato was prepared perfectly and was enjoyable. It would have been nice if a manager stopped by the table to see how our experience was.

    Food was great as usual, but the service was not so good. We were seated in the middle of 2 large birthday parties which made the dining experience pretty lousy. Our waitress had some issues. We had to ask for straws twice, our waitress never asked us for refills on our first course food as they did in the past, and it took a long time to get refills on our drinks.

    This could have been a nice experience if our reservation had meant anything. However, when we showed up, they told us that they were busy and were just clearing the table and would be seating us shortly. 40 minutes later, we had to remind them we were still there and clearly they had forgotten about us. By then, my 2 and 5 year old were tired, miserable and ravenous. We were seated promptly when they realized their mistake and the food was nice, but really excessive for the age of our children. We wanted the chicken dinner and were told we had to pay the children’s rate and could not share with them so we did. It was clearly busy but I got no milk with my tea and had to make do with my saucer and spoon as no plates or cutlery were provided. We did not have time to enjoy our food anyway because we were basically served dinner at bedtime so we ended up taking the whole ridiculous banquet home because our kids were over it. Overall, not an experience I would care to repeat.

    We were seated as per our reservation on time and greeted by the waitress. Food was excellent as well as our waitress. Was a 2 day getaway which was badly needed and this dinner just made our weekend memorable. Will definitely be going back.

    We come every year for our Anniversary, and enjoy a wonderful chicken dinner. We love it here! The food is always good, the staff is great, and it is a nice experience. Big bowls of the soup are the way to go!
