    Upon approaching the hostess stand the person standing there stated she couldn't check us in for our reservation and it took almost 5 minutes for someone that could. Appears that only one person could check in reservations and direct where to seat people. Kinda seemed pointless to have this girl stand there and not be able to help anyone.

    You don’t necessarily come to the Bavarian Inn for an excellent meal. It’s the experience & nostalgic ambiance. The food is okay. It’s family style with chicken and the sides. The chicken is okay. The buttered noodles and salads are really good. The service was really great. The server, Dylan, was helpful & fun. The welcoming staff was friendly. I personally am not a fan of the accordion player. She’s very loud & kind of intrusive. I can see how others would appreciate that especially if it’s their first time.

    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.
