First time we have been there. I took my wife on a date night. We sat outside. I have eaten at restaurants all across America and Europe and I rank this food in my top 5. I highly recommend this restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise. The staff is very friendly and attentive but not overbearing. Can't wait to go back when mask aren't required.

Had the Wiener schnitzel and pork codon blu both we’re served steaming hot and so flavorful and delicious! You could hear them pounding the meat in the kitchen, it was so tender. Everything was fresh and cooked to order. The desserts were excellent as well had the meringue and apple strudel, loved them both! Highly recommend!!!

We had travelled from central Ohio up to the UP for a family get together. We stopped in Frankenmuth on the way up and had dinner at the restaurant Thursday night.

The service and cuisine was so good and spending time with the staff (Destiny/Maddie) and then the owners (Barbara and Elia) so enjoyable, that we decided to stay in Frankenmuth on Sunday night and eat again at The Station 100 on our way home.

Thank you for two great memories!

Tschuss!

The food here was very delicious. Portion size was very big - but we all finished everything on our plates. If not for the loud and pretentious group that we could hear because the place was so quiet, it would have been a perfect evening.

the only bad was the wait time. But, the wait time was because everything was made from scratch. They grow most of their food and if not it gets delivered daily.. the good was amazing. Fresh tasting. Wait staff was kind and attentive. I would go back weekly if I could and lived closer. This place is a must

We found this amazing restarant, only walking distance from our hotel. The menue has both German and Italian influence. The wine list extensive. Priced very reasonably. We highly recommend. We will definately return our next time in town.

Just as it said it was on their web site. It suited us just fine for our 47th Ann. I do think that more train station atmosphere is needed. My understanding is the owner wants to modernize and I think that would be a huge mistake. It is advertised as a train station and should reflect that more and keep that theme year round.
We come back there next time in Frankenmuth.

Excellent, varied European menu. Our dishes were prepared and presented without a flaw. We enjoyed the breaded mushrooms, lasagna (meat sauce), and pork schnitzel. All the dishes were extremely tasty! We will definitely visit again, but next time will leave room for dessert!

The food was unique, the lasagna was made with crepes instead of noodles. They were welcoming and patient and the service was great. Try the salad because the dressing is AMAZING! They sell the bottle for $9 and it's worth every penny!!! I had a curry rice dish with pineapple and bananas and it was phenomenal! So unique! The floor was individually laid hand tiles... someone had a LOT of patience! I'd go back in a heartbeat!!

It is away from the main drag and all of the crowds. You can walk into town if you want. No problem getting a parking spot. Food is great. Service was great. Awesome desserts. If you want chicken, go somewhere else. If you want Wiener Schnitzel, this is the place! We will be coming here instead of the mayhem that comes with Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's.

This is our second visit to the Old Christmas Station and both times we have truly enjoyed the meal and service. This is a hidden gem in Frankenmuth, even as a past resident from the area I was not aware they were here. Everyone seems to migrate to Zehnders or the Bavarian Inn but you wont be disappointed with The Old Christmas Station for their offering. Their wine selection is very good, and all of us enjoyed our meals. Located at the top of the Hill, even their signage makes it a bit difficult to locate. If you go, I believe you will be pleased.

I was disappointed that the interior had changed. The charm I enjoyed before was the antique items on the wall, the openness of the building, being able to look on main st. Seeing the kitchen from the front of the building was not the best..

We chose this restaurant for our annual girlfriend Christmas lunch. We made the drive from Livonia and it was well worth the trip. The restaurant and the menu are unique and a pleasant and relaxing change from the newer "trendy" places. It had old world charm and service at a relaxed pace that we enjoyed. I recommend to skip the chicken dinner and give The Old Christmas Station a try next time you are in Frankenmuth.

Definitely a memorable dining experience! We started out with a slight hiccup, as their computer apparently assigns parties of three to a tiny table, and there were no others available, but the staff was extremely kind and gracious. We started with a salad, and immediately demanded to know what the outstanding dressing they had used was. It’s made in house and, to my delight, was available for purchase. We had the Austrian Goulash and the Lamb Chops; both were absolutely delicious, followed by a wonderful apple strudel, and a lighter-than-air Black Forest cake. A very memorable meal for our family, and we would love to return on our next trip to Frankenmuth.

Well this place was fantastically beautiful. They were slow on a Black Friday but we made a reservation anyway. Our waitress was amazing! However, we waited over an hour for our adult main entree and that is not acceptable. Our children's food came out along with our salads and soup and that was just fine. Our sons grilled cheese was ice cold but he got his alternate sandwich and ate it before we STILL were waiting on our food. After waiting an hour And 15 minutes we decided to leave. Our food was THEN ready and they asked us if we wanted a to go box. Really? This is NOT THE PLACE TO GO with small children nor is this the place to go if you are hungry and want your food in a timely manner.
