Amazing as always! I’ve been eating at Zehnder’s from a young age every time I visit Frankenmuth. I had the pleasure of sharing the experience with my fiancé who had never been to Frankenmuth before and he loved it.

My dinner experience was mostly good. We sat in the bar and I would have much preferred to sit in one of the dining rooms but it was still a nice room. The food was good but could have been much warmer. The server was the best part of the experience!!! He had a great personality & was very helpful with all of our needs! Overall I would visit again. It was extremely busy that evening but I think everything was handled pretty well.

I was very impressed with how they accommodated my daughters dietary restrictions really well and even allowed me to bring food with us. Our server also offered a good substitute for a replacement to her dessert.

We were really looking forward to taking family to Zehnders. We had been there before and had a great experience. The service was incredibly slow. They brought the wrong food items to one of our guests and we waited 20 minutes for the correct entree. One of the guests asked for more coleslaw and that never came. Everything took an incredibly long time. Very disappointed.

Zehnder’s is a great place to dine for two! Even on a busy Friday night they sat us very quickly. The food was delicious and service was excellent! We will definitely be returning.

During this time of covid-19 restrictions, I would recommend making a reservation. We were seated on the time of our reservation without having to wait amongst other people. Food and service was a 5 star.

The server Julie or Julia complained about everything from the time she came to the table until left. She even told me that she never thought she would be doing this type of work. She only been here a year. She was tired of going up and down the stairs. She wasn't pleasant at all. She put her negative energy on everyone that she served. I didn't hear anything positive come out of her mouth. I hop it was that she was just having a bad day and this isn't the norm for her. I observed the other servers interacting with the guest that they had. But not mine she was dry. The food was just okay not what I had 10 years ago. No flavor at all. It's like they changed the recipe from what I remember. I won't return here again. I would have done better stopping at KFC it would have been cheaper and more flavorful.

Waiter was mostly AWOL. Can’t get fried chicken unless you order the family AYCE option. Definitely not worth $30 a person. Never going back.

I was extremely uncomfortable in your restaurant. There was little to no social distancing in place, we were seated and after our first course was served a table of 4 was sat about 3 feet from our table. The 4 guests at that table seemed uncomfortable as well, but didn't ask to be sat at another table. I went to your host stand and asked to be moved, the gentleman was kind enough to tell me I could move our party to another table.
I know the regulations are strict right now and it's difficult to manage with all these restrictions in place, but clearly you feel as though they do not apply to your location.
I am a General Manager of a restaurant and I know the difficulty of this, but it's a shame that you don't follow protocol. I can only imagine the practices in place in your closed kitchen, are your cook's wearing masks and gloves? If you don't care about social distancing in the dining room, what are your employees exposed to?

We were seated in the "Old Dining Room". Seating arrangement was not following the "social distancing" rule of 6 feet apart. I did not see anyone properly disinfect the seats and condiments on the tables after the guests vacated. Very disappointing. I expected proper protocol from Zehnders.
The price of the dinners has increased considerably. This may be the last time for my husband and I to dine at Zehnders. Sorry to say that, as it has been a family tradition.

Our meal was outstanding! There’s was SO much to eat, we couldn’t finish it all. Sadly, we are from out of state, and couldn’t take the leftovers. I highly recommend dining here! The staff was amazing, kind and very professional. Make Zehnder’s a MUST on your next visit to Frankenmuth!
