This is a place that you need to come visit at least once a year. We typically go in November to see the Christmas lights and enjoy some good home style cooking. Frankenmuth is the closest think to Germany that you will get in Michigan. Lots of things to do and lots of festivals if we are allowed to do them...

Despite the pandemic, everyone was professional and wearing masks. Social distancing was in place and we felt at ease. Food was great. Wait staff awesome. A great evening.

Considering our Governor was shutting everything down again, I thought the staff was awesome. Not sure I could have been so energetic knowing I was going to lose my job! Praying for everyone in the service industry in Michigan!

We wanted to make sure we had a last good meal before the state closed restaurants down from eating indoors & Zehnders was it. Good Food & Good service.

The service was outstanding, the chicken was excellent, was disappointed in the noodles, they were dry and over cooked. sometimes childhood memories don't live up to todays reality.

Awesome atmosphere with great food. Always a pleasure to visit. There was one host that took a while to bring a high chair for us, had to ask another employee. Other than that, it was a near perfect visit!

A must-visit when in Frankenmuth as the history and interior décor are impressive. Service is excellent but epicurious diners shouldn't expect a jaw-dropping taste experience. Food is well-made for what it is--classic comfort food with over-the-top portions and multiple side dishes.

It is now a tradition to spend the weekend in Frankenmuth to celebrate my mother's birthday.
She enjoys getting her free chicken dinner.

Zehnder's is a place to go for good fried chicken dinners. Meals are good, and the all you can eat will give you plenty of variety.

Great service, food not so much. Way over priced for the quality, the taste you get. We won’t be back. Would rather go to a restaurant and pick a meal with better flavor, depth and love put into it spending $10-$20 a person than spending $28-$38/pp for food that comes out lukewarm, and not good quality. Potatoes taste like a cheap box mix. Noodles were mushy, chicken had bloody areas, and the list goes on. Sad that this place has gone down so much. We were annual visitors but no more.

My sister was out from Washington and she truly loves Christmas. We went to Bronners and I wanted her to have a great experience so I made reservations. The restaurant was buzzing with people and it is beautifully decorated. The food and ambience were wonderful. Our server was Christy (sp?) and she was absolutely wonderful!🤗. Thank you for making our day so rememberable.

The food was great. The service provided by Michael was exceptional, and the value was very good. We were disappointed, as at our last visit in September, that the 'sanitizing' of the eating areas was incomplete and somewhat haphazard. Give the recent COVID-19 surges, it would behoove the staff to be more rigorous in the prep between seatings.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Kim was our waitress. Kim was outgoing, sweet, funny and kind hope she’s our waitress the next time we come.
