I have been going to Zehnders since the late 1970’s. The food, service and restaurant are consistently the best. Everything is fresh and has remained through the years. This is my favourite restaurant in the whole world.

Zehnder's always exceeds my expectations. Food was awesome!! Service was a bit slow, but they were very busy while we were there. Other than that, everything was just perfect. I've been going to Zehnder's for 50....hoping to be there for another 50!!

Waitress said there was a 7 minute wait on our chicken. So we were sitting there it seemed like quite a while before our dinners were served. Other then that, everything was fine.

We had the all you can eat fried chicken which wasn't very good. (dry) The food didn't flow during dinner and we had to wait long periods between courses. They weren't busy at all and I dont understand why they were so slow.

Delicious food. Great value. Great service. My only complaint is the restaurant was maybe 10% full yet we were seated at a very small table in close proximity to other guests (by that I mean I couldn't get up and pull my chair our without hitting another guest).

Lots of Food. The side are amazing. Cottage cheese, coleslaw, soup and cranberry relish. Almost don’t need the mains! Rotisserie chicken was great and pork schnitzel very tasty but a bit salty. You won’t get a bad meal at Zehnders and the servers are very attentive and quick. Good selection of craft beers now also. It’s not fine dining but it’s great for families and larger groups and gets pretty close with the variety they have.

We had a great experience at Zehnder’s. We were staying at their hotel and had dinner as part of our package. They treated my toddler with such care and made it a lovely dinner for all. Food was delicious! Can’t wait to go back.

The food was great as usual. But our waitress was HORRIBLE. I have never had terrible service at zehnders until this visit. If I ever go back I will for sure make sure that I speak to a manager if we have the service we had this time.

We were there for my mom's 91st birthday. She got her free dinner and I got the half hot chicken sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. It was the best. We will be back in September for my birthday. See you again then.

Everything was excellent especially our waitress. The band playing in the lobby made it very difficult to hear - perhaps they could play somewhere far away from where people are dining and trying to talk. Otherwise, everything was amazing.

We expected the world famous chicken to be good. However, I guess that’s why it’s not called worlds best chicken. Very dry, the batter was also bland and had a gritty texture. Coleslaw was very good and besides the mashed potatoes and gravy all we ate. Service was slower but not terrible. Definitely not worth the price.

We absolutely love Zehnder's. We tell everyone we know that if they are looking for a nice vacation place to go to Frankenmuth and eat at Zehnder's. I have been enjoying their outstanding food and hospitality for over 50 years and look forward to many more. God Bless and keep up the great service.

My family has been going to Zehnders for years food and serve are always great but I do recommend a reservation because without one the wait can be long. The Bakery also has excellent bread and baked goods. A lot of the items served with dinner like bread, jam, pate, and cheese dip can be purchased down stairs in the bakery.

We've visit here in November every year and always get the buffet. The food is great! We went this past weekend (in March) and we were disappointed to find that they do not always have the buffet in their slower months. We were also disappointed to find out that the birthday dinner only covers the family style chicken dinner (or buffet with a small up charge) and it does not cover any other dinner options.

Had heard about the famous Zehnder’s for a long time, and since we were in the area thought we’d try it. It was, without a doubt the WORST restaurant meal we’d ever had. Everything tasted like it’d been cooked last week, and there was no flavor to anything. If your only criteria for restaurant food is quantity, try Zehnder’s, as there was
plenty of food. If you want a flavorful, well prepared meal, look elsewhere.
