    The chicken dinner at Zanders continues to go up in price. It’s now $30 per person which is a little pricey for chicken, mashed potatoes stuffing noodles, and gravy .

    We love going to zenders. The food and service are both great. We tell evert one about the family style meals and about the birthday club. Others are always so amazed. We have been going for our birthday dinners since we were kids. Our parents took us there way back then.

    The coleslaw this time was right on!!! Chicken is always dry tho. The stuffing is always disgusting. You think they could master that by now. Their prices are thru the roof but they let you take the left overs home. Bavarian is much better.

    Rotisserie chicken was overdone and dry, the prime rib was overdone (ordered medium rare and was served well done, juice had very little flavor). Was told they had two new chefs that night. Waitress handled the incident very well.

    We have been dining there for years and our experience has always been excellent. This time we were throughly disappointed and didn't eat hardly anything. First of all the waitress brought all breast and we don't like breast meat. It took herforever to come back to get different pieces. She gave 2 thighs and 2 wings. The chicken was hard and dry. The gravy was cold. Finally when she came back we asked for warm gravy. She brought another one that was cold. Finally way later she asked if everything ok. we told her gravy cold. She said I will go warm it in microwave. We said never mind all our other food was cold by the then.

    I always love going here. Our service was impeccable. He was a nice young man with comedic ways. I only wish I could eat more to get the $31 worth. Though I can bring the rest home, which is nice, I still feel I can’t eat that much for the money. Since we love it, we’ll continue to go when afforded for sure. Thanks for the continued great service.

    I finally got around to ordering the family style chicken meal this time, and although its pricy, it didn’t disappoint. Plus, the Winter Wonderland ambiance here is great. Make a reservation in advance though. There is always a wait.

    Amazing experience! Our first time here but definitely will not be our last. Our server,Sarah, was delightful and explained the menu perfectly. She was friendly and very nice. The food was amazing! Everything was delicious! The amount of food for the money was incredible. It was like Thanksgiving! If you go, and you definitely should, be sure to make a reservation! We had a reservation for 1:30 and were called to our table at 1:29. Right on time. Also, come hungry because you will absolutely be full when you leave.

    The meal is so overpriced for what it is. The chicken breading was salty and that’s all I tasted. Food isn’t very flavorful, you are basically paying for a mediocre meal. For roughly $30/person I’d rather go to a lot of other places!!!
