Zehnder's of Frankenmuth
We enjoyed the delicious food, the surroundings and it being so nice and quiet! We will go to Zehnder's again!
My mom and I usually go to Zehnders about every two or three months, usually the service and food are wonderful. We were having dinner this past Sunday, I usually order the chicken for my mom and I ordered your new york steak. It has always been very good, but this past dinner it was very disappointing, I ordered my steak medium, but it came out rare, I would have sent it back but the server brought both our dinners out at the same time. I know that doesn't sound difficult but I have to help my mom eat and to wait for the steak to be cook more or a new one given to me, it just makes our dining experience difficult. The server was very nice and took the steak off the bill but I left the table hungry and disappointed. We will eat at you restaurant again, but I was truly disappointed.
Celebrating my wife’s birthday
If you are looking for fruit and/or vegetables, or even semi-healthy food, this is not the place to go. I ordered the half rotisserie chicken dinner, which appeared to be the healthiest option on the menu. The vegetables it did come with (broccoli and some things that I think were meant to be carrots...) were over-cooked and had no flavour even though they appeared to be coated in a brown sauce. The chicken I received was two deep-fried thighs (not rotisserie?), which were incredibly dry and had absolutely no flavour. The sides were decent, though not healthy in the slightest. The service was good but did not make up for the poor quality of food.
We have been going to Frankenmuth since we were teenagers--quite a long time ago. I love the whole experience. This time we have such a great server-his name was Andrew. He was attentive without hovering, very friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a great time.
Zehnder’s is an iconic restaurant in Frankenmuth. The family style chicken is always delicious, and they do not skimp on portions, or getting refills when asked. We always look forward to our annual trip.
Really good! My dad and I enjoy it every Christmas and birthdays. It is really yummy!
Everything was great except we were sat at a table right next to a couple. The lady had a staring problem and we were made uncomfortable throughout the entire dinner. I finally had to mimic what she was doing in order to get her to stop. Literally ruined everything. Next time I will request a booth. Maybe if the tables were parallel to each other instead of lined up, it’d be better.
Our waitress, Dakota, was fantastic. She was easy to talk to and she was attentive without being at the table every second.
Disappointed that we were not offered a lunch menu that would have significantly been cheaper than the very high priced family meal. My wife and 12 year old daughter did not eat anywhere close to $25 worth of food. If we were offered a lunch menu 3 out of 4 of us would have went with that option. Feeling very manipulated into ordering off the very expensive dinner menu when a lunch menu was not even mentioned to us at 12:00PM. Learned about it when the table next to us asked for a lunch menu. Of course our expensive meal had already been delivered to the table.
The best service we love the waitress Rebecca 100%% recommend she makes the experience so great and she’s so humble. I will be requesting her next time we’re there
Been here many times but this time hot dishes we not hot and chicken and veal were dry and over cooked.
Our waiter was so attentive. That was greatly appreciated.
been there many times always excellent. I was a little disappointed when I was asked to dine in the bar area when the dining room was almost empty. there were six of us.
Good place to share an all you can eat meal with friends and family. The servers are pleasant ant efficient. A yearly visit is a nice tradition.
service was great and food was good,checking in was easy and wait was short
It is very expensive when you have children. I wish the age group would be til atleast 13. 4-8, 9-13, and 14-16. I have all girls and they barely eat 2 pieces of chicken, so to pay 23.95 for family style (because they want noodles) is alot of money.
I was so happy to be able to use Open Table to get a day of reservation! We were seated very quickly. We ordered from the gluten free menu and while that severely limits the options, the rotisserie chicken we got was delicious! Service was a bit slow, but server was polite.
I will say you get a lot of food but for the price the quality was not worth it. It took forever for us to get our food. Our waitress was OUTSTANDING she almost made up for all the bad qualities. I think if you are coming to Frankenmuth it’s good to try it once but if we return we will eat at some of the other local eateries.
Everything was good at Zehnder's except for the wait. We had 5:45 reservations and did not get seated until after 6:00. Then, the server took another 5-10 minutes to finally get to our table. Thus, while the food was good, the delay detracted from the evening.
Always good food and good service, our family always enjoys zehnders for any occasion.
I had heard about Zehnder's for years -- it was a treat to finally try it out. I'm so glad we made reservations because even at 4 p.m. on a Saturday, it was packed! Despite being very busy, our waitress was efficient and quite calm considering how many demands she had on her. It was a great meal for my 3 hungry boys who enjoyed the family style eating!
Love going to eat here. The food is always good and the food is great. I also love looking at all the shops and stores in the area.
We had an excellent dinner. Everything was wonderfully prepared and served. we are seated about 5 minutes early. Open table
reservation was perfect.
Two members of our party are vegetarians, and one with heart condition. There is almost nothing, including the vegetarian items that are heart healthy, and I mean nothing. Not only that, the vegetarian items did not include the appetizers, according to the server, even though the menu says they are included with all entrees. I fully realize that a chicken restaurant is not the first choice for vegetarians, but we are in the 21st century and plant based diets are the necessary reality. Times are changing and restaurants will change at some point, I hope
It was a great experience, my second time there I brought a guess, he really enjoyed.
Absolutely love Zehnder’s! Always good good with a variety of sides.
Love going to Zehnders when visiting Frankemuth,Mi. Amazing food & service every time.
It was a great time I shared with my family. The food was super. I always have great time there; they have usually great staff. This time, on the other hand, I might have had the worst server I’ve ever had. He had a poor attitude, unfriendly approach, and poor conduct. The server’s name was Ryan.
Our family has been coming here for many years. It is a special treat for our family and friends to eat here. I love the ambiance. It makes us feel comfortable and relaxed. I rated the service fair because our waiter didn’t ever check for the holiday drink menu like I had asked him about. There was a special holiday drink menu last year, so I don’t know what happened. I enjoyed the food so much that I really didn’t miss it. However, overall the experience was really nice. After dinner, I enjoy musing around the basement shops and the ones located around the street outdoors. The horse drawn carriages are special to see as well. I plan to come back again.
The food was good. The side dishes and condiments were excellent. The server was very prompt and courteous.
Amazing food and service as always..we drive from canada and we recommend u guys often to other canadians..we always leave there stuffed and lazy 😁
great chicken, hubbard squash, real potatoes, and cole slaw!!!!
We always visit Zehnder's during the holiday season and love it. Their unlimited family chicken dinner is the best.
Haven't been to Frankenmuth or Zehnder's in a few years. Received an email for my free Birthday Dinner and decided this would be a great place to celebrate. My birthday is Dec. 24th and every thing is so rushed. So I decided to go to Frankenmuth with my significant other and my children with their significant others and chose Sunday, Dec. 30th. Some of us left early to stop at antique stores on the way. And, some of us stayed after to visit the shops. The drive to and from was relaxing, not a lot of traffic. We checked in about 15 minutes early for our 3pm reservation and were seated almost immediately. Our server, John, was wonderful. I accidently left my wallet at home with my Zehnder's card in it, but John let me show a credit card for ID and honored by free dinner. The meal was fabulous and met all of our expectations. The food and service are always top notch and we have to make a point of visiting more than once a year.
our waitress was very efficient and friendly. I Would like to have her every time!
Ordered all you can eat chicken for two, was promptly served. Server was very amiable and a joy to speak with. She was also very efficient friendly. Always had a smile. hope that the next time we are at your restaurant we have a server as enjoyable as her.
The servers at Zehnder’s are always friendly! I love coming here for the family style dinner, especially during the Christmas season. The restaurant is decorated so festively, it’s hard not to be in the Christmas spirit when you’re here!
We were celebrating our birthdays and if you register thirty days before your birthday, it’s free! We had great meals and Stephanie provided courteous service. We enjoyed a drink together and at the end, we received coupons for free ornaments at Bronners. There’s a bakery downstairs and we picked up some beautiful loaves of unique breads.
I have been going to Frankenmuth for at least 60 years. My parents & grandparents always had celebrations there. Zehnders and/or Bavarian Inn are the best restaurants in MI. Many good memories and wonderful food. Has not changed at all. Wonderful place.
