Our waitress was wonderful! The food was great and plentiful! It was also fast survive and the table was ready within 5 minutes of our reservation. It was a birthday celebration and the Perks benefit allowed me to get a free all you can eat meal. Also this is the only place I’ve been to that gave us take out boxes for our food! Thoroughly enjoyed it all!

Honestly my family and I love Zehdners. We are from Grosse Pointe and we drive to Frankenmuth every once in a while and it’s definitely worth it. We come just for the chicken in phyllo which Is amazing. Truly love this place

Chicken was not as good as what it normally is, very bland compared to how it has been in the past. It was spring break though and they were extremely busy so I’m hoping that is why. Hopefully next time I go it will be seasoned well.

We came from out-of-town and were greatly disappointed. Despite recommendations to try the “famous Zhenders”, we wish we hadnt. It was overpriced for the quality of food. Our server scarcely was available and hardy said a word to us. She was a bit abrasive in her mannerisms. I would not recommend this place.

I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. We were seated almost immediately upon arrival. Our waiter was excellent, very pleasant and made our experience very enjoyable. The food was in abundance. Some dishes, we liked very much, but all were tasty. But there was just too much to eat everything. If you are traveling to Frankenmuth, definitely make plans to dine there.

On Easter Day would you expect to see the owner of a well establish restaurant overseeing the day? Well we did see Mr. Zehnder, he was a part of every families Easter Celebration. He wished my parents a Happy 61st Anniversary and my 54th Birthday. It meant a lot to my parents as they have been coming to Zehnders' way before I was born. Thank You for making a memory of our past celebrations and we look forward to continue celebrating as a family at Zehnder!

Waited an hour past my reservation time for a table. It was complete chaos! They claim to have called our party 45min last but we were standing in the same spot for the entire hour and had been to the front multiple times during that hour. It took very long to get our drinks and food. We did the family style dinner for 5. All the food is pre-cooked and shouldn’t take that long. We were also told they ran out of chicken and it would be a while long for more. I am incredibly disappointed and dissatisfied with my experience.

We had made reservations several weeks in advance for our Easter dinner and requested the big room with the buffet. After waiting at least a half hour longer than our reserved time, they take us to the cow path room, or what ever it is called. I said we want to be in the big room and have the buffet. He said you can still order the buffet. I said and what..........try to make our way through all this people standing in line every time?? I don't think so. There were empty tables all over in that room. So they finally seated us and the guy had a bit of an attitude over it. Our waitress was great. The food wasn't that good. The chicken was dried out. The ham was super salty and we had to wait for them to fill a lot of the empty containers. I know they were busy! It cost us over $75 for just two people and it wasn't worth it. We didn't take the soup or the ice cream. We just had ice tea to drink.

Santa and Mrs. Claus love to eat at Zenders. Santa loves his chicken livers and chicken liver pate and Mrs. Claus loves the French onion soup. This year we tried the sausage and sauerkraut. It was amazing. We always get the family dinner so we have lots of variety and leftovers to take back home to the elves at the North Pole.

Chicken was not even close to being called famous. KFC is queen worthy compared to this chicken, fixing tasted like it was cooked in well water, same with the none buttered noodles, just a over all not good not even close to being a ok dinner. I asked a waitress at Tiffany's about both places and she even said she doesn't think it's good at all. Went to main Street tavern n every local said the same thing.
