Not sure if we caught them on a super busy day but per usual the food was great but service not up to par. Service slow, seemed to forget us at one point which tainted our experience. We'll be back to try them again.

A trip to Frankenmuth is not complete without having lunch or dinner at the Bavarian Inn. There is no lack of food, portions are huge.....almost too big. All food is made German style, not as good as eating it in Germany but pretty close! Make...More

Thank you for sending in a review. I'm sorry you didn't care for the chicken. It isn't your typical greasy fried chicken with heavy thick breading. It is a nice lighter coating and a special was of baking. I'm sorry that it wasn't to your...More

We went here to try their chicken. The meals come with four different cold salads and soft serve ice-cream for desert. Since it's a German restaurant, I had the sausage platter and they were really good. The chicken on the other hand was a bit...More

The burgers are huge & juicy. Best black bean burger I've had in a long time. We ate outside as it was a gorgeous September day. Prices were a bit high, but it's a tourist area. Staff was excellent
