Took my husband to this restaurant for his birthday and both of us were terribly disappointed with the chicken soup. Tasted like Mrs. Grass box noodle soup. You would think with all the chicken they make there, they would have the the best homemade chicken soup. This was not homemade at all. When we got home I right away made... More

Thank you for your review Tina. I'm sorry that you did not care for the way we make our noodle soup. I do hope that the rest of your meal was enjoyable and that your server took good care of you. We appreciate your comments, and always try to use them to improve for the future. More

My wife and I went here to celebrate her January birthday. We registered ahead of time on their website in order to get her meal free with the purchase of same value meal. We had the family style chicken which included: cup of chicken noodle soup, a bread tray, coleslaw, squash, a cranberry salad, bean salad, mashed potatoes, gravy, flat... More

It's been awhile since we visited Frankenmuth and the Bavarian Inn Restaurant. We really enjoyed their chicken dinner. The salad choices were so good we both enjoyed the bean salad, but the cranberry apple was my favorite. The chicken was perfect, moist and juicy. Normal sides of noodles, mashed potatoes, gravy and squash completed our meal. The dish of ice... More

The food is always good, no matter what you order. Family style chicken dinner is usually the way we go. It appears pricey, but when you consider all the food you get, it really isn't. We always come home with leftovers, which provides us with another meal later!

Haven't been here in eons but Bavarian Inn has all of the things I remember and they're all still good. First, of course, is the chicken - perfectly fried, perfectly seasoned. The dressing, with its combination of spices, herbs, & nuts was moist and just as good as I remember. The many other side dishes, including potatoes and gravy and... More

The Bavarian Inn was a special treat! Great Service and such an amazing meal! So many choices on the menu. We were there for Lunch and want to go back for Dinner! Located in the heart of downtown Frankenmuth, it was a nice location and we will go back.

I took my customer and his wife here for the family chicken meal. You just cannot beat the food. Skip the bean salad the beans are hard. The stuffing is personal preference, but everything is great.

I guess I should have had the chicken dinner. I mean, it's in their sign out front, but I stopped here for lunch with my son traveling through town and we weren't quite ready for a big meal, plus, when I think Bavarian restaurant, I think sausages not chicken. We ended up both having the pork loin sandwich - which... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your meal. We are known for our Family Style Chicken of course, but we do pride ourselves in offering many different options for our guests, including German and many plated style meals. Those should have the same great quality and taste that we expect our chicken to have. I apologize... More

In laws wanted to take us here. We had heard of the place but never been here before. Checked out recent reviews and they were rather checkered. Well, all was great. Our table was ready as reserved. Service was good, food was excellent. Food was delivered in a timely manner. The facility was really neat and we spent a good... More
