Celebrated my birthday with dinner after the Frankenmuth Woodcarver's Show. It was really good (as usual). Service is always the best and makes for a dining pleasure.

Signature chicken dinners are still a standout, especially with all the sides including chicken noodle soup, chicken pasta salad, cole slaw, cranberry relish, sauerkraut, three bean salad, and bread basket including stollen All delicious!.

Twenty years ago, I brought my daughter to this restaurant when she was nine years old. We planned to return the weekend of the 14th of November, but she could not come with.

The last few times I've been here I was disappointed and wasn't sure that I'd be back. But my family wanted to try it again and I'm glad that we did. We had a great dinning experience.

This restaurant is very popular and was highly recommended to visit. After the entrance, was finally located, then lining up before seating assignment, we were hungry. Our four person table was against the wall, giving us an excellent view of the total room, that we were in. There are additional rooms around the corner. The friendly server came for beverage...
