My kids were good about trying a variety of German fare, but at the end of the day they fell in love with the delicious chicken! It's a bit more expensive than we typically go to with the family, but we left feeling full and happy.

I've eaten at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant many times over the years, including family get-togethers and birthday celebrations. The staff is always friendly and attentive, and the food is always good. It's a nice atmosphere - refined without being uncomfortable.

We have been celebrating Thanksgiving at the Bavarian Inn for years with family and friends. You can not beat it for quality, service, convenience and no cooking and/or cleaning up. Just make sure you make reservations at least 3 months in advance to avoid a long wait.

Whenever we are in town, 2-3 times a year, we always visit the restaurant. Excellent food, excellent service and good value. In particular we really love all the side dishes. We will back again in the spring.
