The famous chicken topped the list and the three meat selection provided a taste of Bavarian food for the curious. Service was excellent and the wine deal great if you are not driving. The atmosphere was most pleasant & relaxing

The famous chicken was good and we tried some of the other German dishes too. We went here for lunch and enjoyed it very much.

Nothing beats spending a day or two in Frankenmuth. The food and service at The Bavarian Inn is always awesome. The wait staff are all very personable and great at what they do. Thanks so much to the southern lady from Saginaw!

My apologies. I believe they can prepare something special but no certain. I would give them a call before going to be sure.

Yes, you should call for a reservation. With Dog Bowl in Frankenmuth that is typically a very busy weekend. Thank you, see you soon!
