    I always love going here. Our service was impeccable. He was a nice young man with comedic ways. I only wish I could eat more to get the $31 worth. Though I can bring the rest home, which is nice, I still feel I can’t eat that much for the money. Since we love it, we’ll continue to go when afforded for sure. Thanks for the continued great service.

    I finally got around to ordering the family style chicken meal this time, and although its pricy, it didn’t disappoint. Plus, the Winter Wonderland ambiance here is great. Make a reservation in advance though. There is always a wait.

    Amazing experience! Our first time here but definitely will not be our last. Our server,Sarah, was delightful and explained the menu perfectly. She was friendly and very nice. The food was amazing! Everything was delicious! The amount of food for the money was incredible. It was like Thanksgiving! If you go, and you definitely should, be sure to make a reservation! We had a reservation for 1:30 and were called to our table at 1:29. Right on time. Also, come hungry because you will absolutely be full when you leave.

    The meal is so overpriced for what it is. The chicken breading was salty and that’s all I tasted. Food isn’t very flavorful, you are basically paying for a mediocre meal. For roughly $30/person I’d rather go to a lot of other places!!!

    Chicken was dry and overcooked, something we’ve never experienced. It was a snow day and there were very few guests, so maybe it just sat and dried out. We eat there often, so while we’ll be certainly back, it was not what we habe come to expect.

    We really enjoyed our time together at Zhenders. We were seated right away and everything was great throughout our meal. Our server Nicole was phenomenal. She made sure all our wants and needs were attended to and was key to making our dining experience wonderful. The Prime Rib Buffet was excellent and I would strongly recommend to anyone who is heading to Frankenmuth to plan their meal at Zhenders.

    Having a reservation is a must. We were seated right on time and the wait staff was right on us within 5 minutes with our drink orders. We come here at least 3 times a year for our birthdays...NEVER had a bad meal. Looking forward to the Snow festival.

    We were sat in the Cowpath Room. Very quaint and quiet. Our server Nancy was just okay. She had a friend eating with a friend in the booth across from us…we could see and hear their conversations. She bought them plates of chicken. When we asked for more she asked well, what do you want? I said some legs. She bought us 2. I never got my glass of water. Had to ask twice for more coffee! I was a director of guest services and a brand trainer for Starwood. I understand and recognize good customer service!
