I called ahead but they did not take reservations. When we got there, I was told that it was a 4 hour wait unless we wanted to grab a table when someone got up. And that is EXACTLY what they meant. Everyone stood over everyone waiting for someone to look like they were leaving and then bombarded them for their... More

Stop by the Frankenmuth Brewery for dinner rather than the usual Chicken dinner. Service as pleasant and food was as expected. Typical large servings and seating area was relaxing. Family dinning no problem... would go again.

We stopped here for a beer, and a gentleman at the bar told my husband the Pizza was the best, so of course he had to try it. My husband is really picky about his pizza, and I am so picky I won't even eat 90% of what passes for pizza. This pizza was truly amazing. Stone fired pizza with... More

This used to be our favorite place. Family friendly after a day of shopping and Christmas fun. Today we walked in to find that nobody under 21 can be seated on the main floor. Currently we are sitting on the second level in the back room while the first floor remains completely empty. The food is not the great variety... More

A yearly tradition for us to come into town and eat with the family before checking into our hotel... The menu was chopped in half, no tables for families on the lower level (less tables available to wait for). Won't be back. Told 30-45 minutes and waited over an hour...... Better choices for families in frankenmuth. Unfortunately this tradition ended... More

We ate here on Thanksgiving. They had a great Thanksgiving special which we really enjoyed. I *HIGHLY* recommend the Pretzels as an appetizer, which are awesome. They had a huge variety of beers and I recommend the flights, which let you try 4 of their great beers. The service was great, the food was EXCELLENT! Great place to eat!

Even after having been to many, many, many restaurants, I have never been treated more terribly than I was at this establishment. We were told a short wait time, but ended up having to wait for over an hour while watching large groups who came in behind us get seated before we did. Furthermore, the manager was beyond rude and... More

Stopped here for lunch after shopping all morning at Bronner's. It was packed, and we were told it would be a 90 minute wait to be seated. However, the front near the bar is "first come first serve", and we were fortunate to snag a table there fairly quickly. Food was very good, and the server was efficient and had... More

We were really looking forward to eating here and sampling some local brews ... When we arrived, the line up was at least an hour wait for a table and we were very hungry ... Call to make a reservation to avoid disappointment!

We have gone to this restaurant every year and always enjoyed it until this year. When we went for dinner the menu is one page and not a good menu either. When we commented to our waitress she told us that they have a new GM and they pared the menu down to coincide with the beer. Which sounds reasonable... More
