We met with friends and decided on the family style chicken dinner they famous for. We were not impressed with the quality of the meal or the chicken. Four of us spent a hundred dollars on dinner that probably was put together for less than $5. They type brought all the side dishes out about a half hour before the... More

My kids do not like all of the food of course but they were super thrilled about the idea that more kept coming, plus with all of the options they were full of what they did like! My husband and I loved all of the food options in the family dinner and it was worth the money.

We had the family chicken dinner and a schnitzel. Overall the volume of food is huge! The quality was just so so. I would skip the schnitzel next time, we make better at home. Having been to both Bavarian and Zehnders I prefer the atmosphere and quality of food at Zehnders. However the staff at Bavarian Inn were great. Our... More

They make the finest reuben on earth and it will melt your heart as well as your taste buds! This is one of my favorite places in the US. The rest of their menu is awesome as well. Very authentic food and the atmosphere is fun and relaxing.

Wife and I were seated in a far back corner and promptly forgotten by all staff. We finally got up and left. Nobody noticed. Now seated at a very friendly Slobones BBQ Smokehouse down the road.

I'm so sorry you were not greeting promptly and taken care of. There is no excuse for that. Although you should not have had to, but I do wish you would have talked with a Supervisor or Manager when you were here. We would have acknowledge our mistake and lack of attention immediately and made it right for you. Again... More
