Good food. Large portions. Ice cream at end of family dinner was my favorite part. Great chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy. It never changes but a must when you are in Frankenmuth.

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!
