Bavarian Inn Dining Testimonials
We went to the Easter Bunny Luncheon here and did shopping afterwards and a great time was had by all! They really did a fantastic job with this luncheon and had a very funny and unique magician as part of it. The kid's had a fantastic time. Afterwards we shopped in all of the little shops here and were pleased with the variety throughout! Had a great experience.. Thanks Bavarian Inn Restaurant!!
My wife and I have to visit Bavarian Inn for their famous chicken dinners at least once a year while visiting Michigan. They continue to provide an outstanding meal with service 2nd to none. Thank you.
We had an amazing dinner here tonight. Family style all you can eat chicken with all the fixings. Everything was fresh and delicious. All the staff we encountered were nice and kind. Our waitress, Traci, was outstanding, very courteous, friendly and professional. We received a great value for what we paid. I highly recommend this place, it is especially good for families.
Service is excellent-patient, helpful, and quick. I think that is a Hallmark of this establishment. Always busy, it seems, but still attentive. Portion is always large, but the most enjoyable aspect are the sides available. They allow, with the family style presentation, greater conversation and interaction, while tasting and comparing each side. That is a really great experience that will make your time here more memorable.
We chose the Bavarian Inn because it had something for every member of our family. My oldest enjoyed the water slides, my youngest the putt putt, my husband liked the pretzel making class and I enjoyed the shopping. I can't wait to go back!

Our family loves to visit the Bavarian Inn whenever we visit Michigan. The chicken is always fresh and severed hot. Can't compare this lightly breaded chicken to any fast food chain. Dinners there remind me of a great holiday dinner. Must try if you've never eaten there. Delightful experience.
