    I grew up in MI but now reside in IL with my husband and children. I visit my family in MI every spring break, and we always plan a visit to Zehnder’s Splash Village. It’s the perfect place for my teenage daughters to play with their younger cousins. There is something for everyone to enjoy! Oh course, Zehnder’s chicken dinner is always the best way to top off our day. Even our picky eaters like to eat at Zehnder’s!

  2. We LOVE Zhenders! Our 1st date was more than 15 years ago & Dixie waited on us. She told us she was happily married & introduced us to her husband. She proceeded to tell us we would get married (which we did) and have children (which we did). We ended up getting married 9 1/2 years ago and have 1 daughter named Jordan. I was unable to have anymore children (due to cancer) but she ALWAYS is up for visiting Drumstick, whom she calls “the chicken man.” Zhenders will forever hold a place in our hearts, as Dixie and her family, as we got to know her & her husband well. We were so saddend to hear of her passing years ago, but we tell the story to our daughter every time we visit; which is about once every other month. My favorite dish is a tie between the chicken schnitzel & the chicken in phyllo. Many more blessing to Zhender’s and their family for making memories for us to enjoy.

    Why I like Zehnders of Frankenmuth is because I decided to take my 3 children during Christmas time since their father (my husband) passed away in a motorcycle accident and our family home burnt down in 2015. I enjoy it because it helps them get into the Christmas spirit plus it also helps take their minds off a horrible year we had. They had such a happy time last year so I have decided to make it a tradition for all of us.

    Our family enjoys the water park and the entire Frankenmuth adventure.There are so many great things about the Bavarian inn it’s hard to talk about all of them. The chicken dinner is awesome. We have a great time anytime we enjoy the small great town.

  5. My family shared so many festive dinners at Frankenmuth my entire life. My husband’s family brought his mother to Zehnders, when she first arrived from Poland. She couldn’t speak a word of English but her eyes had never been wider. She thought she was dreaming, and kept getting tears in her eyes.. and repeating how she loves America! My husband and I also raised our little family to love and appreciate the honor of being able to come to such a heart warming and highly respected place, full of our family’s past memories. We always feel welcomed back.
