Hospitality abounds with traditional family style chicken dinners and tantalizing breads and pastries in the world-famous Zehnder's of Frankenmuth restaurant.

Dinners range from $15.25 to $21.50, with children's portions and special event menus available. Our luncheon menu is available Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm. Zehnder's is open seven days a week. (For full hours of operation, see below). We are only closed on Christmas Eve, and for our annual employee Christmas party in early January.

Zehnder's restaurant is happy to tailor any meal to meet your dietary needs. Our chefs are well trained in special diet preparation and can provide dining options for gluten free, Celiac Disease, allergies/food sensitivities and most any other kind of special request.
We know that taste preferences vary from guest to guest, so rather than having limited option special menus we prefer to work with each guest based on their likes and dislikes. Many of our regular menu choices can be easily modified to conform to your special requests. After all, we make everything "from scratch" so altering a particular dish to meet your requirements is quite simple. Just let your server know what your preferences are and our chefs will gladly help you with menu options.
If you have any questions please feel free to email Executive Chef John Zehnder at john.zehnder(at)
