Welcome to
Zehnder’s Restaurant

We have a well-known history of hospitality, dating back more than 160 years ago. In 1928, the Zehnder family purchased the Exchange Hotel and continues the tradition of good taste and outstanding customer service which thrives to this very day.

Our restaurant has seen millions of guests from all over the world! Although much has changed through the decades, each generation has continued its commitment to “Every Guest Leaves Satisfied”.

We are confident that you’ll enjoy your meal and the experience. We are committed to making memories, one family at a time.
