If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I'm a fan of Frankenmuth—I try to go at least once a year, and I think last year I went two or three times, for my free birthday chicken dinner and for its Beer Fest in May. I recently went for Snowfest at the end of January this year, too.

One of the places I stop by is the Bavarian Inn, which has both a restaurant and lodge. I have never actually stayed at the lodge but I'm looking forward to it later this year.

If you're a fan of fried chicken, you will definitely want to stop by the restaurant, which features all-you-can-eat chicken dinner and sides. If you stop by the building's basement, too, there are also some shops; I bought a super cute magnet there a few years ago and a few other things, and of course they sell fudge (another Frankenmuth thing) and other goodies.

About the Bavarian Inn Restaurant:
Celebrating over 130 years of service, the Bavarian Inn Restaurant has become a Michigan landmark. Generations of diners, lodgers and tourists from around the globe have discovered true Bavarian hospitality thanks to Dorothy and her late husband William "Tiny" Zehnder. Guests experience the old-world European charm of the Bavarian Inn—whether it's the famous chicken dinners, fresh baked goods or Michigan's greatest selection of German beer. Bavarian Inn also prides itself on being one of the top consumers of Pure Michigan agricultural products, striving to serve more Michigan-grown and produced foods and Michigan-produced beverages than any other restaurant. Authentic German architecture, a variety of shops and other fun activities make a trip to Frankenmuth incomplete without a visit to the Bavarian Inn.

I'll be staying at the Lodge for the first time later this year and am super excited about it! I love water slides and indoor waterparks, too. Check back later in the year for my review.

Have you ever been to Frankenmuth and/or the Bavarian Inn?
