Bavarian Inn far exceded my expectations. Their staff was professional and extremely helpful, not only on the wedding day but during the rehearsal the day before. I would recommend anyone in mid-Michigan to check out the Bavarian Inn for their wedding.

We had a bit of a rocky start but after getting assigned a new coordinator, our dream wedding became a reality. If you want the convenience of having your ceremony and reception in one spot with the added bonus of on-site hotel rooms for your out of town guests, there really isn't a better spot. If you have the option, ask for Randy Hegenauer to coordinate your event!

The Lodge was a wonderful/ beautiful location to hold our ceremony and our reception! We told them what we wanted and they made it happen! We had numerous compliments on the food and the staff was very accommodating. My planner answered any questions I asked and she was in constant communication with me throughout all the planning! I wouldn't have changed a thing!

The Bavarian Inn has a wedding coordinator that helped us through the planning and budgeting process, and the day of the wedding, there was an event coordinator there to help make sure everything went smoothly and let us know when everything was ready. The staff was all very friendly, and our guests were enthralled by the atmosphere. The feedback we got was that our wedding was very "fairy tale," and that was due in large part to the Bavarian Inn!

If you are looking for a classic yet offbeat venue, the Bavarian Inn Restaurant is perfect. We booked the Family Crest Room for our wedding, and we're so happy we did! The prices were far less expensive than other places we looked at, and the food was delicious.

But what really brought it over the top for us was the fantastic staff. During planning, the staff was responsive to all our emails and calls, seeming genuinely concerned that we get the wedding we wanted. The wait staff was friendly, professional and impressively efficient. Our guests raved about how quickly they were served and how helpful everyone was.

Our out of town relatives loved that our wedding was in a place with lots to see and do- many of our guests made a weekend out of their trip, so they could see all the stores and walk around the town.

I am so glad we chose Bavarian Inn Restaurant as our reception location!

Everything went so beautifully and smoothly, not a single thing could have been better!

Our events coordinator was always there for us and helped us work out all the details that we had not even thought of. All the decor they provided for the ceremony and buffet tables were beautiful. All the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We felt we were treated with such special attention and care despite the Inn itself having a busy weekend. They even upgraded our reception room without any extra charge due to another client canceling. Little details like providing us with a guest book when we forgot ours, and putting our names in the front sign...just exceeding our expectations to no end. All the other guests were friendly and congratulated us warmly. We even noticed we had some extra spectators peeking through windows at our wedding that made it all the merrier!

We were able to have a wedding that surpassed what we had ever hoped for within a very very reasonable budget. All our guests were deeply impressed and had a wonderful time. I cannot express enough thanks to the staff and lodge for making our wedding such a perfect memory!

The Bavarian Inn Lodge has an outstanding team that made my day perfect. My family and most importantly I did not have to lift a finger the entire weekend. They coordinated the wedding, set up decorations, took down decorations, directed guests and vendors, made sure I had everything I needed at all times. I give a special thanks to Ruth (D.O.C.) and Johanna (Sales) for all the assistance they gave during the planning stages as well as the wedding itself. I highly recommend hosting event here and I will host future events there as well!! You get what you pay for and MORE!

I give my kudos again to Ruth and her team for getting the hall put together and looking perfect in such a short amount of time. In two hours they had that place immaculate and all the decorations were in the right place at the right time! I had nothing to worry about all day! Highly recommended.

For the catering – You really can not go wrong with what you are offered at the Bavarian Inn Lodge as far as food goes. We chose a traditional buffet style dinner. With every buffet you get the famous Frankenmuth Chicken in addition to your other choices. The price was super competitive for the area and beat anything we looked into in the SE Detroit area.

For the Bar Staff – overall the bar staff was great, everyone was enjoying their drinks!! However, I feel that they were making them too strong so people were enjoying themselves too much. The Bavarian Inn Lodge charges you for the bar by how much you consume vs. a per person basis. So in this case I feel like I was not getting the most for my money. We went over budget in this area by the end of the night and I felt that there was no way to avoid it. On the upside the staff did follow directions and did help cut my costs towards the end. I did appreciate that.

The setting is beautiful and was perfect for our wedding. Our banquet coordinator was fantastic, and she made sure that every detail was as we wanted it to be. We were able to take decorations there ahead of time and the staff set them up. This definitely saved me time! The food was delicious and there were many different options to choose from. It was also nice to have the hotel connected as many of our guest were from out of town.

I picked this venue for my reception because my husband and I loved the room-- Austrian Room. There was a giant chandler in the room and looked like a cozy lodge in Germany. The staff was amazing-- I came out to Frankenmuth every few weeks with ideas and they were always there to write down what I wanted there. The date I originally wanted was booked but I was able to book my second choice date. They emailed me my itinerary several weeks before the reception so I could review everything. The day of the wedding, I made one last decision, I rearranged some table locations six hours before the reception. The staff quickly changed the layout and didn't question me or get mad. The only reason I marked down for professionalism is the fact that the guest service person I had arranged everything with wasn't there that day so I was talking to someone who I had never seen before so she didn't know exactly what I was going for. The cost was amazing--- it was cheaper than the banquet hall my husband wanted.

I had my wedding at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Beautiful! Only thing I would change is the addition of another banquet coordinator. My guy didnt do a very good job because you cant be in 3 places at once. running from the ceremony back to the reception hall made the bride worry too much. My guest didnt know how to get into the ceremony and how to get to the reception area. should be more people to guide them.

Bavarian Inn Lodge responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review Julie! I was here for your wedding and I must say the room decor was just beautiful. I also liked your dress with the little bit of camo peeking out. I am very sorry for any stress that you had due to the coordinator not being easily accessible. There was a bit of a quick turnaround that took place that day and Matt sends his apologies to you. I thank you for sharing these comments with us as it helps us to better plan for future events. Congratulations to you and Martin. We wish you the very best!

Over all was thrilled with the wedding but the bar tab was a bit high . But we had a lot of big drinkers at our wedding .. The 2nd keg was tapped at 7 pm which I thought was a bit to early even for our crew but I dont work in a bar .. But the staff was super nice and friendly went out of their way for us and even let us set up a day early <3

The 2nd keg was tapped at 7 pm which I thought was a bit to early even for our crew but I dont work in a bar .. But the staff was super nice and friendly went out of their way for us and even let us set up a day early <3 Read less

Great location and setting for a wedding reception. Convenient for wedding guests to stay right at the site and make a weekend out of the wedding as there are great places to visit nearby. Our wedding was fantastic.

The service at the actual hotel is awful. The cafe by the lobby neglected to even give half my wedding party a menu when they came in late to brunch, they were terrible to my inlaws they screwed up the bill and wouldnt fix it. The wedding went pretty good, the person incharge of setting up was MIA for most of the morning, which meant it was pushing it close when he decided to show up.

I complained about a few things, my in laws rooms were NEVER cleaned, not once. They called and requested the rooms get cleaned and no one came.

She called several times to compalin and they didnt so much as blink an eye they just kept shoving in her face what a great hotel they are.

Overall I'm happy with the experiance, we were given pretty good treatment when we went back to stay there again. They jjust could've done a bit better

The Bavarian Inn Restaurant is a beautiful location for a wedding reception. We were pleased with the location and with the food. However, I was not pleased with some of the customer service we were given. The bill they provided was confusing and when I asked for clarification I felt that the representative was not as friendly as she could have been in explaining the charges. All in all, I would not have changed the location of our wedding reception, but I would have hoped to receive better service from the restaurant.

I recently had my wedding here and anything that could have gone wrong did. The wedding planner I was working with (that the lodge supplied) had the weekend of my wedding off. Mind you I booked my wedding a year in advance. They should have been able to at least introduce me to the one how would be running my wedding that weekend, since the wedding planner knew at our last meeting she wouldn’t be there. They lost several of our guest reservations also charged them more and didn’t deliver cots until around 10:30pm after 2 trips down to the front desk, even though we had called ahead and had a note on file that they would need cots. They lost my reservation and I was the bride they gave me a regular room although I had paid for a suite. The wedding planner they gave us was useless for the wedding and my bridesmaids and groomsmen were clueless i.e. the aisle runner was put down as I was walking up to the aisle, when the DJ was going to announce the bridal party I was directing them since the wedding planner had disappeared. I got yelled at by a lady who works there because the food wasn’t getting served because my maid of honor was trying to locate my antique cake knife which had gone missing. So food was served without her. We had food for guests with dietary needs and it was served cooled and not cooked all the way. I had paid for a cake to be delivered to my father’s table at the wedding and it was undelivered and when I found out several hours later they refused to locate it even though had paid for it. Luckily a bar tender who was at my wedding walked by and finally after she went into the freezer found my cake. We had a late night snack that was paid for and never delivered. To top it all off they broke my antique cake knife the only thing I had received from my grandfather before he passed away a couple months earlier. Although after my husband complained and almost 3 days of waiting the called us and offered us a couple hundred dollars to fix the issues we had after we spent thousands there. I will never recommend this place to anyone especially since after all that the beds were uncomfortable. It was beautiful, but if you plan your wedding here make sure details don’t matter and that you don’t bring antiques.
