Hi, all,

The family and I are looking at our annual trip to MI and this time are looking to take in Frankenmuth. Has anyone been there and if so do you know about places we can eat? Guess that cheese/fudge shop is out, ha ha... but what about Zehnder's? Captain Hook's ? (now, doesn't that place sound 6 your old boy friendly?)... Any input would be greatly appreciated!

We have gone to Frankenmuth on our drive up to Cross Village the last two years. We've only spent a few hours there, so unfortunetly I don't know much about the attractions there. We had lunch at Bavarian Inn Lodge and they were accomadating. They did have a bread with nuts in it, that the waitress whipped off the table when we asked about peanuts. Other that, we only went to Bronner's- to my husband's dismay. He hates that place, but the kids love it as we've seen Santa on his summer vacation there!

We have been to Zhenders and Bavarian Inn since diagnosis. I called the chef and he seemed pretty well informed (does a gluten free menu as well). At the time our son was allergic to eggs, so the fried chicken was out. He had a special grilled chicken with sides. The stolen has nuts and the white bread is iced on the same slicer. The stuffing is made from the left over bread... but I think those were the only things with a nut issue. The ice cream and sherbet had egg (although DS had eaten it in the past without any problem).
We always eat at those places, so I don't know about others... but I have found "touristy" place to be better than most, because they have typically seen so many families.
Have fun... I am now craving over priced chicken!
