Bavarian Inn Restaurant offers unique outdoor entertainment along with food and drink
FRANKENMUTH, Mich. – June 30, 2022 – The Bavarian Inn’s own answer to a German biergarten, the remodeled Fischer Platz, is open for outdoor summer fun in the heart of Frankenmuth with a special entertainment line-up.
The Fischer Platz, which faces Main Street, features live entertainment, draft and bottled beer (including plenty of German varieties), as well as an updated food menu that includes fresh baked pretzels, popcorn, spaetzle and other German favorites.
In addition to Linda Lee daily performances beginning at 2 p.m., the Fischer Platz hosts featured bands on Fridays, and special events on Saturdays. Karaoke is also available every Saturday from 9:30-11 p.m.
The Fischer Platz is open: Monday from 12-6 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday from 12-9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12-11 p.m., and every Sunday from 12-8 p.m. The Fischer Platz is closed on Tuesdays, and closes for the season on Sept. 18.
During its upgrade last year the Fischer Platz was updated with a new outdoor surface (with a portable dance floor), a revamped entertainment schedule that features free performances and a new menu for guests who enjoy the outdoor setting.
The outdoor biergarten is named after the Fischer family who first developed a restaurant in Frankenmuth. Later they sold the restaurant to William “Tiny” Zehnder’s family, who today run the Bavarian Inn Restaurant, the Bavarian Inn Lodge and the River Place shops.
