Agreat place for the once a year birthday dinner with their big discount and free desert. Very pricy for regular dining. Happy hour in the bar is good bier and meeting locals.

My family loves Metzgers. The food is delicious and authentically prepared. The portions are generous but not overly so. Service is excellent every time. Highly recommended restaurant.

I loved this place. I visited during a weeknight and had dinner at the bar. The staff was friendly, the surroundings were 100% German just like all of their beers on draft. The food choices were great! There were so many choices that I had a hard time deciding just what I wanted. The menu is simply fantastic. It's hard... More

Metzgers is a charming German-American restaurant located at the end of a strip mall off of I-94. The food is authentic, fresh and good, the prices a little high. Service was pleasant, but today, a bit slow, despite not being busy. We like the Reuben sandwiches and Spatzen, We went early enough today to see in the sunshine that the... More

Every dish is fresh, no canned vegetables here! Great prime rib, sauerbraten, schnitzel, but also good burgers and sausage if you're not into German food. Potato pancakes, all potato dishes delicious. Desserts- strudel, black forest cake are good. Lots of German beer, too.

Spending Christmas in A2 visiting family is never a complete trip without a meal at Metzgers. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but we've never been disappointed by our meals, portion size, or service. This time Chip tried a special of Hausenfeffer (rabbit..yikes). I had the saurbraten, Mom the rouladen, Wayne the wurst platter. Chip raved about his dish, and... More

Very nice authentic German food. Love all the cuckoo clocks on the wall (no worries they don't go off) Everything was homemade and you get too try the sides - you have to try the red cabbage. The red Reuben was filling for lunch. We also took the Strudel home to go - mmmm!!!

Last Saturday evening I went to Metzgers to get cheered up after a downer football game. When I arrived the place was already packed. The hostess found me a seat in the bar. I've had mixed experiences with bar seating however, the service was excellent. I had the Zweibelrostbraten mit Kartoffel Puffer und apfelsatz accompanied by a beet salad, dark... More

I ate here two months ago and got severe food poisoning. My food tasted off, I had the whitefish with collard greens, and after just a few bites I felt a wave of nausea and had to hurry to the restroom to be violently ill. Where is a health inspector when you need one? I can't believe all of these... More
