Great atmosphere and delicious German

Every once and a while you need to fill a German craving. In the Southern Michigan/Northern Ohio area this is the place. Food is delicious and plentiful. Plenty of reviews out there describing the food and it's quality so I'll talk about the service. We have two toddlers at the time of this... read more

Summary: Given we are in the middle of Michigan, the recipes are pretty close to what you would find in Germany. It would be nice if they offered some of the more traditional German soft drinks and Apple Wine. Otherwise, it's pretty solid. The Good: - The food is very good and we have now been a few times. -...

I have frequented Metzgers for many years now. It is an Ann Arbor Classic that has stood the test of time. It is one of those places that you just cannot go wrong with as the food is fresh and service exemplary. Even if not going for a meal and you want a place to conduct some business or go... More

Our table of 5 tried three appetizers. The onion pie appetizer was excellent. The sausage appetizer was cooked perfectly and the three mustard choices were fun and delicious. The noodle appetizer was just okay. We all ordered dinners and they were very good. I tried a bite of almost everything and there wasn't anything I didn't like. My favorite was... More

and maybe the best red cabbage on the planet, if you go for that sort of thing.... I had the mixed brats, and should of had a couple of weisswurst instead, it was too much and the weiss was the best of the three. German fries, the red cabbage, maybe a little applesauce - heaven! My wife had the schnitzel... More

Its a lot of food, always, but fairly decent. The beer is always good. Some dishes are a bit over sauced, but most are good, Nothing is exceptional, at the same time nothing is bad either.

I have been eating at Metzgers for over 35 years, but this is the first review I have submitted. Had lunch here recently with two family members. All of us were absolutely pleased with our meals. The Copenhagen Schnitzel I had was absolutely fantastic, and although it was quite large for a lunch portion, I ate every bit of it!... More

Unfortunately people in Ann Arbor think they're eatin German Bavarian food but they aren't. This is the worst, fake, German food I have ever had. In Germany where Snitzel is a highlight , you can hear the pounding of the fresh meat. Not here! The food tastes processed and nothing better than a chicken sandwich at McDonald's. Don't waste your... More
