The restaurant claims to have been around for a while so seeing it on the end of a strip plaza was interesting. While walking in, I heard an elderly patron say to the host that it was as good as she remembered. So that was neat hearing a testimonial like that just walking in the door! I had the beer... More

Really enjoyed this authentic place, even after just returning from the Mother Company. The sausages were delicious as were all other dishes. Great ambience with warm decor in center of town.

We were hungry for German food, and were not disappointed. It is more of a casual place, and was very, very busy on a Sunday night even though they close at 8 on Sunday. Everything was delicious, and our waitress couldn't have been more attentive. The restaurant is close to Ann Arbor and right off II 94, so you don't... More

If you're like me, not fond of heavy German cuisine but are out for a meal with those who do, there are enough menu choices to satisfy a lighter palate. My German food loving companions sampled a number of the offerings and came away happy with their choices. Metzgers has been in the Ann Arbor area for years and is... More

Conveniently located right off I95 near Ann Arbor. We don't head towards Ann Arbor without out planning a stop for very good German food and dark beer. Schnitzel is one of our favorites at Metzger's but we we occasionally try one of their specials. Last trip the special was a cabbage roll which was filling and quite tasty. Highly recommend.

While in Ann Arbor, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express that was right next to Metzgers so we decided to walk on over for dinner. It was Friday the day before Fourth of July and we arrived at about 5pm, it was crowded inside but we were able to get a seat immediately. We were greeted immediately by our... More

Wife and I went out to Metzger's last week for dinner. THe food was excellent, the beer I had was excellent also. The decor was nice. My only negative comment was the waitress not coming to our table the first ten minutes of us being seated. I do have to say she did a fine job once she engaged. My... More

Years ago Ann Arbor lost the two downtown German restaurants run by the Metzger Family. A big loss to this historically very German community and part of my ancestry and travels. Treasures were sold off and we waited. Not disappointed the Ann Arbor area was rewarded with the reopening of Metzger's out in the western township and slowly the treasured... More
