Authentic German food

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... read 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

Had family lunch 12/29/14. Slow service, below average food, small portions, high prices for what you get. One small cabbage roll with cardboard like potato pancakes over $10. Left broke and hungry.

We visit here at least once a year during the fall for a big family dinner, and we are never disappointed. This is the place to go for German food, with great entrees and sides. There is a good draft beer selection for a variety of German beers, and the menu includes German classics as well as other, more standard... More

From out of nowhere came this place. We used to turn off the freeway, drive past the strip-mall entrance, never knowing what we were missing. Then an unknown review. The rest is, as they say, history. It's even more meaningful now as Thanksgiving and Christmas nears, with it's cozy, warm, German and European decor. So inviting and at home. The... More
