German food near the highway

This was the 3rd time we've eaten at Metzger's, we always seem to go at off times so we've never had to wait and the food comes out really quickly. The portion size is very large, I was able to bring home enough leftovers to make another meal. I ordered the schnitzel with mushroom sauce, the... read more

We are talking major food heaven, German-style, in this homey, traditional Ann Arbor landmark. I couldn't believe how delicious my Paprika Schnitzel and spatzle with red cabbage was! Mom had a smoked pork chop, Kassler Rippchen, that tasted every bit as scrumptious as what she remembered while growing up in Berlin. Her beer was dark and flavorful without being heavy.... More

Metzger's serves German and American food in a Bavarian setting with wonderful old world recipes. Fresh local foods prepared with great detail add up to wonderful offerings. Full bar with many German beers on tap added to the experience. High turnover keeps the lagers fresh and the enjoyment high. Good fun spot for lunch or dinner. I did both, and... More

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
