I have been a fan of Metzgers for over 50 years because one of the things that you can count on is consistency. We had the Rheinischer Sampler - half portions of Sauerbraten and Wiener Schnitzel served with spatzen and red cabbage and everything tasted the same as it did 50 years ago. It was topped off with a pint... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Metzgers. We had the schnitzel and the sauce was so delicious. The portions are large, so be prepared to ask for a box. What we decided to do was to ask for 4 side items, coleslaw, red cabbage, German potato salad, and sauerkraut (definitely tooting material!) and we placed all the four dishes between... More

I had the pork ribs and sauerkraut, very good, worth the trip and money. We had a great pitcher of German Beer also, very good.

The place is adorned with all kinds of German artwork, beer steins, etc. My wife had the sauerbraten and spaetzle which was pretty boring. Since I am not too fond of German food I had the swordfish with olive tapenade which was quite good except the chopped up olive topping didn't do anything to improve the fish, I also had... More

The food was good and portions nice. We tried the pork schnitzel with sides of German potato salad (tart), red beet salad (sweet/tart), and cucumber salad. Tasty. Would like to try other things on the menu.

Every meal we've had is outstanding. You can tell it's all fresh food, locally sourced when possible. If you like traditional German food you have to try this gem in Ann Arbor.

This was my first visit to Metzgers but my mother has been coming here since the 40s. She has always bragged about the food and she was not wrong when I had my first bite of potato salad. The food was delicious, the wait staff friendly, and the atmosphere family oriented. The haus platter for two was excellent with a... More

My husband and I used to go to Metzgers often when we were students in the 1970s. We visited Ann Arbor recently and went to Metzger's new location. Our dinner was as excellent as we remembered it. We had our old favorite: sauerbraten, German potato salad, spaetzel, red cabbage.

Been a part of our family tradition since my parents first looked into moving to Michigan. They stopped at Metzger's in 1963 when the restaurant was downtown and our love for the place has never waned. We enjoy taking family and friends to explore their variety of great eats. The House Platter for two is a top choice for feasting... More
