Had dinner at Metzgers and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent. The wait staff were friendly. I had the jager schnitzel, fried potatoes, and spatzel. I enjoyed the meal and the dunkel was very good. Recommend this German restaurant. One of my favorites anywhere.

Metzer's has a long illustrious history in Ann Arbor. I had not been there in 10 yearrs. It is not only a great place for traditional German food (the chicken livers are to die for!), but my guests all had local fish (Perch, Whitefish etc)...More
