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.

Extreme German décor as expected - tons of steins and plates around the place. We both had Weiner Schnitzel, Red cabbage, German potato salad. The veal was "ok", as was the cabbage, didn't like the potato salad at all. Really missing Richter's Chalet in Dearborn...More

Excellent schnitzel and really authentic German food. Great choice of German beer and very good service.. It is always crowded, so be sure to go early and maybe a possible wait for a table ,but well worth it.

We always visit Metzger's after a U-M game! Even though that is a busy time for them we are always able to make reservations. Every time we go we have a great time. I prefer Sauerbraten, and wifey likes the schnitzle with the mushroom sauce....More
