Been here for ever since 1904. The food is great. Sausage soup is incredible especially on a cold Michigan day. Sausages and kraut was great full of flavor. I will return again when in the area.

We stop by Jacobys nearly every visit downtown as it is a short walk from Greektown and the food is fantastic! Potato pancakes are the best! Old school German surroundings in historical Detroit make for a really great space. Reasonable prices make the picture complete!

The only place in Downtown Detroit where you'll get authentic German food. I've been to Germany several times and its amazing how good their food is. Good selection of items and a great staff! Don't forget to order your German beer!
