Not the greatest location, but well worth the visit. I came here solo on a Friday night and sat at the bar. Ordered the schnitzel with mushroom gravy sauce and pretty much had an out of body experience. I woke up with mushroom gravy on my shirt, pants and shoes. When I came to, I savored in the afterglow of... More

Growing up in Ann Arbor, as I did, we ate at Metzger's quite often at it former location. The Old German was fine, too, but I always preferred Metzger's. This visit was special since I hadn't been to Metzger's in a dozen-or-so years and was back in Ann Arbor for a 50th class reunion. True to form, I ordered the... More

We stopped to eat here on our way to Battle Creek the other day. I have to say, we were so impressed with this restaurant we will make 40 minute drive from our house again just to eat here! The atmosphere is festive, the decor charming, the service good and most importantly, the food delicious! I would not have expected... More

Had lunch wth colleagues. Nice, cozy, home-style ambiance. Our server was just recently hired and was exceptional - very attentive, helpful, efficient, and had a good sense of humor. I wanted a light meal so I ordered the perch, lightlty sauteed. Everyone in our group enjoyed his/her meal - positive comments on the German fare. It was delicious, just the... More

My hotel was right next to this restaurant and I was excited to see that they served German food. I was stationed in Germany 20+ years ago and I was able to relive some good memories during dinner. The beer was excellent and the food was just as I remembered it. I liked it so much that I came back... More

While in Ann Arbor for a day trip, I decided to try something different. Although they had a nice selection of sausage and meat dishes, I'm not a meat-eater. I couldn't make a decision on what to get and was delighted to find a side sampler. And I believe it was only $7.99. I chose potato pancakes, spaetzle, sweet and... More

I went there with my co-workers. We were seated right away on a Tuesday night. The waitress was nice. I ordered the Perch which was their specialty but it was just ok. Food was filling for all of us as they gave large portions.

We dined here the evening of our arrival in Ann Arbor. Overall, the quality of the food was average. The fish was better than the german dinner. The atmosphere was pleasant.

I love German food and I have tried a very large number of so-called German restaurants in the Midwest. Without a doubt Metzgers is the place with the best German food in the entire State of Michigan. Metzgers is also a lot better than the vaunted Berghoff German restaurant in Chicago. Metzgers is a little outside of the city of... More
