About Us

For almost 90 years Metzger’s German Restaurant has been an iconic part of the Ann Arbor cultural scene and a reminder of the contributions of Ann Arbor’s early German immigrants.

For all those years, despite political and economic hardships, the Metzger family has served rich, tasty, and traditional German cuisine. Residents of all communities flocked here for excellent food and European ambience.

Today, having spanned four generations of Metzger’s, the restaurant thrives and meets the highest standards of traditional German food.
Since 1928 Metzger’s German Restaurant has served more than seven million guests.

John Metzger (3rd generation), and his nephew, Chef Ryan Dunkelberger (4th generation), along with managers and staff totaling hundreds of years of service welcome you to enjoy Metzger’s. Whether you live in wonderful Ann Arbor, or are just passing through, or attending one of the exciting University of Michigan or area sporting events, we hope you visit Metzger’s – a family tradition since 1928.


We take reservations for parties of 6 or more. Please and kindly use the telephone and not email for your reservation – we don’t want to miss it! (734)668-8987. Thanks.
