Metzger's is a prime example of one of this area's oddities: great restaurants hidden in strip malls. Metzger's was originally located in downtown Ann Arbor, but when the original owner retired, his children weren't interested in continuing the restaurant. They eventually changed their minds, but the downtown location was already sold.
Unless you are sitting at a window or outside (which is still pleasant), it is easy to forget that you are in a strip mall. Metzger's is nicely decorated with various German posters and other items, and the service is consistently good (a rarity in Ann Arbor). They serve a wide variety of good German food and (of course) beer. Although the prices look high, they are fair considering that most entrees are large enough to share. Our favorite is the appetiser Spaetzel mit Kaese (spaetzel noodles with cheese).
