A group of our team members went to wish one of the group farewell. We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the food. It was tasty, and the servings were nice sized.
A great place to share a special time with friends or family.

Valentine's Day is always a tricky night for dinner, but it actually wasn't crazy busy. The Valentine's menu is awesome and I will again wait a year to eat the crab salad (crab, avocado, capers, yum). The lobster pot pie was super rich and I probably should have balanced my seafood better. The champaign was a perfect compliment to this delicious meal. My daughter had a classic cheeseburger and fries, which too was a great compliment to my meal ;). There was a large group in the room where we were eating, but the serving staff did not miss a beat! Our food was timely and they were expertly attentive.
Another great meal.

We have been going to Zingerman's now for 4 years worth of anniversarys and we absolutely love it. The menu can be a bit on the pricier side, however if you are a foodie, it is SO worth it! The staff is great, the food is great, the drinks are awesome! We LOVE going here and will go many times more in our future!! THANK YOU ZINGERMANS!!!!

I love the Roadhouse. It took a while to get the hang of it- it is expensive compared to other places at least partly because they use premium ingredients entirely, provide incredible service, modify or create whatever in a friendly, even neighborhoody way. To entirely enjoy your meal, I would suggest giving up on economy (or plan on it being 2x what you thought and then be happy it's a bit less) and just have what you want. That was the main thing I had to adjust to but love the place and the people. Wine list could use some work if you care about that. Cocktails and beers are great however.

I had a group of 10 to celebrate my wife's b-day. All was great except the roof mounted heater in the sun-room/patio was frying my scalp. I was asking for the heat to be turned off while other diners were complaining it was too cold. I could not enjoy fully my celebration.

Our table was ready within 5 minutes of arriving while the wait for walk-ins was 40 plus minutes. Heidi was a great server and even though she was obviously very busy. Food was very good and the portions were just right. Of course the lovely bread that they brought before lunch helped.

Zingerman's is a favorite of mine mainly because of the quality and freshness of the food served. The service is unparalleled in the respect that although not always perfect, the employees care about your experience, your food choice and how to enhance your visit. Whether helping you find an amazing food or drink (my favorites are mac and cheese, sweet potato fries, BBQ, corn dogs, calamari, sea scallops, smashed potatoes, and the list goes on....) or telling you the history of the rice you're eating, the meal is delicious, fun, and unpretentious. Enjoy!

Food was great as usual, but the service was very slow on Saturday night. It took an excessive amount of time between the appetizers & entrees. I asked the server if they could speed up the kids meals b/c we had 2 kids on the verge of melting down, but she did not. In fact, she went to another table immediately after we spoke and talked to them for awhile. I don't know if she had too many tables or what the issue was. The service was a disappointment to everyone at the table--particularly for a place that charges as much as the Roadhouse does.

Zingerman's never disappoints. However at this business breakfast, the noise level was a little too high from the neighboring table. The waitress helped navigate the menu for a Paleo water and it worked out, but it would be great to see more such options on the menu (no cheese and turkey bacon would be fantastic).
Going again? You betcha!

We have been to Zingerman's Roadhouse several times, and this was the first time we had a negative experience. We had reservations for my husband's birthday, but we didn't feel comfortable taking our time as they seemed in a great rush to get us out the door, the hostess checking our table more than once to see if we were done. The meal, which is normally the highlight, was very disappointing. The BBQ pork had several large chunks of fat in it, and even with that, it seemed scantier than usual. They got my husband's order wrong and gave him the wrong side dish. I am so disappointed that we celebrated his birthday there.

We lived in Ann Arbor 5 years ago, and were frequent visitors. Last weekend we had to drive to Detroit, and would be passing through Ann Arbor on the way so decided to stop at the Roadhouse. Food was great as always, although service was a bit under par. Worth the drive.

We went to the Roadhouse to celebrate our daughters 15th birthday. Ari spoke at her high school last month, and she was very impressed with him, she thinks it is great how responsible he is as a business man,( having the farm, and gmo free produce, and antibiotic, steroid free meat.) The environment was great, we sat in the closed in patio. It smelled fantastic :) our service was great, a very knowledgeable server, she also described ingredients, and flavors very well. The price was very high, but our daughter was very happy all around.

Saturday afternoon was a delight, Zingermans Roadhouse is always a favorite and didn't disappoint we enjoyed oysters, a pastrami special sandwhich which was amazing! I believe Amy was our server and she was just delightful even though she was very busy! Thank you

The Roadhouse is the essence of you get what you pay for. If you want the best possible ingredients prepared with skill and care, don't hesitate. Of course there is a bit of a premium attached to top quality, so don't expect chain restaurant prices for casual fine dining. We go there several times a month and have yet to be disappointed.

The best resataurant in Ann Arbor! ;) I came here on a date with my boyfriend who had never dined at zingermans before and we both loved the experience. I'm sure he'll come back with me again soon for brunch or breakfast!! ❤️

Met with family for an early dinner. Most ordered the BBQ... pulled pork sandwich, pulled chicken, slider trio, BBQ beef dinner...
Variety of sauces were appealing; sides were on point (fries, sweet potato fries, mac and cheese). Good service, fun place.

We ventured outside of our "normal" menu items at the Roadhouse and as always Zingerman's delivered. My husband has the chicken fried steak - the smokiness of the gravy was wonderful! I had the prosciutto wrapped haddock which was cooked perfectly and will become on of my "go-to" dishes.
