Zingerman's Roadhouse Ratings and Reviews

We were sat outside without being asked which was fine but I smelled like smoke the rest of the day after a 45 minute lunch. My Dexter Reuben was dry and my friends burger was tastelsss and almost like a big ball inside the bun. Server was good though and our Mac and cheese was awesome!

We had a nice brunch at Zingerman's Roadhouse. They were out of the French Toast I ordered, so I had a Belgian Waffle instead - which, at $9, seemed expensive considering it was literally just one normal sized waffle and nothing else - and it wasn't really anything special. The service was outstanding, however.

The food quality is very good, but the breakfast preparation is uneven. Toast is never toasted, always just warmed. Sometimes the scrambled eggs are perfect, sometimes greasy, sometimes runny. Bacon ordered crisp was barely cooked, and sometimes is just fine. There is no continuity.
Service is out of this world great. Everyone is friendly, knowledgable.

Reservation was for 7:45 but didn't get out of the game until 7:30. Called to change time and was given an 8:30 seating with no issues at all. Arrived at 8:30 and was seated right away, even though they were telling walk-in's that it would be an hour wait. Great food, friendly staff, would recommend eating here.

Over the years I have found the Roadhouse to run very hot and cold. I have had great meals there, but they have been mingled with less than stellar experiences, ranging from food to service issues. On this occasion I ordered handmade corn dogs and sweet potato fries. They were served fairly quickly, but neither were particularly hot or crispy. Corn dog batter was decidedly mushy/soft.
Collard greens with bacon and smoked ham ...
Collard greens with bacon and smoked ham hocks was the closest to the "real deal" that I've ever had in a restaurant. Butterscotch pudding from scratch, the bread that they make and serve at dinner is a meal in itself. I made sure they included the leftover bread in my doggie bag. Wait staff is laid back and knowledgeable at all things Zingerman.

Horrible. Our waitress disappeared. Food came out wrong. Then my correct food was over cooked. Had to wait for a third meal to arrive. Went and got the manager for drink refills and then for our check. Not near what I had expected! Very disappointed.

Our server wasn't very attentive, she kind of forgot about us I think. We were a party of 4, 2 of our entrees the sides were not warm, my steak was perfect and warm but mashed potatoes and green beans were pretty much cold.

You can be sure you're going to eat well when you visit Zingerman's Roadhouse. I highly recommend the mac and cheese, as well as the unbelievable butterscotch pudding that was recommended by our fantastic waiter, James. Seriously, order the pudding.

We've gone here pretty often over the last few years - I've never really authored a review on the place. My wife and kids love it, but maybe I'm a little easier to please but initially I felt like I could take it or leave it. The food is great, but a bit pricey for what you get.
This past week we had a great experience there, and that has been the pattern lately. Our server was great, the food was excellent. Again the tab kind of hits you at the end, but at this point they have been so consistently great that I know we will continue to go without hesitation.

How is the Roadhouse? Answer, it's always great, educated waitstaff, enthusiastic expediters and very capable kitchen staff. My trout was grilled to perfection and delicious! So many creative things on the menu which changes daily. Wished I lived closer, but well worth the ride and your time to try Zingermans.

We have been celebrating special occasions at The Roadhouse for years - never disappointed.
We had a great server named Nancy who was so kind to us - and so professional! Lovely party for my friend's birthday. Thank you.

Overpriced and low quality and small serving size. . $26.00 for fish & chips served with burnt fries. $32.00 for salmon that wasn't cooked completely along with dried up pea pods when it was suppose to be green beans.
Meals came out very quickly but waited 15minutes for our check and then another 15 for the check to be picked up. It was a Sunday at 5:30 and a third of the room was empty so it wasn't like they were extremely busy.
I opted for veggies instead mashed potato because of the calories. I was given a bag of pastries for my trouble of the undercooked salmon. Well thanks!!!
When seated I mentioned that the water glass was dirty because it had a white rim all the way around about a third of the way up from the bottom. The hostess thanked me for being so observant BUT it wasn't dirty just scaling. Well get new water glasses because it wasn't very appealing to be seated and the first thing you see were the disgusting glasses.
We won't be back!

It did not live up to my expectations! When you walk in the door and see the James Beard nominations you expect quality. All of the food was too salty, the mac and cheese was greasy and there were way too many flies for a restaurant in the US.

I've had good meals at the roadhouse, but it's inconsistent. I took 3 guests for a birthday, the server was friendly.
Our mussels were very small creatures, sauce was good, bread delicious.
One guest ordered Salisbury steak medium, but it was rare. He ordered a garden salad with tomatoes but got a Ceasar salad which was exchanged for garden salad but still without tomatoes. Overall ok but not up to Roadhouse standards.

We LOVE Zingerman's and eat there every time we are in town visiting family. Our service has always been exceptional outside of this last visit. While the server was not very attentive until my sister pointed out to him that we felt the service was lacking, we have to assume that is a one off experience. My experience with the staff there the week before on a previous trip was amazing. So amazing that after a long day, I was blown away by how gracious the bartender was in giving me his time and conversation/suggestions.
We live in Georgia but have been in Michigan a LOT over the last month. We eat at one of the Zingerman's locations once a day when we are there. We also are Ari "disciples". His business philosophy and passion are unmatched in our eyes.
Don't miss the non-alc cocktails, the macaroni and cheeses, or the coffee rubbed fish. (The next morning we got breakfast burritos at the drive thru. Holy Cow. I didn't know someone could make a breakfast burrito that was sooooo delicious.)

Overall it was a great experience. It took a little while to be seen once we were sat, such that my boyfriend was getting irritated. Once we saw our server she was friendly and answered all of our questions well. I ordered a cheeseburger medium rare. I'm not someone who sends food back but when I cut into it, it was most definitely barely rare. I sent it back and the staff was very apologetic, they brought me a new burger and it was delicious and cooked just right. I was offered more fries and and was given a complimentary pastry which was also delicious. What started out a little rocky was made up for and the food really was delicious.

Fried chicken and ribs came highly recommended. Ribs were good. Fried chicken was really mediocre at best. Mac and cheese was good. Peach pie was also ok. Pudding was really great. Quality of ingredients is there, maybe we ordered wrong but nothing was a standout. We were really excited to go to Zingerman's and left underwhelmed. Also, it's expensive.

I took my College-bound Grandson there for brunch. It is his favorite spot for breakfast items. In fact, he ordered 2 items: Eggs Benedict and the Corned Beef hash dish! The food is really good and I love the combinations that are available. Brian, our waiter, was exceptional....friendly, attentive and very professional. Having been a waitress during College, I was in a position to recognize "great" service! Thanks for a wonderful visit as I bid my Grandson "Adios" as he begins his college years. We enjoyed our "date" together!!
