    The entire staff is very attentive. Our server, Sharon, was especially good. From the start, she was aware of menu changes. If she couldn't answer a question she went back to the kitchen to get a response. We were a large group and not easy to accommodate, but she was terrific. Everyone was pleased with their dinner. The food has been consistently good every time I've been to this restaurant. I highly recommend it.

    This place is crazy after a football game in Ann Arbor which is when we went. Be sure to have reservations because the wait is 1 1/2 hours if you don't, especially on a football weekend. It is quite noisy but we expected that. We had three teen boys with us so they enjoyed the energy of the place. It's a little hard to hear the waiter because of the noise. The food is very good but rather expensive and some of the portions are small. They have a kids menu that is limited but not really anything for teens on the regular menu. The burgers are a little unusual. However, everything is fresh which is a real plus. Seafood is flown in daily and the beef is from a local farm. Overall we enjoyed It very much and will go back when they are not quite so busy.

    We met 2 of our grown children with our 2 grandchildren at Zingerman's Roadhouse for Sunday brunch. The food was delicious and the service was very good without being intrusive. They even had the high chair we requested at our table. The place was packed so we were glad we made reservations. It was a fun event for our family.

    I have yet to have a bad meal here. The food experience starts with warm freshly baked bread, chewy warm center and perfect crunch of a crust. Everything from salad to soup to entree to dessert which follows (that I've tried) is delicious with well-balanced flavors. In addition, the wait staff are very professional, friendly and attentive yet unobtrusive. The prices are moderately high, but unlike some places I feel that the food is worth it and we keep going back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    I booked a reservation for my family for 7:15pm. We got there around 7:10 and were told that we would be seated in a few minutes. We weren't actually seated until 7:45pm, a full 30 minutes after our reservation time, and only about 10 minutes sooner than they were quoting walk-ins of the same party size. After we were seated, the service was terrible. Our waiter didn't tell us anything that they were out of, so we all found what we wanted and then he seemed frustrated that we needed a few minutes after he told us that they ran out of what we wanted to eat. He said he would be back in a few minutes and actually came back in about 10 minutes, which is way longer than necessary. Overall I was not happy with this experience.

    It may be because it was Saturday lunch time, the BBQ ribs appears to be from the night before and were tasteless and kind of burnt (like recooked). Service was very attentive and nice, but the BBQ as a "roadhouse" is not up to par.

    I have been to Zingerman's Roadhouse many times. Typically the quality of the food is excellent. This time, at Sunday brunch, there was a very long wait for the food to arrive. When it came, some people in the party received cold food, including one dish that was a rubbery, dry omelet. The restaurant did comp that meal, which was appreciated, and the server was very pleasant. I always find the noise level too high there, especially in the back room. Somewhat better in the front room, though the front room routinely gets too hot with the fireplace on.

    First time for breakfast/brunch. Yummy! Huevos rancheros were a hit with a fellow diner. Chicken mac and cheese with another. Coffee cake and fresh doughnuts were da bomb! Fellow diner tried the eye opener -- sort of a poutine with eggs on top and enjoyed immensely. I made my own plate of sides. Mac and cheese was great as it always is and breakfast potatoes were done just right. Only two disappointments were that I ordered eggs scrambled soft and got runny globs, not fluffy, and the French toast. Coffee was a strong tasty cuppa joe and we all liked!

    I knew where the roadhouse was, but had never been until someone in my family decided the Roadhouse would make a great place for a birthday dinner. They were right. It was great. The fried chicken was moist and well seasoned. The potatoes and gravy were great. Everyone in our party was pleased with what they ordered. Thank you for making a birthday dinner special!

    I love this place. It is both my go-to restaurant and also my favorite occasion restaurant, and the food and service are usually superb. The service that night was slow--and it wasn't particularly busy, so I think it was just a distracted (although kind and personable) waiter (male). He was friendly, recognized me as a frequent customer, but we didn't see him for about 30 minutes after we got our food. And it was difficult actually getting the bill. So, good evening, enjoyable food and company (an amazing cassoulet), but where was the guy? I suppose it let us talk a little longer…

    As always wonderful, friendly and fast service! All of this and great food on a Michgan Football Saturday is amaizing! Most accommodating to our needs - even though noisy, my friend who has some hearing loss was able to carry on a conversation. Very good BBQ and the Mac 'n Cheese was to die for! The fries cooked have been cooked a little longer for my taste - not as crispy as I like.
