American
The seventh member of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Roadhouse opened in 2003 with the vision of bringing really good American food to the community. The Roadhouse has worked hard to create its own truly unique food culture, transforming high-quality ingredients into traditional, full-flavored dishes after years of studying American foodways.

With chef Bob Bennett at the helm of the kitchen, and our James Beard Award nominated staff’s dedication to great service, the Roadhouse draws in regulars from all over. We welcome our fans from right down the block or from all over the country. Buttermilk Fried Chicken, award-winning Mac ‘n Cheese, NOLA Gumbo, Nashville Hot Chicken, Oyster Po’Boys, full-flavored burgers, and Donut Sundaes are just a few Roadhouse specialties that people look forward to every time they dine with us. Beyond these tried-and-true dishes, the Roadhouse is also a destination for really good BBQ!

On a very busy football game Saturday, the staff was attentive and helpful. The food was excellent. And we were seated at the time of our reservation and never hurried to finish up and get out. Great dining experience.

I enjoy eating here I do not ever recall having problems. I do wish to eat on the patio more often. I wish there was away to know when certain staff is working because when Laura is there she knows what I like as in drinks. The only thing I would like is I could always be seated on the patio.

Restaurant needs some love (benches ripped) especially with the prices. They used to offer bread with dinner and that is no longer. They should also consider environmentally friendly take out containers. If you want to be a $30-$50 an entree restaurant you need to step up the game.

Zingermans roadhouse was great. Nice to see the tables spread out to protect staff and customers. Food was great. I over ordered as usual as their portion sizes are large. Overall treat time as usual.

The food is always outstanding, the service was very good but a bit slow due to the restaurant being packed, we didn’t mind the wait. A missing link for me was a strong, non-alcoholic drink program. I would like to see a more robust selection of drinks AND a truly inventive mock-tail drink program. We live 3 hours away and meet our sons there and I would like to enjoy something other than Sprecher’s root beer (which is delicious on draft).

Well worth a visit for the food, service and ambiance.

It was odd that there was not a paper cocktail menu, there was a paper menu for all other items, specials, deserts, etc.

When I asked for a cocktail menu the server said I had to look up the cocktails on the website.

I love Zingerman's. Sadly, the service was terrible. We ordered coffee and the server did not bring a spoon or sugar. We order cake and the server did not bring a knife to cut it despite the fact that we let him know we were going to share it. A friend ordered tea and she had to remind the server to bring it (and we are talking about hot water and a tea bag...not that complex...). My food was not that good either.

There are terrific gluten-free options and the staff are very knowledgeable. They have gluten-free fried chicken, a fried chicken sandwich, AND macaroni and cheese. There is a dedicated fryer for the fries too. These items are all very hard to find gluten-free and they do an amazing job with the food! I can't wait to come back.

Service was excellent as always, however my Po'boy whitefish sandwich was not good. 4 small pieces of fried whitefish that tasted very bland on soggy bread and that cost $21. So the value was very poor.

Made a reservation for Brunch/Lunch on Sunday. It was busy but not packed with people. I thought it was a little pricey for lunch, but the portions were very large and the food was excellent. We will be going back.

Very COVID-mitigation observant; semi-outdoor space for dining; excellent service; food was good, but a little pricey - perhaps that's the market right now. Really appreciate the use of open table.
