Nice place to go for lunch. A lot of variety on the menu. We ordered the donuts - which are huge! Very tasty. Nice place to go with larger group. Eggs, salads, burgers and more.

It's hard to go wrong with hamburgers and mac & cheese, but somehow they did. The burgers weren't cooked evenly; we asked for medium, but it was well-done on one side and through the middle, and the other side was almost rare. The toppings were fresh, but the fries had no flavor and weren't crispy on the outside. A good portion of them were also very short (1 inch or less), like they were cut from scraps.

The cheeses they use for the mac & cheese are, in my opinion, the wrong choice. The blend has a sour taste to it that most people wouldn't expect. Also, the browned bit that's normally on top of a good mac & cheese was sparse and mixed in. I had probably 4 bites and didn't want any more.

The gelato we had for dessert was delicious, but you can get the same stuff at the Zingerman's deli without a full meal attached.

Our server and the hostesses were very friendly and the atmosphere is cute, but the food was, unfortunately, not up to par with what I expect from the Zingerman's name and other restaurants in town. The Roadhouse is expensive compared to similar restaurants, but the quality doesn't justify it. I had planned to bring guests here originally, but I'm glad I tried the place beforehand; I wont be coming back.

Good place to eat with friends.The Mac-n-Cheese is fantastic and I was really glad to see that they had a gluten free version of this great dish.

Classic roadhouse decor with the unusual twist that the walls display thousands of eclectic salt and pepper shakers collected by the owner. Lots of booths and large tables for groups of friends. Good hoppy ales and draft beer selection. Food was a little pricey but very good. They heavily market the freshness of their fish and the organic nature of their meats. I can't veryify any of that, but I can say that the meats did taste very good, tender and the pulled pork / pulled chicken was excellent.

We actually meant to go to the Deli version of Zingerman’s because we were only in Ann Arbor for a day and read that was the “place” to be, especially for college kids. Although we were surprised to find out we were in the wrong restaurant, it was well worth the mistake! Everything, and I mean everything we ordered was delicious. I had the wagon wheel sandwich (pulled beef, onion rings, and two different types of cheese) with fries. The sandwich was super juicy, and it was loaded with delicious and fresh-tasting cheese. The fries were perfectly crunchy and salty. My mom’s goat cheese-grilled cheese wowed her, as well. Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was bustling and warm. Overall, this was a cool restaurant with home style food that did not disappoint!
