Spätzle, Knödel and Essen Roulades, might sound like spells cast by Harry Potter, but the only magic being served up at Metzger’s is authentic German cuisine. Since 1928, the German restaurant has been temptng the palate of Tree City residents with rustic southern German cuisine, such as the world famous “Frankfurter” of Frankfurt, Germany and Spätzle (tiny dumplings) which are the southern version of northern Knödel (potato dumplings). Bavarian influence is evident throughout the menu. Southern Germanic foods are not complex, yet they are robust with flavor and heartiness. For four generations, the Metzger family has kept the tradition alive, complete with European ambiance and loyal customers.

The menu includes many classic entrees as well as some new fan favorites. The classics include Wiener Schnitzel (a breaded pork cutlet), a variety of wursts and roulades (a hand cut round of beef, rolled and stuffed with bacon, onion, pickles and spices). The house specialty, Sauerbraten, is a delicious roast beef marinated in a sour cream wine sauce. The fan favorites include the Käsespätzle (cheese Spätzle), which is an appetizer serving of warm dumplings served over sauerkraut, smothered with onions and melted Swiss cheese. Another favorite is the delicious Bavarian red cabbage, dished-out alongside an entree. The menu also includes side dishes like German potato salad, spätzen (German noodles), sauerkraut and potato pancakes. Metzger's also takes pride in their selection of genuine German beer as well as a wine list complete with regional items and the famously aromatic German wine, Gewürztraminer .

Metzger's serves soul-satisfying family recipes from an authentic German kitchen, complete with European flavor and inspiring meals. The decor is filled with German memorabilia that takes you straight to Deutschland. More than just a local eatery, Metzger’s is a trip to Germany.
