Weber’s, an award-winning Ann Arbor landmark, will mark its 80th anniversary in March. To celebrate, from March 1-31, the restaurant, which is renowned for offering classic American dishes, will offer a multi-course, pre-fixed menu featuring Weber’s Prime Rib of Beef, their house specialty since 1950.
During lunch hours, for $20, diners will receive the house soup or salad; the 10-ounce Reserve Cut of Prime Rib, served with a baked potato; and their choice of the Coconut Snowball or Bumpy Cake.
At dinnertime, the Prime Rib will be available in three sizes: the Reserve Cut for $26; Dinner Cut, which is 12-ounces, for $29; and the 16-ounce Chef’s Cut for $35. The entrée will come with the same options as lunch, as well as a choice of the Judith Point Calamari, Escargot or Shrimp Cocktail. Weber’s regular menu also will be available.
In addition to the pre-fixed menu, Weber’s will have an exciting month-long calendar of live entertainment acts, including Flautist Alexander Zonjic on March 19, in The Habitat Lounge. Welcoming acts seven-nights- a-week, Habitat’s full entertainment schedule can be found at www.webersinn.com/the-habitat.
Weber’s was founded by Herman Weber in 1937 as a small diner called the Hi-Speed Inn. Two years later, it moved locations and officially changed its name to Weber’s. In 1963, the restaurant moved once again, this time to its current location on Jackson Road; the boutique hotel followed six years later. The company is now run by Herman’s son, Ken, who serves as president, alongwith two of his sons, Michael and Brian, who are both vice presidents.
“On behalf of my entire family, including my late father, I am honored to have the opportunity to mark this tremendous milestone. Along with Michael and Brian, we felt it was only appropriate to commemorate our anniversary by highlighting our famous prime rib,” said Ken Weber, president, Weber’s. “Our long and storied history is a testament to the foundation my father laid 80 years ago, as well as to our dedicated staff. I also want to thank our customers, some of whom have been visiting us for their entire lives. We are touched that families, couples, locals, visitors and, even, celebrities, have taken time to visit our independent, family-owned business for everything from a weekend away to the holidays, birthdays and weddings.”
Last spring, Weber’s completed a $2 million renovation of its 158 guest rooms and suites. The remodel, which was highlighted by numerous technology-related upgrades, followed a $4 million update to the facility’s ballrooms, lobby, pool and exterior façade.
