Quite tasty!

Its been a year or more since we have last been here. Just wasn't that impressed our last time, but we've heard good things lately, so decided to try it again. Glad we did. Seems they have revamped the menu a bit. Some new appetizers and entrees. Pulled pork sliders were tasty. As was the twisted... read more

We stop here when we want something special but need variety for the family. Lots of choices and never a bad meal.

On a recent trip, the food and overall experience were much better than in August of last year, The food was excellent, the service stellar, and the prices very reasonable. Just goes to show that one should be willing to give a restaurant a second chance unless the first experience was a total disaster. Highly recommended after this trip.

We're been here a few times, and always had a delicious meal and great service. I love that they have gluten free buns so I can enjoy the yummy Reuben. My husband loved the turkey sandwich. I also love the decor, comfortable and inviting!

We moved into the area six years ago and have gone to metro grill about 5 or 6 times a year. We usually go for lunch. The other evening we had a taste for a burger (they really have good burgers) As we were walking in a sign at the front door stated a special for Three olives vodka for... More

We lived in the area for years and never thought to eat here. One weekend we decided to and its been a regular ever since. I just love the cranberry chicken wrap and the broasted potatoes are SOOOO good. Husband loved the broasted chicken too. Pretty much everything we eat there is good. BTW, the wonton wrapped cheese sticks are... More

Been going to Metro for years. Overall good food and service. Never can recall a "bad" meal. I've only had one negative service experience from a waiter. Wish they had later hours and delivery zone was larger. It's always my go to place local.

Great food, big portions, super staff and the price is worth it. This is the place to eat at, not fast foods, it is like they have been cooing it just for you. Thank goodness we like right down the street it makes it easier to go and eat.

My daughter suggested we all stop here after shopping. We had beef Panini's and I had the shrimp point boy. We also had the chicken soup and side salads. All was above average very tasty and the service was also very nice.
