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

I love their salads, wraps and sides. I'm a vegetarian though and those are my favorite meals. They have a lot to choose from and everything is always good. They updated the place a year or so ago and it's very stylish and comfortable.

We sat at the bar deciding if we wanted to eat there or at a table, most of which needed cleaning. Within five minutes we observed the bartender play with her hair, wipe her face with her hands and proceed to squeeze a lime into a customers drink. Then she stuck her nose into a carton of OJ to see... 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
