“Excellent all the way around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Always quality - both in food and service. Staff is knowledgeable, accommodation and professional. Frequent customer - weekly fish purchase, takeout and catering. Only great things to say about Metropolitan.

“I don't mind paying more, this is alot more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The fish is excellent. I guess you get what you pay for, right? There are several items that when you see the price, you really have to stop and think. Like the fresh bread....so I don't buy it. Every thing has been good, but beware of major sticker shock.

“The best seafood and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Our family loves Metro. Mark and the staff are terrific and have lots of great recipe ideas. The small store is stocked with some neat things, and it's easy to make a gourmet dinner out of the various locally sourced bread & cheese and other products they carry. We often go here to get the ingredients for dinner rather than eat out-- it tastes better and is cheaper. Our son puts ketchup on everything except their salmon, if that tells you anything about how good it is! We've never had a bad experience, and always look forward to stopping in for a take-out lunch or to pick up the ingredients for a fabulous dinner. If you love oysters, they usually have several varieties and they have always been super fresh. I recommend Metro without reservation.

“Great gourmet food/Fresh Fish selection and amazing take out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I love Metro Seafood. I was hooked (no pun intended) the first time I had their fish and chips. then I went back and bought some tuna to grill and was asked how I planned on preparing it. I thought that was odd, even odder when I was told that i was wrong and they gave me the correct way to cook the tuna on a grill, seasonings etc.
they are extremely friendly and helpful.
Make sure you try some of the sandwiches and salads they make. Their grilled fish taco's are incredible!!!

“Freshest seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Whether you want some fresh oysters on the half shell ( which they will shuck and put on ice for you), or a hot fish taco, this is the place to go! Mark Drabich, makes sure you have the freshest seafood available, along with a fantastic variety. They provide original recipes, delicious sides,including local artisanal cheeses, and breads and featured lebanese delicacies. Yum yum yum!
