My husband and I went to watch our son's College baseball game at Rider Univ, and needed to plan a good meal for him and a few friends. Metro Grill got some great reviews and now I know why! I made a reservation online, and we were seated as soon as we walked in. At first, the very attentive host... More

We arrived at Metro Grill a bit after 9pm. It's located at the end of a small strip mall, but I'm beginning to find this is typical in New Jersey and shouldn't put any bearing on the quality of a place. Even though they close at 11, we weren't sure they would still serve us, but we were offered a... More

I visited the Metro Grille in December 2014 as part of a Christmas dinner with friends. The restaurant was recommended and I decided to give it a try. First...there is a lot of good here. The bar area is very nice. The restaurant is also nice. The decor was appropriate to the holidays and the sound level was good. My... More

The Metro is a great place for dinner, primarily Italian foods. My co-worker had eggplant parm, which looked delicious and she devoured. I got a Shrimp and Scallop red sauce pasta dish. The scallops were perfectly cooked, and they had GF pasta! The red sauce was good, but the fact that they had GF pasta and the perfectly cooked sea... More

This is our second visit to Metro Grill, and it did not disappoint. My husband had the short ribs and he said they were excellent and so was the gravy. He also said that the mashed potatoes were so good, you could eat them by themselves. I had the butter fish, which was spectacular. The fish was flaky and fresh... More

If you eat inside of The Metro Grill in Ewing, you'll find warm cozy lighting, Sinatra playing softly around you, and a contemporary bar-but the food? I've been cooking and cooking well for decades, I've also worked in some of the better restaurants. I'm not a fan of chain restaurants. My belief is that if I can make something better,... More

I've never had a bad meal here, or even a so-so meal. Always delicious. It's the go-to restaurant for when the family gets together. Casual, not pricey, friendly staff (loved our Jersey Girl waitress -"How are you'se doin'?") The walnut chicken is my absolute fave, but tired of ordering the same thing, I've expanded my horizons and must say that... More

Good menu selection, good casual eatery. Did not have an IPA on tap. Have eaten here a number of times, and recommend it. Don't expect more than what it is.
