I'm always surprised when I join my friend for dinner at this place near her house. The size of the place is massive, the staff is always super friendly, and the menu takes some time to get through. The offerings are plenty: breakfast any time of day (I haven't tried any breakfast items yet - I've only been to the... More

Metro remains the same. Good service and reasonably good food. Prices are typical of a dinner. I was with a large group and the service was great.

Been here before last year. Good parking convenient location. Quick seating friendly wait staff. Place is clean, well maintained and quiet. Ordered chicken pasta soup served promptly and hot ; it was tasty. Ordered burger with cheese and mushrooms extra crisp fries. Place was not crowded. Entree was a little slow for 1:45 pm. Burger is delicious.

Been here twice, once for dinner and once after show snack. Found the food OK but the prices were very high. Didn't help that both times we came in the host made us wait to be seated while he finished what he was doing. One time a personal conversation and once adding dinner special to the menus.Will not be back.

For me Metro is the go to diner when I'm home. Huge menu, great food, on site bakery and some awesome staff. You get the occasional distracted server but the food is worth it.
