They tried to make what used to be "Milano Bakery" a bar and grill, too bad the only "Tables" you find are practically in the path of the doorway or crammed along the side of the window where you feel like you are being punished and put on a "time out." There are booths but some people like myself prefer a table. I'm 6'5" and weigh around 280lbs. so Being squished in a booth is no fun.
The taste of the food is average, the prices are high for the portions you get on things like steak. I actually laughed in the server's face when she came out with my steak it was so small.I couldn't help it I actually thought she brought me the wrong thing. I could have covered the entire steak with an upside down coffee cup and had plenty of room to spare. Also, we ordered dinner and soup and were not given a bread basket. I always thought that was a given that at dinner you got bread. then we saw another table and they had to ASK for bread. Maybe I'm wrong, but I have never been to a restaurant that was so stingy on rolls.
To their credit they took a building and a layout similar to your average "Dunkin Doughnuts" and they tried to make something nice, it was a good idea but that building isn't big enough to make it into a full scale restaurant.
I went there once before and the burgers were ok, but who cares, you can get a good burger anywhere-and for a lot less money.

Great food coming from an extremely picky diner. The rueben sandwich melts in your mouth and cream of spinach with bacon will hit the spot today. Happy turkey day!!!!

If there was a lower rating I would give it to them! We dined here several times--it got steadily worse until last time we couldn't even finish our meal--I actually found a stone in my food! I will never return there!

We have been dining at the Metro for years and they keep getting better every year!
We have NEVER had a bad/average meal!
The owner has obviously invested a lot of time in his staff as they deliver the absolute best service and make you feel at home, and we travel the world!

Our experience at Metro was unsatisfactory. Service was bad, and the food substandard. We didn't feel the staff seemed attentive, and our salads were platry looking. We won't go back.

I ate here recently and the food quality and staff attentiveness were poor. The soups were bad, and no one seemed to care we had an issue with our meals. Needless to say, we won't be back.

Pros: It seemed convenient

Cons: Staff and food quality poor.

My wife and I went to Metro Grill last week, and she ordered a french dip style sandwich. Mine was okay, but hers was tough and the bread stale. Now this does happen from time to time, but when we brought it to the attention of the manager he was rude and dismissive. Like we were crazy for bringing it up, and he had better things to do. He had the waitress replace the meal, but never told us he was doing so.

I let it go, and when the waitress came back I asked her for the owners name. Incredibly she said that was who we spoke to!! She called him Dinoe.

I will NEVER go to Metro again. My wife and I are still shocked this guy is really the owner. I've eaten out hundreds of times and the owner always seems overly polite. Not this guy. He has no business anywhere near the public!!

I've been to the Metro Grill many times, as it is close to home and offers a wide variety of menu choices. Their soups are always wonderful and they now offer panini sandwiches and variety of wraps as well; which happen to be my favorites! Great place for just dinner for two, the family or a group of friends.

Had dinner at the Metro Grill last night with my wife and two kids. A neighbor of mine had recommended it numerous times as she is a regular there, but we never made it in until last night. I was a little leary of going because I read the negative review on you site, and I must say that my experience ...WAS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE.

The food there is amazing. There is a huge selection with big portions at a great price. Our server was polite and friendly and the food came out hot and fast. More importantly, the Metro Grill is KID FRIENDLY with a good selection.

I am hooked. Highly recommend.

When this place used to be the Charcoal Pit, it was well run and the food was always good. Now that it has been sold to new owners the Metro Grill is notorious for bad food. The last time I ate there the chicken provided a "lasting" presence until the next morning--if you know what I mean. I've had friends bring up bad experiences there as well, so I decided to write a review.

This place was again recently brought to my attention because they catered an event for a nearby car dealer over last years holidays. While I was told the food was edible, the service and food temps were poor.

Nice place to go. The food is great. The people there are really nice and the service is fast and the food is made fresh. I would recommend Charcoal Pit to anyone who wants good food and great service. It's a nice change of pace and the place is really clean, even the bathrooms are nice. And this is coming from someone who is very picky about bathrooms!
