We ordered take-out sub sandwiches for lunch. I had a half of the #11 ($6.75/$12.50 for a whole) which was salami, capicola, prosciutto and provolone with tomato, onion, oil, vinegar and shredded lettuce, It was very tasty and quite hearty. There is seating to eat...More

This is a great place for getting subs. A half size sub is a huge size. There are so many specialty subs to choose from and always homemade desserts to go with them. You should definitely try it if you are in town

Stay away from non sub items if you want a positive dining experience. I foolishly ordered a rueben which they served on a chewy sub roll, which promptly fell apart because of all the dressing and because it wasn't grilled. Silly me.

Very good sandwiches here. I recently tried one of their paninis,the Julius, and it was fantastic. I've never had a bad experience and I've gotten a lot of sandwiches :)

I'm a regular customer and therefore very in-tune with their sandwiches. I always have the same order and it's very consistent, but my friends also have their usual and they also say the quality, consistency and cost are very good.

I've been to Metcalf's a few times now and it's always been good. I've settled on ordering the proscito caprice salad when I visit now. To me it's the best value, I find that most of the sandwich prices are high. The service is friendly...More

This sub/sandwich shop has been around for a while, under a couple of names and a couple of different owners. They've kept the sandwich menu mostly intact - the #17 in the title is particularly lovely, on a nice sub roll with turkey, bacon, avacado,...More

When i first moved to Maine, one of the things i missed were real subs. Most places here made what they called "Italians" which were basically a ham and cheese on a hot dog roll with green peppers and canned olives. Metcalfs makes real subs....More

I usually don't eat at Metcalfs, but the other day I did try the Caprese panini, which was delicious. My family loves Metcalfs and always orders their subs. It is always fresh and prepared quickly!
