I love it when we stop here unexpectedly and get take-out. The fish is so fresh and delicious. I also order fish for several holidays and have never been disappointed. Metropolitan Seafood will always be my go-to fish market!

I would not consider this a restaurant but certainly the freshest fish, best seafood and fish takeout meals, and greatest service around, Loyal customers since 2001, and we now travel 40 minutes for the quality that only Metro offers! Frank and Amy T.

There is no patio. It is not an actual restaurant with seating and waitstaff, but you can order food for take-out. I've never seen a dog in the store.
