Metropolitan Seafood provides a great assortment of the freshest seafood for miles. Their attention to customer delight is second to none. From blue claw crab claws to catfish with an incredible selection of fresh oysters, broad variety of salmon and assortment gems depending on the season. The fresh seafood is augmented with a variety of prepared foods and take out items including fried calamari, shrimp, etc., as well as homemade salads, lebanese treats, fresh bread, local cheeses (including great mozzarella), and numerous other items that are sure to suit anyone's taste. The staff is exceptionally competent and helpful and makes every individual feel special.

I have been shopping here since Metropolitan Seafood opened about 25 years ago. The staff is knowledgeable and honest. You know where your fish comes from and whether it is farm raised or wild. If someone doesn't know something they will follow-up. It is a most impressive business.Recipes are emailed regularly to clients and the store carries an eclectic assortment of grocery items to go with your fish. The catering is reliable and excellent. In addition, Metropolitan Seafood gives back to the community. You get what you pay for. And in these times, when fish may not be what it is labelled, or old, or just not that great, you know when you buy from this store that they will stand behind anything they sell.

For decades they have had the freshest seafood. Great service. Staff loves their products. It's not a dine in place. Take out fresh fish and cooked plates. The Fish and Chips is amazing! Shellfish prices are a little high but well worth it. Since moving to this larger location from Clinton they are even better prepared for the abundance of orders that occur on traditional fish eating holidays.

Metropolitan has the best fresh seafood for miles around. They are knowledgeable about how to prepare and cook it and often give advice. The price of the fish is high, but it is always worth it. They work hard to please and the service is impeccable. Owners are friendly and remember their frequent clients by name and what they like to eat.
