The fries were awesome, but their burgers have a little too much meat. If they reduced the meat by 25% it’d be perfect.

I recently had an event at The Met for a book signing (Rock Bottom, Tennessee) and the attention to detail in planning was beyond my expections. Liz called several times about details and then even helped me promote the event. As always, the tastiness of the food was exceptional and the wait staff top notch.

Great Attention to Detail for an event
I had a book signing for my debut novel at The Met and the attention to detail was extraordinary. Liz helped me determine the right room, the right way to set up food and drink, helped me promote the event on their social media, and really walked me through every step. This type of customer service is remarkable. Not to mention, the ... read more

We arrived early and were seated immediately. The whole restaurant was full as we left so 5:45 turned out to be a good arrival time. The appetizers were excellent. Everybody enjoyed their entrees and the service was attentive. Drinks were kept full and plates were cleared as needed. Would definitely return based on this visit.

On a business trip to Ohio, we took a lunch stop here as one of my colleagues saw The Met online on a search. When we walked in, this place looked very big. Options on the menu were quite good.

We were headed north on 75 and pulled into Lima for a quick dinner. The Met was a fabulous find!

A must try when in Lima! For lunch the Reuben sandwich and Met fries were fantastic. The Shrimp and baguettes for appetizer was absolutely amazing. You will want extra baguettes to soak up all the sauce. The waitress and staff wrre great. For sure will be back next time we hit town.

Love the food and never had a bad/ disrespectful server. The drinks are made good and fresh. The atmosphere is amazing. As for the bad things I could say their cream brulee isn't very good.

With a few years in between, the second time was just as good as the first. Good atmosphere with great food and drinks! Brussel bites were delicious as an appetizer. Met Tacos and smoked pastrami reuben were delicious. The seasoned fries were good at first but tasted like excessive salt after a few bites.
