The Metropolitan is a GREAT place to watch a game. The venue is incomparable. You feel like you're on board the Titanic. The screen is massive (Cineplex on McGillivray sized). The atmosphere is decent - though perhaps a little bit cavernous is you like the elbow-to-elbow seating of Tapp's for example. Service is surprisingly good, considering how much mileage the staff has to cover to reach certain tables. The venue can accommodate a group of any size.

All in all, everything but the food is fantastic, and the food itself is okay. It just won't likely knock your socks off. Prices are comparable with Tavern across the street (same ownership group).
Cool, thanks for the info, I'll check it out next time!
