We love to ask locals where to eat, and Metropolis came up. Located in a strip mall with very little commerce, there was no waiting. The space is very cool, with a great bar, and interesting, artistic ceiling fans. My husband had "the best martini...More

Girls weekend well spent. Painting at Local Color and then walk across the street to Metropolis for drinks and tapas. The bartender was amazing, very knowledgeable and a great mixologist! The asparagus soup with crab (seasonal) was the best thing I ate the entire weekend....More

My family and I have been dining at Metropolis for 10 years and it only keeps getting better. Service is always excellent and the tapas are thoughtful and delicious. Try the fresh strawberry martini or the passion fruit margarita!

A trip to the corolla -duck area is complete without a dinner and a drink at Metropolis. It's tapas style and there are daily specials.

We had the most surprising dinner. The asparagus soup was amazing, the mushroom risotto perfect & crab cakes were light, fluffy and delicious. The strawberry martini, with fresh local strawberries, was refreshing. Meeting and talking to the owner was a bonus.

So it's a cold, windy evening in March. Its Sunday. And this beach town is deserted. We hold little hope of finding any place open other than McDonalds ... and even that is 20 miles away. Then we stumble on Metropolis, but are a little...More
