Retro Metro is 28 years in the making. After both Chef Tiny and Chef Hana crafted culinary greatness at The Metropolitan Grill in Springfield, they decided to go their own way. Southwest Springfield needed a great steak joint and they were just the power couple to bring it. Retro Metro is a “greatest hits album” of Metropolitan Grill — its legacy. But not only do they honor the greatest hits, they create innovative, new dishes, too. Combine Chef Tiny’s decades of restaurant experience with Chef Hana’s California Culinary Academy training and you’ve got the mashup of the century.

What’s with the menu names? Each dish is named after a member of the Retro family — after all, they’re the most valuable part! Look closely at the menu to see the year that each dish debuted.

Eat! Drink! And have a good time!

    Everything was great except the short ribs ended up being a little bit too salty. Other than that everything we ate was exceptionally good. The bread and dipping sauce hands down my absolute favorite ever in my whole life it was the best. Texture flavor everything about the bread and dipping sauce was exceptional. All of my other food was wonderful with the exception of the meet being too salty but still great flavor and falling off my fork tender. I have a new favorite place to eat now and cant wait to try other dishes.

    The food was really good but afraid your prices are getting too high.
    Retro MetroResponded on July 5, 2024
    Thank you for the Feedback. Food Prices are getting too high we agree! Unfortunately we charge accordingly for the product on our menu. We cannot wait for prices to go down. Tuesday the second we received our new Menu from our printing company and we do have lower steak prices due to the beef market going down for the summer. Hopefully they keep driving down. We release new menu's every season so we can adjust prices to the market. In my 32 years in restaurants I have never seen prices so high. For stand alone local businesses we unfortunately don't have the buying power of large chain restaurants, so we don't get to set our prices. Thank you for spending your hard earned dollars with us and supporting local businesses and families. We appreciate it more than you know!

    I answered Energetic for the noise level but that's because we ate in the bar. It's the atmosphere we prefer. The restaurant side has a much lower noise volume. Everyone here, from the reception desk to the servers to the bartenders to the kitchen crew to the owners, are excellent. Owners Tiny and Hana are the best people we know and the they are present. The staff is phenomenal! The food is top notch, always hot, pleasing to the eyes, and heaven for your taste buds. The portions are huge but you can choose a half order at a lower price. They have ample, easy parking. Private dining is also available. You'll never be disappointed and you'll always look forward to an evening at Retro Metro!

    Did not like the fact that the happy hour 2-6 has been eliminated! It is still on the website and was the reason we reserved for the company.
