Spent the evening at the Omni hotel after seeing The Dave Matthews Band in Jacksonville, FL. Upon departure we were starving and the sweet lady at the front desk at the Omni mentioned Metro Diner. We entered the restaurant around 11am on a Tuesday and it was slammed. But they had one table left and we took it. I sat... More

We initially went to Metro Diner for lunch because we'd found it on "Triple D". Very good, the meatloaf featured on the show was yummy; and my husband had the multi-layered Pittsburgh sandwich. Very filling, so much that we didn't need much dinner that night...and also so good that we decided to return for breakfast the next morning. Breakfast was... More

If you have a chance to visit this local diner it is a must. Even though it has a very casual atmosphere the food is anything but usual. The menu is totally different and the food is excellent. The portions are huge that will force you to take a doggie bag home. A reservation is a must even for lunch.... More

We heard a lot about this diner and decided to try it for lunch. We visited the location on Roosevelt Blvd. and had a very short wait, maybe 10 minutes. I had a Philly Steak sandwich that was made with ribeye - excellent. My husband had crab cakes and it was loaded with crab meat. He was very pleased. Service... More

We had heard about this place from our son. He always went to the beach location ,but we went to the San Marco location. We did have to wait for a table, but not more than 20 min. It was a very casual and friendly atmosphere. I had the chicken and waffles which were delicious and large enough to take... More

Really great food and service. Lots of choices on the menu of standard American food. The prices are mostly reasonable but a few things seem out of line (my wife got a bagel with everything that was 12 bucks. Seriously?). It's always clean and the service is fast. Be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes to get in, especially... More

I recommend the chicken and waffles, the shrimp & grits, or the egg white omelets. The service is very nice; treat them well. I sat outside on a Sunday morning and the street was quiet, but I would recommend sitting inside so you don't breath in car fumes while you eat. You have to get there before 9:30a to get... More
