Great as always!

You can't go wrong with the fruity waffles. Large menu, lots of great choices. Definitely the best diner around!

Prices are good. Location is nice. Location meaning whether it's in the ghetto, or in a safe suburban area. Although, I grew up in the ghetto, or some variation of it. Anyways, the food wasn't as good as in Orlando, but still, it's pretty damn good to eat here when you're really craving breakfast.

First I ordered the flavored coffee special, and got regular. The waitress noticed the mistake, and brought the kind I ordered, so no big deal. Then came my veggie omelet, it looked and smelled great, but unfortunately had a piece of plastic in it (which I found in my mouth). They were gracious, and offered to bring me another. I... More

Metro Diner is a Jacksonville experience. There are days this is my go-to spot - those days are ones where I want great food and lots of it in a noisy and hectic environment. If you want a quiet business lunch this is not your spot. But if you want fun and a bit of chaos and MAJOR food portions... More

We eat at this place all the time, and never had a bad meal. They will accommodate your needs and are willing to give half orders. We have eaten at everyone and have gotten the same wonderful service.

Visited The Metro diner on the advise of our valet at the Omni Hotel. Had a wonderful selection of Eggs Benedicts. I tried the San Francisco with avacado and tomato. It was great! Hubby had the Lox & bagel he said it was delicious and high quality salmon. The diner seemed to be frequented by a lot of locals which... More

My daughter and I visited on July 26, 2015 for breakfast and were both amazed and very satisfied with our selections. The chicken and waffles with the strawberry butter is out of this world. If you haven't been, get there asap. Will return soon and bringing the crew.

The best breakfast in town by far. A regular stop for us on Saturday mornings. Great variety of selections and everything is great tasting. Plenty of food at a good price. Great atmosphere inside and out. Not a quiet place,but a variety of people. Get there early or expect to wait. Try the fried chicken and waffles. Great customer service.

Enjoyed by the locals, expect a wait. Who cooks breakfast at home anymore. Building more locations all the time. Good food portions, too.

I work alternating weekends and when working a group of coworkers and will have our breakfast at the Metro Diner on Baymeadows Road. We have often had to take leftovers for lunch. I myself prefer the Juevos Rancheros. Finally you will find Good Food, pleasant staff, and more food than you can shake a stick at! Enjoy!
