Our party of 6 received excellent service at this bustling diner. There were a few issues with food coming out not as it was (special) ordered, which is understandable given the busyness of the day, though it caused a delay in our food coming out for several of us. However, our server was visible... read more

Metro Diner has a vast menu with something sure to please every picky eater. If you sit up at the counter you can see the employees working at a quick pace to prepare your food. The portions are generous and taste great.

Went today for lunch with 12 family members ranging in age from 4-55! All were thrilled with their meals. Try the Pittsburgh sandwich. It is Huge and delicious! The fried chicken is not to be missed either. My niece raved about the mashed potatoes and meat loaf. Honestly, everything was great. The service was also very good - friendly and... More

A staple in Jacksonville. Chicken And Waffles is all I can say. The service is great and make sure you get there early as you might have to wait in line

I have eaten here multiple times. I love eating breakfast here. The chicken and waffles are to die for, the chicken is always juicy (not greasy) and the waffle melts in your mouth. It comes with a strawberry butter. The portions are gigantic and they give you 4 large pieces of chicken. I have also had several other menu items,... More

Arrived around 9:30 AM for breakfast. The diner was busy but we were seated immediately. Our server was friendly and courteous, drinks were served quickly and our order taken. After a minimal wait we got our food and I was very surprised. My biscuits and gravy arrived in a large shallow 12" bowl and it came with two eggs and... More

Not the best only because you really just go to Metro Diner for breakfast (I know they do great sandwiches and lunches). Do they ever do breakfasts though! Yes there will be lines outside. Yes it will be busy. That should be a hint. They make the best eggs benedict in town - the eggs are always perfectly poached, the... More

Everything I've tried on Metro Diner's menu has been great! Breakfast is wonderful, but lunch is to die for! Everything from the salads, sandwiches and entrees is delicious. They are always busy and it gets pretty noisy at times, but always a great meal.
