This is a fairly typical-looking diner. It's situated in a small strip mall. They are open for breakfast and lunch only. It's a bustling place. The waitresses were fast, friendly, and efficient. They have a varied menu. The portions are huge! My husband had the fried fish sandwich. It was about a foot long and probably 4" wide. It would've... More

I've eaten here several times over the years. It seems to me that the menu is getting too far from "great American breakfast." There was one pancake advertised on the menu; and that was a 12-inch, "betcha can't eat it all" deal. There's no denying that the food is well prepared and tastes good. If you're looking for special treats,... More

The eggs Benedict over crab cake are to die for. The price is good. The service is as good. My friend ordered steak with eggs, and it looked nice, juicy and tasty.

We decided to try Metro Diner because it was rated so high on Tripadvisor. I didn't feel the highly rated vibes. I had soup and sandwich which was not so great. The soup was so thick and not tasty. The chicken salad sandwich was on bread that tasted like they went to the grocery store and picked a loaf of... More

After church on Sunday my wife and I enjoyed brunch here. Chicken and waffles are a special dish, especially for the big appetite.

The Baked Italian Hoagie was delicious. The 12 inch Hoagie Bun was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The Italian sauce made the provolone cheese, salami and pepperoni delicious. My husband ate the pound cake French toast and love it as well. It's a diner atmosphere but you can eat outside and enjoy the view if you... More

Metro diner has really good food in huge portions that are good value for the prices - fair prices, good service, usually crowded and noisy but it is people enjoying themselves. Only negative is parking is difficult - true of all or most Metro Diners popping up around Jacksonville.

If you're anywhere within 50 miles of Jacksonville, you need to eat here. The breakfast pizza is the bomb.
