I found this restaurant loud, disorganized and hardly deserving rave reviews. Food and service are adequate but not outstanding. There are a number of better breakfast venues in the Jacksonville Beach-Ponte Vedra area.

Stopped twice on a recent weekend getaway. The crabcake benedict was very good, preferred the home fries over the hashbrowns, did try both. Close to the beach.

Our group of six plus two babies waited around 45 minutes on a busy Sunday morning. It was well worth the wait. The wait staff was accommodating to our needs. Everyone was happy with their menu choices. The chicken and waffles and the omelets were outstanding. Although the place was busy we did not feel rushed. This is a great... More

This place was delicious. I ordered the French toast special and I got all this!! Our waiter was so polite and helpful. The service was amazing. The wait was fast even though there was a lot of people. They have outdoor seating.

The food is fresh and prepared well. portions are large so to go boxes are the usual. Sometimes the wait is long,but, once you take your first bite you forget about anything... More

Whenever we are in Jacksonville, the family always looks forward to Sunday breakfast at Metro Diner! Eggs Benedict, pound cake French toast, cinnamon rolls pancakes are delicious! After ordering, food arrives very quickly to the table. Friendly staff!

We came here for lunch after reading a newspaper article claiming the on the top ten for burgers in the city. This restaurant is easy to see from 3rd street. It is in the corner of the shopping center. There is outside seating that is also a covered area. The outside is well kept. The inside has all floor space... More
