Visited for Saturday brunch as it was near to where we were staying and we wanted to experience an American diner. We were not disappointed. Very busy so we were advised of a 15 minute wait for a table which we used to our advantage...More

7 am before work for breakfast. Surprised at the open kitchen and large dining room. Very pleasant atmosphere. Ordered San Francisco Eggs Benedict (tomato and avocado) which comes with hash browns. Wait staff suggested cheese and onions on the hash browns which turned out great....More

Large portions, good food, decent prices! It was still very busy around 1pm on a Saturday, so the service was a little slow, but if you are looking for solid diner food, this is the place to go!

Waitress was horrible, kept getting orders messed up on all her tables. I had Shepherds pie which was nothing but a bunch of food puréed in a bowl with no taste. Restaurant was not clean, waitresses looked like they just stepped out of a homeless...More

My husband and I had always wanted to try this place so we did today for lunch. We didn't find the menu choices that exciting. Our food was good and service was excellent. But we like other St. Pete restaurants a whole lot more than...More

Decided to try the Metro Diner on this side of the bay after the fantastic brunch we had on Kennedy. It would be impossible to pick a winner between the two. The formula is simple and brings back memories of Diners of a former time....More

The food at the Metro can’t be beat. We have eaten here several times with friends and family. The staff is very friendly and the manager Lori is the best. We have been working our way thru the menu and haven’t had a bad meal....More

We were tired and hungry. The chicken noodle soup and the chili were both good but the absolute best was the grilled 3cheese sandwich. Best ever! We were not asked if we wanted refills on our drinks—and we did want more.

We were craving something better than fast-food and this place was great. Food and service were great (we had brunch, including bloody mary and mimosas). On the second trip (for dinner) it was less than amazing (e.g., hollandaise sauce was broken and eggs overcooked--but they...More
