Great place to meet friends for breakfast. Kind of crowded but that is what makes it so quaint. Service was wonderful and everyone was so friendly. Food was great! Have driven by here a million times ~ finally had opportunity to go. Great decision and I will be back!

Love this place! The wait is a little long but worth it. It's a breakfast/brunch spot. I had the shrimp and grits. It was awesome! Fried grit cakes! First time I've ever seen such a thing. The waitress was very nice and the food came pretty quick.

Great attention to detail. I had one of the daily specials; Spicy chicken Benedict w/spicy chorizo gravy. Yum. Great value for money. Portion was on the larger size.

The Spinach Salad (it was ordered topped w Grilled Chicken) looked delicious and my friend confirmed that is was. The Chicken Pot Pie looked amazing; (he ordered... More

We have eaten breakfast there and the food is consistently good. We have never had a bad meal there and we have brought home leftovers from breakfast and had another breakfast from them. Service has also been good. Several people eat out side; however, I think it is loud due to the traffic noise.

When somebody visits us in Jacksonville, the first place we take them is Metro Diner. I pretty much had everything on the menu and I've never been disappointed.

This is a Diner plain and simple. Had a casual business lunch and good reason why triple D came here. Shellcie was our server and she did a great job taking care of us. Great knowledge of the menu and service. Not a big meatloaf guy but if Guy F recommended it, I had to try it. Fantastic ! Others... More

The Metro Diner does what a diner should do, serve quality, flavorful, and a generous amount of food at an affordable price. What more can I say. I had the Charleston Shrimp and Grits; it was the second time in my life that I had grits and wow were the grit cakes ever tasty. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and... More

Excellent food. Friendly wait staff. Normally have to wait a few minutes for a table but well worth the wait. Fun to sit outside when weather permits.
