This is an awesome place to eat! Everything is good and the servings are generous. Be prepared to wait a bit because it is often packed but it is definitely worth the wait.

This place has awesome food and service. You definitely have to try this place at least once. Some of the dishes can be a little expensive but you can get a sandwich for a reasonable price. Breakfast is served all day. I visit this restaurant pretty much every visit to the Jacksonville area between. 3-4 times a year for the... More

This was the second time we visited Jacksonville and we made sure the Metro Diner was on our to do list again. Absolutely love this place. Breakfast is fabulous with so many choices. If you can't find a favorite here, you are hard to please. I wanted one of everything! Food is plentiful and service was great.

Huge portions and great service. We ordered the breakfast pizza, and an egg biscuit dish. Could have fed a small village but somehow ate most of it. The pizza for breakfast concept was great - highly recommend. Very busy so we waited 20 minutes, in the off-season. Definitely a place I would visit again. For our Vegan friend, a shake... More

We decided after celebrating New Year's Eve that we would spend the next morning having brunch at the Metro Diner. We showed up with 20 people unannounced. We do not have to wait very long for a table for the amount of people that we had. Our server's name was Kaley and she was amazing. There was also another woman... More

Excellent upscale for diner food. Gourmet twist on traditional diner fare, especially the daily specials. Great, friendly staff. Highly recommend.

This time in town, I tried the breakfast pie, half portion with Hash browns. It was huge and plenty of food. It arrived quickly. The service was great and friendly. Try the daily specials or unique to Metro dishes. They are so unique and different - totally worth it. Popular place so you may have to wait on a weekend.

This is hands down my favorite place to go for breakfast in Jacksonville! I truly believe they are outstanding. Crabcake Benedict is excellent! Can't wait to come back.. it's become a weekend tradition!
