Had breakfast here and the service was great. The food was not so good...ordered the Bissell breakfast, but the bacon was thin and greasy, grits were thick and creamy. Pancakes were good though. I told the waiter and manager, but they didn’t see to care.

Everyone was very friendly. Menu had enough variety for all 7 of us. Food was fast and delicious. Small parking lot though.

Quaint neighborhood type of environment. Friendly service. Went in to for a quick bite before travel. Bacon, egg, cheese biscuit was awesome. Perfectly cooked hashbrowns - and plentiful! My husband's corned beef hash and eggs was great as well. A definite go to in Jacksonville.

Good well rounded menu. Pricing is family friendly. Ambitious is all in the name, with black and white checkered tile floors. Friendly staff and service is good especially during rush dinner hour. Location is also convenient. Big portions. Definitely would return again!

I have eaten at the Metro Diner almost a half dozen times and have never been disappointed. You cannot beat the breakfast. The hash browns are to die for, and you cannot go wrong with the biscuits and gravy. For lunch and dinner the meatloaf...More

Extensive menu and the prices are on par with the quality and portions. Service friendly. Food delivered promptly. Small dining room, has a real diner feel. Waffles light as air on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Food prepared just as requested. Would love to...More

We sought this diner out on a trip up I-95 on the basis of Diners Drive-ins & Dives. We tried the Chicken and Waffles which was half a large Belgian waffle along with a half bone-in fried chicken. The chicken was overly salty and would...More

YES, AS LONG AS THEY STAY OPEN. Some of them close after lunch. By far, it is the very best breakfast ever! Try the Creamed Chip Beef, on top of crispy hashbrowns vs bread, or the chicken and waffels... Or, for lunch, the... More
