We had "breakfast" for lunch. We had the American omelet and the Bissell breakfast with grits. Everything was delicious! Food came out hot and fresh. The server was on point (Chris). All in all, it was outstanding! We'll be back; I want to try the chicken and waffles.

Stopped in as soon as we got to town from KY and this place was great. Extremely busy we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. The server was wonderful and good just as good.

Food was great but next time we will just get two meals and split with our little ones. The portion sizes were huge and none of us finished our plates. The best thing I have had here is the shrimp and grits.

I enjoyed breakfast. Service was fast and food came out hot. i would have liked toast and hash browns rather than having to choose with one side.

I reviewed this 1 year ago. Having been to all the other Metros, I had never been to the original. I've now been there twice and it's easily my favorite. There is just something different about this one, even though it's the same menu. This one has much less space and is open fewer hours. It's in a neighborhood but... More

A recent visit to J'ville led us to Metro. A great breakfast. Chicken and waffles were the best ever. A short wait well worth the breakfast!

My wife, daughter and I frequented the Metro (where the locals eat) several times during our visit. The food & service were excellent on both occasions. It would take too long to describe what we all had to eat, but I had Eggs Benedict one time & the Chicken Pot Pie once for lunch. Both entrees were cooked perfectly! The... More

This is the original location of Metro dinner. After living in Jacksonville many years I finally had the opportunity to go for lunch. Excellent, wonderful, friendly, and the greatest food! We had the Turkey pot pie, meatloaf, bacon mushroom hamburger, and philly cheese steak....Excellent portions, great service, good prices. Thank you Metro Diner for a wonderful lunch!

Thank Clay J
