outstanding customer service. The dining area is noisy but considering every table was filled with hungry diners, noise was expected. Families as well as couple enjoyed meals that were delicious and large. Waffles seemed to be the best selection.

I started going to the Metro over 20 years ago at their first location in Jacksonville. Now having one the Beaches is like icing on the cake. The food is always excellent cooked how you like it. Look at their specials you can't go wrong.

Since moving to Texas, I always crave the Metro Diner upon immediate landing for a visit home. Their breakfast is consistently delicious and they're always trying new things, while keeping your favorites on the menu. This time, I annihilated their Crab Cake Benedict. You can't go wrong with anything you order here and the atmosphere is awesome. They have such... More

So many great food options, on different days I tried the corned beef hash with poached eggs and cheese grits, the Bissel Breakfast, and the Country Benedicts. Everything was great. Kristy is the best waitress on the planet and she takes good care of her customers. Love this place. There is something for everyone and it is a good mixture... More

I have only had dinner but portions are hugh and everything is very fresh. Loved the quesadillas - big enough for two people or lunch the next day! Good service.

We stopped her for breakfast on a Sunday, mid-morning. The wait was about 30 minutes but well worth it. I had the crab cakes Benedict and it was wonderful. My husband had the special. The food came quickly and was hot and delicious. Would go here again and again.

I had a delicious good old-fashioned southern breakfast at the Metro diner. It was my first time here and I ordered the chicken and waffles with strawberry butter. The plate is a half a chicken fried with a large Belgian waffle topped with powdered sugar and strawberry butter. They bring out hot sauce and maple syrup as accompaniments. I also... More
