About Metro Diner Restaurants

Everyone loves a good diner. It’s the place where you can have breakfast for dinner and dinner for breakfast, claim “your seat,” and always find a familiar face.

At Metro Diner, we think you should have all that, and a whole lot more.

Since opening in 1992 in Jacksonville, Florida, Metro Diner was known as the place for breakfast. With the addition of Master Chef Mark Davoli and his family, Metro Diner began to reimagine old diner classics and turn them into new diner favorites. Signature dishes like our Fried Chicken and Waffles served with sweet and spicy syrup and house-made strawberry butter, or our award-winning Iron City Meatloaf, topped savory gravy and paired with creamy mashed potatoes and green beans, feel right at home on Metro Diners’ bold and innovative menu — making it the place for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.

So just how standout is our Menu? Enough to make Guy Fieri sit up, take notice and exclaim, “Diners across the world have to take a lesson from this one.” when he paid us a little visit for an episode of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”

While our craveable, must-have-again-and-again food is a draw, we know it’s not just about the eats — it’s about the way you’re treated. So a warm welcome accompanies every hot cup of coffee, mimosa or cold beer. And our service doesn’t stop at the front door. Because we’re committed to being your neighborhood restaurant, we’re passionate about being a good neighbor and actively support the communities we’re in through volunteer work, sponsorships and partnerships.

So come as you are, eat what you love, linger and laugh as long as you’d like. In return, we promise to always bring something special to the table.
