Metro Diner, Port Charlotte, FL

Restaurant Serving Comfort Food Classics and Breakfast All Day

If you’re hungry for savory, homestyle comfort food in Port Charlotte, look no further than Metro Diner! When the West Villages Sun stopped in, they raved, “everything’s made from scratch, right before diners’ eyes, in an open kitchen that’s always immaculate.” In the restaurant or to-go, guests enjoy must-try signature items like Biscuits & Sausage Gravy and our famous Iron City Meatloaf (as featured on Guy Fieri’s Diner, Drive-ins and Dives).

Ask our regulars what they can’t get enough of, and they’ll undoubtedly recommend our Fried Chicken & Waffles with sweet strawberry butter. And it’s no wonder— the crunch of crisp, juicy chicken combined with a pillowy Belgian Waffle, topped with strawberry butter and our signature spicy syrup. This dish is so popular it has its own holiday!

Located on Tamiami Trail, just minutes from Port Charlotte Town Center and Charlotte Technical College, Metro Diner Port Charlotte is the perfect place to fuel up before or after attending a Tampa Bay Rays Spring Training game at nearby Charlotte Sports Park.

It’s not just the incredible location or food that makes Metro Diner Port Charlotte special. We pride ourselves on making our guests a part of the Metro Diner family the moment they step through the door. So, whether you’re visiting for the first time or are a faithful regular, you’ll be greeted with a fresh pot of coffee and a friendly welcome every time!

Charming Port Charlotte

And the Best Breakfast in Town

And that’s just the start of what Port Charlotte has to offer! Check out these other delightful destinations:

  • Ollie’s Pond Park
  • Centennial Park
  • Kiwanis Park
  • Port Charlotte Mall
  • Spring Lake Park
  • Escape Port Charlotte
  • Silver Lining Charters

Before or after your adventures, head over to Metro Diner Port Charlotte where you can devour breakfast all day! You can’t go wrong with the classic comfort of our Breakfast Burger stacked high with hashbrowns and hollandaise or the Bissell Breakfast, our signature breakfast platter featuring 2 eggs any style, bacon, toast, hash browns, and a short stack of pancakes. Other popular menu items include Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Eggs Benedict, Steak & Scramble Bowl, Belgian Waffle, and Avocado Toast. Breakfast bliss, all day long!
