Discover South Tampa
And the Best Brunch You’ve Ever Had!
Known for its small town feel and big city amenities, South Tampa has so much to discover – from picturesque historic neighborhoods to picnic-perfect green spaces, family-friendly event venues and beyond, including:
Searching for things to do in Tampa this weekend? Explore the shops just down the street at Westshore Plaza or International Mall, then head over to brunch at Metro Diner – featuring mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, killer Eggs Benedict, or make it a Biscuits & Gravy kind of day. If you’re lucky, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Super Bowl LV Champions, may have a home game at Raymond James Stadium, less than 3 miles from the diner – Go Bucs!
The Best Place for Family Dining
From Kids Meals to Senior Favorites
So, the family is in town for the weekend. Three words: Fish Fry Friday! Metro Diner’s family dinners could not be easier, or more fun! If your small fry doesn’t go for fish fry, we recommend something on our Kid’s Menu – like the kid-sized Fried Chicken & Waffles, topped with sweet strawberry butter and powdered sugar.
Depending on what weekend your group visits, you may be able to catch some famous family-friendly Tampa activities like the Gasparilla Parade and Pirate Fest, the Florida State Fair, Tampa Pride, Santa Fest, or the Winter Village. Plus, there’s always the beach. Wade into the warm water of Ben T Davis Beach or cross one of our bridges for a short drive to the beaches of St. Pete and Clearwater.
Whether your plans include a parade, a picnic, the beach, or a football game, be sure to bring your family in for Breakfast all day, our famous fried chicken, or a giant burger! Or grab a Family Meal to-go and take Metro with you! If your crew wants breakfast for dinner or dinner at breakfast, no worries! We’ve got something for everyone.

Business Lunches, Catered Events
After a long morning of meetings, Metro Diner has the perfect mid-day reset. Once you dig into the golden crust of our Chicken Pot Pie or indulge in the creamy delight of the guest-favorite Charleston Shrimp & Grits, the day’s troubles will melt away.
No time for your group to leave the office? Hosting a holiday event or birthday party? Have no fear, Metro Diner caters! We also offer our diner classics to-go.
