Metro Diner The Villages

And Award-Winning Takes on Diner Classics

If you find yourself in The Villages with a craving for the diner favorites you know and love, head to Wedgewood Lane, look for our green awning and come on in! We win awards time and time again for our big, bold takes on diner classics like Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, Charleston Shrimp & Grits, Chicken Pot Pie, Classic Burgers, Fried Chicken & Waffles and so much more! Guy Fieri himself even paid a visit to Metro Diner on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to sample our Iron City Meatloaf. He raved about the “crunchification” of its griddle-seared crust and said, “Diners across the world have to take a lesson from this one.”

Located just minutes from Three Main Squares of The Villages, Metro Diner The Villages is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Fuel up before or after a round of golf or catching the latest blockbuster film at nearby Belview Town Cinema or watching a show at the Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center.

Ask our regulars what makes Metro Diner stand out, and they’ll tell it’s not only the great food, but also the warm atmosphere and incredible service. Our staff is tight-knit and passionate about making guests feel 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 warm welcome.

Whether you come by Metro Diner The Villages to get your day started, or drop in after checking out the sights, know that breakfast all day is always on the menu. Start with a tall glass of sweet tea or a $3.39 mimosa or Bloody Mary (you’re in The Villages, after all!) then dig into a heaping helping of Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, fluffy Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, crisp Belgian Waffles or signature Omelets and Eggs Benedict. Whatever you choose, we’ll make your breakfast dreams come true, all day long!


The Best Place for Family Dining

From Kids Meals to Senior Favorites 

Have family coming in for the weekend? Don’t miss Metro Diner’s Fish Fry Friday! Our wild caught North Atlantic cod is beer-battered, fried to crispy perfection and can be enjoyed two ways: as classic Fish & Chips or a Fried Fish Sandwich served with seasoned fries. You’ll get along swimmingly!

If the kids don’t go for fish fry, we recommend something from the Metro Diner Kids’ Menu like the pint-sized Fried Chicken & Waffles, Chicken Tenders, Mac n’ Cheese, or a li’l stack of silver dollar pancakes. For bigger appetites, try a white meat Chicken Salad Croissant, Philly Cheese Steak, Big Mike’s Double Decker BLT, the Metro Club Sandwich or order a Family Meal to go!

In fact, all our breakfast, lunch or dinner favorites can be ordered to go via contactless pick-up or delivery. Simply order online and leave the rest to us!

Have an event or big meeting coming up? Metro Diner offers business catering, graduation catering, corporate event catering and even wedding catering! Chicken & Waffles poolside? Don’t mind if we do!

Supporting The Villages Community

Sponsorships, Fundraisers and More!

We believe the best way to succeed is to build a strong community that grows right along with us, which is why we’re proud to sponsor The Villages Charter Schools, Lake Weir High, our Local St. Jude’s chapter and the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

We also host a retired military group who come in every morning for breakfast at the bar. Metro Diner is proud to be a gathering place where nobody is a stranger and the company we keep is as good as our food.
