Explore Hampton Roads

Fueled by the Best Southern Comfort Food in Town

Discover Chesapeake, a beautiful city located on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. It’s just a hop and skip from Virginia Beach and downtown Norfolk, and with so many great things to do you’ll have a hard time deciding where to begin!

Chesapeake is home to more than 22 miles of waterways for watersports and fishing, plus a multitude of parks and trails for hiking, camping and bird watching. In town, check out live music in Chesapeake City Park or an exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art.

The Hampton Roads area is rich in historical sites including Virginia Civil War Trails and the Chesapeake African American Heritage Trail. If you’re in the area in June, the city of Norfolk hosts the free Annual Norfolk Harborfest, the largest, longest-running, free maritime festival in the nation! Chesapeake is also home to many Naval bases where many of our customers here at Metro Diner work or serve.

A few more must-sees:

  • Great Dismal Swamp
  • Northwest River Park
  • Oak Grove Lake Park
  • Greenbrier Country Club
  • Chesapeake City Park
  • Regent University
  • Virginia Beach Waterfront

Searching for things to do in Chesapeake this weekend? Explore the shops just down the street at Greenbriar Mall or play a round of tennis at nearby Greenbriar Park, then head over to brunch at Metro Diner – featuring $3.39 mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, killer Eggs Benedict, or make it a Biscuits & Gravy kind of day.


Chesapeake Means Fun for Kids, too!

Metro Diner has a Kids Menu and Family Meals to Go

Kids love Chesapeake for the indoor playground at FunVille Playground and Café or head outdoors to the shady Fun Forest in Chesapeake City Park. The Children’s Museum of Virginia is nearby, and the Chesapeake Planetarium even offers children’s programs and a chance to look at the stars!

Of course, nothing beats the fun of one’s own kid-sized version of our Fried Chicken & Waffles from the Metro Diner Kids’ Menu, and small fry often can’t say no to kid-pleasing Grilled Cheese or Mac & Cheese. For the kids at heart, satisfy your cravings with a White Meat Chicken Salad, Fish & Chips, Pot Roast or the double-decker Big Mike’s BLT. Enjoy your meal here or get it to go!

Yes, Metro Diner offers breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner to go via pick-up or delivery, and we offer catering, too! Metro Diner can handle your business catering, graduation catering, corporate event catering and even wedding catering. Chicken & Waffles at your party?! Count us in!

The same is true here at Chesapeake Metro Diner, where we assist with charity functions for local churches, donate food to local schools and help keep our firefighters fed at the nearby fire station. We take care of everyone here at Metro Diner and if you’re not from around here, you’ll be welcomed like family just the same.
