Every time we visit jax we have to eat breakfast at the Metro. Great food and spot on service! Everything on the menu is great!

If you're anywhere within 50 miles of Jacksonville, you need to eat here. The breakfast pizza is the bomb.

Had breakfast here recently on a Friday morning and it was a bustling place with great food and service. I had an omelette and has browns and my friend had a chicken biscuit and we were both happy. The waiter was very attentive and offered our water to go, a nice touch in the beach. I would definitely return.

The first time I went I got the French toast and was only so so impressed. However, on my last visit I got the Nutty Waffle and fell in love! Great service. Wait time to get seated can be long, especially Saturday and Sunday.

Came here for the first time and thought it was great. The wait was very long but it was Saturday morning. The food and the staff made up for it. Chicken fried steak, pancakes, etc. All tasty and warm with plenty of coffee and a super nice waitress. We will be back.

There is another Metro Diner in Ponte Vedra, but it is worth it to drive and wait at this Original Metro. Awesome !

Excellent server! Our server claimed to be new, but served like a pro. She had great menu suggestions and keep our drinks refilled. The food was served quickly, was fresh, tasty and hot. We will return!

The service is great - very personable. I was surprised that on a very busy Sunday morning the services was still great - lots of wait staff. Great Breakfasts, fried chicken is very good as are all the other dishes we've tried there.

Thank Sarah B
