The portions are nice and large and the food is amazing! The atmosphere is lovely and inviting. They offer amazing deals on their menu. Their cheesecake is out of this world and the service is wonderful!

One reviewer says you won't like going here anymore because prices have risen and service has declined. While some of that may be partly true, it isn't the death knoll that review implies. Yes, there have been some waitstaff changes and the new staff isn't as knowledgeable as the former staff was. And, prices have gone up - but so... More

If you used to like going to the Metro, you won't anymore! They have raised their menu prices and all of the best items on the specials menu have been taken out. I've been a regular customer for years, eating there 4 or 5 times a week. Tonight I complained about half of my $17 lamb chops being fat to... More

After nearly 40 years, a long time shipmate and I decided to finally get together. We kind of chose a location that was between our respective residences. We picked the Metro Diner in Brooklawn N J. The first reason was it was on a very accessible road, it was a well known diner, the menu was varied enough for any... More

I'm always surprised when I join my friend for dinner at this place near her house. The size of the place is massive, the staff is always super friendly, and the menu takes some time to get through.

Metro remains the same. Good service and reasonably good food. Prices are typical of a dinner. I was with a large group and the service was great.

Been here before last year. Good parking convenient location. Quick seating friendly wait staff. Place is clean, well maintained and quiet. Ordered chicken pasta soup served promptly and hot ; it was tasty. Ordered burger with cheese and mushrooms extra crisp fries. Place was not crowded. Entree was a little slow for 1:45 pm. Burger is delicious.

Been here twice, once for dinner and once after show snack. Found the food OK but the prices were very high. Didn't help that both times we came in the host made us wait to be seated while he finished what he was doing. One time a personal conversation and once adding dinner special to the menus.Will not be back.
