One of my favorite breakfast places to go to. The food is wonderful and to my liking. I almost always get waffles or similar, eggs, and bacon.Their strawberry butter is the real star though. Whatever I'm going to eat I'm making sure I get some of it.Staff is always peppy and fun to talk to.Kid-friendliness: We sometimes bring my godson and the times we have the staff is patient with him. He's 4 now and working on learning to order his own food and address people with they talk to him. They are willing to take the extra 30 seconds to wait for him to find his words.

Restaurant was mostly empty. Ordered chicken strips with the waffle and was there 30mins. How does that work? Definitely won’t visit this location
The food was good but the service was great! Eric was my server and he was attentive without being overbearing, funny, and despite being the only one on the floor was amazingly great at making everyone feel covered and visible. He even called me by name because I was wearing my name tag. I got the Bissell breakfast and it was tasty. I will be coming back!
Waitress was awesomeNow we visit Donthan, and Columbus Metro Diner. This was not our first rodeo. We keep coming back because of great service, atmosphere, food. I order the cinnamon roll pancakes, and chicken. Pancakes were good chicken was too salty. They offer to make the chicken over but took entirely too long. Also looked as they need to change the grease as well.I told the manager don't worry about the chicken due to the waiting for the chicken. I was very disappointed. My wife order the veggie omelet not flavorful at all and the turkey sausage tasted as if the sausage was spoiled. Not happy at all. Normally I would give a great rating but disappointed ? 1star.
Jordan was our waitress and she was excellent! She took very good care of us.Chicken and waffles were delicious!

Jennifer, our server, was outstanding! Went above and beyond. I ordered hot chocolate. They were out of milk. She asked someone from the kitchen to go out and get some so that I could get what I wanted. We overheard another table ordered pancakes. She brought out the rest of the tables orders but explained the pancakes were too done. She requested that they remake them. The customer was very appreciative. They were delivered a short time later. Jennifer is certainly an asset! She truly cares about her customers experience!Parking: Plenty of parking

My waitress Ashlee was awesome!! She was very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent!! I will definitely be back!!
Me and my grandparents go in all the time! The food is always delicious and all the employees are always great! We had Jennifer today and she made the whole experience wonderful! She got our orders taken quickly and made sure we always had everything we needed. It was a wonderful experience!
First time visiting, food was good with vegetarian options easy to find. We were seated quickly on a Sunday morning & atmosphere was diverse with nice music playing. Willis was a very nice server!! Will definitely be back.Vegetarian options: You can easily find vegetarian options
Willis was the most enjoyable server one could ever physically imagine. His personable yet professional service made my entire week. If anyone ever gets hungry, this place was literally made for you!!! (Because they’re a restaurant, so they serve food! How exciting right!?)Another thing is he brought our food in under a tenth of the time he stated!!
Shelly and Jeff were both great servers. They were both knowledgeable about there food and the gave me some good ideas for my 1st meal there. Won't be my last. Good food, service and atmosphere.. music was good

The family and I went to the Metro Diner this morning for the first and last time. We were sat but never received service or even asked if we’ve been helped. I went back up to the hostess and let her know after sitting there for 5-10 minutes. We then sat there another 2 minutes and decided to leave. It appeared that no one knew what their sections were and I never saw anyone that looked like a manager. When we walked out the door the hostess nor servers standing at the front tried to stop us or apologize. We will not be going back.
Absolutely love spending time here with my littles! Jennifer is honestly so sweet and takes the best care of us! Mimosa is always on point and those cinnamon roll waffles are almost as good as our favorite server!
Metro Diner has really been a great place to eat and fellowship with friends. We meet every Tuesday for breakfast and has formed a customer/owner: Pete/server: Telesia relationship. The food is always on point and the guys always say the eggs are the best. We're so regular the server Telesia always knows what we want. Great place to eat.
Went for lunch today with my husband and our daughter. There was a wait, but we were seated in the amount of time estimated for a table to be ready (10-20 minutes). The host was very nice and helpful throughout our entire meal. The wait for out food was a difference story. Maybe we had just come during a rushed time, but the wait for food for us and the tables around us, took a while. The portions were good for the price and the food had great flavor. Our server was rarely seen. She never gave us refills and I actually stopped a different server because she never came back to check on us after our food arrived. The blond haired male server I stopped to see if we could get a refill told us "I'm sorry I can't get that for you. I'm busy with my tables." I served tables for 6 years and I would straight up get written up for telling a customer that Im too busy. Walk away, lie, say "I can get your server if you'd like." Say almost anything because "no I'm too busy". Incredibly unprofessional. The host actually ended up getting the drinks for us. So that comment, the lack of service from the wait staff, and the wait for food pretty much guarantee looking for good food elsewhere.Kid-friendliness: Good kids menu. They have highchairs and booster seats available for use.
