Solid diner experience. Super clean, friendly and capable staff (mostly college aged), brightly lit, and the food both times Ive visited was delicious. Menu wasn't huge like most diners but the taste and quality is excellent for the breakfast and lunch they offer. My picky daughter loved their pumpkin pancakes!Definitely our new go to for diner food, it has a more upscale feel than rte 40, which I enjoy also ... but that has a more mature crowd and corresponding menu selection, and decor. Now my kids ask for metro diner when we're in the area.

Great service. Fast and friendly. Never have I ever seen a fried chicken Benedict so clearly I pulled the trigger. A LOT of food so if you’re not a big breakfast person share with a friend!

Went to Metro Diner in Middletown De. I had the chicken and waffles with the strawberry butter an it was fabulous!! The portion size is CRAZY 1/2 chicken with waffles that season and fry to perfection. The customer service was friendly and courteous. I will be back to try more of their food.

Even though it was my anniversary. Last minute decision I really enjoy my dinner. Food was good. Sweet rolls and cinnamon butter phenomenal. I have to take another trip just for the rolls

Absolutely delicious, great service. We loved the fall specials but the all day brunch options brought us in.Great waffles and Pancakes, eggs cooked to perfection, phenomenal hash browns. The burger was also outstanding. Everyone happy with their meal, Would change nothing.Good service, too. We will return soon!Kid-friendliness: Had a kids menu but the regular menu was perfect.Parking: Ample parking around the building.


I have been coming here for years and will always come back when I’m in town. This place runs a genuinely good business. They charge fair prices, serve fresh delicious food, and their service is always great. Their Belgian waffles are THE BEST and so is their avocado toast!

Today my twin and I stopped for breakfast at Metro Diner Middletown. Our waitress was the wonderful Shannon. She knew what drinks we like and had it ready for us by the time we sat at our table. She was friendly and very professional. She is one of the best waitresses there and we always ask for her.

While on our drive back to NJ from Maryland, we stopped off the highway in Middletown DE to get gas and grab a meal. The road we got off on had several strip malls with big chain restaurants but we decided to stop at the Metro Diner since we like diner food and it seemed pretty busy, which is usually a good sign! When we arrived, we had to wait about 5-10 minutes before we were seated. The place was pretty lively. Our waitress was really friendly and provided good service throughout the meal. I got the cinnamon bun pancakes with a side of hash browns and my boyfriend ordered the fried chicken eggs benedict with hash browns and an extra side of bacon. The pancakes came with two large cakes and were very yummy. The eggs benedict though was incredible. Their hollandaise sauce was really good. The hash browns hit the spot and the bacon was cooked perfectly. We were very satisfied with our food and decided to get a piece of their bread pudding to go - forget the exact flavor but may have been blueberry lemon - that was also really good. Glad we stopped by for a meal on our trip home.

My husband & I live in Townsend, Delaware. We frequent Metro Diner on Rt 301 in Middletown. Yesterday we had an extra-delightful experience! Our server was Harrison. This young man was so professional yet friendly, efficient, & charming. He made our experience delightful. When asked if he was in school, because he is very young, he mentioned he sees his future in hotel & restaurant management. I'm just an old lady & schoolteacher, but if I were any restaurant or hotel, mark my words, I would scoop him up and give him a scholarship. You won't regret it! In the meantime, we will continue to frequent Metro due to the delicious food and pleasant atmosphere. We will be asking for Harrison while he awaits his bright future.

Was there for my favorite 3 grilled cheese sandwich yesterday and and had Matt C as our server again. He is the absolute best. He is polite and funny and just all around a great server. The food again was delicious as always. But it's Matt that keeps us coming back. See you soon!

I am a New Yorker and in our way back from packing my son from camp we wanted breakfast. We heard great reviews about this place. We drove 45 minutes out of our route to check it out! It did not disappoint! Great food. I had the waffles and chicken. An amazing breakfast! Matt C was our server and what a great service. He even got a smile from my son who was not having a good Morning. His great welcoming hospitality made me give this review 5 stars! We will be back!

I come here every week with a good group of guys to talk and enjoy great food. I have never had a negative experience. Part of it is the food, but another part is having Shannon as our regular waitress every week. She is prompt but relaxed with us and is always available if we need assistance or a refill.Great service, great experience. Reasons we'll keep coming back.

Had breakfast this morning, food was great as well as the service. My server was Shannon and she is awesome. She was quick to greet me once i was seated and had a coffe in my hand within 2 minutes. All my questions about what was good were answered. Food was delivered promptly and my coffee was refilled without asking. Keep this young woman, don't let another restaurant steal her away
