Business Lunch Review: Metro Diner

Food Quality: 4
Service: 5
Business Meeting: 4
Value: 5

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5

If you go out to eat regularly, you may have noticed that many restaurants offer inconsistent food quality and service. But then, there are those eateries that diners can rely on for delicious meals and fast, friendly service. For me, Metro Diner has always been one of those eateries.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and its menu options include waffles, omelets, burgers, and seafood. One thing I like about Metro Diner is that, unlike some restaurants, it offers an extensive menu. I enjoy having several meal options rather than just a few.

My wife, Rebecca, and I visited Metro Diner at about 7:30 p.m., so there weren’t many other customers in the restaurant. We were seated promptly, and our server greeted us and took our drink orders immediately.

We never knew the restaurant served alcohol, but when Rebecca discovered cocktails on the menu, we both decided to try one. I ordered a mimosa, and she got a bloody Mary, which was served quickly and tasted great.

Rebecca and I decided to order breakfast dishes, which are served all day. I ordered the bacon, egg, & cheese croissant with a side of grits, which wasn’t the healthiest meal I’ve eaten, but it was delicious. She ordered biscuits & gravy, which was served with two eggs and hashbrowns. Rebecca received so much food, she couldn’t finish it all, but she said it was delicious.

I think Metro Diner would be a great place to host a business meeting because of its size and seating options. When I worked at Georgia Military College several years ago, I attended an admissions department meeting there. The restaurant was crowded at the time, but we had no trouble hearing one another.

It’s also a great value with cocktails costing only $4.99, a fraction of what other restaurants charge. My meal cost $8.99, which is equal to what I would have paid at The Brunch House in downtown Augusta. Rebecca’s meal was only $11.99. The Brunch House doesn’t serve biscuits & gravy, but it offers a similar meal called the Rise & Shine Platter for the same price.

Rebecca and I are visiting St. Augustine at the end of the month, and she told me there’s a Metro Diner there. We may have to visit that location and enjoy another great meal.
