Metro Diner opened its third Georgia location in Macon Tuesday, July 25, 2017 on Northside Drive. The diner hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Macon Chamber of Commerce after months of renovating the former Capital City Bank building.

The Metro Diner on 3710 Northside Drive closed its doors for good this week.

The chain restaurant based in Jacksonville, Florida, opened the Macon location in July 2017. The Metro Diner was known for serving “traditional diner food with a twist” at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A crowd favorite was the chicken and waffles with strawberry butter.

The Metro Diner website removed the Macon location from their online list. The other Georgia locations are in Augusta, Columbus and Savannah.

In an email to The Telegraph, Crafton Bryant, Director of Marketing, said it was “difficult decision” to close the Macon location.

“This is strictly a business decision and is not a reflection of our team’s dedication to serving the community,” Bryant said. “We understand that closing our location in Macon will affect the lives of our team members and we are helping them with this transition including severance packages. “

When the north Macon business opened, Laura McMaster, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Macon Chamber of Commerce said people we’re happy to see it come to Macon.

“They’re well known all over the state of Georgia, especially in Atlanta and Augusta, so we’re glad to have a Metro Diner here in town,” McMaster said.
