We decided to head out for a quick dinner and my sister had mentioned Mel's Diner so we thought, why not. This location was about 15 minutes from our location. We arrived around 4:45 p.m. and asked to sit at the bar until our booth was available. The restaurant is decorated in 50's style, music and all and is a... More

Great place for a reasonably priced meal. We had a wonderful server who was very efficient. My husband had the ribs and I had grilled shrimp. Both meals were excellent and the portions large. The key lime pie was a huge slice - plenty for us to share - and under $3! We will be back!

A great, fun experience and a firm family favourite. It's hard to beat... More

Met family at Mel's. The menu is diverse and everyone found something to satisfy their hunger. Good menu you for our young grandsons. We had everything from breakfast, burgers and sandwiches. Mel's is very economical and decent food.

The menu is huge and has a little bit of everything! We've eaten there quite a few times and have never had a bad meal or waiter. The prices range from $6 -$17 averaging $12 a meal. If you're in the area it's definitely a must!

This is the go to place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You cannot go wrong with any. The biscuits are a must and my favorite is the tuna melt.

We both had the salad topped with grilled grouper, more than enough to eat. Great service as the restaurant was 90% filled. Very clean, nice family place

The place was packed, but we got seated fairly quick. Great food, large selection of dishes. Wonderful turkey salad. The staff was friendly and sufficient. Would gladly have dinner here again!

I didn't know what to expect from this place. Waiting was quite long as it was jan. 1.st but athmosphere was nice. Food was just what i needed. I took fried pickels( first time) and foot long chili dog, great! Those little piece of bisquites they guve with butter are awsome!!
