Service was great. The food was excellent. Hubby got Prime Rib. There is an amazing kids menu. All you can eat fish came with salad or soup, cole slaw and fries. The water does not have chlorine in it....Thats a plus.

Mel’s is a great place to go, as the menu is huge, with something for everybody. The prices are reasonable, and the service is quick. The theme is of a ‘60’s diner, and they carry it off well. In season, there is almost always a...More
