Had a pretty good breakfast here. Place was busy, so service was a bit slow, but very efficient. Fair prices and plenty of food. Nostalgic atmosphere.

Mel's Diner is like home cooking away from home. It is just like a Pennsylvania or New Jersey diner. Lots of choices, huge portions, reasonable prices, what's not to like. Lots of "snow birds" there when we were there.

Homey comfort food. Great breakfast. Great rice pudding. Dinners are not gourmet, but good tasting comfort food. Yummy lobster tail Caesar salad. Great prices.

Food was very good. Seemed like everything was prepared on site from scratch. Prices were cheap for Naples. Very extensive menu. Service was great. If you're under the age of 55, you'll probably one of the younger ones there for dinner.

Stopped in when family was visiting us for lunch. This was our first time here and we very much loved the retro diner theme. Our waitress was friendly and prompt. We didn't have a long wait for food to be brought out. Everyone was happy...More
