Very disappointing

There's really just nothing special about this store. I was disappointed. Cracker Barrel has more atmosphere.

It seems to be a really cool step back in time. It was closed on Wednesday when we came through but open every other day. Excited to come back and look around maybe catch some comedy or music

Nice place to stop for a cold drink and country souvenirs. The drink boxes remind me of the childhood summers I spent at my great-grandparents country store. The owner was very friendly and chatted with us about the area.

So inviting on the outside, but so disappointing on the inside. Mostly overpriced touristy trinkets and gadgets. Not at all what I was expecting.

This place has the potential to be awesome, it just isn't there yet. It looks great, but it needs to have more specialty nostalgia items.

We used to come here to look at the unusual musical instruments. But they no longer have these. The store now just carries the usual tourist trinkets.But you can often find someone performing on stage in the back room. So it's not a bad place to set a spell and listen.

Our family has stopped at Mellon's over the years. Maybe it's because we were there during the off season, but it seemed a little under stocked and disorganized. There wasn't as much neat stuff to look at anymore. I will give them the benefit of the doubt because my kids love the old fashioned candy and drink cases.

On our way back into Mountain View from a visit to Blanchard Springs Cavern and the accompanying recreational area we stopped in to Mellon's Country Store. It is a very typical gift shop in a touristy area, loaded with candy, souvenirs, toys, etc. The difference was the very congenial man who was in charge of things when we arrived. I... More
