The outside of the building sure looked promising; just like an old time general store. The inside, however, was awfully sparse. Very little was on the shelves, and what their was looked picked over. I am guessing that they were ending their season and allowing their inventory to dwindle. About the most interesting thing inside was the 2 minute loop... More

Went on Friday night for the show with Pappy and Jr Jr. Great music, funny banter, all around wonderful people. Very impressed how they honored the veterans at the end on the show. Stop by and get your $3 coupon for the show. We will definitely go see again.

We always enjoy visiting Mellon's while vacationing in Mountain View. The staff is always warm and welcoming. If you're lucky, you might even run in to one of the local musicians...like JC Bonds.

So many cool trinkets, toys, and snacks from the past! Loved the atmosphere and enjoyed visiting with the owners. Saw a live bluegrass show there, too!

This place is full of memories and giggles. It lets you step back in time. I loved browsing the store. They are closed on Wednesday though.

This store has lots of character. Sure do miss the ever smiling and friendly Mr. Mellon with new owners. Needs more merchandise available for customers. A lot of standing around looking for more to catch my eye.

We stopped in during our visit to Mountain View. The building is beautiful and decorated with some neat items. The store was just okay. Not anything grand. They do have a music room and when we drove back by at concert time, the parking area was full of cars

We included a trip to Mellon's after reading reviews I felt like I had to see it for myself. I'm really glad that I did. There's lots of old things to see, plenty of cool stuff you can purchase and if you're as old as dirt like me, then this place will take you back to your childhood. There's a... More

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