This place is so old and worn that I could even smell the smoke from years gone by! Some folks do love Melvyn's and for all it used to be, but it's not for me. Sorry. Just being honest.

Melvins is a must see. I have been going for over 20 years. Try and go for live jazz on sundays . Get there early at 4pm to secure a seat. The place is hopping

First of all we walked around the hotel grounds which are in terrible condition and in need of some TLC. Then it was on to dinner. We had dinner reservations for 7:00 and the bar was dead, so instead we ordered drinks at our table. The dining room is cramped and the tables tight. I didn't see anyone under the... More

Iconic Melvyn's did not disappoint. Seated in the grape vine ceilinged porch area, we were offered champagne, fresh croissants, sweet butter and an assortment of fresh fruit to start. A wonderful selection of brunch options were nicely presented on a custom menu card. My lovely wife selected the Norwegian Benedict consisting of smoked salmon, capers, red onion and topped with...

OK if you are over 50, divorced and want to be a player. Here you go. But lately it is a more hip younger crowd - not getting in the way but wanting to be part of the "scene" Women dressed to the nines, men in their Palm Springs Pastels and their loafers. Piano played that has been here for... More

Ok, so not exactly the scene I was expecting, but this place was so much fun. Ron the piano player was incredible, and I swear he never took a break. Must have played for 2 1/2 hours straight. We have dinner in the lounge...while I wouldn't recommend that (the tables are kind of small) the food was excellent.

Our first time at this lovely restaurant and certainly not the last. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left the host and our waiter made our evening a memorable one. The food was wonderful and how nice to enjoy the classic 'silver service'. A perfect evening in a perfect setting, to celebrate our special day. Thank you... More
