Mel's Diner, Bonita Springs, is a popular spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During the winter season it is frequented by many snowbirds. All the meals are delicious, and the prices are very reasonable. It is a fun place, because it is decorated in '50's diner decor. I recently had a grilled grouper dinner which included salad, cheese biscuits, grouper,... More

It was just OK..but it was a diner and we went for a late dinner. The service was great. Our waitress was very funny and was very attentive I would go back and maybe just have some desserts and coffee.

Perfect! The French toast was incredible! The hash browns ok coffee ok, but the French toast and pancakes make it a worth while stop. Typical diner atmosphere.

Mel's Diner is nostalgic and a fun place to eat at. Great ambience. The prices are reasonable. The hamburgers and fries were ok, the milkshake was very good, and the key lime pie was delicious.

We love this Mel's for the food. Especially the 11.99 three course dinner deal on Fridays and Saturdays. So good. The prime rib is alway tender and the potatoes are always creamy good. Our favorite soup is the broccoli cheddar on Saturdays. And i crave the key lime pie always! Also my boyfriend always suggests the ribs! Did breakfast once... More

We visited this restaurant twice in one week, for breakfast and lunch. The diner atmosphere is great, with music and booths reminiscent of the 50s. For our first visit, breakfast, the scrambled eggs, hash browns, and black coffee were delicious. The young man who served us was friendly and sweet. We returned for lunch two days later. Our server, Stephanie,... More

Just had the breakfast quesadilla . Three eggs with salsa, sour cream, chicken breast, peppers and I add spinach . Yum. For a hearty appetite or take half home. The only thing I do not like is they use styrofoam for take out so ask for foil.

Mel's Diner has good food which is reasonably priced but usually there is a long wait to be seated during tourist Season. While waiting orders are taken for drinks and one can meet very interesting people and you are given a very creative name to answer to when called A fun place to go!

I've visited this restaurant on two different occasions while visiting Bonita. It's like stepping back in time. It keeps true to the theme and is clean. The staff are friendly and efficient. The menu is extensive and sometimes hard to choose but between both visit, the meals my husband and I have gotten have been very, very good. He loves... More
