We went here on a Saturday evening with a group of seven adults and two kids. We arrived 30 minutes early and waited for a table (which was fine), and when we were seated, they put us in two booths (which seat 4 people comfortably) across from each other. They didn't bother to tell us first that they wouldn't be... More

Went with a group of 16. Mel's handled the group very professionally. Service, as usual was great. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. Happy Hour specials are always enticing. For good value, service and food, you can't beat Mel's.

My wife and I had breakfast here. It is basic diner style and food. This place is your pit stop for quick, basic sustenance (nothing gourmet, if that's what you're looking for). The service is pleasant and quick enough. The food is average in portions, quality, taste, and price. The decor of the diner is the 50's and 60's, with... More

Its kind of a 50's style diner but the food is very very good. Service was excellent. This Mels is much better than the one in Golden Gate I think. Much cleaner look and the staff is more friendly.

You are in a fifties style diner, very clean and affordable. Features dreamy comfort foods with country style portions. All meals come with soup, salad, veggies small biscuits. Service is very friendly and prompt. When your in the mood to cheat a little on the diet, craving home cooking, this is the place. And, they serve wine.

I love the 50s diner feel. The food is good and the service is always great. The manager made my kids feel special and gave them each a "yum yum" card for a free sundae every time they come.

For someone who's not a big breakfast fan, this place worked out well. They had a quesadilla on the menu, which was good. It had egg in it. The place was somewhat busy. The waiter was attentive. My friend enjoyed her breakfast and appreciated the choice in eggs Benedict options. The menu wasn't too fancy, but it had some nice,... More

We really enjoyed our experience at Mel's. It was our first time there and we weren't sure what to expect other than it was a retro type atmosphere. Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised. I had the meatloaf dinner special and my wife had the cantina chicken dinner and the food was great. Those dinners included a brownie delight... More
