A fun, local, diner atmosphere with good "diner" type food at reasonable prices. I had a bowl of chili with cheese and onions and my wife had the chicken noodle soup. Both were generous servings and very tasty. My wife says the soup was definitely homemade, not salty or processed tasting and my chili was spicy but not over done... More

Coming from NY, specifically Long Island, there are diners every few miles. When we moved to the west coast of Florida we surely missed a good quick meal which Long Island diners are noted for.

Best CHEESEBURGERS in the world. Nicest wait staff. Home style cooking at it's best. Go early for the best seating. When a restaurant is this good you are going to have to wait!!!!

The food was delicious for being a diner and it was more then you would think. Prices were alittle high for the atmosphere but worth it. We saw an ad in our local paper advertising 2/$20 meals and decided to head to Mels's. When we arrived our server explained that the deal had already ended. When asked why it was... More

Was seated right away...waitress, Ashley was very nice. Mom enjoyed the ribs, Karen enjoyed her chicken parm and I had prime rib, that I had to send back because it was cold...The wine, price wise, was very reasonable. A nice place with good service and friendly.

Always an easy choice for last minute dinner. We had variety of dinners including fish and chips, salads and burger. All were good and the kids are never disappointed. We enjoy their breakfasts even more.
