I always find a good meal and Mel's. Prices are always fair too. I try a different meal each time I go there, well almost every time. The servers are always at your table within minutes to take you order.

This restaurant almost got 5 stars as my husband and son raved so much about the baby back ribs! A very big hit with us for family meals. Lots of choice and food was good and very good value. Nothing fancy but exactly what you expect from a diner.

We have eaten at Mel's in Ft. Myers and in Cape Coral and found them to always be very consistent with good friendly service, a diverse menu and always good deals and great food. Pretty much you all around American Diner.

Mel's is a small chain of restaurants in SW Florida. Each time we have gone, it has been for breakfast. Place is always clean, service is friendly and attentive. Food comes out quickly, hot and as we ordered. Large menu for breakfast and they will even poach eggs which a lot of places won't do. For consistent, good, clean and... More

We figured this place was good based on the packed parking lot. The inside of the diner was very clean and had a nice atmosphere, but didn't really feel like a "diner". I had the stuffed pepper special and my husband had a steak sandwich. Both were okay taste wise, but nothing special. The portions were absolutely huge! I literally... More

Wow what a business.Went there for breakfast and it was super. The staff was there to greet us and take us to a table, and had a minute to make us feel at home. The food was outstanding. Everyone had a job and they were right on top of things. Spotless and a must visit.

Have to get here early as it fills up fast. Very easy to get too without having to drive through a lot of traffic. Plenty on the menu & all reasonably priced. Good quality food for the price we paid & the atmosphere is always great as is the service.
