This lively eatery is as much fun, as the food is good. The décor keeps your interest while you decide from a menu, with a variety of taste treats. Mel's Burger is highly recommended, cooked up in many ways, all you can eat fish dinners, and mouth watering desserts, too. The staff is friendly and attentive. The entertainment is unusual... More

Just stopped in on a whim and are we so glad that we did! There was no wait (even though the parking lot was full), as we were seated they took our drink order and within minutes drinks were on the table and our breakfast order was taken. The food was very good, service was excellent. The meal was a... More

The food is always great, especially breakfast. For Dinner they have a killer meatloaf and their ribs are great. The Fort Myers location is where I take the wife for Dinner and Bonita Springs is where I get my breakfast to go.

We had dinner here after a day at the beach. Very welcoming staff, retro diner look, large menu. Fried chicken dinner, Ruben & child's chicken fingers were all delicious. They have drink specials & I enjoyed the Margarita. This is a great place for a family meal. We all agreed that we would love to return.

I have learned that, in fact, breakfast can be screwed up, but not at Mel's! I went there recently and found it to be delightfully low-key -- servers don't rush you. I ordered the veggie omelet with Provolone and it was really delicious. My companion enjoyed his chicken enchiladas with mimosa as well. Wait staff is efficient and attentive without... More
