Never disappointed here - delicious breakfasts and lunches- best coffee in town. Fair pricing. Friendly staff. Clean. We go here all the time when we're in the area as snowbirds

Mel's Diner has been the stalwart of old time dining breakfast, lunch & dinner in south west Florida and we have been going there for over 5-yrs now. Excellent menu choices, service and....pricing too. Décor is old time 1950's, like dinners used to be.

Decent food. Great service. Open late. The hotel behind it is a little shady though. Location is convenient.

Friendly and quick wait staff. The food was very good and was a good portion for the price. Cool old 60's diner.

This place had pretty good food and really fast service. Tanya made sure we were well taken care of the entire time, including getting to know us and where we were from. Strongly recommend the new funnel cake fries! I felt for a 50s diner (or what I took as a 50s diner) it could have used some more atmosphere... More

Visited Mels in Fort Meyers and were warmly welcomed by Felecia who was a fantastic server. We were torn when we looked at the menus - so much choice and it all sounded so yummy. Felicia gave us some extra time to peruse the menu. Finally we made our choices - I had the roast Turkey dinner which came with... More

This place is a local favorite and has been for years. The breakfast menu is awesome, the lunch menu is full of American favorites and the Mile High Pie--well, that is an anytime favorite with the kids.

Did you ever have a sister that said, "If you're in Fort Myers, you just have to go to Mel's Diner?" It was the best recommendation I ever got from her. We had the Millionaire's Salad, which consists of a generous salad and two 4-ounce lobster tails at a ridiculously reasonable price. Delicious! Jackie was our excellent server and she... More
