We have eaten here a couple of times since visiting Ft Myers, FL and have enjoyed it. It is clean, has good food and the staff is friendly and efficient ... will go again (many times).

Wow, this place alone would make me want to be a Floridian!!!! Great decor, FANTABULOUS staff!!!! And the food was fantastic too!!!! I cannot say enough how I wish they were in AL so my breakfast club could frequent them every weekend. I would have had all my meals here if it had worked out for me too.

Mel's has been around forever with their home type comfort food and huge pies. Whenever I need a fix of meatloaf or liver, we head there and are never disappointed. I never want to fix either at home and for $10 it is better to go to Mel's! The decor is very retro, and the Fort Myers location is really... More

It was Friday night, and the place was bustling with activity. I was seated immediately and the service was excellent. During my meal, two different managers stopped to ask if everything was all right. I ordered a Friday special -- salmon with soup and salad. Because I chose sweet potato fries instead of a sweet potato, I was charged 99... More

Airline folks used to have acronymns for competing airlines. We called SABENA "Such A Bad Experience...Never Again". That's fitting for our experience at Mel's. Not sure how they earned 4 1/2 stars............but, we thought it was poor. The decor is cute, and that earned it the two points. The food was bad, and the service mediocre. Food, completely tasteless............and, rather... More

Six of us went to Mel's on 41 a few nites ago for dinner. As always, the food was fabulous! The variety on Mel's menu can be daunting, but they definitely have something for everyone there. Everyone in our party just loved their selection, and walked away satisfied and full! We enjoy going there for it's upbeat atmosphere. The service... More

My husband loved the prices first and food second. Drinks very reasonable also. Reminded us of days when dating. Was crowded but service right on. Portions large and very good, especially the soups. Rice pudding ok, but not real cream. Would go again or try different location as they have other locations in area.
