This place is very nice and old school looking. Very 50s diner feel. The service was great . But the food was awful. After reading all the reviews of this place I thought it was a no brainer going. I was recommended the baby back ribs from the waitress. These ribs were expensive and very small. The bones were 1/3... More

Living in SW Florida, we get a lot of family visits especially in the winter. I like taking them to Mel's Diner because the food and service is good,and the atmosphere of a 1950's diner appeals to me since I grew up in the 1950s. No one leaves Mel's Diner hungry, The portions are large. My favorite is the chicken... More

Loved stopping here during our stay in Fort Myers so much so that we ate here 3 different times! First time was a busy Friday night for dinner. Had to wait but not for too long. Tara, our waitress, was great - very attentive and super fun. Chicken Ceasar Wrap and Grilled Shrimp, both with fries - very good. Saturday... More

We had dinner one night and breakfast another day. They offer a great mix of traditional diner food and more modern fare. I had the key lime grilled shrimp, served with a lime hollandaise sauce with mixed cut veggies. This was not only delicious, but very affordable at 12.99. Breakfast was a yummy ham, spinach and swiss cheese omelet with... More

This is a cute Fifties type restaurant. It serves great old fashioned malts, but also has fresh local fish and baby back ribs. Our waiter CHAZZ was SUPER. He was very friendly and you could tell he loved his job. We will definitely go back.

My husband and I wanted to come to Mel's Diner in Fort Myers since last year during our visit we really enjoyed the food there. My husband ordered the meat loaf with mashed potatoes, salad and soup. I ordered the chicken, broccoli alfredo. Although the food was good -- it was average at best. The waitress we had was very... More
