Great menu selections for any type of appetite, we enjoyed great coffee, eggs cooked just right, corn beef hash, fried potatoes and toast, basic but very good. Wait staff is friendly and they make sure your coffee cup never gets empty. It's an old fashion feeling, the seating, decor, all come together to make it relaxing dining. They serve lunch... More

Not Mel's with Flo saying kiss my grits. More of a family dinning spot. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Daily menu never changes but daily specials are written on a chalk board as you enter.

I was in Ft. Myers on business searching for a decent place to eat that was not formal. Mel's diner "caught my eye". For those of you who like diners, Mel's is your place. I like diners because of the expansive menus. Mel's has an expansive menu. The prices are appropriate and the portions are good. The service was prompt... More

Fun diner with a bunch of unique nik-nak from the 50s- very busy on a Friday night but the serving staff were very great and apologetic about the wait time on some things. Good food and great prices- very yummy milkshake and delicious (least expensive) key lime pie in Florida! :) We visit twice on our trip.

Went for breakfast. My benchmark is Corned Beef Hash. Ordered it up, with 2 over easy eggs. The hash IS homemade and it was excellent. Coffee in those old fashioned heavy mugs. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Make sure to check out the old cars and get your picture with Betty Boop.

Stopped by Mel's on a Saturday morning while furniture shopping (yeah, I know...) The inside is just as interesting as the outside decor. Lots of memoribilia form the 50's, 60's and 70's is quite entertaining. My wife ordered the full 2 egg breakfast plus pancakes, I had the country fried steak breakfast. The coffee came quickly and frequently, never had... More

Lots of choices, cute throwback decor, above average comfort food compared to chain diners. The staff was very personable and attentive and service was good. Typical diner food with good flavor.

I've been there a few times for breakfast & dinner. Prices are great, food is very good. The only problem is that Mel's is so good that there is always a waiting line to get in.
