I can honestly say that the food, is good, fresh, and plentiful. The choices on the menu from breakfast, lunch and dinner are more than enough for you to take 5 minutes to make a decision and whatever you choose you will not be disappointed. The décor is 1950's.

We had to stay in the area of North Fort Myers, Fl. while awaiting closing on a house we purchased. We didn't find much that suited our fancy in this area but happened to come across Mel's Diner and decided to stop in.

We stopped by to have breakfast because it was right next to our hotel. We were seated immediately, and our hostess was able to accommodate us for the breakfast menu, even though we arrived ten minutes before breakfast ended. The food came out very fast and it was extremely delicious. French toast there is heaven on earth!

I Don't eat at dinners much, but was pleasantly surprised. I did go back a second time. Don't be afraid to order some of the fancier things on the menu.

We were very pleased with this diner, located on 41 hwy. We had the famous fish sandwich and like I say everyone has their own taste but this was fabulous, and a lot of it.

Having lived most of my life in NYC and CT, I was excited to see a diner in Fort Myers. Unfortunately they didn't quite suite what it was we were looking for. Has anyone in Florida ever heard of sauerkraut?

This place has a great menu with wonderful dinners that will remind you of home cooking. The grouper sandwich is delicious and a Florida special.
