This is definitely the place to go if you are in Naples (right on US-41). Me and my wife were on a one week vacation there and stopped by for dinner at Mel's Diner after a recommendation from a local. We were not disappointed. Surrounded by a nice décor, a warm atmosphere, and listening to the good times music of... More

The place is average. It's a retro-looking diner. Don't come here expecting gourmet food or cutting-edge innovation. The staff are friendly enough. The food is average. The prices are a bit high for diner fare. I have tried the eggs benedict here - good; waffles - good; and the biscuits and gravy - good.

11.95 for a warm wilted salad, fried shrimp the size of a quarter,ribs dry and tasteless. This is a dirty disgusting restaurant. Will never return.

Shades of yesteryear. From the multi-hued carpeting, to the ugly patterned booths, to the acoustical ceiling tiles, to the wall prints of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, to the smudges on the entry door, this place reeks of the 50's. Food is average, served by competent waitresses. The only nod to the 21st Century are the prices - $9.50 for... More

Food was as you'd expect from a US diner. My burger was a tad dry, the chilli was good, the salmon club was again ok. Menu vast Service pretty good and very kid friendly Really good value if you want something quick and easy after a day on the beach

There aren't many east coast diners like this one that is located south of New Jersey. Every ingredient in the hearty meals they serve is fresh in this blast from the past diner. The prices are outrageously reasonable and the service is warm and friendly. Well be back when next we're in Naples.

Country fried steak was awesome. Huge portions with sausage gravy. They closed Mel's diner in my area so I enjoy going when in Naples. Cheap alternative. Staff was very pleasant

Retro music, Great food, clean, a good value for your money, waitresses a hoot. Serves wine! What more could you ask for!

Went to Mel's Diner in Naples because it was near our hotel and looked pretty good. The decor is so interesting - 50's/60's. I got the lobster tart - very tasty. The accompanying mashed potatoes were very good. My fiancé got the pork chop and said it was too dry, overdone, as were the mixed veggies. He probably should have... More
