Dinner atmosphere playing the oldies but with a varied menu. I had prime rib. Wife had a salad. Friendly older staff. Clean and reasonably priced. Good food, good value.

Fun place, friendly staff, good service. Family friendly. Omelet great, burgers fair, skip the heart healthy pizza. Reasonable prices, $50 for lunch for 4. Nice menu selections.

This restaurant closes early for a diner. Around 9pm - 9:30pm. We seemed to be there around closing both nights we were in Naples. The dinner food was good. I liked my belt buster sandwich.

Mel's is consistant, food is very good especially for the price. All kinds of choices yet still good at all. Very nostalgic for those that remember the birth of rock n roller.

Delicious pancakes, bacon and eggs for some ridiculous price like $5. That's a special, and other menu items aren't quite that cheap, but this is a great value. We took a key lime pie to go ($16) and it satisfied everybody's craving.

Thanks so much to Mel's for our excellent food, service and making our son's 13th birthday really special. The baby back ribs were a firm favourite! Cooked to perfection. The salmon blt sandwich was also very tasty. Our server, Dolores, was amazing..so accomodating and efficient. However all the staff are brilliant and go out of their way to please.

Usually, our meals at Mel's was wonderful! We stopped after church for lunch and each had an omelet and they were just ok! Guess we will stick to their lunch and dinner entrees in the future!
