We had a five minute wait. We were helped right away. Our breakfast was delicious. Great service too. We will definitely be coming back when were in Naples.

Wonderful and low key atmosphere. We had breakfast and it was perfect! Our server was fun and friendly. Mel's is what you expect from a diner, great food, great service and lots of charm.

I had hopes for a real diner meal and left disappointed. I ordered liver. I asked them to give me extra veggies instead of the starch. There was only one serving of veggies which was just as well since they were canned or maybe frozen. Are fresh vegetables too much to ask for? The meal came with soup & salad.... More

I have been here a couple of times over the last three years. The food was solid, but the order was messed up a bit. They are always busy and the food we got was good, but it was incomplete and we had to make several follow up requests to get it right. Just made it frustrating. I don't think... More

My family and I visited this place again on our trip to Naples and our experience has constantly been great. We visited this place on Friday morning and even though the place was packed service and attention to customer was first class. I ordered pancakes and 2 eggs with bacon and coffee and my wife ordered the same. Food was... More

For the last 3 years was our "go to" breakfast place. Last 3 visits poor service and meals were marginal. Ordered corned beef hash with 2 eggs and spuds and needed a search warrant to find the corned beef hash. Asked for runny poached eggs came out hard. Will not visit again

We ate there with our kids that are 8 and 10. We ordered a kid's cheeseburger, after my 10 year old ate a third of it we discovered it was red/ pink in the middle. We were very concerned as this can be very unhealthy/ dangerous especially for kids. It took awhile to get the waitress' attention and when she... More

Tons of food for fabulous prices. I got my St. Patrick's Day feast of corned beef and cabbage and I had half leftover for another meal. Soup or salad with every meal. Looking forward to our return.
