I had a great buffalo chicken wrap for lunch one day and the next I had a wonderful breakfast of eggs bacon and pancakes. This is a good place to meet up with groups or visit with family because the menu features such a large variety of options!

This was our first visit. Not sure I would go back. The decor was cute and definitely geared to the older crowd. The value was good but food was just ok The service was outstanding.

Mel's has a huge breakfast menu and most of what they prepare is competently done and fast. We also went for dinner one night and that wasn't as good as the breakfasts, for example: mashed potatoes had all the potato taste reduced to mush, and on top of that there was a thick gooey gravy which did not go well...

I must say we ate here because I read Judge Judy eats here often, lol! Very popular with the older locals. Most tables were filled by the time we got there at 5:15pm for dinner but we had no wait time. Waitresses look like your typical truck stop diner ladies. Not a slam at all, but if your looking for...

There are some very good values among the menu choices. I wouldn't particularly recommend things like pizza or spaghetti dishes, but the diner standard type dishes are generally quite good for the price, and some of the seafood selections also. I particularly like the key west shrimp, and my wife loves the roast turkey diner. I think the most expensive... More

Only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Service a little slow. But food was good and low cost. Atmosphere kind of like an old dinner.

We have spent Xmas in Naples for more than 10 years but we had never been to Mel's diner. That was a mistake! It's a great place: fifties athmosphere, local people at the bar, great menu selection. We had all you can eat fish and chips: it was delicious: the fish was fresh and white, the batter not to greasy.... More

I love this place. It has something for everyone. This is home cooking at a "joint" that is worth stopping in to. You will find it on 41 in Naples. Two locations I believe.

This Mel's diner belongs in a Happy Days show. It is right out of the 1950's. The food is good diner food and the service is good. The menu of course has a million options. HOWEVER the Mel's over on Collier Blvd, should be cut from the herd. It has slow or non existant staff, is dirty and run down.... More
