This is the standard venue for our Sunday morning choir - and most of the group have memorized the menu. Our regular server, Jen, is outstanding! We usually come with a group of nearly 20 in season, and take up a good portion of the back area of the restaurant. The food is good, with ample portions, but it is not easy for the kitchen to get out 20 meals together, and sometimes the wait is too long. That is really the only downside.
During the week, they have some very good specials like lobster and stuffed peppers, that are well-priced and generously portioned - and it's not as crowded.
I think what makes Mel's in Golden Gate stand out from the rest is the friendly and accommodating service. Everyone from the manager to the bus staff really care about making the customer happy. There is no substitute for that.
