Went at 200 pm and we were seated immediately. Server was friendly and we received our meal promptly. Meal sizes were ample, more than we could eat and had to get to go boxes. Good all American Diner food with a nostalgic atmosphere.

I had read about this dinner so thought I'd give it a try. It wasn't that crowded but service was slow. OK for burger and fries, good portions, interesting decor. They do have some drink specials. Fun with kids.

This is our go to diner. Large selection, well prepared, and reasonably priced. Cocktails as low as $3. Specials even more reasonable. Not fine dining, just good food and drink.

Good food and service at a fair price. The diner menu is typical diner fare. Decent burgers and a friendly 50s style ambiance

We visited on a weekday about 1000 am walking over from the LaQuinta nearby. It's been 25 years since we last visited Mel's. It was OK. We asked for well done potatoes which we got but 15 minutes after the eggs, sausage, toast, etc had...More

We usually call in for pick up, during peak season, otherwise, seating is usually available fairly quickly. Have not attempted call ahead seating.
