Great diner ... Decorated with pictures and music of the fifties and sixties. Daily specials. We had the spare ribs that where to die for especially since it was a whole rack. They now have cocktails like Long Island ice tea and martinis at reasonable prices. Friendly staff and quick service make it a great place to eat.

One the few restaurants opened during Thanksgiving. So glad that they were opened. Place was very busy and the crew work so hard to give customers a great service especially on a busy holiday. Food was great! Went with Key Lime pie instead of the usually Thanksgiving pie and it was a good choice. Serving portion was good. Would definitely... More

When visiting Naples to see my parents, we always eat breakfast at Mel's. Good home style breakfast. Fish dinner is also very good and plentiful.

Very good value for your money. The food portions were good and the food tasted great. All you can eat fish was a good choice for $10.

Had dinner at Mel's this week. Food was average, as was the service. This is my wife's choice of eatery, not mine. She had the Turkey Dinner, which was a huge portion of quality meat served on a bland home made stuffing, with mashed potato and vegetables. A moist and a tasty meal. I had the Country Fried Stake. It... More

Nice 50's atmosphere, clean, friendly service. Had a variety of foods ordered at our table and was able to taste them all. Taste was great, would go back just to try more off menu.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way up to Fort Myers from Naples. Nice 50's style atmosphere. Food was very good with ample portions. Fast, friendly service and very reasonable prices. Wouldn't hesitate to stop again.

We were driving back to Naples looking for a quick lunch and came across Mels. Shown to a table immediately and were offered drinks by our server which came very quickly. Together with warm biscuits which were good. I had the soup/sandwich combo and both the cup of noodle soup and the tuna sandwich were very good quality. My wife... More
