Went for a late morning breakfast with my wife and my 2 cousins. After a short wait, we were seated and our waitress was phenomenal. She gave great personalized service. The food came out pretty quick, it was prepared exactly as expected, and delicious. This is one place that has the formula correct!

My wife and I visited Mel's Diner on the last day of our two-week vacation and we wish we had discovered it when we first arrived in Naples. We loved everything about this place -- the menu selections, the low prices, the home-cooked food and the friendly staff. The next time we visit Naples we will make this our primary... More

We were visiting friends in Naples and they brought us to Mel's for dinner. When we walked in, our senses were overwhelmed with Valentine's Day chachka. It was everywhere and it was comical.

Ate here one afternoon for a late lunch. Service was good, as was the food. I had a clam chowder that was thinner than what I am used to but, it was very flavorful. I would recommend this place to friends.

This is a good standby in several areas of Florida. The food is nice and consistent, service is pretty good too! It didn't seem as clean and upbeat as in the past, but still a good place.

Our guests told us that you cannot stay in Naples unless you visit one of the five Mel's Diners in the area. Go a bit early though since the line up starts growing after 5PM. Unbelievable menu choices all at 1950 prices. Service was great and delicious.

Stopped in with my wife Wednesday evening around 9:00 p.m.....Mel's had everything from a complete menu of breakfast offerings to a dozen or more dinners and desserts.It's a diner with surprisingly great food!

I wanted something light, and ordered a bowl of chicken noodle soup. Very good and filling and tasted homemade. Love it!
