The food is fantastic. It's like having a homemade meal, including having huge portions giving you more than your money's worth. And the quaint 70's like decor and layout just adds to its charm. Go. Eat. Now.

Mel's has great décor. Memorabilia from the 60's can be found throughout the diner. Very affordable specials were being offered. I bet this place gets packed during the peak travel months. The place was busy on a Sunday morning; however, the service was able to keep up with the pace. Great place for breakfast.

Typical greasy-spoon diner that I'd only recommend to those looking for honest, unpretentious food. Hit the spot the day after one too many red wines. I had a burger which was decent and filled the spot but the fries were poor. Servers are pleasant and polite. Thank you.

Great Service. The portions are very large! I had Salmon with sweet potato fries & steamed veggies and my hubby had a buffalo chicken sandwich. We both took food home We will definitely go back might split something next time.

Vacationing in Naples and want to take a break from all the top restaurants and their prices, go where the " Naple's Snow birds frequent and the snow birds who are now full time residents. Great for breakfast, and lunch. They offer a daily weekly dinner special that is a touch of home cooking. Take -out is also a good... More

Watch out! Come very very hungry. So we decided to try this place after seeing reviews for their pancakes. The place was much nicer that I anticipated and set up (obviously) like a diner but it's one of the nicer diners I've ever been in. Staff was friendly and prompt with filling drinks etc. The portions are large and very... More

Old fashioned diner or luncheonette. Extensive menu, if you want it it's most likely on the menu. Food is great diner food. An american classic diner not your typical New Jersey roadside diner. Loaded with great memorabilia.
