“Our favourite place in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Great food, great service, great prices! we hardly ever go anywhere else because we know we'll get better food at better prices here. The fries and gravy are always a side, because they are the best!

“Melanie Pringles has excellent food with good pricing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

For those of you whom have not yet tried Melanie Pringles, you should put this restaurant on your list of must try restaurants for 2013.
The portions are a generous size and delicious. My family have tried many choices on their menu. My husbands favourite is their meatloaf, I on the other hand, love the tilapia. Our grown children love the burgers, served with hand cut fries. Oh my goodness, if you do get the chance to go, order the fries. Not only is the food excellent quality, (tastes like home cooking made from scratch food) but, this restaurant is spotless. The wash rooms included, you can tell they are checked several times a day to ensure they are pristine. The décor in this restaurant is very nostalgic complete with a cool car on the wall. Fun stuff for the little ones to look at while they wait for their meal. There is also an adult/bar area is you are there to watch a sports event, have a beer and munch on their amazing nachos. This restaurant has everything!
Thank you Melanie Pringles for being in our Town.

“Excellent food, Waitress needs a lesson in customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Hadn't been to Melanie Pringles in years, had a coupon and decided to give it another try. I love the variety of food, however, the service was poor and the waitress had the audacity to argue with me about my order.

“DWD! Done With this Diner!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Great start! But didn't last long as our server was M.I.A. Then the food was K.I.A! Over all I will not visit restaurant again as it isn't busy and would hate to see it super busy. They need more bodies in here slinging the food out maybe our server wouldn't be in the weeds!
