My first visit to Mel's was even better than expected starting out with a huge friendly smile and welcome from Wafa one of the owners . My last visit to an excellent Fish and Chips was to Cape Cod in Cotati while in the Rohnert Park area for a needed trip to Walmart and Costco . Living in Calistoga Mel's is closer and fits in with any trip I make to the Santa Rosa VA on Airport Blvd . Anna arrived as Wafa's helper shortly after opening as well as Claire , obviously a regular and waves , Hello , big smiles and hugs were shared all round . Truly a small friendly family owned business like you don't experience much anymore and a welcome trip back into the past . I will make the trip when I need my Fish and Chips whether I'm going to the VA or not , it's well worth it . Yum , Yum , Yummy says it better than my 5 Star review .

Went to Mel’s today and was surprised at their menu. I was craving the fish and chips and got the #2. One piece of fish, Calamari, and two prawns. I really enjoyed it. The catsup had a little horseradish in it and it added to the fries! Didn’t like the cole slaw. No flavor"maybe add some vinegar?
Small place...only6 seats inside and two tables outside. Perhaps calling in and ordering for pickup is better. Ladies cooking were very friendly. Cooked our food right in front of us.

Stopped by this place by chance when working in the area for lunch, enjoyed the fish and other fried platters. A bit of a wait, and only a couple outside tables, so advise eating early or late.

Working class clientele serving World Class Fish 'n Chips. Reasonably priced and you'll probably be in line with your Plumber or meet one.

Hands down the best fish and chips in the area. Yes, its a whole in the wall, but the fish is fresh, and made right in front of you. No frozen F&C here. Eat here all the time.
