“Good food and friendly, anytime of the day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This was our first time to this Mel's, one of the newer Mel's. We have been to Mel's in Naples and Ft Myers many times over the years and found Mel's to be consistently good and very friendly. If you go for dinner you might want to go early or you might need to wait awhile, but it's worth it. We are back in PA now but next time we are in SW Florida we are sure to go to Mel's.

“Finally good diner food in Florida”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This has become our go to place for a quick and good meal. Excellent value, great service and a good variety. They have a liquor license so you can also get wine or a cocktail. The desserts are also good. This is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. However, you may have to wait for dinner or on a weekend for any meal. But, the wait is not long and it is worth it.
