“Fine atmosphere”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

No, reserving a table is not possible. And we can live with that. So you are in the waiting line, as Zorro or Sinatra, until your name is called out. Quick, efficient and all in the fiftys style. Good, solid food and everything very reasonably priced. No wonder it’s packed here. Wel worth waiting a few minutes for.

“Would Definitely Go Back!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We loved Mel's Diner. Great menu; excellent service; and food was terrific - tastey, fresh and large serving sizes. The menu had so many choices it was difficult to select. Fabulous milk shakes. Great décor!

“Great nostalgic place”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Excellent local chain of diners. Even though they were very busy on Sun. @ 9:30am, we were seated immediately. Parking is a little problem. Food is very good worthy of a visit.

“Fantastic Restaurant”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Be sure to check out this Diner when you are in Ft. Myers. This is the original one and there are a few additions by them since this one came into being a long, long time ago. Checkout counter front is a "classic" car. A neat concept. Be sure to try their well known "Mile High Pie" and save room for it because it is really huge. The food is great! Be sure to ask where this one is located and don't leave town without indulging yourself!

What more can be said? Busy Saturday morning but got right in. Pleasant service and plenty to choose from on the menu. Would definitely go back.
