The atmosphere was fun. Old diner feeling and the jukebox was blaring. Had simple salad but it was fresh and good.

After late hours at The Track, we were worried that we wouldn't find anywhere open to eat. Stumbling across Mel's was a diamond in the rough. The atmosphere was fun and nostalgic, although a little small. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was...well, diner food.

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch after a long hike on 6/26/13 and we were not disappointed.

The atmosphere is great fun with all of the 50's style decorations and all of the employees we encountered were super friendly.

The food was good and about what you would expect at a diner. We had the BLT and the club sandwich. The club was good and my wife said her BLT was about average.

I did think the prices were pretty high. Our bill came out to more than $20, which I think is high for what I listed above. But, you're basically paying for the atmosphere of the old style diner.

It's worth a stop though.

Mel's Diner is one of our favorite places to eat when we visit Pigeon Forge! Love their food, always fresh and just how we would expect it. The service is always friendly and willing to help! The inside is always a wonderful place to relax and get out of the sun on a hot day!!!
