This is another place that I should have given a review too a long time again. It is a place whee you will get the most out of your hard earned dollar. No matter if you are going for breakfast, lunch or diner, I have never had a bad meal and I have been here numerous times this past year

Whilst we were not planning to eat here twice out of our 3 night stay, it was very convenient to our hotel, just a walk across the parking lot. The first night, my husband had fish and chips and whilst the fish was good, he wasn't so keen on the batter, felt it wasn't the right type, I had grilled... More

In an area with extremely overpriced restaurants and variable food quality, Mel's delivers consistency and low price with excellent food quality and service. Go there and be happy!

There are two Mels near us, one on Tamiami Trail in North Naples and one in Bonita Springs. The first is a 5 minute drive the 2nd 15 mins away. It's worth the drive! The Bonita Springs one feels and looks fresher and more welcoming, staff are excellent and seem to care and the food is tastier - I know... More

Stepping into Mels Diner is like stepping back in to the 1950s with its neon lights and 50s furniture & decor. Warmly greated by very friendly staff we were shown to a booth, wide selection of food & drinks available, & all very reasonably priced. Food not the best I've ever tasted but all well cooked and of good quality.... More

Went for a light Sunday evening dinner. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Discovered that they offer $3 drinks all day long; Had two very tasty Bloody Mary's. The service was very attentive as well. Highly recommended.

Accommodations made for our no dairy, no gluten diet. We had eggs, sausage, southwestern omelette, whereas our friends has Belgian waffles , which looked delicious. A good time. There is usually a waiting line, but... More
