Cute outside but food and service were not good. My husband ordered a grouper sandwich and it was not grouper. I had a patty melt and it was awful. Service was extremely slow.

Have visited this restaurant often and in large parties (we had 20 people!) and they are consistently excellent. The food is delicious and the pricing is wonderful. Want a good meal at a great price with a doggie bag? Mel’s is the place!!!!
