For a second year in a row, we went with friends for Thanksgiving Dinner and it was excellent. We were lucky to get seated right away. Three of us had the turkey dinner while my wife opted for prime rib ($1 more). Dinner included turkey noodle soup, salad and the usual side dishes of mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, green beans,...

mels - pretty well known diner chain. Greek-style ownership. very effective and pleasant service. food is good, solid diner food. some was very good, some great, some average (chicken soup). reasonable but not astonishing portions. TV's, located on route 951 north of the 75 interchange. Seems to have become a local place for our family to gather.

Despite visiting Naples many times before this was our first visit and won't be our last. Service was excellent, food was well cooked and presented well.

Mel's diner is noted for its good food, family setting and attentive staff. This location is no different. My wife and i stopped in for breakfast after a doctors appointment and again enjoyed Mel's at it best. Highly recommended at any time for a quick and inexpensive meal.

Decided to stop off at Mel's for dinner one evening. We were greeted immediately by a very cheerful lady. Other diners appeared to be local people which to me is always a good sign. There was lots of choice from an extensive menu. I decided to go for the rack of ribs. Unfortunately, they turned out to be rather mediocre.... More

This is one of my Uncle's favorite restaurants, and it's the second time he's brought us for dinner. The service was very friendly, and the ribs were cooked to perfection. A little loud, but it was a Saturday evening and they had a full house. I'll return again when I visit.

Used to love going there few times a week to see our favorite server Steve. He's no longer there and when asked about him, was given a rude response. He was GREAT! Food was still the same ol same ol, and fifty menus are given every visit. Needs a deep cleaning and some more smiles to make it fun again.... More

I know several Mel's Diner Fl East and West, but I was disappointed in that on. Not very attentive service, some not professional but just working in second or third job, food under average for the value.

About what I expected...huge portions...I went for lunch, but I think I would have preferred breakfast there. Service was ok, not super friendly.

We are frequent visitors to Mel's because we love the food and have gotten to know several members of the staff. Every time we have visitors come to town we make sure to visit visit Mel's. Best Key Lime Pie in town! My review only gets a 3 of 5 this time because our last visit ended up not so... More
