I got the Classic hamburger which is one of the cheapest items, and it was OK but nothing special. The service was fine as I got this to go. I would eat there again perhaps but not go out of my way to do so. I think it is overrated here...at least for the standard hamburger that I ordered.

When in Naples we always go to Mel's for breakfast. My husband loves it. Also had lunch and dinner there a few times. Hearty food but good if you enjoy hearty.

My family, friends, and I have dined here many, many times over the years and it has always been a good experience. The food is what you would expect from a "mom and pop" kind of diner and the staff treats us like family. The prices are reasonable, the service is good, and the food will keep you coming back...

This restaurant is 5 minutes from our vacation home and we LOVE IT!! We always go in for breakfast/occasional dinner and the food is always fantastic. The chicken falls off the bone and the burgers are nice and juicy. Maria is a FANTASTIC server. You are always made to feel like family and the food is like a home cooked... More

Mel's is open till 9 pm weekdays, an advantage for those of us who do not get to eat dinner earlier in the day. The entrees are tasty and the service is professional and timely. The menu features a wide variety of choices from appetizers, sandwiches, breakfast, or complete 3 course dinners all day. Our party of 4 enjoyed "kibbitzing"... More

Stopped in for breakfast after Sunday mass, as there were many cars in the parking lot. No problem getting in as we were immediately seated. Extensive breakfast menu available. Country fried steak with Mel's gravy should please many Southern taste buds - as well as fill you up, along with the yummy biscuits. Susie, our server, was delightful, and full... More
