As a meet science student I'm pretty picky about my cuts of meat, the way it's cooked, the overall texture, and the juiciness. I have yet to have a bad piece of meat at Mel's. It's has never been dry or under seasoned. They have a huge menu selection, and some interesting things on the menu such as fried banana... More

The appearance was deceiving. Moving from a larger city, I was taken back by the ambience. Unlike that of the Western Sirloin, where I have yet to get a good steak, the rib eye was very juicy and tender. I have never had a tough steak from Mel's. The fried green beans are the absolute best. The only steakhouse I... More

My husband and I were driving home from North Alabama and noticed the restaurant attached to the stockyard and decided to give it a try.

The fried food app was huge. The fried bell pepper was interesting in taste. The mushrooms and fried... More

Talk about being surprised. We went here on a whim 2 months ago and have been back 4 times since. The steak is by far the best in the area, tender and cooked right. Far better than all the chains and in my opinion better than the swanky steakhouses in Huntsville and Birmingham. But don't go there expecting any ambiance... More

This place seems like a very family orientated place! A friend invited me to town for a benefit dinner this steakhouse was holding for a local young boy, and even tho the place was packed to the gills, the good was great & the servers were awesome!! I'll definitely go back when I'm that way again! :)

Lemon-pepper catfish is great here, and hamburger steak is also! A good salad bar and other items too!

I always get the grilled chicken or the hamburger steak. Great salad bar as well. Located at the stockyard!
