Yes, I've reviewed this restaurant about 10 times but hubby loves this restaurant. He always says you can get good food, good service and a good price here. He always shows me the tab after dinner. We are stuffed when we leave and spend just over $20 for both of us. If you haven't tried them yet, what are you... More

Went there on a Wednesday morning at 9 AM expecting the place to be dead but it was crowded. We both had waffle and they were freshly made and quick (even though the menu says it may take a while). The service was fast and friendly.

This is a great place to eat and it's very popular, which causes it to also be a little noisy. However, the food is worth the noise. Good for all ages with lots to chose from. Prices are reasonable, service is very good, and the staff are friendly. We love eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner there. There are a lot... More

My husband and I have been to Mel's on several occasions. The service and food has always been very good and resonably priced. We live just a couple miles away and do try to go during off season.
