We hadn't been to Mel's Diner in quite a while and stopped by for a late breakfast. I ordered the Biscuits and Eggs with Sausage Gravy which was very good . My wife had the Eggs Benedict that was the best she has ever had. The eggs were perfectly poached with a huge slice of real ham, not puny Canadian... More

We love Mel's breakfast. The screwdrivers are made with fresh OJ and the Bloody Mary are tasty too. We had the biscuits and gravy which we shared. It had 2 big biscuits with lots of thickly creamy gravy filled with sausage bits in it. My husband had the "cakes and eggs" which were pancakes. He chose the buckwheat which were... More

Four of us went there for lunch on Thanksgiving. Menu said meal came with rice pilaf, but food came with mashed potatoes. No rice option. Green beans and corn lukewarm at Best. Turkey noodle soup had no turkey in what we received and very salty. Grouper and was not hot, just barely warm. Service was friendly and tried to help

This place has a BIG breakfast at a good price. NOT A BIG PRICE! Old fashion comfort food that is what this place gives you. You won't be sorry if you try it.

I was surprised about their breakfast menu as I could find different things like the average. Tasted good. We also have been here for lunch and dinner. We never were disappointed. It's solid restaurant where I feel welcomed all the time. That's why we come back once a month.

Mel's has a big variety so everyone can find something. The waitress was nice and attentive despite being busy. I got the chilli which was good but nothing special. I also got a vanilla milkshake that was good but again average. Overall a good dining experience, definitely worth a try.

I stayed at the hotel next door while on business. I ate at this diner twice and the food was good, old fashioned, fattening diner food. The portions were large enough for me to take half for my lunch the next day. The staff and the restaurant need a good cleaning. They are remodeling so it looks like that may... More
