Our foursome visits Naples every year for a weekend of golf and, when we do, Mel's Diner is always on the list for breakfast. The spicy Bloody Mary is delicious, and the corned-beef hash is some of the best I've ever had. Others in the group enjoy the chicken fried steak and biscuits and gravy. It's a busy place but...

I had breakfast here on a busy Sunday. I was alone and was able to sit at the bar right away. The food was very good. The staff was nice and I enjoyed my meal.

As a young senior, I was able to enjoy my meal in the atmosphere of the past. Pleasant staff, great food, (ate here twice) and was surprised the restaurant was 17 years old as it looked like a new building. Congrats

This is another place that I should have given a review too a long time again. It is a place whee you will get the most out of your hard earned dollar. No matter if you are going for breakfast, lunch or diner, I have never had a bad meal and I have been here numerous times this past year

Whilst we were not planning to eat here twice out of our 3 night stay, it was very convenient to our hotel, just a walk across the parking lot. The first night, my husband had fish and chips and whilst the fish was good, he wasn't so keen on the batter, felt it wasn't the right type, I had grilled... More

In an area with extremely overpriced restaurants and variable food quality, Mel's delivers consistency and low price with excellent food quality and service. Go there and be happy!

There are two Mels near us, one on Tamiami Trail in North Naples and one in Bonita Springs. The first is a 5 minute drive the 2nd 15 mins away. It's worth the drive! The Bonita Springs one feels and looks fresher and more welcoming, staff are excellent and seem to care and the food is tastier - I know... More
