Reviewed 2 July 2014

I had lunch (Elvis Country Club with French Fries) last week at Mel's Diner and was nicely surprised by the yummy food, great service and very affordable prices! I wish we had a diner like this at home!

“Great food, Great Service!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

You will not be disappointed in Mel's Diner. If you are, then I would never get along with you at all.

Delicious food served by servers with sass. The atmosphere is right out of an old tv show. We WILL stop again this year!

We had breakfast there twice, and one late night banana split, very good! You have to try this place at least once, very friendly place!

“Super Diner”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Mel's Diner is a landmark in Pigeon Forge. We have been coming for years to experience a relaxed atmosphere with great diner food. The server staff are real pros and check on your table regularly . Just something about Mel's that gives you a great "throw back" experience great for the whole family. The food is "diner"..why else would ya go ? But prepared well and plenty. You can literally have a meal off many of the appetizers.. Mel is a great host and all his servers make ya feel at home. This place is great, especially after a late show to get some comfort food before heading back to the cabin. I highly recommend their banana split unless 5# of desert may give you nightmares. A great family place with decent pricing and absolutely great diner food.

“Good Food!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The service was great and the food was good....however it is very small close quarters. Felt like we were crammed up a bit, but would definitely go back.
