When we are just not sure WHAT we're hungry for, we opt for Mels. Their prices are reasonable (you can get a filet and shrimp for under $20), they have a huge menu that even includes adult beverages, and their wait staff has never disappointed. We've been many times and we'll KEEP going back.

This is a great place for good food, great service, a vast menu, and low prices. We’ve eaten here twice because it’s literally across the road from our hotel. It has a 50’s style decor, and plays a variety of music in the background. There is no outside seating, but a lot of inside tables, chairs & booths. My first meal was a Cobb salad, delicious, but I missed the bacon. My husband had a burger plate & he was not disappointed. For breakfast on another day I had eggs, bacon, fruit and a scone. It was delicious. Loved the scone! My husband had the no carb omelet,and said it was a bit dry. He asked for salsa and they provided it. That seemed to help. There are plenty of places to eat here, but if you need a quick meal at decent prices this could do it. (We did notice a lot of senior diners at both meals).

This use to be your all around American diner with an amazing choice of dishes. We ordered burgers and cole slaw as well as salads and we were disappointed while in the past nothing could have gone wrong with this place. Either they have a new manager or the cooking station is manned by a different party, but we will not return there any more.
Looks now more like your old Dad’s place than a thriving best of class diner. Worst meal for a long while
