I am a former employee of this establishment. I worked here for almost a year and would NOT recommend it to anyone.

Atmosphere - Terrible!! Though theres plenty of seating and room for bigger parties (10-30people) the place is repulsive, lighting is dim and irritating due to tacky decor and 2 tone brown based painting.

Food/Liquor: The burgers, sandwiches, and salads are good. As for everything else its just plain SAD. Working there for 11 months I've tried damn near everything on their menu so take my word for it when i say the food is mediocre and bland. As for the liquor, depending on the bartender, particularly Nick or Matt, will guarantee you a stiff drink and are both very friendly and attentive. But for the atmosphere and lower class appeal the drink are entirely overpriced.

Service: This restaurant has a very small group of individuals who have worked there for a long period of time. They alone are the only employees who will provide decent service. Due to the lack of financial income from being employed here they have a high turn-over rate and in 11 short months, I myself trained at least 5 different servers. So this high turnover brings out the worst of the worst. The servers are ignorant and unknowledged of the menu, liquor, and general hospitality!

Please do not mistake my honesty for bitterness towards a past employer. I have utmost respect for the owners and would never talk foul of them individually. They just need to be educated on visuals for a better atmosphere appeal and hire a good cook and let him/her do their own thing to improve the food quality.

We had stopped going to Mel's about 2 years ago due to the attitudes and slowly climbing lunch prices. Today we decided to try it===mistake!! My wife had a pulled pork sandwich which had an "off" taste, and my reuben was so drenched in russian dressing it was sickening. The "chef" "cook" whatever, should be ashamed of him/herself. Even the homeless would not eat here.
Bye Bye Mel's

This is your typical American food bar and grille. The burgers and fries are delicious and probably one of the best things to get. The bar does get pretty packed on game nights.

I think one of the best things to get here is the classes hamburger and fries. I've visited a few times and have yet to be disappointed with the food. I only suggest going on a slow night because it does seem to get pretty tight when it's busy. Other than that, delicious food that's affordable.

Good food, but just like any other chain restaurant. Nice atmosphere and good service. Not too busy, so never really a wait. Has a bar. Good burgers and friendly people.
