Not remembering the name of the diner, it took us a bit of looking to find it again. Having dined here before, it was a must to return. We tried adding another diner to our list of favorites, and definitely put the other one on our no-go list. Mel's Diner is one of the funnest, friendliest, best decorated places I have ever eaten, and the food is plentiful, very tasty and pleasantly priced. The free live music can soothe the soul, or cause a toe-tapping good time. A definitely recommendation from this family.
this is the best restaurant in Branson. The food and prices is outstanding and the waitress and waiters are super talented and real good singers Great entertainment. We will definitely go back. and eat there. We were there everyday to eat when we went in September for a week..
