Are you nostalgic for the bygone days of jukeboxes, leather jackets and rock ‘n’ roll? Take a trip down memory lane with a meal at Mel’s Classic Diner. Located minutes away from our Pigeon Forge condos, Mel’s is a 50’s diner that serves classic American food. Spend a few minutes in Mel’s Classic Diner, and you’ll swear that you’ve time traveled to a real malt shop!


Like any authentic diner, Mel’s serves up breakfast all day. Be sure to come hungry, because these hearty meals aren’t for the faint of stomach. With eggs, grits, hash browns, omelettes, french toast, pancakes, biscuits and more, you can feast in the morning or indulge at dinnertime.


All of Mel’s Famous Burgers are named after icons of the 1950s. Guests can savor Marilyn’s Mushroom Burger or sink their teeth into the Buddy Holly Chili Cheeseburger. These king sized burgers come with your choice of chips, fries or pasta salad.


No diner would be complete without ice cream! Mel’s signature banana split comes with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream, smothered with hot fudge, whipped cream and nuts over a bed of bananas. Guests with a real sweet tooth can upgrade their banana splits to 6 scoops. Mel’s also serves old fashioned malts, root beer floats, sundaes, milkshakes and homemade baked goods.

After a delicious meal at Mel’s Classic Diner, you can relax in one of our Pigeon Forge condos.
