I was so happy to be able to dine outdoors again! This is definitely my favorite brunch spot in Monterey.
I can not complain about this breakfast experience at all. I love a good food experience. The chicken and waffles were out of this world delicious and satisfying. The patio was great and our service was awesome.
Tasty American food, and swift service. Outdoor dining was cozy and seemed safe
A simply outstanding restaurant from the warm hospitality, the ambience to the excellent food and drink! A local gem...and a must visit for anyone going to Monterey! Just superb!
Great outdoor seating. Wonderful employees and delicious food.
Wonderful brunch with outdoor seating again! Delicious food, reliable service, amazing mimosas!
Some of the best outdoor seating in Monterey, tucked away off the Main Street of Alvarado the food here is SO GOOD!
It was so much fun! They are so considerate and sweet. The food was BOMB as well. I’m definitely going back.
Our server was really nice, the bottom mimosas were so delightful
Eating out during Covid is just an ordeal. It is worth it, but I'm not sure you really actually enjoy it... you kind of overcome the obstacles and you are just so glad to be out and doing something that it is fun. The food was fine, the service fine, nothing fantastic or memorable... but, for us, we have to be careful, due to our work, to not get sick so we follow all the rules... this was a risk for us, but being cooped up became just something that required a break. I thank the folks at Melville's for a nice break for us and for doing their best. We had a nice time.
I go to Melville Tavern frequently and I always have an amazing experience. Their brunch is my favorite, but also they have really great pizzas and other dinner entrees.
The food was delicious and well worth the reasonable price we paid! Unfortunately the outdoor seating isn't ideal in inclement weather...but the servers were mindful of setting up heaters, umbrellas, etc. and the yummy dinner made up for the cold.
Great brunch, and Lilly was an excellent server and kept our mimosas bottomless!
Just feel at home here. One of our Peninsula favorites
I knew the Original Owner Before He Sold It. The only Food I Order was The Ribs. So After a year, I thought I Try it from New Owners. The First Time I Get the Pulled Pork sandwich That Was Delicious. then I go Agin And Get The Tavern Burger. I Bite Into It Expecting The Caramelized Onion to give Flavor They Were Not Cooked Enough. The meat had No Flavor either. I did not Tell My Server I Just Will Not Order The Tavern Burger. I will Try something Else Soon
Had to eat outside cause of Covid. Food got cold in a hurry. Had fish and chips. Not bad. Not enough Cole slaw. Service was good, server was very friendly.
Food was delicious! Would definitely recommend!
Our reservation was honored and we had a choice of seating. Our server was excellent. Over the top kind and helpful. The food was very good. We shared a wood fired pizza and shrimp scampi, which were both delicious. The seating is kind of in a parking lot/the street, which feels very 2020 to me.
Great food and great service .
Accommodates all ages and preferences.
Super friendly! Great food and service if you want to be a little ways away from the main downtown area! Tables spread out nicely too!
Two of us had the fish, both pieces were over cooked. The salads were okay. Too much cheese on the pizza’s.
Great American food. Standout here though was the service. Our waitress was perfect and owner even came by twice to make sure all was well.
As always, Mellville’s food and service was exceptional. The dining experience felt safe in the wonderful courtyard outside the restaurant. Also, they do an excellent job on take-out orders. They now how to pack food so sauces, juices don’t run together or cause buns/bread to go soggy and crispy food remains crispy.
Excellent food and service! Our top 3 faves = any burger, fish and chips, tavern pizza. For brunch = blistered jalapeño fries (sub sweet potato fries. Goes excellent with the spicyness!!), chicken and waffles, and bottomless mimosas!
They are able to maximize their outdoor space to accommodate a good amount of people. Suggest making reservations, small or large group. Not only at Melville but all restaurants. Also, be nice . . . Restaurants are doing their best to accommodate customers while keeping their employees and guests safe. We've seen people get mad at the hosts, servers, and managers/owners because when seats are full, they aren't immediately able to accommodate large parties with such short/no notice.
Our waiter made excellent recommendations...the food and staff were awesome!!
Great staff! Definitely COVID practicing which is very much appreciated plus Can’t beat unlimited mimosas 😀
We had a delicious brunch which we are planning to return to.
Good food and service, good as you could get for COVID-19 outdoor seating.
Service was great. Food was tasty and fresh. Enjoyable patio dining.
My wife had the best gluten free pizza of her life...so thank you!
Went for Sunday brunch. Staff was very careful with following COVID protocols for cleaning, distancing, and masks. Wait person was friendly and attentive, food was good!
Brunch was excellent. Food was great and the service was wonderful. We will come back.
The food was very delicious, the service was friendly and attentive, and the outdoor dining seemed very safe.
We love Melville and the staff there!! Totally recommend!
The staff was courteous and professional. The seating outside was lovely. They even accommodated our early arrival with grace and ease.
We had a 6pm reservation but decided to head over early to see if they had any availability. Thankfully they were able to get us right in and we were a little curious as to how it would be because it was empty and there was only one other table there. However, within 30 mins, the place was packed. There was only one server but she was great... she was very friendly and attentive despite having to run around to all the other tables. Place seemed like more of a local spot. Food was great, we were all really happy with everything we got (apps: potato skins and artichoke hearts / entrees: lamb burger, spaghetti, and pepperoni and mushroom pizza).
Great location if you want to avoid the crowdedness that is Cannery Row. This was off the beaten path, but not so far away that you couldn't get to the trendy areas with shops and such. Spacious outdoor dining, excellent wait-staff, and kid friendly. Food was delicious and they offered our toddler markers (vice crayons) b/c they're reuseable and washable during COVID; super-smart way to save cost and remain safe! We had a great time!
Happy to sit outside and eat delicious food. Great service in a socially distant environment.
Very comfortable. Our waitress was great, and all of the food was delicious and very satisfying! Yum!
Nice casual neighborhood spot. Excellent service. Loved the duck pizza! It was our first time and we’ll absolutely go back.
