Melvyn's Restaurant at the Ingleside Inn is open 100% to entertain all our guests. The Formal Dining Room is open serving those guests who want to dress up and make it an exciting adventurous evening. Table side service is available in the Formal Dining Room only. One new addition to Melvyn's Restaurant is the Garden Patio, now serving dinner to those more casually dressed. Feel free to come in with jeans and tee-shirts and enjoy the casual dining experience. The entire menu is available with the exception of table side service, the meals will be prepared in the kitchen. The Casablanca Lounge is open with entertainment 7 nights a week starting at 8:00 pm. We are excited to share our restoration taking the restaurant back to the 1970's when Mel Haber first opened Melvyn's.
Dress code required. Casual Elegance or Business Casual: no tank tops, flip flops, beachwear, or t-shirts. Collared shirts, slacks and jackets preferred.

Stuck in time. Fun place to transport you back to another era. We would have enjoyed it more if our table was in the main dining area, but when we arrived for our 7:00 reservation, that dining room was filled, so we were seated in an adjacent room, divided by a wall and some Windows. Not one other table around us was taken, so it felt a little lonely, otherwise I would have given a 5 star for atmosphere.
Food was good, dated a bit , but we knew what to expect. Service was very nice and professional.
The bar is always a fun option.

Food was good, service excellent. The place is caught in a time warp but not in a bad way. Kinda cool.

The service and food was spectacular! They make dining an "event". The classic charm and style is rarity. There is a reason why Frank Sinatra loved it!

Experience was great. Food, service and ambiance all worked for s. Understand that remodeling is about to happen. Hope they keep the same ambiance and not convert to a modern, noisy, cold room

The food was okay, but not worth the money that it costs. I loved the setting and the wine list was great. Probably would not go back again though.

Always yummy and fun! Two of us had the Cobb Salad and loved it! So delicious and fresh. The Eggs Benedict and Smoked Salmon and Bagel looked fab! So much to choose from. Another delightful weekend brunch at our favorite place for quiet, "getaway" dining. Great hand crafter cocktails and wine list as always. The service is always lovely and accommodating. A pleasure to be there and take in the atmosphere. ❤️
