Massive Grilled Cheese

Do not come here on a first date. These things are massive. You will be quite literally stuffing your face with this handful of a sandwich. Not a pretty sight but oh so yummy. Unless you're starving, I'd recommend getting the half. I got the Fried Green Tomato BLT and added some avocado (note that... read more

Only knew about this because of Man vs Food. Took a trip into Cleveland to watch the Cavs play the Bulls, and put this on our things to do list. First impression was a good one, the restaurant did not smell like last nights spilled beer. Interesting decor that included many light up plastic holiday figures, local advertising signs and...

Second trip to Melt. Love the older building better than the one in Independence. Will definitely return to the one in Fairlawn this March. I've never had anything bad here, and the leftovers are still good! Love it!

My family has loved The Melt for years. The atmosphere is fun. The sandwich combinations are brilliant, delicious, and generously portioned. What I appreciate the most is their mission to accommodate all diet choices. My husband's an omnivore, my mom eats a gluten-free diet, and I'm vegan. There are several great options for each of us at The Melt.

I have been to Melt in Cleveland Heights on numerous occasions and I have never been disappointed. Sometimes there is a short wait, but the specials and regular menu items are all worth it.

Went to Melt the Friday after Thanksgiving with a few die-hard loyalists that really enjoyed the experience. I guess I just didn't get it. I was really excited to try Melt having seen it on Man vs. Food and with my nephew's endorsement. I tried a meatball sandwich named "The Dude Abides". The sandwich comes as a half order for... More

Been here a few times, and each time I feel the same-unashamedly gluttonous. Lots of choices but I am a fan of the monthly specials. So why is it more than grilled cheese? Beer! And what goes better?! They have an awesome beer selection, including lots of seasonals.

We were three people and ordered the meatball sandwich, the mac and cheese sandwich and the Big Popper. The Meatball one was the best, the mac one was too dry because of all the carbs and the Big Popper is just pure grease. I think it depends on the taste of each person if you want an artery clogging sandwich... More
