We had heard a lot of buzz about Melt, but found it wanting in many ways: too garish and loud, menu consisting of many greasy items, uncomfortable seating, scroungy looking staff, none of which contributed to a pleasant experience for us. Will not return.

Went last night for a couples night out. I read that there is a wait, we waited about 15 minutes. Friendly staff, good waiter. Food was on the table in less than 15. The Cole slaw was advertised as sweet, but I found it to be the hottest(spicy) I have ever eaten. Loaded with onions and red pepper. It was... More

We had heard great things about Melt from our sister in law, so we were excited to try it out. We were in town for a little get away and had a hotel not too far from the restaurant. When we got there, it was around 2 pm on a Sunday and they were on an hour wait for a... More

This was our second time at Melt, first time at this location. My party of 3 arrived about 4:50 on a Friday evening and beat the crowds! No wait for a table! The waiter was very nice. We ordered the tofu wings to start with. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. We are definitely getting those again!!! My husband is against anything not made of... More

This place has been a family favorite for years now. Lately it has really let us down. I guess it depends on what time of day you visit. The last few times we have went we tried to go a bit later to avoid the huge crowds and the food was not so good. I really miss the days of... More

This is an update review. I went to this same location a few years ago and ended up leaving. This time, I went in the late afternoon and had a different experience. While not healthy, the food is very tasty. My only complaint would be the fries. Way too much salt!

Melt has a big selection of super high calorie sandwiches. If you like fried cheese in the middle of huge slices of bread it is your place. My family found our sandwiches to be greasy and extremely filling. There are some very creative ways to have a grilled cheese made if you have a huge appetite and are not dieting.... More

When my daughter comes home each year, we stop here for lunch before we even get home. It was a perfect place to watch the Browns game

Now, in all fairness to the creators of Melt. This place has charm, character and is very unique in concept. Sadly, it is completely out of bounds when it comes to healthy fair and I'll explain. The calorie counts on these sandwiches must have a minimum of 2,000+! It's a Cleveland original for sure but ranks low in the healthy... More

We came looking for a table for two at 7:30ish on a Friday night. We expected to wait. We were told 30 minutes, so we got drinks from the bar and enjoyed looking around at the wonderful year round holiday decorations. Yes you will see a Santa, next to an Easter Bunny, next to a Jack-O-Lantern, next to a Leprechaun!... More
