Great value place to eat on Rockside Rd. in Independence.

Visited this place as it was highly recommended on this site for places on Rockside Rd. in Independence, near to our hotel. I ordered The Dude Abides, my daughter ordered the War Pig. Word to the wise: if there are two of you, just order ONE melt as one is enough for two people. It comes with... read more

We had read about the legendary sandwiches at Melt and had to try them for ourselves! Amazing! Because we had been warned of the size, our group (2 families with teenagers) opted to share sandwiches. There was more than enough food in one sandwich (served with fries) for 2 adults! The favourite choices at the table were the Monte Cristo... More

Fun atmosphere, and let your imagination run wild with the amazing menu! More food than one person can eat so don't be afraid to share, or at least you'll know what's for lunch tomorrow! Be prepared to have to wait for a seat but it's worth it!

Not impressed. Stopped in for a quick lunch while in town for business. Staff were friendly and my food was promply ordered and served. Ordered a sandwich. The bread was great, but the sandwich was very heavy on the salt.

I enjoyed a great dinner here while visiting Ohio. The atmosphere is very casual yet fun. The delicious sandwiches are piled high on rustic, thick, toasted bread slices. The fries were fresh, crisp and a perfect golden color. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I will be back when I pass through again.

We started with the piero hi appetizers and then I had the Italian grilled cheese. It was awesome. The decor is eclectic holiday and... More

Heard great things about Melt so I decided while I was in the area to give it a try. Really cool décor and menus. The menus are on the back on old record album covers. They have a quality menu of different varieties of their rendition of a grill cheese. Anyone of those you get will require you to take... More

Let's just say this place isn't packed with an hour and a half wait for no reason, but it was worth the trip. Monte Cristos are one of my favorite sandwiches and no one has done it better the Melt.

Just stopped by for drinks. Bartender was very friendly but a little slow. Excellent beer selection. The food looked great. I will be back to eat.
