"It's like Halloween and Christmas Eve at the same time"

After hearing so much about this place, we decided to give it a try. The menus are pasted on the back of old album jacket covers. The décor is worth a stop alone. Plastic blow molds (lit up) from every holiday, cover the walls. Cleveland's past is well represented with WMMS and sports. Lulu... read more

This is the third incarnation of the famous Lakewood establishment and it doesn't disappoint! Definitely try one of the monthly specials if you're feeling adventurous. Don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table, but I promise it's worth it!

My first time going to Melt Bar & Grill. The people I had dinner with loved this place and they ordered the Big Melt. It was the biggest Cheese Melt I have ever seen. If you are not a big eater just get the half size and it will fill you up.

First seated on the high chairs, uncomfortable and in the way of people coming through. Switched to a table and were ignored for a bit. Food was pretty good though!

What a great idea to have absurdly large sandwiches with huge slabs of bread. I think it's hilarious, fun, and I love it. I take a lot of it home, and it's just as good as leftovers. Can't wait for the one to open in Fairlawn!

This place was amazing! Great service, super funky decor and the servings are huge. I had the tofu buffalo wings and the parmageddon. Both were delicious. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants to have fun while dining out.

Who knew how many ways you could make a grilled cheese? The portions are huge, and the food is downright delicious!

Be prepared for long waits but the pay off is some great comfort food. The sandwiches are huge and the service is really good. The menus were glued to the back of old album covers and there is a lot of local photos both sports and rock related since this is Cleveland.

I have a weakness for grilled cheese sandwiches and when I heard about this restaurant and it's focus , I was looking forward to eating there. On a recent to Cleveland with my wife, we made plans to eat there. The restaurant is very attractive and clean with many things placed around it to look at during our stay. The... More
