Eat a CHEAT MEAL Here! ENORMOUS Portions!!!

Stopped in here with my niece after seeing this place---or perhaps one of the other locations, as i learned it is a franchise---on the #foodnetwork. We shared the "Melt Pierogis." They were good, but a bit too heavy on the toppings for my taste. I think the excess cheese and kraut just detracted... read more

Very good Grilled Cheese sandwiches, I have had a very different ones, my favorite is the Prime Rib but it is only on the menu a couple times a year. The fries are also really good, Always a wait for a table but worth it.

Melt has a very cool vibe. The menus are pasted onto the backs of vinyl record sleeves, the staff is friendly and personable. We were impressed with how giant each of our sandwiches were. The restaurant was very busy and luckily, we weren't in a hurry so it didn't bother us if we didn't see our server for a while.... More

We traveled cross country and this was our favorite restaurant. Don't worry about your diet for this meal - just go for it! We had a perogie appetizer and sandwiches for meals - delicious! Staff were all great

I'm excited to be able to check this place off of my bucket list! My fiancé and I ate here during a trip to Cleveland. We went for a late lunch around 2:30 PM on a Saturday and had no wait. We ate the Parma, Italy and Monte Cristo and both were fantastic! Of course the portions are huge, but... More

I absolutely LOVE Melt! Although the wait for a table is sometimes very long, I think the food is totally worth it. The portions are huge and I've yet to try a sandwich I don't like. A must-visit spot!

I guess this may be the original location of the beloved Melt Bar and Grilled. The food is as good here as it is at other locations. However, every time I have attempted to eat here, there was an hour wait. I don't wait around for any restaurant for an hour, thank you. I did manage to make it in... More

A group of 12 of us went to melt after a long day of touring around the city. We were shocked at the size of the sandwiches! Incredible. Fun selection and variety. It's certainly a place I would go again.

I love the Melt. My son and I have been going for several years. The sandwiches are excellent. I've been a little disappointed in the fries the past two visits. They used to be so good, but now, they are just fries. Also, I miss the cole slaw that came with it. That was special stuff. Definitely go there if... More
