The wait is so long. The restaurant is very popular and there are many tables which are very tightly packed. There is always a wait for getting a table. We wait about an hour every time we eat here. The food is delicious. I highly recommend the fried Twinkies. Every time, I order the same meal: the Monte Cristo sandwich.... More

Heard so much about this place over the years so I had to try it. Ordered the backyard BBQ sandwich, and it was pretty good but too much bread which made it a little dry. It wasn't bad, but don't get all the hype about this place

I was recommended by a local about this place for the grilled cheese sandwich and I was not disappointed at all. It is one of the best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever put in my mouth. The ambience of the place is great. If you enjoy watching sports game with a couple of buddies over a meal, this is... More

We love it here, the Lakewood location is the best one in my opinion. I think its the original one too. There are plenty of different styles of grilled cheese sandwiches to choose from. You will not be disappointed coming here! The only bad thing is they don't really have a kids menu so your child will end up getting... More

The establishment has a fun atmosphere with equally good food. I noticed that a lot of the patrons were leaving with doggie bags, and after being seated and seeing the sandwich size at the table next to ours, I then realized why. The sandwiches are not only great on taste but massive in size. Seeing the enormity of the sandwiches,... More

My husband and I went to Melt Bar on our anniversary after seeing this show on Diners, DriveInns and Dives. The bar was easy to find and the parking was very accessiable. We walked in and there was a 30 min wait but in total we waited maybe 15 mins choosing a spot at the bar. They make you wear... More

Secondly, funky cool joint, loved the vibe!! Last but certainly not least, wow sandwiches and loved their pickles. Only complaint is their fries. They REALLY need to take a... More

Someone called this the grilled cheese version of Kuma's Corner and I completely agree! I often find where I'm eating when I'm out of town by accessing the tv food maps website. I sent a friend here last year based on the site alone and she loved it, so when I finally headed into town, I knew it would be... More

Cool atmosphere and great food! Great space converted from an old bar in Lakewood. In the heart of downtown Lakewood with plenty of parking behind the building! Other cool places nearby like Geiger's clothing, Campbell's popcorn, World of Beers and Deagon Pub!

This is just a fun place to drop in and have a sandwich and a beer. The atmosphere is everything that everyone remembers having in their basement in Cleveland for the Holiday's. Everyone always seems to be in a good mood and you leave there happy. The menu is fun for adults and kids. Sandwiches are unique, big, and tasty...this... More
