Melt in your mouth.

I rated this average because my friends had great food and mine was average. My wife had the spicy shrimp and liked it but I tasted it and it was ok. My friend had the cheesesteak and liked it but though his wife's mushroom melt was better and she raved about it. My wife liked her sub. The... read more

A fun place to eat. Always a wait, just sometimes are shorter waits than others. Primary focus is grilled cheese with this and that included but there is a variety of other choices as well. Good selection of beers.

Wife and I went for early dinner and loved it. Even at 4pm on Friday it was busy enough that we had to sit at the bar but that was just fine. We got chorizo fries for an app, and it was like nachos except thick, fresh fries served as the chips. Tasty but messy. Wide variety of sandwich options,... More

Very busy during meal times so plan ahead and leave early. Service was good during busy times. Food is great! So many ways to eat cheese. Lakewood parking and traffic is the only negative.

It's a rare thing to find a place to eat where I can get my family to all agree. I am vegan, my husband and kids, not so much. Welcome to Melt! I love that I can get almost anything made vegan here and it's delish (though not terribly healthful) and my family can get something they love too. My... More

Great atmosphere, we only waited a few minutes (horrible weather may have contributed to that), and the service was good. The menu has a lot of options (though they are mostly grilled sandwiches) and the prices are very reasonable. The food is good, don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't say it's fabulous. The bread is sliced very thick so... More

The sandwiches here are creative,huge, and delicious. It is truly an experience to not miss. Would recommend coming early as it can get quite busy.

I absolutely love Melt. First timers; beware, the wait will be very long. But it's completely worth it! The portions are absolutely huge. No matter what type of sandwich you get, I guarantee it'll be piled high. My usual used to be the Wake n Bacon, which was always amazing. Now I get The Godfather, which is equally as amazing....

Most of the sandwiches are designated as grilled cheese. They are a regular type sandwich with cheese on them. They look large because of the "Texas" type toast they are on. Nothing special about them unless you like to eat a lot of "junk" and unhealthy food. The meat on the Cleveland Cheese Steak was tough and could only eat... More

All of the food at Melt is made for large appetites, so be sure to arrive starving. Since we visited during the holidays, and were already testing the limits of our stomach capacity, it was a losing proposition. The pierogie appetizer was just enough for me, 2 pierogie with onion and cabbage, of course. A Wake and Bacon, After School... More
