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... read 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

For whatever reason, they don't accept reservations. I don't know why, but they don't, so there is always a wait. An hour wait is very good. Very, very good. We've waited upwards of two hours before. Why wait that long? The food. I can only eat Monte Cristo's at Melt because theirs are just so darn awesome. I've never tried... More

We had lunch on a weekday, service was quite fast considering the place was packed. Soup was delicious and the sandwich was yummy that I almost finished it (it was a really big serving!). For picky people, this one's a great place, you get to choose your own sandwich and salad dressing and cheeses, and a wide variety of them... More

I had the opportunity for lunch here several years ago while on business. I have also eaten at the Independence location, but I feel that nothing beats the original experience of the Lakewood flagship! I returned today and took my family with me. A tip: we arrived at opening (11:00) on a weekday to avoid the long wait. We skipped... More

This was my family's first visit to Melt-- though we had heard and read about it many times. We arrived around 11:30 on a Sunday and were seated right away. Our waitress welcomed us and explained the menu- as we were first timers. I ordered the purple Parma- the vegan version. It was fantastic! There is no way anyone would... More
