Melt makes some mind-blowing sandwiches. In fact, I'm not sure calling them sandwiches really does them justice. They're life affirming experiences on bread. The whole place has a great attitude about it, and the menu changes regularly. They offer lots of vegetarian-friendly substitutions too. For my money, The Dude Abides may just be the greatest sandwich ever. Don't miss this... More

Huge sandwiches, good fries, but what really stood out was the service. Our waitress went above and beyond to accommodate our large family group, especially the kids. Highly recommended.

I love the atmosphere and food here. Be prepared for huge portions of some delectable combinations. Everything looks good but I would definitely try the Buffalo Chicken soup with whatever you order.

I cannot say enough about the food here. In short, it was delicious!! Oh my...a grilled cheese sandwich just about any way you want it. The decor inside is fun and eclectic, too. I wholeheartedly recommend this place and wish I lived close enough to eat here every week.

We tried Melt on a wednesday night at 7:30pm hoping to get in and not wait long. We were told 40 minutes, so we took a walk down the street and back for 25, then came in and waited in the restaurant. It took an hour and 20 minutes to get a table, and we were given a free appetizer... More

I have come to the melt many times. I love it! I never had a bad meal ever. Might have to wait a bit for a table but so worth it. Who knew you could do so much with cheese.....everything is so delicious. It's a must try if you haven't and a must come again if you have!

One of these trendy hot spot places. Meaning the wait is long and in the end its just a giant grilled cheese sandwich. Not worth the money. If you like trendy places, long lines, overpriced mediocre food then this is a great place. If you are looking for good comfort food there are better choices with less lines and for... More

What a fun place! Food was great though maybe not for weight watcher. I highly recommend it! Very creative and honor the grilled cheese sandwich. Good for families or a nite out.

Come early because wait times can be between 30-45 minutes. My husband and I arrived around 1PM and was seated nearly at 2PM but it was worth the wait! Try the Falcon Punch, it's a yummy concoction of vodka, cabernet, and orange juice. I had two! We ordered the Melt Challenge out of curiosity. It was a huge serving of... More
