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

We saw this on Man vs Food and Best Thing I Ever Ate and had to try it. We are from NY and thought these crazy grilled cheese sandwiches were amazing! I had the Monte Cristo - loved the jam it came with! My daughter had the meatloaf grilled cheese - she said it was spicy but ate the whole... More

Bread was really good, just could not taste what was between the slices. Fried green tomatoes were different and really pretty good. A little expensive for the food, but think you are paying more for the atmosphere than the food. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing.

This place is phenomenal! The food is to die for and the atmosphere is so fun. I usually get the pool pork onion ring grilled cheese sandwich and I love it! The only downside to it is that there is normally a pretty decent wait at this location, and sometimes there is a very long wait. Other than that I... More

Start with a grilled cheese sandwich, with crazy toppings, fillings and sides. It will be served by a good wait staff with a smile. You'll enjoy a fun vibe, unique meal and find the long wait that you'll probably have will be worth it!

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
