Wonderful soup, a few hard to find healthy options

I've been here a few times over the years, but this is the first review I've written for it. This most recent visit, I enjoyed the tomato soup for the first time, along with a pretty basic grilled cheese. I did notice that they have a 1/2 soup & 1/2 sandwich option that I will definitely try the... read more

I guess this may be the original location of the beloved Melt Bar and Grilled. The food is as good here as it is at other locations. However, every time I have attempted to eat here, there was an hour wait. I don't wait around for any restaurant for an hour, thank you. I did manage to make it in... More

A group of 12 of us went to melt after a long day of touring around the city. We were shocked at the size of the sandwiches! Incredible. Fun selection and variety. It's certainly a place I would go again.

I love the Melt. My son and I have been going for several years. The sandwiches are excellent. I've been a little disappointed in the fries the past two visits. They used to be so good, but now, they are just fries. Also, I miss the cole slaw that came with it. That was special stuff. Definitely go there if... More

As a parent of 3 kids and Melt being literally just around the corner, we have given string effort to try to really like Melt. The food is great - heavy but great. It is the service that is the anchor to my review. Long, long wait to get a table, and the staff must be overworked because it took... More

We stopped on our way into Cleveland and had a great dinner! The atmosphere is fun and relaxed. Our server, Vinnie, was superb! He was full of helpful recommendations and attentive. The Monte Cristo was phenomenal.

Without question the staple location of Melt Bar and Grilled is fantastic. We sat at the bar, which is full service, because as usual the place was on a wait. This is very common FYI, so call ahead and get an idea of the wait time. Parking is located out back with plenty of lots available. It's a nice area... More

To celebrate my daughter's new digs in Cleve, we went to the Lakewood icon. Didn't disappoint--lots of food! Too many choices! A great experience. I'm not a big grilled cheese fan, but I enjoyed my simple grilled cheese. You gotta go!
