My friends make fun of my grilled cheese Melt tattoo. If the'd have gotten a bite of my Korean BBQ War Pig sandwich yesterday, they'd get one too (tattoo AND sandwich). Korean BBQ glaze on pulled pork and pork belly, with a kimchee slaw, coriander relish and muenster cheese. Amazing! Staff was awesome as always. Menus are stuck to the... More

We always enjoy the food from Melt and enjoy eating at the Lakewood location when we have time for a leisurely meal. But we LOVE that we can phone in the order and pick it up. This option usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes. The themed "specials" are fantastic but we have our favorite stand-bys as well. Parmageddon, Godfather,... More

Our stop at this restaurant unfortunately coincided with National Grilled Cheese day (week), and it was packed!! This added to the desirability, believe it or not. Instead of adding our name to the list, we drew out a phrase - ours was "Truth or Dare" (imaginative). The wait staff was uniquely dressed, and could not be mistaken for anything else... More

Melt has excellent food and ambiance but you have to wait a long time to be seated. There is nothing on the menu you shouldn't try. The key is to get there early or off hours.

We live in Lakewood. You'd think we would go to the hyper-popular Melt all the time. Nope. We've been twice since it opened. Gloppy, bland, huge portions do not appeal to us. It was vaguely disgusting watching people waddle in and inhale mountains of carb-heavy and fried food. I liked the decor in the bathroom. I guess that's a plus.... More

They won't accept reservations and force you to wait at least 45-min to an hour on average. So if your starving, think twice. After putting in our time wating, we were seated near the bar and by the front window. The waiter appeared shortly thereafter and took our drink orders which arrived in a timely fashion. We then placed our... More

Our family loved this restaurant. We love stopping at DDD restaurants and this one did not dissapoint. We walked in at 7 on a Friday expecting a huge wait and we waited only 10 minutes. Very friendly staff and a real chill vibe. Very cool! We tried the Wake and Bacon which my son wanted again the next morning for... More

Melt has a nice niche, putting their mark on the classic grilled cheese. The menu is huge - as long as you want some variation of grilled cheese. It is easy to find one for any taste. They even have fried twinkles if you are so inclined. But the sandwiches are so large that I had no room for dessert.... More

Food fit for a glutton. Not that tasteful either. Plenty of American fans, no doubt, but do yourself a favor and find another place to eat.
