My hubby and I stopped here for lunch and LOVED it. We both got half sandwiches and they were enormous. We were both full from the half and fries so it would take a big appetite to eat the full order. The decor is fun to look at and keeps you entertained. My only "compalint" would be that although our... More

We found Melt way back when the first restaurant was opened in Lakewood. Was always a great destination as we headed west of the river. Melt has expanded to multiple locations. Not sure the food has maintained the same level of tasty from those early days but still good. Service was just fine. Has the mushroom melt. Pretty tasty but... More

I've never had a bad sandwich at Melt. Everything here is delicious. Don't get me wrong, i usually pay for it the next day because their portions are huge and who wants to take home leftovers when you can eat all that delicious then, and let's face it, it's not the healthiest of foods. But boy is it good! We've... More

Obviously good food sometimes requires waiting awhile for a table. We waited around 45 minutes for a table on a Saturday night. Not a problem, but we then waited seemingly forever for our food as well which I started to think was part of the reason for the long wait for tables. Service was also a bit off and slow... More

Gourmet grilled cheese? Yes please. They call them grilled cheese, but they are realy an assortment of great sandwiches! I certainly recommend ordering a half, or plan to take half home.

We love going to the Melt and have yet to be disappointed! This was our first time at this location and parking can be tough because there's not a parking lot so you have to find street parking and the meters only take quarters. The drink specials were awesome and the food was delicious!

Wow! Absolutely perfect grilled cheese sandwiches. Crispy bread, melty cheeses and all the additions, I had mushrooms and caramelized onions and spinach, were really tasty. Husband had the BBQ with onion rings and pulled pork. He loved it. Our real estate agent loved her sandwich too. Huge, HUGE, portion of fries came with each sandwich. We all had 1/2 sandwich...

We tried this place (first time) while dropping my daughter at college in Cleveland this past weekend. What a fantastic place and crazy atmosphere! I am glad I didn't order a full grilled cheese. Pick your own bread, cheese, just amazing. The place has great signage and seasonal displays from Halloween & Christmas (wild stuff). Staff was very good. Great... More

Happy hour is a $1 discount which is no big deal but the tap offerings were excellent. Didn't try the food but am planning on going back. They are opening another Melt downtown in the near future.
