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

If you are looking for great food and big portions, Melt is you spot. Started off with the tofu wings and they were fantastic. I'm not a normal huge fan of tofu but these wings were phenomenal. The dude abides sandwich was awesome with mozzarella sticks and meatballs in it! Def would recommend

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.

This is my second time at MELT Bar & Grilled. We drove from Ontario, Canada to do some history tours in Oberlin & stopped here for lunch. Love love. Friendly staff & of course the fiesta ware dishes help make the experience even better! :-)

Well, I can't complain about the value. You get an enormous plate of satisfyingly greasy food with very original flavors for a pretty good price. I must recommend the Wake & Bacon, while my mother enjoyed the Parma Italy. Gigantic pile of excellent French fries along with the only cole slaw I've ever liked (fantastic kick) made this a nice...
