We had the great fortune of driving by Melt while in Cleveland. We stopped in for lunch. Started with a great IPA on tap. This place basically serves grilled cheese sandwiches, but there is nothing basic on the menu. The most creative tasty food you've eaten!! The portions are huge, you may want to split a sandwich. If your in... More

Great food, great atmosphere! Go hungry or order the half. Try something different. Great beer selection. Worth the wait. This is the original. They have many locations across the state. We would go back.

I finally made it to The Melt after hearing so much about it. I asked our server what they recommended, and they said the Korean BBQ Melt. I would of loved it, but the bottom of the bun was soggy from the sauce. I had to ask for another bun, which took about a half hour to get. I guess... More

I have heard a lot about this place and I was very eager to try it. As I walked in I was reminded of the 90s growing up with awful plastic Christmas decorations and Halloween decorations. By awful I mean amazing because I felt like a kid growing up going out to eat. The food was great. I cant say... More

So the food tasted pretty good. We went here late night. I was happy to have something warm. It was both my and my husband's first visit. We both had the Korean Sandwich. And we both had explosive number 3s afterwards. We talked to some of our friends from the area who have gone there to make sure it wasn't... More

Wait staff was very attentive and helpful. He described menu for us as it was the first time which I found helpful considering it's a huge menu! Food was fresh and delicious! My son had the Mac n cheese melt which was quite obscene but he loved it!! Salad was fresh and homemade blue cheese dressing was a bonus!

Melt Bar & Grilled is the silliest concept restaurant I've ever patronized. First the positives.....the beer selection is great. Now the negatives: -food portions are more comical than generous -service is more or less disinterested -the food itself is absurd - and lacks any nuance or quality whatsoever. -the menu lacks variety and quality for someone who does not want...

This is the ultimate grilled cheese place. Believe me when I say it's difficult to eat a whole sandwich here because they are large and in charge. If I lived here I would hang out at this place all the time. The wake up fries are poutine - and incredibly delicious. It could be a whole meal on its own.... More
