Because of heavy exposure on Man v. Food, Melt (at least the Rockside location) is always bursting at the seems with people. Frankly, I can't understand why. The place is extremely noisy, the serving staff heavily tatted and hipsteresque, and the food average. The grilled sandwiches ARE large--but most of it is extremely thick Texas toast with minimal actual meat/cheese... More

As if we didn't stuff ourselves enough on Thanksgiving, some of our family decided to do further damage to our waistlines by having lunch at Melt the day after Thanksgiving. I have been to this location before & usually there is a wait. On this day most people must have been out shopping on Black Friday or watching the Michigan/Ohio... More

This place is so different and fun. They have every kind of grilled cheese sandwich you can imagine and they're all huge. They also have a huge selection of beers on tap. Our waitress was so nice and helpful. Great people and great atmosphere at Melt's.

Service was a tad slow for a Monday afternoon (around 1:30 pm). Saw a waitress wipe down the legs of the table, then with the same rag wipe the table top off... Food was ok, Carb overload for me today... If you love carbs, you will LOVE Melt.... A tad greasy today as well... still decent, but I will wait... More

Tasty sandwich. If you order the full portion, expect a carry out box. Great atmosphere, cool people.

Not impressed with this restaurant at all. Went with a large group and many of us felt the restaurant was a complete disappointment. Was trying to keep my meal relatively healthy. I ordered a salad with grilled chicken. The salad looked great, but the chicken was extremely dry. Two other guests had the meatball sandwich and both stated the meatball... More

Grilled cheese and variations of the same are pretty good. But, they wont let you alter a menu item to fit your taste and the food is very expensive.

Overall good experience. Food was very good, large portions for your money. The menu has something for everybody. Service was good, our waitress could have been a little more enthused to be working there.
