I went with a few others and we split some sandwiches. I think we went a bit hard in the paint and got some really strange sandwiches and some of them were totally on point, but some got lost in the sauce on what they were trying to accomplish. Something that I was not expecting but was pleasantly surprised with... More

The sandwiches are big you might want to share or get a half sandwich with soup. The soup too is good. The only negative is its always crowded

Recommended by a colleague and with feed back from DDD we headed to this location using Uber About 15 minutes from the convention center but an easy ride through a beautiful neighborhood. Friendly staff, relax and with a neighborhoods feeling. Menu mega interesting and drink menu extensive for the beer lovers. You can chose full or half portions both are... More

If you are in the area it's a must stop kind of place. Who knew grilled could be so good. Make the sandwich as simple or complex as you like.

My first time at Melt and it was amazing! There are plenty of sandwich options and all of them look great. The food was delicious, too! The service was a bit slow (they seemed to always be constantly busy), but the food still made up for it. Make sure to try the vegetarian chili!

Sandwiches are absolutely huge and definitely not the healthiest choice but I love the Parmageddon, the Kindergarten and just tried the peanut butter banana and cream cheese. Wow wow wow. Must try if you live or are visiting Cleveland/Lakewood.

I also ordered an island mule, which is my favorite beverage there. We both ordered... More

While waiting for our lunches, I joked with my family that they should rename this restaurant 'Melt at a Glacial Pace'. Let me explain. I first went to the original Melt in Lakewood nearly four years ago, but then there was a two to three hour wait for a seat during the lunch hour. Therefore my family and I decided... More
