Cool place with an interesting menu. Four of us each ordered something different. I understand bread is a must for any grill cheese sandwich but in this concept I would prefer the cheese and other ingredients listed dominate the flavor. It just seemed like I was fighting thru the huge pieces of bread to get to the good stuff. Again... More

This trendy grilled cheese sandwich restaurant is worth the drive. So many unique and tasty sandwiches. There's something for everybody. The serving sizes are quite large, so you may want to share with a friend. Also, the wait time for a table may be long depending on the time you go, so be prepared.

I really enjoyed this place. There is something for everyone! Great happy hour. The menus are old record albums so it was a bit nostalgic as well. Then there is the sandwiches...OMG!!! Huge but also delicious. I had the eggplant parmigiana sandwich. Check it out.

Went in with a very good recommendation, and was greatly disappointed. Fries were too salty and peppery, my sandwiches had no taste. The only good thing we had was the Mac & Cheese bites and the beer.

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Melt. Sat at the bar, great food and good service. The Tomato soup is AWSOME and the meat loaf sandwich is also great. I'd recommend both.

My hubby and I thought we would try out this restaurant after seeing the ads for it. Was seated promptly. Waitress was very friendly and answered questions about the items on the menu. Hubby tried The Dude Abides and I had the Awesome Noodle#1 with peanut sauce salad. My salad was large and very tasty. Hubby enjoyed his meatball sandwich... More

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
