One of the most famous places in Lakewood. Casual,comfort food. You will not believe the size of the portions. You may have to wait to get in on the weekends. Suggest you go during the week. Awesome place, one of my favorite places to eat.

I had heard plenty about this place from locals in Cleveland and those from Ohio so I knew I had to try it out. I worked at the Exchange in Chicago and the Ohio-based company's employees told me if ever in Cleveland one must go to MELT. I did. I loved it. A wide array of unique and interesting grilled...

I have visited Melt Bar & Grilled in Lakewood, OH numerous time to enjoy a fantastic burger and other great sandwiches. The sandwiches are served on thick sliced, grilled bread, which helps keep it from getting soggy. The burgers are cooked to order, although I have had to send a couple back because they were just a tad undercooked. Creating... More

Fun atmosphere and great beer selection but the food was so-so. We expected to have more ingredients than bread but were very disappointed. Idea is great but overall the food was not great.

Ever since this restaurant came on the scene I have always wanted to like it but I have trouble liking any of the sandwiches I have ordered. Everyone always tells me that I ordered wrong, but even when I ordered the kindergartner ( which is a basic grilled cheese sandwich) I didn't like that. The bread is huge and there's... More

We were really excited for our grilled cheese experience but we weren't wowed by anything. On the positive side, the service was great.

I loved the look & location of this establishment & I absolutely loved there over sized entrees, however service kinda sucked. When I 1st walked in there were 2 people behind the counter, servers walking by, no line but I still had to ask for service after 3 mins & not even getting a greeting.

Unquestionably, the greatest sandwich I've ever eaten in my lifetime (my 68-year old father said the same). We started with the perogi appetizer. Absolutely delicious, and the cabbage slaw was the perfect accompaniment. Forget exactly what my sandwich was called, but it had pulled pork / mango glaze / plantains / caramelized onions / etc on it. It was miraculous.... More

I love grilled cheese!! Love it, love it, love it! I was usually a Kindergarten gal, but every time I go to Melt, I like to try different ones! You get the choice of different cheeses, toppings, or even just go with a signature sandwich! They even have vegan and now gluten-free options. Every July, though, I have to go... More

Gourmet grilled cheese! Need I say more? Our family tried the wild, wet buffalo, the Monte Cristo, and the Backyard BBQ and they were all delicious. Great service, cool décor and price is not bad. Wish there was one closer to our home but will definitely stop in when in the area again.
