My husband warned me to come hungry and he was not kidding! Over the top creative concoctions on your basic grilled cheese sandwich. Many of the choices reflected our unique northeast Ohio flare. It was busy but well worth the wait. We actually had our three-year-old granddaughter with us and she loved the funky selection of blow mold decorations. Our... More

Went w/my daughter and as usual, there was a wait. Luckily there were some empty spots at the bar, so we bellied up. Good, friendly service, good food as always and the drinks kept coming. Good atmosphere and if not for the usual long lines, I'd come here more often. My waistband is thankfully for that tho

My sisters and I went here to celebrate my birthday since I've been wanting to try it. Although our sandwiches were flavorful and we loved the dipping sauce for the Monte Cristo there is just way too much bread compared to filling. I know their signature bread is Texas toast style, and that would be fine, but the ratio is... More

Visited here for the first time last week with a couple of coworkers and were overwhelmed by the selections. How do you pick just one? You don't! We all got full sandwiches (half sandwiches are available) so that we could share. Together we had a chicken parm, chicken and waffles and peanut butter & banana. Everything was delicious and it...

No need to get the full size unless you're really hungry. These sandwiches are big, and delicious. They have a good variety of sandwiches and sides (although I didn't care for their potato salad, too vinegary). They also have a great variety of beer, but don't offer flights. The appetizers were also very good, we had the perogies and the... More

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.
