First time traveling to Independence, Ohio and glad we stopped at Melt Bar & Grill. The staff is extremely friendly, great selection of beer on tap and the atmosphere was amazing. The prime rib melt was delicious.

Glad we tried it but definitely over hyped. To me these are more sandwiches than grilled cheese. My version of grilled cheese is definitely cheesy & more grilled! Back yard bar b q was good and we also had the hot Italian. The BBQ one was our favorite.. slaw was light and spicy since the sandwich in itself is enough.... More

Since Melt broke onto to the Cleveland scene, people have raved about the great sandwiches. Three of us took the plunge last night. The place wasn't too busy but the service proved slow and the food just so-so. The decor is fun and our server was nice but neither saved the day. Yes, sandwiches come on big chunks of grilled...

Ok so I am very surprised by this amazing place. They have gluten free options!! That's right, you can get gluten free grilled cheese!! Very good, and very delicious. I wish the hangover fries had gluten free gravy.

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
