They have a gluten free menu. Yea! But the meatloaf and the Impossible Burger listed on it are not gluten free. So... how could I trust anything else. I'm not celiac, but what if I were? That said, I ordered the mushroom melt after grilling...More

Everything we tried was great. Not a huge beer selection but a few choices available. We tried Mac n cheese grilled cheese, chicken and waffles, meatball, philly cheese grilled cheese, and chicken parm grilled cheese. I’ll be back again to try other options.

My wife and I stopped in for a quick dinner before a baseball game. The only nice things I can say about this restaurant is that it is attractive, has a decent beer selection and the service was friendly. The food was absolutely abysmal and...More

Seasonal sides are amazing! Parking. Bit of a walk but nice neighborhood. Their lite beer is blah. Good veggie burgers

Large sandwiches but mostly bread. I did a take out 1/2 of the Cuban War Pig. I took the bread off and ate the filling. It truly was just too much and took away from the meat of the sandwich. Fries were soggy and lukewarm....More

We ate at Melt on 6-12-18. I had the half combo which was 1/2 grilled cheese, soup, and salad. Generous portions. If you get the side of potato salad it will be a whole large bowl. Wife loved the mushroom grilled cheese. Speed of service...More

We came to the restaurant for a lunch visit on a quiet Monday afternoon. The wait was very short and the lobby mural with the Ohio celebrities hidden was a fun distraction. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The wait staff was short that day,...More

I was under impressed with Melt Bar and Grill from a food standpoint, but enjoyed the fun atmosphere the establishment was going for. The front entrance wall is painted with famous cartoons and characters from movies and shows while the rest of the restaurant was...More

We were really disappointed last night in our visit to this place with our granddaughter. We waited more than 40 minutes for our food (even though there were very few patrons in the restaurant), and our waiter never checked back about refills or anything. Our...More

Melt opened in September 2006 with one goal: To provide gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and as many beers as possible in a cool and comfortable environment. No bar food. No boring choices on tap. And something for everyone: it's Cleveland-friendly, slightly kitschy, and memorable. It's relaxing, energetic, and fun. The menu has many staples, but it's always changing. There's new stuff to look at, and new stuff to try. Which is why Melt has only one major recurring "problem"-it's busy all the time! And no wonder: Melt specializes in one thing, and one thing only: that original goal mentioned above. This explains the regulars, even those who'll drive an hour to be here. It's an entity-a family-not merely a restaurant. Actually, it's more of an event. Melt Bar and Grilled is an independently owned and operated restaurant group based in Cleveland, Ohio.
