Location and contact

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

So many options. Lots of interesting spins on the typical grilled cheese/melt, and a great beer selection as well. Easily a spot I'd visit often with friends if I lived in the area.

Excellent variety of sandwiches, which all sounded good. I went with a meatball, fried cheese and marinara sandwich which was excellent.

I thought I would love this place. I based that on the pictures I saw. However, I was quite underwhelmed. The food was just meh.

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.
