    We had a great meal with great service. We enjoyed the Parmageddon, Smokey Russian, Roasted Vegetable and a half Kindergarten. Each of the sandwiches were full of flavor. We would definitely go back.

    So delicious, but the sandwiches are giant! Definitely better to split with someone. Monte cristo is like an elephant ear with a sandwich inside-very sweet. My favorite is still the kindergarden.

    This place is awesome. For the Vegan like me, grab a Seitan sandwich with some vegan cheddar and garlicky mushrooms....See if they have Dark Helmet beer available to...Use the Force.

    Lake Eire monster was not present last time but was replaced by another fish and chips type melt with hush puppies. So good. Take half your delicious meal home. Have a heartattack.

    Amazing sandwiches and awesome beers at a reasonable price. Don't come at peak times, come around 1-4 pm. And sit at the bar - it's full service and there's usually immediate bar seating.

    Get the Northcoast Shores! Crabcake, roasted red peppers... it's my favorite every time I go! It'll run out fast, so order it soon! Pair with the tomato soup and you can't lose!

    Word is that during the week lunch doesn't pick up til about 12:30. Came in at 11:30 and had no problem with seating or service. The staff is awesome and so is the tuna melt. Bonus=slaw with pickles!!

    I like the idea of this place, I really do. However, this location has been open for about 2 1/2 years and has 5 other locations and they still can't get people at tables within a decent time. BS!

    On Man v Food, Adam Richman heads to Melt Bar & Grilled for the Melt Challenge: a massive grilled cheese sandwich with 14 cheeses, plus fries and slaw, clocking in at 5-lbs. of gooey deliciousness.

    Totally worth the wait... food was fantastic, great beer selection and the guy who waited on us was actually great! We had one Ham & Cheddar, the Vegetarian Mom's Meatloaf & the Purple Parma... YUM!

    Anything better than grilled cheese that brings back your childhood memories? Economic choice to hang out, food in great amount, but watch out for the wait

    Being lactose intolerant, melt wasn't my choice. But I was blown away by the vegan cheese. Highly recommend

    Try crab cake. very tasty. The mushroom melt burger was great too. A little sweet from the caramelized onions. And yeah. It's worth the wait.

    Great veggie meatloaf... Fries on and banana... One with egg on it.. All of it really good... But it's at least an hour and forty five min wait :(

    If you take away the Food Network nod, the cool vibe and stellar buzz, it's just a sandwich - a really good (and big) sandwich - but still just a sandwich. I came hoping to love, but left only liking.

    Second time at melt first time at this location. Had the chorizo and potato grilled cheese. So much better than I thought. Like a gourmet taco on grilled cheese. Delicious highly recommend.

    Come for the sandwiches, stay for the beer. 30 craft beers on tap makes this easily the best beer bar in Cleveland Heights.

    The Hungry Hungarian is the best. If it's not available, I highly recommend the mushroom melt--best caramelized onions EVER.

    A perfect place to work if you have a penchant for the work of Mumford & Sons, Interpol, Santogold, The Black Keys, Black Kids or any other hipster groups. Dov Charney gives his seal of approval.
