Melt Bar and Grilled

Opened in 2006, Melt Bar and Grilled only had one goal: to serve gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches – and a ton of beer – in a cool, comfortable setting. There are about 20 beers on tap, and approximately 150 available by the bottle, at any given time.

You can go classic – think the grilled cheese your mom made you in Kindergarten – or you can be a little daring with a chorizo and potato sandwich, a hot Italian, or a Cleveland cheese steak. Paired with this iconic restaurant’s sandwiches, the fries are simply irresistible. (Also, be sure to try Matt Fish’s Hangover Fries for some deliciously loaded fries.)

This popular sandwich shop has locations in Lakewood, Cleveland Heights, Mentor, Independence, The Short North and Easton.
