GALLERY: Melt Opens Mentor Location

Check out a few images from Melt's newest restaurant

Mentor's newest, cheesiest restaurant opened Friday to a packed lunchtime crowd.

Some people waited 30 minutes to be seated at Melt Bar & Grilled, but the anticipation of choosing from 36 gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches made it worth it. People like Mentor resident Jason Knotts were excited to have the restaurant in the city.

"I like all the beers they have on tap," Knotts said. "I like the atmosphere and, obviously, the food.

"They're hitting a big base around this area, I'm sure it's going to be packed all the time."

Before Friday, Mentor residents had to drive to Cleveland Heights, Independence or Lakewood for Melt's popular grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers, fries and microbrews. Those who are new to Melt were ready to experience the food that landed the restaurant a segment on The Travel Channel's Man V. Food.

"I heard it was one of the best sandwiches," Mentor resident Keith Fair said. "It was rated highly on TV, and I love trying new things."

Melt hours are:

11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Sun.-Thurs.; 11 a.m. to midnight, Fri.-Sat. (kitchen)

11 a.m. to 2 a.m., daily (bar)
