My husband and I went to the melt for his birthday back in September. It was our first time there and it was amazing! The food and service was top notch! We will be back.

My husband and I decided to try a restaurant we had never been to before. Melt was great and we are looking forward to our next time there.

Melt came up #3 when we looked for a lunch stop on our way home. We are so glad we stopped here! The food and service were both great. We’ll remember this place when we return to Birmingham.

Came here after an afternoon at Vulcan Park. Really good grilled sammies- the Cuban and the Summer Tomato were the standouts. Good sweet tea and local brews. Can’t ask for anything more!

Melt is the home of the Adult Grilled Cheese. Our group of four went on a relatively busy night. There was a 30 minute wait but going into to bar and grabbing a drink while waiting was very pleasant. The outside area has lots of...More

Yep, 3 short blocks. I agree that Post Office Pies ( pizza) and Saw's BBQ are equally great choices. There are lots of restaurants popping up along this street, but these would be my top picks.
