    I've been going here every week now that I have meetings in Cbus and have never had an issue. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Super delicious as well!

    Haven't eaten here but called and there is cross contamination. Not taking the risk.

    I love Melt!! If you do your homework before you go (which if you have Celiac, I don't know why you wouldn't!) you'll have a delicious meal.

    This place is NOT celiac safe. The server seemed to have no knowledge of what gluten actually is and what the restaurant is claiming is gluten free is riddled with cross contamination and fallacies.

    The serves had no idea what was and what wasn't gluten free. They had gluten free bread but nothing else was celiac safe.

    When was the last time you went into a GF food coma? Melt is certainly a reason to be thankful for GF bread! Staff hasn't been overly knowledgeable on my trips. I'd recommend you know (or ask them about specific ingredients) what sandwiches would or wouldn't be inherently GF. I do my homework when cooking at home, why shouldn't I expect to in a restaurant. No reason to dock them points.

    Great sandwiches. There is a $2 up charge for gluten free bread, but the price is worth it because you essentially get two sandwiches! Staff was knowledgeable and as far as I could see (and hear!) the kitchen follows safe practices to avoid cross contamination. Highly recommend!

    Their food is amazing and they are so good at accommodating gluten and dairy allergies. They have delicious gluten free bread and daiya cheese. My favorite place in Cleveland!

    This restaurant does NOT have a GF menu. All they had was GF bread and a dedicated frier for French fries. Since our server didn't know anything about GF options I asked her if she could send over someone who could help. The server returned with a binder that listed all allergen ingredients in the entire menu. I ordered a burger with GF bread and fries. It's better than nothing but Joe Cool Cafe had better options. It's unfortunate that there are less GF options at Cedar Point than there were 3 years ago when we last visited.

    This is inside Cedar Point. Replaces Joe Cool Cafe. Checked with the manager and they have a GF dedicated dryer and a GF dedicated kitchen space. Most things on the menu are available gluten free. Staff very helpful in confirming everything for us.

    I have celiac disease.... I do not have a sensitivity. The melt does have gluten free bread, however, there is not a dedicated grill or fryer. They serve you fries or "chips" however they are deep fried in the same fryer that the sandwiches are batterer and fried in. Also, my stomach was bothering me later on and I kept having to go to the bathroom. If you are pretty sensitive to gluten. I wouldn't eat here.

    Agree with Jen below, but it is nice to enjoy an awesome sandwich even if it is a little pricy. Past few times I've been they've been able to make the seasonal vegetable gluten free and it tasted excellent.

    They are super knowledgeable and there are lots of options, but you already pay an up charge for the bread then they want you to pay an up charge for not being able to eat the fries, and give you slaw. It adds up real fast with the price of the sandwich plus all the uncharges. They need to accommodate with prices better for those who can't help their allergies.

    The gluten free bread was actually really good. However there are only a couple of options on the menu that don't include breaded items. Though the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Read the reviews here and on Yelp, and on their website they said they strive to keep customers with food allergies safe.... I still got sick. So I won't be going back. :(

    My sandwich on gluten-free bread was delicious and worth the $2 up charge. However, I didn't get a gluten-free menu, but I did review their allergen guide. The guide listed the fries as gluten-free, but from another reviewer I knew to ask..... The waitress clearly knew that they were fried with gluten containing items, so that was good. I personally would like them to update the allergen guide to include noting gluten from the cooking process like frying. Just because the potatoes don't contain gluten doesn't make them safe.

    Can put sandwiches on gluten free bread!! They also use separate utensils and cooking space to prevent cc. Only downside is no dedicated gluten free fryer so no fries :(

    Very in tune with allergies and Celiac. My 7 year old loved her grilled cheese. The Cedar Rd. Melt does not have a dedicated fryer. Super friendly staff. Great Cleveland decor!

    servers were very helpful and knew the gluten free options well. There was an upcharge for the GF bread and for the salad but the slaw was worth it.

    The food here was TOO good! I rarely eat sandwiches any more, and their gluten-free bread was the best I've ever had. They seem conscientous and knowledgeable about separate dishes, etc. Instead of fries, I had a side of cole slaw. I wouldn't call it the healthiest place to eat at, but it sure was delicious and different. Portions are huge, so either share or expect to have leftovers. :)

    Sandwich was delicious and unique. Selection of different sandwiches is great just have to sub gf bread. Staff was helpful and told me their fryers were not dedicated so I had to sub for cole slaw which was also delicious. Would recommend.

    I'm gluten free and dairy free; never thought a grilled cheese restaurant would be my go to restaurant. Staff is very knowledgeable and I've never had a problem. They don't have a dedicated fryer so can't do the fries (they do have alternatives though) but everything else has a dedicated gf cooking area. If you don't like anything on their small menu they do have a large list of ingredients to choose from so you can build your own sandwich.

    A group of friends and I went to the Lakewood Melt Bar and Grill because we called ahead and asked about their gluten free options. We arrived to Melt and after waiting a half hour, ordered our drinks. When the waitress was taking my order she informed me that they do not have gluten free fries so I asked what I could have instead. She said a side salad (typical for my fellow gluten free eaters). After I began to order she informed me that the side salad was a $3 upcharge, after I am already paying $2 more for gluten free bread and getting no fries. I asked for a manager, and when he came out he said all he could do was take $1 off of the side salad. He let me know that just because I had a food allergy, didn't mean I could be treated special. We just wanted to substitute the fries for a side salad for an equal charge. We left right away and the manager didn't even try to stop us. I hope that this review saves another gluten free person from wasting their time at Melt Bar and Grill.

    They do have gluten free bread and a very limited choice of sandwiches. How ever the staff is very friendly and understanding of gluten sensitivity. They make sure your order is prepared on clean and one time use services. They also have an allergen list.
