Dining Out: Melt Bar and Grilled in Mentor worth the (long) waits

There are several reasons people might not like the new Melt Bar and Grilled in Mentor.

When they remade the former Mexican restaurant into a cavernous single-room dining area with high ceilings, the place got really loud. Good luck conducting a conversation across the table, with the conversational din and Muzak playing overhead.

Then there’s the legendary wait for a table. Make no mistake: You will be waiting to eat at Melt. How long depends on when you show up. They’re honest about it when you walk through the door. They’re also remarkably accurate. There’s plenty of space for you to sit down.
