They're talking about the original location in Lakewood. The CP location isn't going to open until the rest of the park does.

Actually, we can start docking boats a month from today.

Wolfbobs, Melt Lakewood is closing for renovations, it will reopen in about a month.

I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks,
than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

ohhhh, well i live in Independence, we got a Melt, i dont think its anything that special really but i know im the odd one out there

I don't think it's anything that special either. And it is really not good for you, really high in fat and calories. We have a Melt on campus and I have something from there occasionally, but I wouldn't fit on MF anymore if I made a habit of it.

Exactly, so it's not really closing. lol That was my point. To me closing is never opening again. A month without grilled cheese isn't really a big deal. :)

I heard it closed last night.

That just doesn't make sense.

Have you never seen a Closed sign on a restaurant?

I'll put it in language that a CP "enthusiast" can understand..... closed as in the familiar sentence "Top Thrill Dragster is CLOSED due to mechanical and\or weather issues". That is a temporary closure. Or "Mean Streak is CLOSED due to RMC". That is a permanent closure. Or "Cedar Point is CLOSED for the evening. That is a daily closure.

"Geauga Lake was closed by Cedar Fair" what kind of closure would that be?

Missed a full season at CP for the first time since 2007, maybe Sandusky will be back on my travel list next year.... Depends what CP has up their sleeve for 2023.

Please give me some closure on this topic.

Sorry, one more thing. Just saw another headline on Hot Sauce Williams on Carnegie closing for good. Now that is a permanent closure. What an iconic eatery.

Dam. I go to BOTH of these spots. If you ever had eaten a Polish Girl from HSW, that is a memory in itself. I remember when Melt (in Lakewood) was the White Door Tavern a little over 10 years ago. We would frequent there during our lunch breaks from my employment close by...Good times. Yes, that Melt in Lakewood needs a renovation, it was small to begin with and not expanded by much later on.

Well, you’ll have that when a place is brand new. Not knowing if it’ll take off, if they can pay the rent, all that. Now we know and they can afford it.

Red Alert! Red Alert! Old thread re-visited.

Just a note regarding a news story I just saw. Melt is closing two of their locations, Canton & Dayton. CP is safe for now.

Columbus’ Short North location closed a little while ago as well. I don’t know about Easton.
Another casualty.

^Super big bummers. We are Pittsburghers but absolutely love the Columbus area, and at least once a year come hang out over there. We were last there last year for Tori Amos. Melt is one of those things that I thought would blow up and keep expanding more towards us here in the Burgh.

I’m not sure what happened. It was gang busters at the beginning and ripe for expansion. Well, just look at the number that are now closed. It was a cool concept and the stores’ look was clever and fresh. But I think people in general tire of giant food- those sammiches were huge and there was so much bread. We didn’t go very often for that very reason. I understand CP’s version is somehow separate from the corporation. I ate there twice and those were the only chances they’ll get from me. Terrible.
And we should always remember and never forget the effect that the pandemic had on the service industry. So many restaurants just aren’t making it anymore. Staffing, supplies, and inflation shoulder the blame. The number we’ve lost just astounds me.
But please come back to Columbus. We still have a lot going on even without ol’ Melt.
