My daughter has always raved about Melt! (attends TTU) Finally my husband and I decided to visit - WOW! I had no idea there was such a classy place in the depot district. There was a live band playing and they were wonderful. What amazed me was the mix of patrons...Tech students and people like my husband and I. The waitresses were always smiling and everyone was happy with their service. We only had drinks and appetizers...the martinis were wonderful!! and the Tuscan Dip was marvelous!!! I cant wait to eat dinner there!
Every time I come to Lubbock I try to stop at Melt. The food is consistently top notch and the service is impeccable. I never write reviews but the meal I had last night is worth raving about. The bacon wraped fillet was to die for and quite possibly the best steak I've eaten in Lubbock! It was paired with potatoes that were fried to crispy perfection and a vegetable combination that tasted fresh from the garden.
Every time I have visited I have had one of the owners greet me to insure satisfaction. It seems like that is what has led to their success - a personal hands on approach that is sadly rare in restaurants in this day and age. If you've never been, it's a definite must!
Lucky for me, the first restaurant we stopped at had a 45 minute wait for seating, because we decided to try Melt again. I'm so glad we did! (After our 2nd visit, our first was for lunch, and was also wonderful.)
This is a classy place with great chefs! The atmosphere is urban elegance with romantic lighting. I LOVE the aquarium and the enormous red velvet curtains. This place is perfect for parties of 2 or 20.
The food is awesome. I tried the special the last time we dined there. I had a veal chop with fried potatoes and asparagus. The veal was so tender (and juicy) that I could've cut it with my fork. Like butta! The asparagus was crisp-tender, perfect. It was $33 but hey, it was also half of a cow! (The chop was huge)
I will be back again and again.
Melt is a great place to eat, drink and socialize with friends. Wonderful atmosphere and live entertainment on certain nights. Also, Wed. evenings they have salsa dancing. If you haven't tried it, it is a must.
Great place and location. Is an upscale lounge/bar with great drinks and food. It seems to attract a more marure crowd, and some college folks, but with everyone dressed to impress. Nice music and atmosphere, and unlike anything else in depot district. Reminds us of upscale places we visited in Dallas. Lubbock needed a place like this! Thanks! The manager also took great care of us, as did the bartender and staff!
This bar is great! Like nothing else in Lubbock! Seriously, there were so many hot chicks in this place...dressed to the 9's...it was as if management had flown these girls in from Dallas or Houston. There was a good mix of ages...from hot college chicks to hot moms! And the General Manager...took great care of us...and she was smokin hot too.
This is the best bar in Lubbock. It has a very classy atmosphere. The music is great and the food is delicious. This is the perfect place to have a drink and meet interesting people. Melt is by far the best place to visit in Lubbock's Depot District.
If you are looking for a romantic place to take your loved one, a good place to have a drink, and a wonderful dining experience. This place is all of those and more. It has the atmosphere of a uptown New York bar. The food there is fantastic. You feel like a world renown chef is preparing your food. Not to mention the service is great. Lubbock needed this bar.
