Our Story

About Twisted Meltz

Twisted Meltz is a family owned and operated restaurant. We are an American traditional restaurant serving 25+ gourmet grilled cheese, soups, salads, appetizers and craft beers. When you’re finished with that, we have a variety of Ashby’s ice cream flavors, shakes and sundaes.

We’re proud of the high-quality eats our kitchen produces every day. We serve all natural meats and cheeses and have gluten free and vegan friendly options.

Twisted Meltz opened Jan 2014 in downtown Kent, Ohio. We seat up to 55 people in our restaurant offering a close, but not too close, friendly dining experience . Owner, Steve Tannous, has great passion for creating a fun twist to America’s favorite comfort food. It’s not just a grilled cheese, it’s a Twisted Melt! Our meltz are coined after famous KSU alumni and you will be surprised to learn of all the famous names out of Kent. We have a friendly and energetic staff here at Twisted Meltz with a majority of them being students of Kent State University. We hope you enjoy your visit!
