I hosted a bridal shower at the Melting Pot and the entire experience was awesome from my first phone call to make the reservation to when I walked out the door!! Mikki was our server and she was outstanding! The food was excellent. We had the Cheese, Salad & Chocolate option. We had plenty to eat and a fun time... More

Perfect for a special occasion as a couple or with friends. This is not a place for children. Plan on spending at least 2 hours here which is perfect for a good conversation, but not for dinner on the go. Reservations are definitely a must for holidays and weekends as they can be very busy. Week nights are much less... More

Prices are more expensive than the typical Appleton restaurant: $30-50 per person depending on what you get, alcohol is even more. BUT the food was excellent - small, often unlimited plates of veggies, meat, fruit, bread, etc for the fondue sauces which ranged from cheese to chocolate. Our server was the best I've had in Appleton in years - Patiently... More

I made a reservation here with my husband weeks in advance for our 1 year anniversary. At first I thought it seemed really nice and fancy with their heavy menus and nice table and booth. We did use a Groupon which is the only way to afford this place just about. I had the Cesar salad which turned out to... More

I went here with a fairly large group, and got one of the 2-burner tables for all of us to sit at. We were seated quickly (we made a reservation) and all got our drink orders taken right away. I went with a Mojito, which was very good, and quite refreshing. We had a coupon for the 4 course meal... More

Loved it! Went there for my birthday with my boyfriend and we had a great time and ate delicious food. They even gave me a birthday card signed by the staff members. :) We went for the cheese, steak, and dessert courses which were all great but the meat was a little pricey for the small portions that we had....

It was a fun experience to have all your food prepared at the table. Even with a groupon it was very expensive for just average tasting food, with the exception of the great tasting dessert. The spinach artichoke cheese fondue was good, but had too much garlic in it. The dippers of ordinary tasting crusty bread, plain grapes and raw... More

We visited this location for the first time for a fun experience to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The staff was wonderful and one in particular went out of his way to give her a bag of goodies. We were very pleased with the service. So much so I wrote review(first timer). They truly made it an "experience" for our daughter.... More

The melting pot is all about creating an experience with good food. We typically get the 4 course plan of cheese, salad, main course, and desert. Every cheese we have ever tried is wonderful. The main course is fun because you can choose how to mix a meat selection with one of many sauces. Desert is a must! And don't... More

Food was delicious, well seasoned, using top ingredients, & interesting variety of dips & drinks. Staff friendly, well trained and helped make the all around experience great. Date type atmosphere (dark) but could barely read the menu. one went on trust that things were clean, but all seemed to be in good order & very well presented. Our bill for... More
