We have been to the Melting Pot more than 6 times. Usually a special occasion. This time we were celebrating a few family member birthdays. The food is always good with high quality. As you know the fondue is an event. Great family time with our 5 daughters. This time, however something was different. The customer service was top notch.... More

I was overwhelmed with comments from the staff congratulating me on my promotion (with out even telling them why we celebrating). They went over the top to make sure our night out went perfectly. Very fast service, amazing 4 course meal, and friendly staff, what more could you want?

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
