Perfect for a special occasion

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.

Our party of 6 chose the Melting Pot to celebrate a birthday. Most of the party had not been here before so it took some time to figure out the menu. The server was helpful but not to the point where we felt we knew what to order. A gentleman at the next table overheard our confusion and suggested the... More

We go here several times a year. The food and service is always fantastic. Nice selection of drinks. We always are full after eating here. The whole fondue experience is fun, but be prepared to pay. Make a reservation. Try the Lovetini.

First the hostess and manager highly recommend reservations no matter what day. The experience lasts 2-3 hours, so it can be to be seated without reservations Luckily, we were able to get in right at opening. Our waitress was training and seemed to really enjoy her work. She was very informative about the process since it was our first time... More

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

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
