We have repeatedly tried this restaurant and find it to be very overpriced for the lack of quality in its offerings.

Yes, the food is amazing and the staff sets the tone for a relaxed experience. My husband and I visit on special occasions and when we want to take a break from the hustle of some of the loud, fast paced tourist haunts. We can always get an exquisite meal, turn our phones off and focus on eachother.

My husband and I dined here in November 2015 so the restaurant was fairly empty for a Saturday night in this tourist town. We were greeted immediately by the hostess and taken to the bar until our table was ready for us. Our server, Paxton was amazing! When I explained that my husband was hesitant to try the Melting Pot... More

This was my first visit to the melting pot. I had no idea what to expect. It was very nice. The ambience was nice. The staff was nice. My only complaint is that my salad was drowning in ranch and very salty. I would definitely come back. I enjoyed the evening.

We ate dinner here this week. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was very good. We had the 4-course experience and this is what I would recommend for a couple. Someone else had recommended that we do dark chocolate and amaretto for the dessert and this was wonderful!! Recommend for a special celebration... More

I suppose this is a typical melting pot restaurant but I cannot help but wonder why one would go there. The food is very expensive considering what you get, the location is in a strip mall with no view. Again why go there if you are in one of the prime seafront tourist locations in the US?
