Best Fondue ever

This is one of our favorite places to eat every summer when we go to the beach! We've been going here for 8 years! It's a fun experience every time! Love, love, love the chocolate turtle fondue!! Can't wait to go back!!

Absolutely great food and a fun experience! We always have great service! They have little "cove" like rooms if you want a romantic dinner spot away from everyone. Great drinks too!

Warning here: this was the only restaurant we visited during our Destin stay that you really need a reservation. We got in but waited well over an hour. We waited at the bar and had a drink but the bartender didn't have or didn't know how to make the first 2 drinks I requested. Finally, just settled on a coffee... More

This was our first experience at a Melting Pot restaurant and we were completely disappointed. Our waiter was good, but it was the entire food presentation and the prices that were shocking. In order to get a "full fondue" choices (anything other than cheese), the prices started at $39.00 per person. I am not sure what you would have got... More

I'd never been to any kind of fondue restaurant before but I was a big proponent of fondue back in the late 60's. Reliving that experience is what drove me to this location while on vacation in Destin. When you enter you are first struck by the intimate feel of the restaurant. Tall backed booths maintain the intimacy and the... More

This Melting Pot provides a pleasant atmosphere with great food and service from the time you arrive until the time you leave. Jessica was my server this particular time and she was just an example of the professionalism of all of the staff there. A+

My anniversary is on valentines day & my husband took us to the melting pot since I had never been. what a great experience we had, private seating, flowers, dim lighting, Glenn our waiter was excellent! The whole night was just perfect. It was pricey but well worth every penny. We will be back again!

They were very small portions they included one bowl of Vegetables... More
