Good meal and experience

Wish I had her name but my daughter and I sat at the bar and had the 4 course and got excellent service from the lady at the bar. She was so nice and if I went back I would ask for her because she stood out with great service and friendly. Would have been happy with just cheese and... read more

My husband and I went in for dessert at 9:30 (the restaurant closes at 10). The host was rude and too busy doing paperwork to seat us. When we were finally seated, they took our drink orders promptly but we waited 20 minutes (while watching our waitress walk by many times) before we left. As we were leaving, we saw... More

This was a first for our family and we were with another family. Therefore we had a group of 10. We called ahead with a reservation time of 8:30. There's no waiting area inside so we stood out on the porch. Threre were only a few chairs but they were already occupied. About 8:45, we checked about our reservation. Hostess... More

If you have never eaten at The Melting Pot, this is a "must do" experience. We had a group of 5 of us and there was so much food. We could not believe the amount of food we had. It is a great atmosphere for visiting as it is about a 2 hour eating ordeal. The service staff was fantastic... More

Love eating at the Melting Pot, but it is a treat for my family. We only eat here when on vacation and try to find one always. Even though they have seafood, since you cook your own food it is easy for an allergic person to eat here. Love it for me because I do not get to eat in... More

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
