Fun but expensive

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... read 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!

What a joke, you have to cook your own food. They told us the wait would be 45 min. We waited for over an hour. Never coming here again, don't know why women love this place

While we liked the offerings, the amount of food you get for the price leaves you hungry. Went for a special occasion and probably will not frequent very often.

Everything about the experience was outstanding. Our server was friendly and efficient. The options for food and cooking mediums were superb. I absolutely loved the variety of sauces--they were so tasty. And the chocolate---OMG. It was our son's birthday dinner and the staff gave him a signed birthday card and everyone wished him a happy birthday--very nice touch.

This was our second time eating at this location and we really enjoyed it. We came for a romantic 10th anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. We requested private seating when we made the reservation which made the experience so nice. Just like the first time we went, the service was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful.... More
