Hey the Melting pot is the melting pot .... its an experience. The kids like it.. the main courses are just "ok" plus you have to cook your own food.. However the cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue are out of this world...I could go and just eat that... Service was a little lacking.......but the server was nice.

The cheese fondue, the meat in oil, the chocolate fondue. We go there a couple of times a year and are never disappointed. The staff are helpful, and always seem efficient. This time we went for the spinach and artichoke cheese fondue - the best we have tried. We always go for the standard main course. Great fun cooking with... More

I've been to other Melting Pot restaurants but this one was sub standard. It smelled bad, potatoes we got were rotten, our waitress tried to be sympathetic but forget so many things, so many times that it became a serious frustration. Will never go back again.

Skip the entrees which are way overpriced and unappetizing and go for the cheese fondue and dessert.

I love this restaurant, is something different, is entertaining, is a very nice restaurant, cozy and very nice, my husband and I have gone many times and I always love the fondue from the appetizer cheese fondue that has many varieties is super rich, then the variety of dishes with shrimp, lobster, filet mignon and chicken are an excellent combination...

I don't like the smell of hot oil while eating. This is just more of a fad than anything else, there is nothing wonderful about it.

Food is good, environment somewhat private which I've always appreciated. Bar tenders are polite and but very poorly prepared, pretty ignorant in their trade, but friendly, they just need to study bartending. Its worth going to. It is also close to magic waters which is always a nice hot tub soak after dinner. Look it up.

A you celerbrating an anniversary, or other special day? The Melting Pot is the answer. The food is more than great, it is fun. Three course of romantic dinning. If you have never enjoyed the Melting Pot, what are you waiting for? Not cheep, Not fast food, just GREAT.

We had never been to a fondue restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Romantic place to dine and a unique experience.

I went there with some friends to have a cheese fondue. I was really expecting something really good but although it was not bad, it was not the best fondue in town as some friend told me. I need to re-visit this place to see if it's better
