When we make dinner plans we enjoy researching our destination. While searching for a "Special" romantic evening we found the Melting Pot. This has been touted by Indianapolis Magazine and Nuvo Magazine as Indy's Most Romantic Restaurant. They have established a few Romantic packages that you should check out. But if romance is your desire, definitely be sure to call... More

Really good! Yes a bit pricy but well worth it! Our waiter Skyler was excellent and very helpful. The filet is my favorite and salad was really good!

Every year at the end of July we come down to Indianapolis for the NASCAR race. We've made it an annual stop while were here. For those never visiting a melting pot be sure to plan for at least 2 hours for your experience! This isn't a bad thing. The time flies by! The food and service has always been... More

Stopped in when celebrating our 2 year anniversary in Indy. Wife had a groupon deal. There was an endless entree deal going on for $40 a person. I wasn't a huge fan of the cheese, it tasted a little bitter. The house salad with house dressing was incredible! With the endless entree selection we were able to taste the teriyaki... More

The chain has added new items that keeps the menu fresh, and we enjoyed several. We really like being offered a healthier alternative to frying in oil. The only negative was that the waiter didn't write down our order, and the cheese course was incorrect.

For couples, there are romantic and secluded booths to sit and eat. The ambiance is dark and fairly quiet. The food is extremely good, but make sure to bring your appetite. The waiters are friendly to split courses to save money. I recommend sharing the salad, so as to have plenty of room for dessert!

Overall I would say its an excellent place to go to once a year or so. The waiter we had was awesome. He spent time at the table explaining the different... More

Went on a date night with my wife. Place was packed, so it pretty popular! Sat at the bar and ate our fondue meal. Kudos to the bartender who was solo, mixing drinks for servers and trying to cover meal service at the rail. We did the four course offering. The food was good and it was something unique. I... More

We had our first visit to The Melting Pot last year, but I did not write a review at that time, although the experience was really enjoyable. Last week we returned and I could not forget to review the restaurant again. It was for sure a pleasant dinner with a highly professional service. We had the 4 course starting with... More
