We were 3 colleagues having the 45$ menu, starting with a cheese fondue and appetizers, followed by a meat fondue with 4-5 different meat types, ending with a salty chocolate fondue, recommended by the waiter himself. Very satisfying!

We go once or twice a year for anniversaries, special occasions, or because we have a Groupon. Usually, we will get the 4 course meal. Cheese fondue (bread and veggies), salad, entree (meat, veggies, and potato) and chocolate fondue. A leisurely meal is typically around 1-1/2 hours. My favorite is the cheese fondue. The booths offer a little bit of... More

My wife and I spent celebrated our anniversary there and it did not disappoint. We have been there 3 times and each time we have enjoyed a great meal, excellent service, and warm environment. If you have the chance, ask to be seated in Lover's Lane. There are small booths, with a curtain for some privacy.

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

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!
