Fun alternative.

It's all fondue. It's a fun change but not a go to favorite. It's very social because you share the fondue pot. A good choice for a family or visitors. The restaurant is a little dark. The staff is not very friendly. One gets the sense the owners are a bit uptight.

The Melting Pot is part of a limited chain. It's a great experience, especially if you order the 3-course meal. Just be prepared to make a night of it - it could take up to 3 hrs. to get through. Each course is fantastic!

Pretty much all Melting Pots are the same menu wise, so one knows what to expect, but tonight's meal was painful to experience. Our party of 6 waited about 20 minutes to be seated - with a reservation! Then waited about 15 minutes before a server came to the table. Soft drinks came at a normal pace, but the 2... More

If you enjoyed fondue in the day then you'll enjoy eating here. Six of us were celebrating Mother's Day here and shared several dishes.

We went on a Saturday night at 5pm and left at 7pm. I've been to Melting Pot about once a year or so, and I've usually had a wonderful experience. But it seems like lately, the experience has been going downhill. The experience was nice and quiet, very relaxing, until 6pm on the nose. Then several large and loud parties... More

"Our server Mike went above and beyond the call of duty. My Fiancé really loves the old bay cheese fondue, however it wasn't on the menu anymore. Mike still made it for us anyways. When it was time to choose the chocolate, I wanted flaming turtle but my fiancé didn't, so we chose a different kind of chocolate however our... More

My friend and I went to dinner at the Melting Pot because she received a gift certificate for Christmas. This was a restaurant that people had said many great things about so we were excited to try. I made a reservation for 7 and we were seated around 7:30. The waitress was very nice and she explained how to order... More

A fun way to eat some good food. Fondue everything. There are many choices, and a slow, relaxing atmosphere.

Allow time. Savor each course ... starting with cocktails. Don't rush thru it. Try to leave space for the dessert fondue. More than a meal .. make it an event
