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.

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

We went here because we got a gift card for our anniversary. When I called to make the reservation, the guy I spoke to asked my name for the reservation and then specifically asked if we were celebrating something and I said yes, our anniversary. He said that's wonderful and asked what my husband's name is, so I told him... More

Daughter's 35th birthday dinner - she loves cheese and the restaurant. I like cheese but was concerned about the value. Ridiculous. But that's what she wanted. Mistake #1 (Sometimes Dad DOES know best.) Wait staff very good, but they don't have much to work with. 1st course cheese fondue. Not quite as good as the fondue packets available at the... More
