Our server was the wonderful. The food was good and the company was great. Plenty of courses and choices for a filling meal. But make sure to save room for dessert!

We were visiting family last year (July 2013) the week of my birthday. My husband took me here for my birthday. We had wonderful service and the food was amazing. My favorite was the dessert! The small dessert was more than we could handle. I can't wait to visit again.

We had a TON of FUN! Even though the barmaid was TERRIBLE. Food was "OK". Plan to spend some time with the menu. Pick your cheese, pick your salad, pick your "entree" cooking broth, pick the food you want to "fondue", and pick your dipping sauces.

I shudder when I hear the words melting pot. I could never ever go there after having fresh fondue. This place is THE PLACE for fondue in town! Candles lite the place, cubbies, hidden away tables, wonderful concoctions of cocktails, and the best fondue I have ever had.

My husband and I heard about this through the owners of the B&B we stayed at. It did not disappoint. I can see why it is one of the top 100 restaurants in the country. It is a unique dining experience that makes for a fun night out. The waitress was super friendly and knowledgeable and the food was excellent.... More

Excellent service, warm atmosphere and great food. Recommend sitting in the bar however. Its hard but try and save room for dessert. Also, they are very reasonably priced.

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend. A shout out to Brittany for putting up with our drunken family! Lol.
