Tailor your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie. Make reservations today, and see what people are talking about.

Great for the group

This was our first experience with any fondue restaurant but the folks at the Melting Pot made it a very enjoyable experience. Sort of like a hibachi restaurant in that everything is prepared in front of you, but you also cook your own food - which sounds intimidating at first,but the staff does a... read more

Great for couple to celebrate. Excellent cheese fondue and chocolate fondue. We skipped the meats cooked in oils and had 2 cheese fondues. It is quite expensive.

I don't know where to start this review. We were headed to the late show of Garth Brooks sat night. Always looking for a new place to eat, my sister in law suggested "The Melting Pot". Having never been, we were more than up for going. I made reservations for 7:15 because the concert wasn't starting until 10:30. We figured... More

We knew the cost before going. We chose to go for dessert only. The food and staff both were good. The wine list is very unimaginative to say the least. I think my expectations were too high.

Great food. The server was very helpful. It was our firsf time. When we left I looked online at their website. They had a lunch special which would have saved us $40. Next time I will ask and check online before ordering.

the Melting Pot is my favorite restaurant! Food is great as well as the atmosphere! Be prepared to spend about 2 hours there if you do all 4 courses.

This is the third Melting Pot we've eaten at - and perhaps the least satisfying. They all follow a set process, and we usually enjoy the whole experience. Somehow this time it seemed forced and formulaic to the point that we did not feel as relaxed. The courses felt hurried - I was asked at least 3x if I was... More

ALL of the accolades and praise for Jason behind the bar who made our late night visit for dessert and drinks absolutely phenomenal.
