I took my husband here for his birthday and we both got the 4 course meal. First a selection of cheese fondue with breads, next a wonderful salad, then on to the meats with broth. We got a mix of surf and turf with dipping sauces and it was a-mazing! Then as if you aren't stuffed enough- on to the... More

Overpriced restaurant. The quality and quantity of the food were not equal to the cost. Quaint setting. Would not return, sorry.

Wait staff a plus. Wine and fondus are all wonderful. Quiet corners available to allow quiet chatting or boisterous laughter :)

My kids love fondue so we went in at 4:30 just for the cheese course. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We chose cheddar cheese, but the melting pot would have accommodated us with 2 pots if we wanted to have 2 different types of cheese. Our entire experience was great.

I'd heard about the Melting Pot for years but had never been there. A dear friend was celebrating her 60th birthday and she inexplicably loves the place so that's where we took her. When we walked in the hostess asked, "Cheese and chocolate?" My friend said yes and we were shown to a table. I assumed from that exchange that... More

At the Melting Pot we offer four courses. Cheese fondues prepared table side, fresh salads, entrees prepared table side with fresh vegetables and an array of dipping sauces and chocolate fondues with a variety of decadent dippers. We never want anybody to leave hungry and portion the experience with the intent of that not happening. If a guest needs extra... More

Having both gluten and dairy dietary restrictions, we figured we should be safe cooking our own food. We were very pleasantly surprised at the Melting Pot. Our server was so helpful and even brought over the manager to help. We felt we had hit the jack pot when they told us they had dairy free cheese and chocolate! They even... More

My husband and I went to celebrate our birthdays. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Jordan, our waiter, was exceptional! He was very professional and friendly. We were not rushed during our meal. We enjoyed the entire experience and will definitely go back!
