When your out of town friend returns for a visit, the Melting Pot is the place to go. While a bit pricey, the experience is worthwhile. Enjoying conversation without feeling rushed - that's what it's all about.

Where do I begin? I went to the Melting Pot with my mother and a good friend. We all qualify as senior citizens and so have issues like not being able to sit comfortably in a booth. Interesting that this Melting Pot location has only one - yes, you read correctly (1), table that is NOT a booth. Instead, it... More

We got the four course meal for two ($40 per person). The food as always was very good. It was a nice treat as we have not been to the Melting Pot in a few years. The cheese course was small, when they brought out the main meal we thought they made a mistake and brought out just one of... More

Particularly love the (Swiss) cheese fondue and all the trimmings (bread, apple) - my personal favorite. Chocolate fondues are sheer decadence. Filet mignon in bouillon broth a tasty (and healthy) dining alternative. Service good. Great "just because" or for special occasions. Fun for friends or a perfect venue for a romantic date.

We did the four courses, which are salad, cheese fondue, entre, and chocolate fondue. The first course was the salad which was simple, but tasty nothing special. The second course was the cheese fondue we... More

Beth was our waitress and she was great! Took the time to explain things to us and made excellent recommendations. She was quick and friendly. We ordered the couples special, I believe it was called Big Night Out for Two. We started with the Wisconsin Trio, it was perfect. We liked it best with the apples. Our salads were great,... More

This is a wonderful place to visit on Valentine's Day. The service and food were great. I recommend the Wisconsin Trio to real cheese lovers. It gets a bit crowded on V Day, but other than that, the atmosphere was pretty good.
