We celebrated our wedding anniversary here with our family of 4 ( 2 boys ages 11 and 16). It was a excellent experience. Our server, Rashard, was the best in all areas...knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Our dinner tasted amazing! Yes, it is pricey, but it is the boys favorite restaurant. We had the 4 coarse meal but you can always... More

We hadn't been here in awhile but to be honest I was more impressed previously. They had given me the original recipe for the cheese fondue. Since then they changed it and the new recipe isn't nearly as good. We all commented on the fact that the "new" cheese fondue wasn't very good at all. Also if you get the... More

Great fondue selections. The chocolate fondue was the best. Left feeling not overstuffed. Server was very pleasant.

We were here for two great hours and in no way did it feel like it. We got the 4 course meal and each course tasted great. Being Military we have eaten all over and this place is absolutely in our top 3. The staff was extremely nice, never felt pressured to hurry, our waiter Dominic was one of the... More

I have only had the full three course experience twice and both times it was good. I usually go in to the bar for happy hour. The menu is well-priced and good for a meal or snacking. Still a bit pricier than an average happy hour, but that's because it isn't an average happy hour. The bartenders know how to... More

We visited this last month for our anniversary, and it was absolutely excellent. We did have a reservation, and the only glitch was the long wait before we were seated. We had a great cheese fondue for starters, we went deluxe with the entree, and finished with a simple chocolate fondue, which were all to die for. The only complaint... More

I had been to a melting pot before but had never had the four course meal. You must go starving to enjoy. What a fun experience. We had a table of seven so had to agree on our sauces. The first course there was a bit too much bread and not enough apple but the cheese sauces were excellent. Salads... More

First off, you have to reservations- you will wait hours if you do not have one. So plan ahead! The bar area is great to wait in, but drinks are pretty expensive so be careful. Most of the waiters are very knowledgable, I just wish the menu had more options. Pretty much the only option is to get the four... More

We bought a Living Social coupon for The Melting Pot because I had always heard about it but had heard that it was spendy. I had always wanted to go there and was very excited. We called for reservations and was offered either 4:30 or 8:00 so we chose the earlier time because we're old, ha. We got there and... More

Friends of ours bought the $96 Groupon dinner for 4. My wife & I had eaten at the Melting Pot previously & thought it was ok. We decided to go with another couple as we heard it’s more fun with friends. First off you have to go by their guidelines on choices for dinner or pay extra. Cheese fondue was... More
