I've had my fair share of good Fondue and these folks no nothing of neither goodness nor fondue. Their schnapps is almond flavored and ruins the cheese. Traditional cheese fondue is 7 cheese with real schnapps. Not very good at all

I was in this Melting Pot another time and it was a great experience. NOT this time It was very disappointing. I brought my brother and his wife for a goodbye dinner as they are moving away. First I had a social living deal but guess it was just salad and an entree. Whatever. So we bought the cheese fondue... More

I celebrated my birthday here and they made sure it was very special. You can order ahead of time dipped in chocolate strawberries presented in a lovely box and oh so yummy. Our meal was excellent and the cheese fondu mmmmmmmmm! Very excited to return for another meal. Price is high but so worth it.

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
