My daughter, granddaughter and myself went to the Melting Pot for lunch. We had so much fun. The server was outstanding and made the visit so enjoyable. This isn't an inexpensive restaurant, but it's worth the price. Must go with group, more the better. We went between Christmas and New Year's as they were open for lunch.

I always enjoy coming here. It's is a good value for your money, heck no, but really is that why you come to this kind of place? No way. You come for a relaxed evening. And don't forget to have a mojito! The food is fine, the cooking styles are fine, the wait staff is well trained, the place is... More

We've been going to this Melting Pot every 2-3 months for at least 5 years now, and consistently have a great dining experience. We like the intimacy of the small booths in the back and being able to spend 1.5 - 2 hours leisurely enjoying our meal. The Fiesta Cheese is our favorite and the servers will bring extra dippers...

This place has some of the best service, best food, and best atmosphere in Fredericksburg. It's a chain, however the owner is usually always on site, and stops by the table at least twice. High marks all around!

My reservation at The Melting Pot was at 6:45 on a Friday, and although business was steady our server Joshua was still extremely attentive and personable. The food was great and the environment was private, but the best part about my experience was really our server. Keep in mind that it can be pricy, but there are plenty of deals... More

This is my go to fine dining location. The staff here is always attentive and professional. This is the only place I go and enjoy cooking my own food!

For family night it was a tad too intimate in atmosphere. I would recommend special occassions with close friends like couples night and in a mood for fondue. They had a coupon and was a first time at this type of restaurant. Was fun treating the in-laws to a meal.

We went here for a date night dinner. It was great! My husband had never been and he really enjoyed it. It took us about 2 hours to get through the meal but it was fun so it didn't seem like that long.

Ate here with a group of 5. A bit of a hassle to understand menu options that include multiple options for upgrading and adding to the meal, but you really need to know how the ordering works, BEFORE you eat there. You have to pick cheeses and dippers and salads (not fondued) and entrées from the right section and type... More

As you likely know, The Melting Pot is a chain, but franchises do differ. This location has had consistently good service during the three times we've visited. The fondue is always very tasty and there are many selections for each of your courses; both for the fondue and the foods to be prepared. I wanted to call note to this... More
