Get the cheese

We had the four course meal and it was awesome, but spendy. We liked the Wisconsin cheese the best. And the chocolate fondue was amazing even though we usually do not get desert. I would get the cheese and desert combo next time and skip the Thomson course. The menu is confusing and it is... read more

My daughter and I went to The Melting Pot early on a Friday night. Since it was our first time, the waitress went above and beyond describing everything to us. I wish I remembered her name (Victoria? It began with a V...I think). Anyway, they had a special for a four-course meal for two so we went with that. Because... More

We had an excellent experience enjoying a 4 course meal. Our server -Christian- was excellent and paced our meal so that we could enjoy our meal and take in the Melting Pot method. Glad we took the time to enjoy a leisurely lunch.

We went there for my birthday. We took two teens who had no idea what Fondue was. It was great, the food was fantastic, one teen at first complained about having to cook it herself but that changed once she got the hang of it. The other just went for it. The cheese sauces were great, the Cajun sauce for... More

We've talked about trying Melting Pot for a while now based on multiple recommendations from friends. Mother-In-Law was in town for Thanksgiving and we decided that was the perfect occasion for a visit. The evening was excellent in every respect. The menu is overwhelming but the staff is very helpful and attentive. Not a cheap evening by any stretch but... More

This is more than good food, it is a time to relax because you cannot rush this meal; sit back and enjoy the company of the people you came with. The wait staff are remarkable, knowledgeable of all items on the menu as well as preparing various choice options. Speaking about choices, there are several to make and because everything... More

The food was delicious and the service was great. WE had a 7:30 reservation, but I would go earlier next time so there was time to slowly savor all the courses.

We have visited this restaurant several times in the past few years. We have had the pleasure of celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and Mother's Day here. The manager goes out of his way to stop at each table to check throughout your visit. On Mother's Day, each mom was given a gift in addition to the wonderful meal. We love the... More

My wife and I went for our 13 th anniversary. We have decided that it is a place you go for the expierence not so much the food. Even if I were rich, I would not visit this place every year; much more enjoy somewhere like carrabbas or outback. We have the dinner for 2 for $60. Dinner started off... More

I eat here every chance I get. From a romantic anniversary dinner to a great night out with the ladies. Last night we had a lady's night out for their endless cheese and chocolate night. We had eight crazy ladies. I do recommend you make reservations. The owner here is wonderful and truly cares what his customers think. One of... More
