Worth it for a special supper

Nice slow paced supper that takes 2 hours if you do the 4 course supper which i reccomed. Your not rushed to eat and get out to go spend your money on the strip like other restaurants. High quality food, very fun as a couple. Yes a little expensive but worth the trip and experience.

I have always heard the Melting Pot was so amazing. It was a neat experience, but too much work for just okay food. We didn't love it. You get enough food (and its expensive). But, you do all the work and it's not very relaxing. I do all the cooking at home. Don't want to do it when I go... More

Go for $5 cheese & cocktail happy hour. You will be able to get the experience without having to pay full menu prices and the service was good as well as the food.

My husband and I have never had fondue and thought it would be fun to experience something new while on vacation. I am so glad we chose this melting pot location! Let's start with what everyone wants to know about, THE FOOD. Everything looked absolutely delicious, but we chose the four course experience which we highly recommend. We had classic... More

Stopped in to just get some fondue. Fondue was very good. We got the pure milk chocolate and the foods that came with it was strawberries, bananas, pineapple, marshmallows, rice krispy treats, brownies, etc. Atmosphere is definitely more upscale and fancy. Dark lighting. Service was also great!

Great place to eat and provided a little class to what was a basically classless area. A little pricey but our waiter helped us order so it really was not that bad and we enjoyed a very nice and different dining experience

We had a great time the service was excellent, the food well prepared. This was our first time at a Melting Pot and did not know what to expect.

There's nothing bad you can really say about the Melting Pot. It *is* a place for special occasions, because it is hugely expensive. This is the second time I've been to this one, and each time it has been for a quiet anniversary dinner. Plan on three hours, but you might get out in two. PARKING. Both times now, we've... More

I believe the happy hour time is 5-7pm. Cheese and chocolate are $20 each and are large enough to make a meal out of the two. If you ask for a booth by the roadside windows, its a great view of the parkway. We had amazing service during our visit!

We love this place. As usual the food was wonderful. The service was exceptional. Ask for Meade. He will ensure your food journey is spectacular.
