We ordered traditional fondue for two. The cheese had no flavor, there were two small stalks of cauliflower and broccoli that looked old and wilted, a half of apple cut up and bread pieces that were bigger than bit sized. The service was quite nice, the fellow tried real hard. We did not even order dessert. No thanks, not again.

My husband and I went here for a romantic dinner. It was hardly enough food to call dinner and definitely not romantic. We arrived a little early and asked to wait at the bar and when seated we were still at a booth near the bar. We would have preferred to be in the back of the restaurant with low... More

Our granddaughter loved the fondues as did I. Both the cheddar and pure milk chocolate were yummy. My husband felt the portions were very small for the price & I agree. At $21.95/person for 2 fondues & salad (small) the value left much to be desired. Our waiter was lovely and accommodating and offered my husband another salad without candied... More

The original Melting Pot started in 1975 in my hometown of Maitland, Florida so I have been visiting Melting Pots for a long time.....our visit to the Gatlinburg Melting Pot did not disappoint. Melting Pot was the choice of our granddaughter for her 10th birthday dinner. I called and made reservations and there was a coupon in one of the... More

My husband and I went to the melting pot for our 2 year anniversary. We called ahead to make reservations (definitely do this)! When we called, we are usually asked if we will be celebrating a special occasion. However, the hostess didn't ask this. She just took our information (name, dates and how many), and hung up the phone. It... More

Service excellent! Alcoholic drinks.......not sure there was much alcohol in them. Appetizer course was good but not awesome. Entree course was quite lovely, we selected the land and sea, spinach artichoke ravioli, and a kids beef, chicken and shrimp. The dessert we chose the s'mores, highlight of the meal.

Having only been to a Melting Pot once before (Orlando) and loved it, decided to give it a go again with the family while on vacation in Gatlinburg. My 8 and 4 yr olds loved the entire experience. Because we had 5 in our party, we got to have two fondues for each course, so it was great to get... More

Absolutely the most amazing dinner experience ever! Food was to die for! The pairing of the selection of meat, fish or poultry with dipping flavors was incredible! The love martini is amazing! Everything was good. The dessert was of the charts. The staff was by far the best I've ever experienced. They basically waited hand and foot for us. There... More

This was out first experience with a Melting Pot and it was a great one! We had a great waitress who filled us in on everything including the Cheese and Chocolate Happy Hour choices. They were extremely affordable! Otherwise it was a bit too pricy for us with a group of five. Definitely going to go back again!
