We visited the Melting Pot in Gatlinburg on Monday April 13, 2015 and again on Thursday April 16, 2015. They offer a Happy Hour menu of cheeses and chocolates for $5 per person from 4pm to 7pm Monday thru Friday. This was the sixth Melting Pot that I have visited and as always the food and service both were excellent!... More

My daughter and seven of her friends made a reservation at the Melting Pot based on an online ad for their Senior Prom. The service was horrific! It took almost 3 hours for their meal to be served. When the check was FINALLY delivered, the price was more than the quoted price, the manager told the kids the online price... More

Thank you for providing your feedback. We are sincerely sorry that tax was added to the ticket. The meal was supposed to be $29 inclusive and unfortunately our system automatically added the tax. Our assistant manager discussed refunding the tax or upgrading the framed photo to our premium frame with the party of seven. We understood that the party wanted... More

The food at the melting pot is always good, i just hate how long the experience takes. My wife and kids really wanted to go here as the kids have never done fondue before so we thought it might be a cool experience. Half way through i think they lost interest in it and just wanted to eat. Also be... More

Weekly, some friends and I have a girl's night out - so each week we choose a different restaurant. Tonight was the Melting Pot in Gatlinburg. I wasn't sure what to expect other than I knew it was a fondue restaurant. For the cost of the meal ($142 for 3 of us), I was disappointed. The food was average -... More

If you want an unique place to celebrate any special occasion this is it. It is not just going out to eat it is an experience that you take part in that makes it special. They have the cheese and chocolate fondues but its much more than that. Also don't forget to add the lobster tail its worth it.

A wonderful fondue restaurant..you cook your food in a fondue pot at your table. A bit pricey but well worth the experience. The food is delicious and you can choose how many courses to enjoy. Started off with cheese fondue as an appetizer, then a beef and seafood entree and finished with a chocolate fondue. Service was excellent and our... More

Our anniversary & 1st visit we wanted to try something different. We sort of knew what to expect like cooking our own food, but didn't know the meat would be stewed. Shrimp & pork was good, so wrong to boil filet! Enjoyed all the sauces. I feel the tables should include some type of clock since you have to time... More

The food was amazing as always but we went on my birthday and the service was ok the server seemed very distracted as he was bartending too. Like this one but the atmosphere in Knoxville is better.
