Items are priced per person, 4 course meal including: cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert fondue which has to be chocolate is very pricey, it was gonna be well over $100 for two of us. Then to top it off, food is brought to your table raw, you have to cook it and pay the extravagant price. Restaurant is very... More

Our server Kristina was amazing. We went in during happy hour (4-7pm) for 5.00 cheese and chocolate. Very filling, and a great time to try it before spending 40.00 per person on a meal.

I had never been to a Melting Pot before, and requested to go there to celebrate my birthday. The menu is confusing to me, but that's just me. If you are budget conscience, you can definitely get the full experience without blowing a ton of money. I just had cheese and chocolates, and I enjoyed it! It wad definitely on... More

Dined w our three sons. Really like that they take reservations...so much nicer than the call ahead places. The interior is upscale, cozy and quiet. We were hesitant to take our sons but they do well in most restaurants and enjoy trying new things. Our waiter was new and nervous but tried very hard. We all had the four course... More

This is the one place where you can get away from the crowds with guaranteed seating on the strip. It is upstairs and over looks the crowd. The Peddler and Park Grill will put you on a "call ahead seating" list but that is the best you will do and everyone else is no reserves. This is a beautiful and... More

Wife and I ate here on recent trip. Staff very helpful in recommendations. Food is very good, kinda pricey and it does take a while to finish the 4 course meal,it's all about the experience. Definitely recommend. We will be going back on our next trip.

I have been to several Melting Pots in the US. They are all very uniform, and provide a wonderful unique experience everyone should have at least once. That being said I will say you need to be prepared for the bill and decide when/what is best for you. My husband and I have gone to the Melting Pot in Gatlinburg... More

IF you go, be sure to ask for waiter Michael H. and if your experience is not as good as ours, I'll be totally surprised. HE made the experience totally awesome! This guy was more like a personal shopper for the rich and a waiter at The Melting Pot. He walked us through the entire process, recommended each of the... More
