Lots of great southern comfort food!

If you are hungry and feel like some great comfort food, go here! You will get more than you can eat and be satisfied for hours. The fritters were outstanding... We sat by the window, nice view of the river.

This was our 10th anniversary dinner and it was perfect. We stumbled upon the restaurant when we arrived in town. We put our name in for a table, went to the hotel to change, came back and had the cheese fondue with salad followed by chocolate fondue. Everything was delicious and great portion sizes. Our server Yana was personable and... More

This was one of the cleanest and nicest restaurants on the strip. Our Server Andrew did an excellent job of explaining the menu and seeing to our every need. If you want something niceer and different try this location out.

Overheard another table that it was their first time and the server to the time to explain the service and provide them with a great... More

The melting pot is always extremely expensive. That being said if you can afford at least 50 a person than you can have a feast. Fondue is fun and interactive way to eat out. I would recommend everyone to try it at least once.

Been loving the Melting Pot experience for many years now and this location is wonderful with service and food. Be sure to ask NOT to be seated in a corner booth as you will hear the word "corner" every time the staff passes by. We thought it was hilarious, but some partys could be disturbed by the multiple repeats of... More

Our anniversary fell during our trip to Gatlinburg/Great Smoky Mts. Our first foray from the Hampton Inn took us to the Melting Pot's front door. We love this restaurant (eating experience) and no longer live near one. Made our reservations for 4 (our travelling companions had never been) and noted our anniversary celebration. Menus given upon seating and we started... More
