I just LOVE cheese and I love to try them all. Salads are excellent. Who can resist melted chocolate?

The Melting Pot is a place to go with people that you really enjoy being with. Besides the fact that the food is great, a meal at the Melting Pot takes no less than 2-3 hours. That leaves plenty of time for enjoying time with your dining partners over a simmering pot of fondue.

The food and atmosphere are delightful and service is excellent. Allow plenty of time to enjoy the meal though. This is not something to be rushed. It is an experience.

Visiting with a relative while in town, the pace and experience gives a lot of time to catch up on happenings. The staff was very patient with Fondu Novices, as well as their attention to detail with our order since one person had a sensitivity to certain foods. The manager personally came to the table a few times to ensure... More

I have been to The Melting Pot multiple times and have never been disappointed. When my husband and I first tried it several years ago, I didn't understand the fondue experience at all and wondered why we were paying so much money just to cook our own food. But dining at the Melting Pot isn't a normal night out....it's a... More

The food was good. Lee was one of the best servers we've ever had. He was attentive and professional. The price was appropriate for the courses. We were celebrating our sobs birthday.

This is a nice place to go if you want to linger over dinner. There are many choices for each course so you can experience a variety of flavors and they can accomodate gluten free dining restrictions. Our particular waitress was fairly efficient but seemed a liitle awkward and unpolished. The portions are adequate but not ample. Just by nature... More
