The MP is tucked away in central Towson near Towson Town Center. The dim lights make for a very nice, romantic atmosphere and help garner a sense of seductivity and seclusion. I had never been to a MP before and was admittedly not expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall taste and quality of the food albeit... More

If you're a man - you will be annoyed by this place and probably leave hungry. People who like to cook their own dinners probably would prefer to be in their own kitchen rather than at this place, Too much fuss with mediocre results.

This was the first time I've ever been to a "Melting Pot" I enjoyed the experience but if you are one looking for tons of food this place is not for you.

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.
