I'm always coming back

I have tried many types of fondues there and in my opinion, the bests are alpine cheese and pure milk chocolate!!! the service is very good, they are not a fast food, so go with time. They will prepare the meal at your table. Very good and yummy!

We had the appetizer cheese course with cheddar cheese and it was wonderful. I loved the apple bits in cheese. Fondue for the main course was okay but really all the various meat comes out tasting the same. Dark chocolate fondue for dessert was great but I would ask for more fruit and less cake and marshmallows.

We haven't been to the Melting Pot in a very long time, and one evening had a hankering from some ooey gooey cheese. So, we went to the Melting Pot on a whim. They were very accommodating with our unscheduled "out of the blue" arrival. Our waiter was amazing and had great suggestions of pairings. Overall, it was an excellent... More

If you've never been, you should know before you go that there is one pot for the whole table, so the table has to agree on certain things, such as what kind of cheese, what kind of sauce and what kind of dessert. Everyone can then pick their own kind of meal. It's a great place to talk and get... More

We did an endless fondue deal (Granted it wasnt, only endless entrees) we didnt get to pick what was in the entree, which half of it, we really didnt eat. And after we asked for another round of the meat we did eat and another bowl of vegetables, our broth evaporated from waiting so long and all the bits and... More

Very nice atmosphere. Service was excellent. But I probably won't do this again. Food was not that good, sauces were salty. If I wanted to cook my own food I would of stay at the house. But if you are down for a good experience and something different. I would recommend this place. But for taste of food and quality......stay... More

We went to this establishment for the first time on a Saturday with reservations for 4:30. Our server was excellent (this definitely makes a difference), very friendly, personable, and walked us through the menu (which is daunting). The meal was very good and we were stuffed well before the dessert. A couple of comments I've noticed in other reviews speak... More

Foundue with fresh ingredients, good service and nice atmosphere. We tried cheese, meat and chocolate foundues. They were all delicious. The table has its own cook top to heat the bowls, its very fancy! I'd come back!

It started with the yummy Ying Yang Martini. So, if you are on a diet, then this is not the place for you. If you are a lover of cheese, seafood or meat and chocolate, then this is the place for you. There were five us of celebrating a work accomplishment. We had terrific service. We like the atmosphere at... More

Great date night place as almost every table is a booth and semi-private. Plan on coming hungry and spending time to enjoy the experience. You have plenty of time to converse while you dip tasty bites in your cheese fondue starter. Then on to a simple but refreshing salad before the main entrée which you cook yourself in middle of...
