“Very very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Excellent service, warm atmosphere and great food. Recommend sitting in the bar however. Its hard but try and save room for dessert. Also, they are very reasonably priced.

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend. A shout out to Brittany for putting up with our drunken family! Lol.

Little Dipper is a quaint fondue restaurant! Their cheese and chocolates are great! We go there when we want a delicious snack or a meal. Two thumbs up!

“Delicious and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My wife and I ate here for dinner one night. They had a special where you got a cheese fondue, entree fondue and chocolate fondue for $27 (You share a common cheese fondue and chocolate fondue, but each get your own distinct entree-- overall plenty of food). We got a cheese fondue that had beer in it, and you could choose the beer so we chose Guinness since it was darkest of the beers available and had the most flavor. There were many different things to dip into it including bread, veggies, and some fruits. For the entree, my wife got the one that comes with filet, chicken, and shrimp (comes with 3 dipping sauces of your choice), and I got the one with chicken, shrimp, and ravioli and 3 sauces. They give you a card with cooking times for the different meats. For dessert we chose the milk chocolate fondue. There is a good pic on this page of what comes with the desert fondue. The cinnamon graham cracker crumbs were amazing on everything, especially the marshmallows dipped in chocolate. Our waitress was very helpful with discussing the menu and showing us how to do everything, and offered to take our picture. Overall it was a great experience and the food was delicious.

“Awesome this isn't your Melting Pot it's much better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We had an awesome cheese and chocolate fondue dinner. They don't skimp on the servings. I have eaten at the Melting Pot and this was sooooo much better. There are 3 different choices for the chocolate fondue dippers. I loved the options for dippers and chocolate. The cheese varieties available for the cheese fondue is outstanding and different. We didn't have the main course selection but it's definitely something I would like to go back and try. The atmosphere is wonderful and so is the wait staff.
