Made a quick reservation on a Monday night, was quickly seated in a very comfortable and semi private booth. We have been here before but it has been several years so our server was very helpful and quite entertaining. We forgot this is a Dining experience and takes about 2 hours to complete a four course meal. No problem, it... More

Have wanted to come here but never seemed to get there until now. Service was great and as new to here the waiter explained the process excellently. The menu was easy to understand and had good offerings. The full experience will take some time but so worth it. I got the meat lovers and the other people with me got... More

Couples night, we had so much fun. Our waiter was great. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. The only down side was how long it took to eat with 4 people. We only had 1 fondue pot so we had to agree on the sauces. I suggest not going with someone who has different taste in food... More

Great decor and friendly staff. Nice wine selection. The experience is unique and fun. Yes, by cooking everything in one pot the flavors run together & for what it cost [about $40-$50] per person - I would rather go to a nice steak house. Overall a good time and experience - it's just something I would want to repeat very... More

I was nervous to find out we had to cook our entrees but it turned out really well. Scott was our server and he was AWESOME. He did a great job of explaining the options and styles.

My daughter requested Melting Pot as her choice to celebrate her 24th B-day. She drove in from Terre Haute for this meal. We made early reservations for 4:30pm on a Saturday and were seated quickly and our waiter, Michael visited our table within minutes. He questioned us to make sure we were familiar with Melting Pot ( and we were,... More

The waiter was good but that was it. Did not care for cooking all your food in one pot. We thought the food all tasted the same. You get a little bit of food for a big price. My husband left still hungry because he did not care for what was there to eat.

In all the years this restaurant has been in operation, we had not visited until this past weekend when we were able to take advantage of their 40 year Birthday deal of $60 for a Four Course Price Fix menu. We took the only reservation spot left for the night (9:30) which had us mighty hungry by the time the... More

They have a Valentin's day special that comes with the works for $235. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly. This is my second visit to The Melting Pot and I look forward to the next.
