My husband and I went on the evening of 10/3 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had never been to the Melting Pot before. We first arrived and they had a complimentary valet service which was great!! We went in and they seated us right at our reservation time. Once seated, our server came by and introduced herself and explained... More

"Dave Russell was absolutely fantastic. He not only knew exactly what flavor combinations to recommend, but he made the entire experience perfect. We had a wonderful romantic birthday and he was not overly involved but helped to make a very memorable evening. Thank you Dave!"

For many years this was me and my ex-husband's "go-to" for special occasions for just for a truly private dinner and evening. It was ALWAYS wonderful and now equally so with my boyfriend. Bar tender, Tyler, is awesome and so welcoming, it made my meat-lured boyfriend choose to get side dishes just to stay at the bar! I'm single with... More

I've never had a terrible experience at this location. The staff and service are great and the food is exceptional!! I've been more than 10 times. It's always a special deal to go during restaurant week!

Came her for a graduation dinner at the graduates request. The entire experience took 3.5 hours and an incredible amount of explanation to order properly. Be prepared to spend $50 per person easily. Cheese fondues were creative as were the chocolate dessert courses. Each person was happy with their main dish. I did not do the full four-course menu but... More

I decided to treat my good husband to dinner at the Melting Pot. I have had numerous surgeries in the past 6 months- and he has been with me thru the thick and the thin. I invited another couple-long time friends- to come celebrate. I cannot remember when I've had a better time. We each tried different items and shared... More

Brought 3 teenagers for a night of over indulging. The food, atmosphere, and service were awesome. The only negative was no sweet tea.

We ate here the other night with friends and took advantage of their "Tuesday Double Date Night" Promotion. The concept was OK, but I wasn't really impressed by the food or the service. The food was average by my experiences. The table for me seemed to be at an odd height (or my chair was too low) to feel comfortable.... More

It's hard to believe that The Melting Pot has been on Kings Drive for 25 years! During that time, we have become known as a favorite restaurant by many in Charlotte and the surrounding region. We have built a solid reputation of phenomenal service through our expert servers, knowledgeable bartenders and our attentive managers. In fact, our regulars drive to our restaurant year after year from as far as Hickory, Asheville, South Carolina and even Virginia just to get their "Melting Pot fix." Make us part of your tradition, too! As for the fondue experience, well, you just have to try it for yourself. It's dinner and entertainment all stirred into one! While you can choose which courses you'd like, most guests indulge in our 4 course dinner including cheese, salad, entree and chocolate. Our creamy cheese fondues are prepared tableside. Each cheese is served with artisan breads and seasonal vegetables for dipping. Our fresh salads feature The Melting Pot's signature dressings. Customize your entree to your specific pallet, as entree items and seasonal vegetables are cooked at the table in one of our four premium cooking styles and a plethora of dipping sauces. From Thai peanut marinated tofu to filet mignon, we've got an option for everyone. For dessert, try the Yin & Yang chocolate, Flaming Turtle or choose from many other delicious options. And don't forget our famous Garlic and Wine Seasoning and signature chocolate covered strawberries to take home. The Melting Pot is a unique place to celebrate the special occasions in your life. Our Midtown location is known for its secluded booths and seating areas which are perfect for date night or double date night. Our quiet, intimate atmosphere offers a romantic place to sit close to the one you love. One of our recent guests said it best: The Melting Pot is "a great place to spend quality time because if you get a complete dinner, it will take about 2-3 hours." (Jeff R. Charlotte, NC, Trip Advisor, 3/14/2013) We also offer large party areas for milestones, birthdays, ladies night out or work celebrations. The Melting Pot is a cozy space to catch up with family over fondue without interruption. It's also fun to bring your kids, dress up and make a special night out of dinner- just because! Did you know that The Melting Pot Charlotte is vegetarian friendly and gluten free friendly? All of our menus can be customized and our servers and kitchen staff are happy to cater to any dietary restrictions or allergies without missing a beat. The Melting Pot naturally offers many healthy and lower calorie options as well. Regardless of diet, we want all of our guests to indulge, guilt free, and have the perfect night out. Whether vegetarian, carnivore or somewhere in between, our wide variety of menu items will leave you happy and satisfied. We are located right across the street from Little Sugar Creek Greenway and Uptown is minutes away. Fondue is the perfect precursor to seeing a ballet or Charlotte Symphony performance at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. It's also fun to bring the kids in for cheese and chocolate after seeing a movie at the IMAX theater at Discovery Place. Or come in for four courses after a day at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Mint Museum, Levine Museum of the New South or the Harvey Gantt Center for African American Arts and Culture. We are close by Bank of America Stadium where the Panthers play football, and right around the corner from Time-Warner Cable Arena, where the Bobcats play and soon-to-be Charlotte Hornets play basketball. Uptown Charlotte is also home to Checkers Hockey, Knights Baseball and Hounds Lacrosse.
