We really enjoyed this. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Salads were good and the cheese and dessert fondue experience really quite different and enjoyable. The atmosphere was nice and the dining halls are nicely separated to keep the noise level down.

My wife and I ate here when they first started their Fondue Across America which included a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Cheese Fondue, A Lobster Roll Salad, New Orleans Cajun Style Fondue main course and New York Cheesecake Fondue Dessert. The food and service was both very good, although the New York Cheesecake Fondue was fantastic at first, but after... More

The location of this Melting Pot brand outpost is pretty solid in a decently safe area of Harrisburg. The prices, as you would know if you've been to any other 'Pot brand locations, are high. Expect to pay at least $80 for two people, more if you get alcohol and more if you are here during a special menu or... More

If you enjoy fondues, the Melting Pot enhances the experience. We have been to the Atlantic City facility so a family member wanted their birthday dinner at the one in Harrisburg. We get the 4-course menu which starts with a cheese fondue, salad, entree of different meats and seafoods and then the chocolate fondue dessert. There are multiple choices of... More

If you like to fondue, this is the place to come. You are able to order from a wide variety of seafood and meats for the main course but they also have yummy appetizers and decadent desserts. The wine is a little pricey but there are some good choices. To save a little $, order from the group menu where... More

Me and my wife went for our anniversary, made a reservation and were seated promptly. A nice card for our anniversary was on the table, a nice compliment. All of our food was top notch, our server was A1 and this was our first time as only recently hearing about it. This is a place where you can expect to... More

My boyfriend and I love going to The Melting Pot for date night. However, if you don't make a reservation in advance, be prepared to be waiting - until 9pm. We prefer the tables/booths that are nestled in the corners. Nice and quiet. Dim lighting. Perfect. We usually just stick with the cheese, and maybe will share an entrée. The... More

Celebrating here is a good idea. There are SO many choices of how and what to eat at Melting Pot, everyone can find dishes they'll like. Too many choices and ways to eat, however, are a little confusing. But when you get through that part, putting the uncooked pieces on your sticks and placing in the fondue pot is a... More

Wife and I tend to go to the Melting Pot for special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.. Other times when ever the mood strikes us. One of our favorite places. Servers are friendly, well versed in the preparation and service of the food and very accommodating. Brian the manager apparently knows us, cause we've been there so often. Makes you feel... More
