This was a special treat for my sister's birthday. She was wished happy birthday by 4 different staff members, which was really sweet. They also had a card waiting for her at our table when we were seated. The food was delicious & so fun to have all the options to dip. Allow 2 hours minimum to really enjoy if... More

We've been enthusiastic Melting Pot patrons for a number of years now, and have enjoyed dining at three of their restaurants in three different states here in the eastern USA.. All are slightly different in decor, but you can expect great food and service and a wonderful experience in any of those we've been to and get it; something we... More

We've been going to the melting pot for the 8 years it has been open for anniversaries birthdays or any occasion. Always have a great meal and great service and Brian the manager really makes sure everyone is having a great meal! Would recommend it for a great night out!

The Melting Pot is an event. I've always had great meals at the Melting Pot. It's one of those places where you make sure you haven't eaten all day before you go there - they give you an enormous amount of food, which is always fresh, tasty and filling. Plan on spending a few hours there to enjoy the food,... More

We had a friend give us a gift card and were awaiting for the right moment to go, so my girlfriends birthday weekend was as good as a cause as any. We ended up taking our son along and made reservations for 4pm when they opened on a saturday. It was quiet for a while, then they got very busy.... More

We came here for my boyfriend's first experience, and the food and service were both lovely. We are both in the service industry, enjoy going out and actually getting great service. The staff delivered just that, from the door to the bus boy. We will surely be back soon. Great drinks, lovely atmosphere, and amazing service! Thank you.

Our server Katie was absolutely wonderful! She was very attentive and engaging. A mid-sized party, our group was about half/half experienced with Melting Pot but none had been to this location. Our cheese course was delicious and we were brought extra bread (definitely try the pretzel bread!) and fruits. Entrees were also loved all the way around. I had the... More

We've only been to this chain once before years ago. Family members like to go and we were invited to join them. Our grandchildren under age 10 were present and did well with cooking. We did the 4 course dinner starting off with the cheddar cheese. They are currently running a charity dinner with the profits going to cancer so... More
