We went in for dessert (a group of 4) and ordered 2 pots of chocolate. When we received our bill it was around $44. They were trying to charge us 9.95 per person instead per pot. Nothing on the menu says it is per person. We then asked why the bill was so much. Management came over and was extremely... More

A fun experience, but not worth the money. You don't go there to eat, but rather to have a fun time. The food is subpar.

I did the full fondue experience which meant cheese fondue, salad, entree fondue and chocolate fondue dessert. Everything was delicious. The staff from manager/owner to waitstaff were very attentive and accommodating. This is only the second time ever I have been in a Melting Pot restaurant and the responded to questions and checked in with me to make sure that... More

We went here one evening to celebrate our daughter's birthday. It had been a long time since we had been here because the prices are really high and frankly ANYONE can cook the same food a lot cheaper at home. However, my teenage daughter had always wanted to try it so we decided to take her. When we first arrived... More

Yes, it can be a little expensive but it's worth it if you've never tried. Don't be in a rush, take your time and enjoy the 4 course experience. Try to save room for dessert. It's easy to fill up on the initial cheese fondue with bread and vegetables.

Absolutely wonderful experience! Food was fantastic, service was great! I had been to a MP in Pittsburgh and wanted to treat my family to a special dinner to kick off our vacation. They were very impressed and can't wait to go back.

Had a pleasant hostess seat us. The server took really good care of us. The manager actually came around a few times and I felt he was being too much of a "mother hen." One time to check if all is well is fine; more than that too much and intrusive. Food was great.

My wife got sick at the Asheville, NC location 10 years ago. We should have stayed away forever. The Fredericksburg location was no better. I was the one to get sick this time. I was on the commode half way thru dinner. Then at home and three times today at work. When we showed the waiter the Bug doing the... More

My first visit and everything was great. Sean served us and was fantastic. We got two different entrees so we had a good variety. I can eat and I left stuffed, bordering on a food coma.

Everthing was explained clearly and we did not feel rushed. Quality of food was great and atmosphere allowed quality time and fun with my teenager.
