The hostess was very accommodating, we had to call and change our reservations due to the other half of our party having car issues. Once we got there, she sat us immediately. We ended up not being happy with our location because we were in a room with 2 other tables, both of which had crying babies. (i have 5... More

It is an awesome place for dinner, our kids had a gala time, specially the chocolate fondue was something to die for! In case you are not conversant with fondue, the staff is patient to explain you the intricacies so that you enjoy every moment of your time.

When we arrived we asked for a seat by a window. Young man told us he would have to check to see if one was available. Then he told us we could not be seated yet because he had to check to see how far along the food was before he could seat us. "It was the rule." He appears... More

We've dined with the Melting Pot multiple times and in several locations, but we've never been so pleased as to go out of our way to review it online. We were eating here for our wedding anniversary. The entire staff that evening brought us a signed card to celebrate, we were given a gift (above and beyond), the food was... More

We were celebrating our 35th anniversary, and the Melting Pot team was phenomenal. Rose pedals adorned our table, our server was amazing and an anniversary card from the Metling Pot team added that extra touch of excellence. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

My family and I were taking a day trip to Gatlinburg and decided to pop in to the Melting Pot for lunch. We were told at 10 minutes after opening that they had too many walk ins to accommodate us. I will admit that I had on a baseball cap and yoga pants due to the nature of our day... More

We made our way to The Melting Pot to celebrate a birthday. We'd never been, but we'd done enough research to know what to expect. If you want a memorable dining experience, this is the place for you!! We ordered two 4-course experiences, The Fondue Fusion and Good Earth Vegetarian and we had one Create Your Own Experience with Ahi... More

My wife and I took our honeymoon to Gatlinburg and the Melting Pot was on her top list to do because of the chocolate fondue dessert. I was a little skeptical eating just cheese and chocolate for a whole meal and the prices. I looked into the entree portion so I kind of knew what to expected...my wife did not.... More

Went in here late (around 9pm) just for chocolate. If you like dark chocolate, you'll love this!!! The only thing I didn't like is how dark it is in there.
