This is not just a meal... it is a two hour odyssey of flavor. We went for my son's 16th birthday, and we all had a great time. The Spinach Artichoke cheese fondue was a highlight, as of course was the Turtle Chocolate dessert at the end. My entrée was also delicious, The Classic, which has a solid selection of... More

My wife and I made a reservation on a whim because she was in the mood for fondue. Little did I know that we were walking into the restaurant that would be our de facto date night/special occasion spot for life. Firstly, the staff is superb. Our servers are always very friendly and informative, taking time to interact with their... More

I am a frequent visitor to this establishment, usually every two weeks or so. Everyone is always super friendly and the food is amazing! I have a standing request for Lee to be my server. He knows what I order everytime which is awesome so I don't have to ask for extra anything, he just knows. He also put my... More

Mothers Day had a fixed menu for 39.95 PP. their regular menu has a variety of choices. Our spinach and artichoke cheese fondue... More

You should try it at least once to have a different dinning experience. While I am not a fan of the main course portion, I love, love the cheese fondue! We also pop in from time to time just for dessert. The service staff are very kind and nice. I have not had an issue with service here. It is... More

The food here is amazing and so much fun for the whole family! We did the four course meal and it was so good. The preteen kids loved the fact that they cooked their own meal at the table. We choose the hot oil as the cooking style and it was fantastic! The service is great!

Fondue restaurant. Get the 4 course meal and pick your fave menu item in each of the 4 categories. Fondue pots are available in various broths or as oil. Its a lot of food so do not order any extras or you won't be able to finish. We had the "Classic" 4 course option. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable... More

My kids have been dying to try The Melting Pot for years. We finally relented and took them for my 12 year old's birthday. The fondue experience was fun, but the food is definitely not worth the exorbitant price. We might go back for dessert only, but the full four-course meal just doesn't seem worth it.

We have visited several of this franchises in different parts of the country. This one was my favorite by FAR! The manager was named Bea and she was EXCEPTIONAL! Our server was Lee and he did an awesome job! They both made my birthday with my husband and children feel like it was the most important day in the world!... More
