“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We loved the Randall Bramblett CD release party. The food and drinks were outstanding, and we stayed at the Foundry Inn. It was a great weekend. Can't wait to go back! The service was also stellar.

“Great place for dinner and show”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Show up early to make sure you get a seat. The fish tacos are my wife's favorite and you wont go wrong with the brisket sandwich.

“Poor Service overshadowed the Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

After a long day at Sanford Stadium and being seemingly turned away at another restaurant, we opted for a visit to the restaurant near our hotel. We were seated immediately. We received our drinks and our order was taken very quickly. After an hour we were finally able to flag down the waitress and get her to stop. We inquired as to our food's status. She checked and we were told it would be a minute and that it would be on the house. As we were frustrated, tired, and hungry, the band of the evening began to play. The band was good (and loud), but we couldn't really enjoy it after the service.

“Great Music Renue”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great entertainment and a great place to grab dinner. Super impressive!!! We enjoyed the performers, loved that they wrote their own music and sang other original work. No place like this for a fun evening and the shows start early for those that aren't night owls. Big plus!

“For a night out, this place has it all!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

The Melting Point is a great place for live music! The food is just as awesome. Every one of the staff was really cool and nice! The bartender upstairs was super cool. Saw James McMurtry here for a really rockin show! We didn't feel like we had to brave the downtown Athens bars and silly college scene. There was no need for it. The Melting Point had it all. The night was perfect. The sampler plate of hummus, etc was great. The only thing I was disappointed about was our nine dollar salad that was really small. We will still return again and again. I recommend this place highly!!
