For anyone who has never experienced fondue, you need to try it. I grew up with home-grown fondue (bread & cheese) and only discovered the true, 4-course fondue experience later in life. The Melting Pot does an excellent job. The servers are friendly, helpful, and generous. And the food is the highest quality. Dippers are everything from filet to lobster to strip, shrimp, salmon, chicken. Not to mention a variety of breads and very creative cheese choices. All very good.
The desert is, of course, the "cherry on the cake" as it were. I do wish they would include more fruits in the desert dippers. Dessert tends to consist of very rich, decadent items like marsh-mellows, cheese cake, brownies, etc. But, if you ask for apples, strawberries, etc, they have always been happy to oblige.
For a national chain, The Melting Pot still has a one-of-a-kind feel and they are perfect for special occasions. If you happen to have a local fondue restaurant, try it out. If The Melting Pot is your only choice, you will not be disappointed.
