“save your money - horrible management & service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

I have been to many Melting Pot restaurants and I have always loved the experieince. This was by far the worst experience & I would not recommend this location to anyone. Food was good. And, the service was initially good. However, towards the end of the evening the manager approached our table to ask if we could leave so the server could leave. We had already settled the check & we still had wine. I thought this was in such poor taste. When we were walking out of the restaurant there were two other tables still seated. Maybe if you go early & look to rush through your dining & wining experience it will not be as bad. However, when I told the manager this was a poor practice - he did not care. Clearly customer service is not top of mind for this location.

“Delicious & great service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We are from Miami but we're driving down from Gainesville (roadtrip) and stopped to have a nice dinner during our trip. The staff were really nice and made us feel as if we were back home. Great service and food as we are used to getting from the Melting Pot Restaurants!! Definitely worth the stop and will definitely return if we are back in Ocala.
