We went to dinner for our wedding anniversary at The Melting Pot and everything was wonderful. We had all the 4 course and even dessert which was very filling. Next time no dessert for me. I was way too full. It was so much fun enjoying the fondue with a nice glass of wine. It was not a cheap dinner and cost around $136.00 without a tip. It was a special occasion for us and I have always wanted to go there.
We had a Groupon coupon for $55.00 which was suppose to be half price and they took off $107.35 instead of $109.70 but we paid extra for dessert which was $17.00 for a chocolate fondue and a special sauce for the food which cost $3.95 so we actually paid with the coupon $85.66 without the tip which was $26.00 extra.

We visited for our 21st anniversary because of a suggestion from a friend. We asked for Lindsay and got her even though she was not supposed to be in our area, I think. She was very helpful in helping us choose the different selections. We started with the spinach artichoke cheese dip. OUT OF THIS WORLD. Then we each got the Caesar salads. it was very good. I got the French Quarter and was a little shocked at how little meat came out. But the selections were awesome and flavorful and as tender as they could possibly be. Then we went with the dark chocolate and caramel with rock salt. I do not like chocolate all that much but it was very good with the strawberries, rice crispy treat and the cheese cake. I do not know if it was the length of time you took between courses but by the time I left I was very full.

NO matter what you choose its great. Expect to spend over fifty dollars for two. But you will spend a nice evening with dipping breads in bubbling cheese sauce made at your table. Following are the veggies and small cuts of meat cooked in hot oil right at your table. And don't forget desert like fruits dipped in piping hot chocolates. A fun entertaining time for a night out in Ocala.

This place amazes me that it is still open! In this economy, even people with good 'taste' in eateries and the money to spend are avoiding it due to the COST unless it's a 'special occasion' and it's still way too much money for Ocala.

We went to celebrate my Mothers birthday and the return of my son from Afghanistan. As a party of 8 we were catered to with absolute attention from our servers. They were full of information on the foods and techniques in getting the full enjoyment of the 4 course meal. Pure pleasure, and so delicious!
