We ate here again for the first time in over 10 years. My daughter picked this place for her recent birthday. I cannot see any other reason to come here but for special occasions and gatherings. The menu has vegetarian selections and the server accommodated our needs. We chose to do the cheese fondue and dessert fondue. Skipping the entree.... More

I went to the Melting Pot to celebrate my friend's birthday. They had a birthday card signed by each employee waiting on the table, so that was a nice touch. We chose to do the full experience and try every course. The cheese fondue was amazing, but the meat was a little disappointing. It took a long time to cook... More

If you've never been to a melting pot- run! Find one now, drive to it, with your honey or your friends, you'll love it. This location was in a quaint shopping center and seemed to be well run. We had a great server and the food was delish. Plan to spend some money and plan to be stuffed like you've... More

My wife and I visited the Melting Pot for my birthday. While she had been more recently with some girlfriends, it was our first time together in a few years and there were a few changes such as more menu options which was nice. We had a spinach and artichoke cheese fondue for starters which was good. Then came salads... More

Celebrated my Birthday at The Melting Pot a few nights ago and had a wonderful time! My friends had never to a Melting Pot before and I had never been to this location. We all had a great time, left stuffed and I think we are going to make it a regular outing for our group! So Much Fun!

Four of us went for a relaxed dinner. For was very good. We were in no hurry because it took three hours for dinner. Would go back.

We went to this restaurant over the weekend to celebrate a birthday and as we were early, we sat at the bar area to have a cocktail and didn't even have to wait a full minute before someone came to our table to take our drink order. As the rest of our party arrived, we were seated right away and... More

This was my first time here at The Melting Pot and this location was just beautiful in the elegant old building. Years ago I used to go to a fondue restaurant, but had not been to one in ages. The service was excellent and the food exceptional. The meat and fish were so fresh and tasted so good either raw... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time in many years and it will probably be the last. The best part was the cheese fondue; however, for a group of four they served it with a small bowl of bread and we had to ask for more. We each ordered different entrees which when served required a variety of cooking... More

Great food and fun because we cook the food in a fondue pot. Had to stop with 3 courses being too full for the Chocolate desert. On the expensive side.

Thank you so much for spending such an important celebration with us. What an inspiring accomplishment to be together for so long. My advice for the future would be to sacrafice some of the dairy in the beginning for that chocolate at the end. We realize that you have many places in the area to choose from for such a... More
