We visited Melting Pot after seeing a Ladies night special advertised. It's located in a Strip mall and the entrance is the bar area of the restaurant. The Hostess was very pleasant and we were seated very quickly. As we walked to our table I noticed the carpet in some areas was a little sticky. Now I'm on the watch,... More

The occasion was a family members 18th birthday. Dipping your food into the cheese bullion and chocolate leads to lots of laughs and makes it a totally relaxed party. Melting pot provides a piece of cake appropriately decorated to the celebrant and takes a picture of the group for her to take home. Great place to celebrate the birthday

This is my second visit to a melting pot, first visit I do not remember much so wanted to get the full experience again. My bf and I frequent nice restaurants because we have a taste for the finer things in life. This location, as I read in other reviews, needs a bit of improvement. The cheese course was delish,...

My husband and I went to The Melting Pot for our anniversary. The food was delicious. The server was great, timed everything nicely, we never felt rushed.

I saw an advertisement for a special for Ladies night 8/31/16-9/1/16 on Facebook. 3 Course meal for $25.00/ person. Also they had $5.00 wines and $6.00 mixed drinks. My girlfriend has also wanted to come here but never has been either. So we took advantage and we were happy I saw the Facebook add. It was nice to get to... More

In one of our favorite restaurants, in their headquarters hometown, this Melting Pot has fallen apart. Let's start with image....please update and clean up this place. Changing a few light fixtures, does not fix chipped scared wood tables and worn out carpets. The staff....I had to show our waiter, obviously young and new, how to open a bottle of wine.... More

This was our first visit and it was amazing. If everyone has a four course meal it is expensive but worth it. My 10 year old niece came with us and she had a fabulous time as well. Dipping her food kept her occupied the entire time. Make sure you leave yourself three hours for the experience. The nice thing... More

Have gone to the Melting Pot numerous times always enjoyed. Had a nice 28th anniversary dinner, however I found the portion sizes have decreased alot. I will still go back, we were a little disappointed but everything changes. Service was good. Food was good. ENJOY

Went here for our 13th wedding anniversary. This is the 7th melting pot location we have been to and we have been going to the melting pot together for the last 16 years. So we know the drill. Our waiter just seamed very confused on what we were asking for to start, then he would just disappear. He did not... More

The service and the food is truly an experience that should be had often. But, due to the nature of Fondue, cooking one piece or a bit more at a time, you will not get in and out quickly. So, although it is great for families, couples it is not necessarily only a special occasion venue, but you will need... More
