My wife and I decided to splurge for Valentines Day this year and made a reservation to try this place. The server was pleasant and professional. The menu was limited due to the Valentine's Day event but it offered a nice sampling. My wife works in the restaurant industry and she was extremely impressed with the quality of the food.... More

So for years I have heard about how great the Melting Pot was, and my wife mentioned about going a few times, I knew it was quite expensive but it was our 3 year anniversary so I wanted to treat her. She can be a picky eater so I double checked their menu online and saw at least a few... More

My son was in town for college break and I wanted a place to have a long conversation. Hadn't been to the Melting Pot in a long time but had wanted to try out their new menu. They've added new types of cheese fondue and have an expanded range of near fondue to suit everything from vegans too hard core... More

I have been to this location probably more times then anyone has for the food with my wife and family. They know me as the only guy who always is buying champagne. So the owners make sure they have my Moët and Chandon at all times. I'd say I've been there on average about once a month for a few... More

Another fantastic anniversary dinner. No offense to the other servers but Lisa is the best! She had a trainee with her, Jenn who was also great. You owe it to yourself to give this establishment a try. I'm not sure the manager Brian ever leaves. He is always walking around making sure everyone is happy.

All of the staff at the melting pot on Paxton street were very friendly and helpful to make our first fondue experience a great one! I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to broaden their horizons. 10 out of 10 for sure

We bring my wife here each year for her birthday and do have dinner a couple times throughout the year!! My son is always along and they even offer a small kids meat plate for 10-11 dollars. It is a great place for dinner and a fun family experience to go through the different fondues and cook your food. Highly... More

It's a great place to go if you've never been. My daughter and I had a girls night and the server had the heat up to high on the fondue burner, we had the tempura so it was a pot of too hot oil on the table... Everything we made was getting burnt and staying raw in the inside... When... More

This was a special treat for my sister's birthday. She was wished happy birthday by 4 different staff members, which was really sweet. They also had a card waiting for her at our table when we were seated. The food was delicious & so fun to have all the options to dip. Allow 2 hours minimum to really enjoy if... More
