Went here for my daughter's birthday with a group of 6. We were able to get 2 cheese options, but preferred the Fiesta over the cheddar cheese fondue. We did end up ordering all 4 salads between the 6 of us house, Caesar, strawberry spinach, and California which everyone enjoyed. Our entrees included the classic (with a switch from shrimp... More

We went to The Melting Pot this past Sunday for my mother's birthday dinner. She had been talking about going here for ages, so we called and made a reservation for 6:15. When we arrived, they sat us quickly, but unfortunately it took them 10 or more minutes before anyone came to us and took our drink orders. When we... More

Stopped here on a rare, cold night in Annapolis for some warm and comfy food. We had a cheese course and a chocolate course. The server was attentive and anticipated our needs. The food was fresh and the fondue was delicious, as usual. We hadn't been here for a couple years and the only negative we found was that the... More

Family dinner gone bad. We came in and sat for 10 minutes without anything happening. Finally we ordered drinks and another 10 minutes went by before the wine appeared. We had two pots going and one pot was hot and the other one was cold. When the meats came one pot would incinerate the meat and the other did little.... More

Just 2 long-time lovers, 4 courses, and I don't want to think how many calories! Service and quality of the food, excellent. We both chose Land and Sea Entree'. Memorable and checked off the bucket list. Everyone should try this at least once. Restaurant needs a good update. That was our only disappointment.

The Melting Pot is my go to meal for very special occasions including birthdays and anniversaries. It is pricey but you can't argue about the dining experience. They make sure to change up the menu and we always love the 4 course with the cheese and chocolate fondue.

There's just something about a fondue pot that invites conversation. Invites laughter. Invites coming together.

At The Melting Pot Restaurant, we offer a dining experience like no other. A unique, interactive dining experience creating memorable moments with family and friends. From the time the first piece of bread is dipped and the last piece of dessert is savored, you'll be graced with the time to discover new things about people you thought you knew. And, those you're getting to know.

We are the premier fondue restaurant where guests can enjoy a choice of fondue cooking styles and a variety of unique entrees, salads and indulgent desserts. It's up to you. Tailor your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie.

Whether you're celebrating romance, a birthday or anniversary - or just a night out while the babysitter is in charge - we offer something truly unique. An opportunity to interact and connect while experiencing all fondue has to offer.

We look forward to your visit.
