We skipped the cheese portion and shared the three choice meats between two people. With the desert portion each this was plenty of food! The desert was amazing!

This is a great date night for any couple. My favorite is the beginning and the end. Cheese fondue with the yummy breads and chocolate fondue with the tasty fruit (strawberries are fantastic!). FYI: when it's time to cook your dinner, put the potatoes in first! They take the longest (I always seem to forget...) Great place for some quiet... More

Our older son just turned 12 years old and asked if we can go to the Melting Pot. My wife and I have been there many times for our Anniversary and/or Valentine's Day. We started the night with the Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese fondue. Very creamy and tasty. My youngest loved dipping apples into it, while the Birthday boy loved the... More

Celebrated a big family birthday with 12 in our party. Wait staff kept up seamlessly. Menu is eclectic and consistently excellent. Melting pot is ideal for a longer sit-down experience as course after course of fondue entrees are tied together with ease. World-class!

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.

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!
