This place has closed! told you it was too expensive for our socio-economic area! Our small city has a reputation that if you have 'bad' press (or word of mouth actually) regarding consistently good food, and also service that is negative, you won't last long!...More

It is a sad shame that they are closing because The Melting Pot was and is an awesome experience. Yes you will need to skip paying your light bill for a meal for two but it is so worth it. Extensive food and wine menu...More

I ordered a $75 gift card online to be sent to family in the Ocala area for Christmas. The Melting Pot never sent the card. Now I have to spend time tracking down a manager and trying to get my money back. Furious.

The Cesar salad was the smallest I have hand in a few years. The fondue was also very small. The taste was OK. The service was good. The restaurant was almost empty and run down. Would I go back? Probably not.

It was a great night with friends and family and the staff there are great. They're extremely friendly and you feel really welcomed. The food is great everything from the salad to the chocolate. You leave there with a full belly and a happy smile.
