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

We've been enthusiastic Melting Pot patrons for a number of years now, and have enjoyed dining at three of their restaurants in three different states here in the eastern USA.. All are slightly different in decor, but you can expect great food and service and a wonderful experience in any of those we've been to and get it; something we... More

The Melting Pot is an event. I've always had great meals at the Melting Pot. It's one of those places where you make sure you haven't eaten all day before you go there - they give you an enormous amount of food, which is always fresh, tasty and filling. Plan on spending a few hours there to enjoy the food,... More

We had a friend give us a gift card and were awaiting for the right moment to go, so my girlfriends birthday weekend was as good as a cause as any. We ended up taking our son along and made reservations for 4pm when they opened on a saturday. It was quiet for a while, then they got very busy.... More
