He was very pleasant and new the menu well, so he was very helpful with my questions. Food and timing... More

My husband and I drove up from Chattanooga to Knoxville to enjoy a romantic dinner at the melting pot. The food was great as well as the service. We highly recommend.

I've eaten at The Melting Pot several times at several different locations. This time wasn't that great. Our waiter wasn't very attentive and didn't make the cheese course accurately. It was runny/soupy instead of gooey. The chocolate course wasn't that great either. Maybe he was new. We left feeling that we didn't need to go to any Melting Pot for... More

My family and I went to the melting pot to celebrate my moms birthday and had a great dinner! There were six of us and a few had not been to a melting pot before but our server Danielle went over the menu with us to make sure we understood everything! During dinner we never had to ask for refills... More

My husband and 2 kids went for his birthday! The food was super good! Fiesta cheese was the bomb. We got the 4 course meal! We got the flaming turtle chocolate, yummy! The waitress was awesome! Loved it! It's just expensive, but worth it.

Interesting experience, although a little pricey - be aware the cooking method adds to the cost of the entree. The Melting Pot offers an intimate atmosphere, competent servers and a good variety of quality meats/fish to choose from. You'll have to do some work to cook your own meal, but that's part of the fun :) My advice: wait for... More

Maybe it was the great recommendations from friends and family in other parts of the United States, but our first experience at the Melting Pot (Knoxville, TN location) left us extremely unimpressed with the interior atmosphere/cleanliness. When you are paying a decent amount for dinner (~$50 per person without drinks) you expect not only the food and drinks to be... More

Our meal was exquisite. Our server Will was respectful of our evening together and always nearby. The Wisconsin blend cheese was to die for. The kids LOVED the chocolate. We will be back!

This makes our 3rd trip & we enjoy this place TOTALLY! Service is always above & beyond. This past weekend's trip was to celebrate my son's 16th birthday. We made reservations & let them know of his special day. There was a hand signed card with the staff's well wishes for his birthday on the table when we arrived. The... More
