Visited when we were in town on our honeymoon. We'd never been to a Melting Pot but figured we'd try it out for a change. They tell you ahead of time that the whole experience takes about 2 hours, and they aren't kidding! BUT, it really didn't feel like 2 hours because you're constantly doing something or eating something different.... More

Our waitress took extensive time to explain the intricacies of the Melting Pot to us and the best way to order. The food was good, although the beef could use a bit more flavor in my opinion. We also couldn't figure out a good way for my husband and I to order seafood when he eats it, but I don't... More

We visited as an early Mother's Day. We were seated right away at our reservation time. Our server was very knowledgeable and courteous. The food and portions were excellent.

The Restaurant is in a new development area. It is new but looks like it's cheaply built. Food and service are great. The experience is worth the money.

My husband finally asked them if we could get in for dinner. One finally looked up and said do you have a reservation. We said no and she said... More

We've been to Melting Pot at least a dozen times and we've always enjoyed our food and drinks. It's a change of pace and fun to dip you food and desserts into fondu. Everything about the Melting Pot is great, but the service can be hit or miss. We were running five/ten minutes late to our appointment and we called... More

Sort of a fun concept, Different fondue options and flavors. Some in hot oil, some in hot stock and some in cheese. Different things to dip, meats, veggies and breads. I might want to try this again.

A lot bigger inside than it looks from outside. A little more open than other melting pots, which have more private seating for their tables. Worst part of experience was the wait. Had a reservation for 3:45 pm, did not get seated until 4:08 pm. Front desk manager look confused and flustered. Was writing all kinds of things down trying... More

Austin was fantastic. He kept checking on us to see if we needed/wanted anything. He explained everything well for my mother who had never been to a Melting Pot before. The Wisconsin Cheddar cheese selection was very tasty for our first course. I had the house salad w/ house dressing as usual (I think there is something addictive in the... More

The food is always consistent and a fun experience. We visit the Melting Pot a few times a year and tonight I wanted to write a review because of the service. It is Restaurant Week here and I had made reservations at 6:30 pm for Saturday night and knew the restaurant would be very crowded. When we arrived we heard... More
