I love the melting pot but this one was terrible. We were asked if we had reservations and there where only 4 tables occupied. I wanted to try a Tennessee beer and the waitress carded me ( I am 62 years old). The other people who came in with us were served and had drinks and we had just gotten... More

Four sat down for lunch and our experience was a very positive one. We actually ordered two fondues and we shared them. Two servings was enough for four old folks. Not only were we permitted to share, this restaurant did not charge a split plate fee for which we were very grateful. Jonathan, our waiter was a true professional, He... More

The food was so good! You do have to be patient and like fondue! It's not for everyone but if so, you will love it. This particular location was lacking a bit in their service. We felt abandon most of the night. Our waitress was very nice, she was just never around. We expected better service for the quality of... More

This was, overall, a disappointing experience. We made reservations, yet had to wait despite the restaurant being almost empty. Server was nice, but very slow. Food was ok, but, again, not up to typical Melting Pot standards. I'd recommend the Melting Pot, but not this one.

My husband and I were in Gatlinburg for a couple days and I saw this place on TripAdvisor and we decided to try it out. Not sure if reservations are mandatory but I highly suggest you make them just in case cause that's the first thing we were asked (thank goodness I made them earlier in the day) The atmosphere...

I was with a group of 5 people and we ended up walking out 40 minutes after being seated because our waitress was so rude. There was not a wait to be seated. We sat down and waited 20 minutes before we got a waitress. Then another 20 before she brought our drinks. The wait wasn't really a big deal... More

My husband and I lived close to the Richmond, VA location for years and never checked The Melting Pot out. Then, on a whim, we decided to make reservations and have dinner to finish up our Anniversary/Birthday trip to Gatlinburg, TN. BEST. DECISION. EVER. The reservations were so simple to make on my phone. We even arrived 30 minutes early... More

My Fiancé and I celebrated our engagement at The Melting Pot this past Sunday. Michael was our server and he went above and beyond to make our evening special. Michael was attentive, patient, and informative. He was very personable and made our experience one to remember. Hopefully, we will be able to ask for Michael as our server every year!... More

This was the first time trying The Melting Pot Hadthe 4 course experience. The appetizers in a beer and Wisconsin cheddar cheese dip was good. The Mojo Caribbean cooking style was an excellent choice for the French Quarter and the Land and Sea! Then finaly, dessert was a chocolate fondue dip for different sweets.
