  • "My wife and I had an excellent dinner getting out without the kids. Our server was the bartender so a manager and others stepped in to help out when he was busy and it worked out fine as they were all very friendly and answered any questions we had. We were disappointed to see the fiesta cheese fondue was off the menu. Talking to our server later, they can still make it for you if they have the ingredients on hand which they normally do."

  • "This restaurant used to be our go-to for all special occasions. It's gone WAY down hill -- we had tried it last year and had decided it wasn't the price anymore after poor service and lots of menu changes. This time, the recipe changes made the food actually bad, and they ran out of cheese!? How does this happen EARLY?? It's a fondue restaurant!"

  • "Took 2 friends whom I haven't hung out with for many years. Neither had ever been to this type of restaurant. Our waiter made sure that they had a GREAT time, thoroughly enjoying the food, wine and conversation. The atmosphere was great for catching up because they never rush you through your meal. We all had the opportunity to try foods we hadn't had before because of the variety available. Great time!"

  • "Took my family to The Melting Pot for my wife's birthday. As always, the food was great and we appreciated all the guidance we received from our server regarding recommendations and sauces and which ones to mix. The birthday dessert with candle was also a great touch. Thanks for making it a great occasion."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Melting Pot. The atmosphere was romantically lit and quiet. The service was top notch, very attentive. We both enjoyed the appetizer and salad, the entree was good. The dessert was very chocolately, which if you like chocolate is a good thing. Overall, it was a very nice dining experience!"

  • "The waitress was a little quirky, but that makes the mood of the restaurant that much better. She was super friendly and tried to make the most of our special experience. I took my mom here to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant had chocolate covered strawberries prepared for her to take home. Overall, it was just a classy, great meal. I can't wait for another special occasion to come up so we can afford to go there again! haha"

  • "We only had the dessert menu for our first time visiting there. My wife and I can't wait to come back and try out the dinner menu. Service was excellent, great private booths for a romantic evening. I was even able to get roses and a balloon set on the table ahead of time! It was a perfect evening. Thank You Melting Pot! You made our 6th Anniversary a memorable one."

  • "Very disappointed. Menu has changed - for the worse. Only 2 types of bread now and the bread tasted stale. They no longer serve carrots as part of the vegetables, and there's no cheesecake in the dessert trays that accompany the chocolate. Most importantly and our personal favorite, the Wisconsin Trio cheese fondue is no longer served which. We did not like the cheddar fondue. The Melting Pot was at the top of our favorite restaurants; however, I double we'll go back due to the changes in the menu."

  • "We celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday at The Melting Pot. The six of us enjoyed two pots of melted chocolate and all the goodies to dip into it. The server was energetic and happy. He gave my daughter a special dessert in the shape of the number 14. "

  • "We had an outstanding experience having our Anniversary dinner here. Out server Chelsee (sp?) was excellent. She was friendly,very well informed and was spot-on with her recommendations. If you have a chance to request her section, I would highly recommend it. The food was tasty and definitely enough of it - we left stuffed. Thank you, Chelsee (and the Melting Pot Annapolis) for making our anniversary dinner memorable."

  • "I have not been to a Melting Pot in several years. I always enjoy myself. The service at the Annapolis location was great. My only negative comment would be the size of the entree meat portion, a bit small for the price. Overall however, the food was good. "

  • "My fiancé and I went to the Annapolis Melting Pot during this February’s restaurant week on a weekday. It was our first time ever dining there. We had heard mixed opinions about the food but we are glad we finally went to experience it for ourselves. Our waiter provided outstanding service! Our waiter gave great suggestions and explanations of our options with the preset menu. We ordered the Spinach Artichoke Cheese Fondue, Caesar salad, The Classic entrée with the seasoned court bouillon cooking style, a mango cocktail (can’t remember the name) and Blackberry Sage Lemonade. The food was delicious and cocktails great! I now see what all the rave is about. Overall, a great experience for us and we will definitely return to this location!"

  • "As always, the Melting Pot was the perfect place to catch up with an old, dear friend. The food was amazing, the service was great and we were able to catch up on years that we lost being 3,000 miles apart. We were not rushed and enjoyed cooking and talking and talking and talking. It was private enough to feel like we were not being overheard or bothering anyone. We enjoyed the food so much that it made the dinner just perfect!"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Definitely a special occasion restaurant. The four course selection, with its many varieties of cheese, salad, main course, and dessert selections make this a great place for couples. Would not recommend for a first date as the joint decisions on cheese and cooking style may get things off to a bad start before you even get the food."

  • "My mother is not the easiest of customers. She manages to find something wrong at every restaurant we go to. That being said, she loved the melting pot. It was a great dining experience, our waiter was at our every demand and we were seated immediately due to open table reservations. The only thing the rest of the party agreed on (that my mother didn't) was our cheese choice. She loved the bourban bacon cheddar and we weren't too fond of it, next time we will overrule her and go with the cheddar. It was a little too bitter tasting but again, she loved it. We will definitely return. Oh and they gave us extra rice krispys- always a good thing in my book! "

  • "We usually enjoy The Melting Pot because of the novelty and quality of the dining experience. We were a bit disappointed this time. Specifically, one of our two salads was not very fresh and the orange-chocolate fondue was not as good as we expected. (We didn't like the gummy candies that added the orange flavor to the chocolate.) Not our usual enjoyable meal this time."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "What a great experience! We enjoyed the four course meal , just to see how quickly the food cooked in the fondue pot and also the seasonings were right on. Can't wait to come back again."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Service was very good. Always love melting pot. Not happy you got rid of fiesta cheese fondue! Also not happy that cheesecake is an extra cost! For the amount of money we spent, cheesecake should not be extra. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Food was adequate but fell short of my expectations. For the cheese fondue, the white wine overpowered any flavor of the cheese. For me that was a disappointment as I was looking forward to the cheese being at the forefront. The rest of the meal was acceptable but nothing I'd consider writing a raving review over. Service was excellent for the most part. Though towards the end of the meal the server could have made an effort to pass by a bit more frequently to refill drinks. The dining experience overall was acceptable but as I mentioned, the food fell short of my personal expectations. Therefore The Melting Pot will not be on my list of "must return" to dining establishments."

  • "Having never been here before I had no idea what to expect other than I was going to dip bread into a pot of hot chesse. My experience was more then that and it was interesting and entertaining at the same time. I loved how I could cook the whole meal. The food was fresh! The flavor of all the different oils and sauces was amazing. My favorite was the shrimp, the cheese and the desert!"

While this is not my first time dining at the Melting Pot, James made this experience better than the others. The food was great, the ambiance was great and customer service was EXCELLENT! Way to go Melting Pot."

  • "There were 6 of us in my group. We could not stop praising our wonderful experience. The food was amazing, our waiter fantastic, and the fun just went on through our entire meal."

  • "When I arrived with a 6:30pm reservation, I wasn't seated until 7:15pm. This location has a SMALL waiting area and seems no ready for a normal crowd of people especially during restaurant week. The tables are small and the pot is FAR away from diners, making the dinner more awkward than enjoyable. If your wanting to go to the melting pot, I recommend the Towson location which is better and comfy in their layout."
