We loved the spinach artichoke fondu. The Quattro fondu could have been cheesier...
All of the meat was great and the chocolate dessert was amazing!

Exceptional as usual. This was my wife’s birthday dinner choice and we were a little wary as to how the boys (ages 14 and 11) would do but they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We had a double burner table and that allowed us to split between two cheese and two chocolate choices. An added plus to consider... the Melting Pot is an active experience as you’re constantly cooking your own food and there’s no time to be on your phone. That meant everyone remained engaged during the entire meal.

One of our favorite restaurants, it's a bit pricey (about $100 for the full 4 course for two people) but definitely a great spot. The cheese fondue is really great! The main entree depends on how you decide to cook it. But the chocolate fondue is incredible (we love the turtle chocolate) it is an experience and can take about 1.5-2 hours to eat everything. Definitely recommend giving this place a chance for a special occasion.

Very COVID safe. Took all measures to Social Distance. Menu oppositions had changed since our last visit, had some of our old favs listed. ❤️ Me and my husband has enjoyed going to the Melting Pot since 1995. It’s has always had outstanding service and fun atmosphere.

From the greeting of the hostess I knew this was not like the other Melting Pot restaurants I have dined in. Both of the hostess’s were very young and poorly put together, lacking satisfaction and poise. Both being extremely unprofessional and rude; flirting/kidding around with what I assumed to be the bus boys, on their phones, seated 10 minutes beyond our reservation time. The server made the experience feel extremely rushed taking away food (appetizer) prior to us being finished constantly coming back asking if we were through yet (which made us feel hurried). I was just extremely disappointed and frankly embarrassed because I had talked it up so much to my husband from previous experiences at different restaurant locations. Even the restaurant itself had more of a bar feel and lacked upkeep. Several damaged spots on the walls and tables/carpets etc. For an approximately $2-300 dollar dining experience for 2 this should be much more ... well just a much better experience all around. I was so disappointed.

The mask mandate in this store is ridiculous. You have to wear a mask when not actively chewing or drinking in a private party room with our family of 4 . If we would’ve known this beforehand, we wouldn’t have reserved a room. No other restaurants in the area mandate this ridiculous rule. We spent $229 and were stressed the whole time.

Thank you for dining with us. I understand this is a unique time to dine out, but we are only asking our guests to follow the mandate set forth on December 11, 2020 by Governor Cooper. We are just trying to do everything in our control to stay open and keep our staffs safe & healthy.

Enjoyed our special date-night evening to celebrate a special occasion. Our server was exceptional, the food was good, and the St Jude donation special was a win all around. It's been years since we've been to a Melting Pot - and they removed cheesecake from the chocolate fondue plate - how dare they - LOL! You can order an add for $3 - which saved the night.
