This Melting Pot is our go-to spot for special occasions. It was my birthday celebration and the restaurant gave me a card with the staff’s signatures: absolutely great touch! We will continue going there. Oh yeah, Alex (our server) was awesome!

I love this place. I feel like I'm getting less food for the money then I used to, and service was a little lacking. But, overall a fine dining experience.

We have been coming to the Melting Pot regularly for 15+ years. It is hands down our favorite restaurant. Our dinner during a recent visit was very disappointing. The server was inexperienced. She kept spilling cheese outside of the pot because of the way she was stirring the cheese. Instead of keeping the spoon down towards the bottom of the bowl, she kept making large stirring motions that would cause the cheese to spill. The music was very loud and was worse than elevator music. The bigger issue was that the server put a tremendous amount of garlic and pepper in both the cheese and entree. We ate the cheese because we were starving ( couldn’t get a reservation until 9:15) and when we got there, there were more empty tables than filled tables. After forgetting our bottled water, she asked us if our dinner was good and I told her how peppery it was, assuming she would try to rectify it, but instead she just smiled and walked off. She was very nice and I hate to write a bad review, but for the price you pay for a meal there, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to think that our food should be anything other than perfect. We left a large part of our entree there because it was inedible. The server just needs to be better trained.

We enjoyed! However, one of the ladies with our party had a seafood allergy. No accommodations were offered, there should be an alternative available for those with food allergies. The waitresses were friendly, but I spent more time explaining how the menu worked than the servers spent demonstrating the menu to a table full of new timers. We enjoyed overall, and I would come again, but the service could have been a better experience, and there is room to improve with food allergies.

The experience was outstanding. Props to Charlie who set bar for Servers everywhere. I also appreciate that there was a discrete way of saying happy birthday. Neither I or my girlfriend like that being the center of attention. Great experience all together.

It was my first experience at a fondue restaurant. Although the food was enjoyable, we had a concern. Although the manager said that he would follow up & call me about the concern we had, he never did. I will not return because of this.

My husband and I go to the Melting Pot once per year to celebrate our anniversary. The food is always spectacular. We always get the 4 course experience which includes cheese, salad, main and dessert. I highly recommend the Bourbon, Bacon and Cheddar for the cheese course, Caesar salad with extra pine nuts or the California salad, Steak Lovers & Good Earth Vegetarian as mains (Tip: if dining for two this is perfect because you get a nice selection of meats and veggies for a great price), and Dark & Dulce with a shot of Tuaca. This is one of my favorite chain restaurants!

Our server, Grant, was wonderful! We’re coming back for Valentines Day because if his recommendation :-) one small note, we arrived early to enjoy a cocktail before dinner but weren’t able to get a drink from the bar tenders. Otherwise great experience.

I have been to the Melting Pot one other time to the Charlotte location. It was a nice experience but Huntersville tops it by far!! Jordan was a fabulous server, very attentive and helpful with recommendations. This was a first time experience for two of my boys and they are so excited to return for another visit. Thank you Melting Pot Huntersvile!!

I loved this restaurant, the staff were amazing. They were very attentive and made sure that everything was to our liking without us needing to say anything. We went during a particularly packed evening and felt that we were given just as much attention that we would've received if we had been the only ones there.
