Fantastic food and friendly service!
The decoration in our table was really nice, food was really good.
Great anniversary dinner! We always love to celebrate our family’s special occasions at The Melting Pot.
Celebrated my birthday. Food was great.
Service was outstanding, food was fantastic, ambience was perfect. If you are looking for a place to slow down, relax, and enjoy great conversation this is the place for you.
Birthday for my wife.
Great experience for my daughter (daddy-daughter date). Kayla was an exceptional server - conversationally appropriate & professional.
This was my first time in a long time!!! The experience was great and the server was awesome. Stephanie really did help in providing great suggestions and made the experience even better. She’s definitely a jewel. I will definitely return!
Kayla is the best waitress I’ve had in a long time. She has the most wonderful smile. She wasn’t supposed to be our server but saw us waiting a little while and stepped in to take care of us. She is truly a hard worker and that’s hard to find these days in restaurants.
Our server Elizabeth was excellent. Perfect Date Night!
Server Lucas was great. Everything was good.
The Big Night Out is an excellent offering and everything was delicious! Very happy with our experience.
Came here for my partner’s birthday and our anniversary— Olivia was AMAZING! great experience, worth the price!
No wait. Great server who was knowledgable w new menu. Great food.
Our last few times here have been very disappointing. Service was incredibly slow and inattentive and food items were missing parts of the “normal” experience. We have been going since 2010 and it has been really poorly the last 6-8 months. Generally we love the food and the experience, I hope they take steps soon to remedy whatever the issues are.
It wasn’t what I expected
Yummy dinner and superb service!
Great birthday dinner for my wife.
Sevcice was first class and the food was fabulous! Would definitely recommend.
WE LOVED IT
The staff was amazing. They made sure we had an enjoyable experience and had everything we needed.
The server was amazing. I mentioned to him that I hated cilantro when we were choosing our broth. When he brought the meat out he realized one of the selections had cilantro on it. He warned me about it and brought out some filet for me, without me even asking for it. He was very thoughtful!
It was amazing!
Great place for friends, date, or special occasion.
This was our first time at The Melting Pot. I made reservations for our 30th wedding anniversary and asked for the most private table possible with candles. Out table was on time and the setup was great. There was a rose for my wife, rose petals littered the entire table, a card signed by the staff congratulating our anniversary! Our table was so private that we could at no point ever even see another customer. This type of dining is time-consuming, we were seated for about two hours. The entire experience is very intimate with your other diner. As usual, there was someone's toddler running up and down the aisle next to us the entire time but we never had to see him, only hear him. The whole experience with cooking your own little pieces of meat and veg is a bit gimmicky tho. All of the ingredients were fresh and of high quality. How your meal turns out is however all up to you. Since you have to cook every bite of your entree one at a time, it takes a while. If you have bad food here, it's your fault. Overall The Melting Pot did a great job without anniversary dinner. The bill was about $150 for two people with a 25% tip, not something I would do more than once a year (that bill includes the mac daddy levels on all courses and a few beers) Tip: When asked which of the four cooking styles you want for your entree, don't take the familiar deep fry oil choice without thinking it over. Deep-fried filet Mignon is not as good as it sounds and deep-fried lobster is downright not good. . Next time we will try a seasoned broth cooking style.
A little pricey, but it makes for a fun date night.
Great food and service
I just wanted to take my wife and daughter to a nice place and the Melting Pot never disappoints. Great service and food.
It was our 14th wedding anniversary. Food was great as always .the only bad thing we had a server who had only been there 3 days. So he only filled up our waters once which was at the end. He forgot a few times to bring things like the ingridents to start the pot. His attitude was great which tells me he will eventually hopefully be fine . But for my wedding anniversary I wish we would have had a experienced person. Overall I could eat the melting pot daily. He did do great on bringing us our extra desert items.
The Caesar salad wasn’t as fresh as it normally is. Service was rather slow but restaurants are struggling to get workers now that the government is paying a higher wage. Overall very tasty.
Good food and fun. The table we sat at was alittle cramped.
Came here to celebrate my wife’s birthday and we were not disappointed! Friendly and welcoming greetings as soon as we walked in. Our waitress Cassidy was very attentive and we were never left wondering when she would check on us and she kept the courses coming. She has a great personality and she made us feel very welcome. We don’t live near Columbia as we were on our way from a vacation and chose to stop for dinner here but we would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.
We went for our anniversary and it was wonderful. The waiter was new but did a fantastic job. Thanks!
A great leisurely dinner with great food. Great anniversary spot.
Normally my experience is pretty nice. Unfortunately this time my waiter was horrible. Literally took him 30 min or longer to resurface. Requested additional sauce, 40 min later he returned to bring the check but no sauce. Just wasn’t a good experience.
Alex is a fun, energetic and knowledgeable server and we highly recommend you dine with her!
Always a treat to visit The Melting Pot in Columbia, SC.
Our server on Mother's Day 2021 was outstanding and helped recommend some choices that we loved.
We especially love the privacy of the seating, which adds to the fun of the visit.
Food and service are the best around! Great experience. What can be improved is the seating. The booth was too tight for comfort and the springs in the beach were totally shot. Wonderful restaurant but lousy seating.
