We love the Melting Pot, has been a family thing for years and years. We were, however, a bit disappointed in the changes in the menu, with the decreased selections and quantities. As a food and beverage management consultant, I totally understand the rising food costs and everything else with running a restaurant/bar. And perhaps the need to stay within targeted percentages outplayed the need to use common sense. When portions and offerings are reduced or change significantly to stay within a price point, the perception is that everything is being cut. In a fine establishment like the Melting Pot, I would believe that most guests do not mind whether they spend $120 or $175 for the total experience... if I was looking for cheap, I could have chosen Denny's... but leave the portions alone, leave the selections alone, don't cut back on the amount of chocolate in the fondue (yes, we noticed) and simply raise the prices - we expect to pay... Melting Pot is not about "cheap" - it's about a unique and fine dining experience... You and I both know we can do it cheaper at home, bringing out our fondue pots from the garage... Make it special... Please. We will continue to do on special occasions, but, please, at least read what I have commented on.

Had spoiled fruit brought to us, manager never came by to introduce herself like other melting pots. The cheese did not taste good and I told waitress that and she didn’t offer to bring me another one or anything. We love Melting Pot but not this one...we will never return!

Sean at The Melting Pot was super sweet and fun! We felt very welcome for our first time at the restaurant, and Sean explained every step to us patiently and with experience to spare. We deeply enjoyed this visit! This was the best food we've had our entire trip, and the most fun. We had a great time! I cannot recommend this restaurant, and Sean, highly enough! Also, if you decide to do the four course, GET THE TOFU. It soaks up the broth and is so warm and moist and flavorful~

This was our third time at The Melting Pot in Destin. It has new management and expanded menu. The new options I have to say were really nice. We were celebrating a birthday and when we got to our table the rose, card and chocolate covered strawberries were already there. We had Storm for a waiter and he was great! From table talk to bring out food and helping with recommendations, he did a great job. Thank you Storm for the wonderful service! We will be back again soon

Service was incredible and I loved the feel of the restaurant. I just wish I had tried something else because the food was good but did not meet my expectations of amazing food. Cheese platter was by far my favorite but the entree round was not what I was hoping for in flavor. Overall I did enjoy my experience there and hope to return again soon!

This is a fun experience. We did not have a good waitress. She talked really fast and rushed our service. It is a four course experience, but it felt more like a three course experience. The cheese fondue and salads came at the same time.... we were not even finished and the next course was arriving... it was a Birthday dinner and we had lots of time. The restaurant was empty so no one was waiting in line to get in.
The fast pace ruined the experience. The food was excellent but having a good server is key to the overall experience.

Service was great. Food was good but overpriced in my opinion. My chicken was a rubbery texture. Steak was very good. Cheese fondue delicious and chocolate fondue wonderful. I just think the price is outrageous. You pay more for the experience than the actual amount of food and/or quality.

Brought my family here, we will remember it forever, but not for the reasons you'd think, for the outrageous price! The concept is fun, though the menu is hard to follow and there are times when everyone has to agree on one thing, such as the dipping sauces and cooking method. That's another thing, for $220 for 4 people I didn't feel that we should've had to cook our own food. I thought everything would come out cooked and we would simply dip. (Not the case with the entree). Portions are small for the price. Between the 4 of us we had 12 shrimp, and probably less than a 6 oz steak. Granted there was also chicken, but that's cheap. The deserts were the same way, there's a lot of pretzels yet only 1 Oreo crusted marshmallow per person. I would go for just desert on a special occasion. But I won't likely go back.

Absolutely loved it! Have lived in the area for almost 15 years and have always wanted to go but never had the chance. Finally did, and will definitely be back and soon. Went with my mother for a celebration dinner and we both were amazed at what a good time we had and how much we enjoyed it. Can’t wait till next time.

It seems like the Melting Pot has taken a step down. Menus used to be colorful (book style) with pictures and now just printed on one thin page, front and back in black and white. Menu looked like it was printed on a home printer. We had a party of 4 people which used to consist of 2 cook tops, this time we only allowed one cook top and when we asked if we could have a table with 2 cook tops, we were told no. During dessert, strawberries were cut up, used to be served whole. Cheesecake is no longer included. On another note, waitress was very professional and courteous.

Corporate changed the menu to be easier for our new guests to understand, but I do remember the big books we used to have! Unfortunately the Destin location was not built with 2 burners at four tops, but when making your reservation if you request a 2 burner we will gladly hold that table for you. This particular night all of the two burner tables had been reserved for large parties. Changes have happened over the years and as a company the Melting Pot will always keep evolving! Auburn

We had a wonderful time! The food was excellent and the experience was amazing. Our waitress was great until our main courses came. Once she brought our main courses she disappeared for over 20 minutes. We eventually flagged down another waiter who sent over the hostess. She didn’t apologize for the tardiness of our waitress, she only took away our dirty dishes. We had to ask her for more water as our water cups had been empty for nearly 15 minutes. Another waitress came to the table and refilled our waters. I asked if our waitress was okay and mentioned that we hadn’t seen her in over 20 minutes. She blew it off by saying that they do teamwork and they help each other out. My husband and I have a great sense of humor so the whole ordeal was humorous to us but other guests may not be so forgiving. When our waitress finally came back to the table there was no apology, she acted as if nothing had happened.

We will definitely come back but we’ll hope for better service next time!

We’ve been here a couple times for Anniversaries and birthdays. We always do the 4 courses but even a happy hour with just cheese or just dessert would be fun. Our server, Jessica, was prompt, attentive, and friendly. We usually sit at lovers lane which is the best for a date. The only thing we noticed this time around was the very odd picture of laughing dogs in our romantic booth lol.
