This is a fun experience, so I rate it high with caveats. It is very expensive if you go for the full entree four course meal. Our group of 3 were all newbies and our server knew this. We asked her what we should do and that we did not want to have all of us getting a full course, but she indicated this was the only thing we could do -- we could not combine our food choices and that seemed restrictive and just plain expensive and perhaps this is by design. Our server did not make suggestions, but steered us to the 4 course choice and end the end, for 3 people drinking water, it still was $131 without tip. So, great time with friends, fun experience, but frustrating that they do not give options, but zero in on most expensive choices. The entree choices were so-so and plentiful. The cheese fondue was fun and tasty, but we all agreed that it was worth it for the chocolate dessert fondue! We chose dark chocolate and it was delicious with some fun choices to dip. The atmosphere was great and all in all it was a nice time together. Next time I go, it will only be for an appetizer or a dessert!

We all enjoyed it very much. Chuck was our waiter and was excellent. The only minor complaints were the salads which we were not so good and for the last course we would have enjoyed a little more fruit and less cake with the chocolate.
Not the most reasonable restaurant but great for a special occasion. Would definitely go again.

Melting Pot Annapolis was a good experience. Making reservations was fine, but upon arrival the staff looked unprepared for our group of 10, even in spite of several tables being open. Our server who took our drink order switched out and we had a different server deliver the drinks and take our order. Once the drinks were delivered, everything else went smoothly from there.
Our group only had desserts, so cannot review the overall food/menu, but the chocolate fondu options were tasty. Overall, I'd recommend the spot to others.

Kyle was such an amazing waiter. He was attentive but not overly hovering. Had awesome convos with him. Gave us new recommendations even after we’ve been there so many times. Place never gets old and always a thrill to go back. The wine flights were new and awesome. Salad wine was kind of bland but the others were great!

As first time visitors it was a little confusing, but fortunately my daughter and her family are regulars and they made it a lot of fun. The food was very good and the staff was wonderful. Since we recently moved in just across the street, we will be back.

This is my husband and my favorite date night spot. We love the intimate 2-person booths; it makes us feel like we are the only ones there. We love the self-paced eating style and never feel rushed by the staff. This weekend we dined for 3 hours! The 4-course experience is delicious!!

Service was slow. Entire visit was about 4 hrs. I think our waiter was new. Was definitely planning on just a 2 -2.5 hr visit. But he was nice. This is my second time here. My first time here, the waitress was more experienced and so service was a lot faster. Over all, a good experience. I do plan on returning.

I don't remember Melting Pot being such a family place. There were kids running around everywhere, being loud, and babies crying incessantly. Completely ruined the atmosphere of the place. Maybe I'm confused as to the type of restaurant it is, but it was definitely not a the place I'd choose if i want a quiet evening with someone.

Wait staff was great, and food was great, as always, but seriously, do something about the kids running around.

It was a true dining experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. This was our first time to the restaurant and we didn’t know what to expect. Our server, Kevin, was friendly and helpful. He explained everything thoroughly and ensured we knew what to expect. Garth, the manager that evening , stopped by and engaged us in a nice conversation vice the usual quick check on things. The food was superb, staff was wonderful and the evening was a great success.

My husband, daughter & I all went together for last day of school congrats for our 7 year old, we though it would be fun. Despite being told how everything works by the hostess, our server lacked the ability to be very informative. We weren't told that we could get 2, one portion sizes of cheese, since we ordered 2, 4 course meals. This would have been nice so we could try a variety (as the 2 tables beside us did). We ended up doing this for the chocolate though, we tried the banana foster and the Smores, omg the banana foster was delicious! However, 1 each of the following: strawberry, round piece of banana, square of lb cake, square of brownie, & a little triangle of pineapple was, just sad. She said " well, that's because you chose to do the one portion amount" meanwhile, the tables around us did get the 2 portion of chocolate, & had LOTS more dipping choices, to where they had leftovers once done (we were chatty with the other table). It took over an hour to go from dessert, to check due to our server constantly being MIA. Didnt come to check on us at any point other than to ask if we were ready for the next portion. The cooking times were WAY off. 1.5 minutes for seafood, yeah, if you like salmon that looks like smoked salmon, and shrimp that are still grayish, & 2 minutes for the meats, only if you like raw chicken & med rare beef and duck. I asked a passing server if he could get my daughter a glass of water, as she didn't like her drink, he asked who our server was & I told him I wasn't sure of her name. He walked away & came back to the table beside us 2x & never looked at us, let along brought her, her water. We had to ask another server near us & she came back right away. Another 15 minutes went by before we even seen our server. I wish we had the server who brought my daughter her water, she seemed to be on top of her game the entire time. I'm a server myself, have been for many years, so it takes a lot for me to be completely disappointed.

We've been here a couple of times over the years. Always in sticker shock after just opting for the Cheese & Chocolate Fondue. Our latest endeavor was almost $200 after tip for a party of five. When you consider the cost and what you're actually buying, you're probably better off purchasing a fondue pot and dip at home.

Dining at The Melting Pot was our first experience eating there. Our waiter was very friendly and informative assisting us throughout each step of dining in. What I also loved was how the staff worked as a team to ensure our experience wasn’t delayed because of other tables. We’d definitely dine at The Melting Pot again and would recommend it to others.

Overall our experience was okay. Our waiter kind of ruined our overall experience he was loud obnoxious and we asked him to take a group picture he took a picture of himself and sent it to our mother. We didn't end up with a group photo never got refills on our waters. I love melting pot will be back but will refuse him as our waiter!
