Fondue
Proudly serving the Appleton area for 20 years, completely remodeled with a full bar with burners, lounge tables, firewall, lover's lane and private dining rooms.
Our experience is perfect for a romantic night out or a special occasion that deserves a unique experience. Our location provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Entrees can be cooked fondue style or one our tableside grills. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale.
Thank you for supporting our independently owned restaurant and employees.

    Sat at our table for 2.5 hours and probably saw the waitress six total times with 2 40 minute gaps waiting for water and dessert. The manager noticed and and told the waitress to be more attentive but didn’t comp us anything and no apologies. Vibes were off

    We came to melting pot to celebrate a seven-year-old girls birthday. I mentioned this to our waitress and she just smiled kind of smugly and said thanks for telling me. And did nothing, absolutely nothing to make the seven-year-old girl feel special. She didn’t seem to care whether it was her birthday or anybody else’s or any other reason we were there for.  I also ordered balloons for this in advance through the dining app, and nothing was there. Our waitress was not in a hurry to take our orders and/or fulfill our requests. She was very slow almost to a point where I had to wonder if she just didn’t want to be there. Came across very superficial and other times condescending. I thought our experience would be so much more, the only thing that lived up to expectations, based on what we heard about the melting pot, was the price they charged us. Sadly, that was the only thing they lived up to. There seemed to be other waitresses there that were much more engaged with their tables and their customer(not that it took much to beat the service we were receiving). I am truly sorry that we came there and spent the money we did.  Sadly, the memories you left us with were very disappointing to say the least. Disappointedly yours, Roy

    While our server was very helpful during the ordering process, they never refilled our waters or asked if we wanted more drinks. They also did not bus our table despite having drinks ready to be picked up at the end of the table. The table was so crowded, we could barely move, let alone cook. They also did not box up the cheese fondue to take home. We had to do that ourselves by holding the hot bowl with a napkin to not burn ourselves and use a fork to scoop it out (no spoon provided). The prices at this restaurant are OUTRAGEOUS for the amount and quality of food received, especially considering we cook it ourselves!!! The only thing worth buying at Melting Pot is the cheese fondue and desserts.

    The uncooked entrée looks high quality when it comes to your table, however after cooking it in the watered down broth, it takes away from the quality of the food. The broth needs way more flavoring and there should be garnishes offered for after the entrée has been cooked; scallions, sesame seeds, soy/fish sauce, etc. There are dipping sauces offered that add flavor and without those, the meat/main entrée have little to no flavor. The experience and ambience is different and makes your dining experience unique and exciting, however I don't feel like the taste of the end product is worth the price. In my opinion, you're paying for the experience.

    I brought my daughter and two of her friends for her 15th birthday. The girls really enjoyed the experience. Our server, Abby H, was top notch! She was very patient and helpful in assisting the girls with their orders. It was a very busy evening and she was always there to get drinks, bring extras, sauces...etc. Thanks for a wonderful evening and birthday experience!

    The food was good but disappointed about the birthday experience- we traveled 4 hours to go, I made a special birthday reservation and confirmed and we were not asked about the birthday. Which was noted on the website. Overall was still good but felt that was a bummer.

    Not sure what happened to this restaurant. Service was so slow and the restaurant not busy at all. The quality isn’t what it used to be. Our bill was over $600.00 for 6 people!! My son had a piece of plastic in his chocolate fondue. Not worth complaining about as I’m sure nothing would be done.
