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. 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.

    Couldn’t do the iron skillet because of remodeling. Didn’t make sense. They were out of tuna. This should have been communicated when we were seated.

    Most of the food was amazing, our friend ordered the veggie option and found mold on her peppers. She discreetly told the server so we didn't make a ruckus in the dining area, he thanked us for being polite about it. She didn't eat any of hers after she found the mold. And got charged for the entire meal. The experience was amazing being our first time, but a little more attention to the fresh veggies should be a priority

    Meh overall. Overall cleanliness and ambiance at the Appleton location has declined over the years. The kids menu should be expanded. I don’t think mushroom filled ravioli (which was stated as “pasta” on the menu) is a food most kids enjoy- mine certainly didn’t. I also think there should be cheese options that aren’t wine or beer-based. I do, however, think their cocktail and mocktail selections are among the best!

    You get plenty of food but our server was just ok. She had a larger party and had to tend to them. She didn't fill our drinks at all and between courses the table had sauces spilled on it and we asked her if she happened to have a towel and she said "No" but she would bring us napkins. 10 minutes later she brought napkins and we wiped up our own table and we were kind of like wow, for a $200 dinner for 3 people, you think she could have wiped the table and asked us if we needed more drinks. Anyhow you get tons of food and it's tasty.

    Very poor experience. Signed up for “endless cheese and chocolate fondue experience” 22 days PRIOR to the date of reservation. Received reminders up to and including 1 day before my reservation for the “endless cheese and chocolate fondue experience.” Arrive and check in, no one says this is no longer available. Not until my waitress arrived at the table 5 min later did she tell us that was no longer available. Look through the menu, can’t do a 3 or 4 course dinner because I was on a timeframe due to plans after (which I had planned according to the original reservation special so there was plenty of time), so end up ordering separate cheese and chocolate fondue and end up paying MORE for LESS food. Also couldn’t leave and go somewhere else at this point because the drive and finding another place would waste even more time. Very disappointing to say the least. Worst part is that it was for my anniversary so instead of spending a relaxed, fun dinner together, I ended up feeling stressed and irritated. Someone should have followed up on this reservation because I would have absolutely cancelled it and went somewhere else more time and price conducive. I have no problem spending money on good food, but when I am paying more money for less food than I had originally signed up for I have a problem with that.

    Management is TERRIBLE. My friend found a piece of very sharp plastic in her mouth as we were eating our food. The manager was very nasty and condescending towards us when we complained about it. I have been coming to the melting pot every year for my birthday for the last 15 years. I will never be going back. I am just appalled at how the manager handled this situation. Completely unacceptable.
