Amazing drinks and wonderful service. From the moment we walked in the door till we walked out it was a great experience. Had never had fondue before the server was great at explaining and making sure our evening there was amazing! I would strongly recommend stopping by for a few drinks and dinner!

We went for a friend's birthday. We had a terrible experience. There were 7 of us and they seated us in a booth for 6 and put a chair on the end. The server was rude. He complained his back hurt and he couldn't reach the second burner. One burner did heat very well and it took more than 4 minutes to cook our meats and vegetables.

Menu was too confusing, girlfriend and i decided that for what we paid we could have ordered like half a dozen pizzas and got a case of beer and bottle of liquor to mix our own drinks, best parts of the experience were the chocolate and the cheese, cheese can be recreated easily with some basic kitchen knowledge, and the chocolate wasn't anything too difficult either. Im a fan of upscale dining and such just didn't see much value in the experience.

My experience at this restaurant was not what I was expecting. The service, food, seating, environment, occasion, etc were all perfect. For it being my first time there on a date, the first impression was great. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends. My favorite part of the night other than the dinner was when the owner of the restaurant came down and introduced himself. After doing so he thank us for dinning in for the night and it really seemed like he cared about us having a great night there. I liked that the most. A lot of respect for that.

We go every year for Valentine's Day. This year we went for my birthday and Valentine's Day. I love the creative cooking style and ambiance. This place is good for a date or just to hangout with friends!

The waiter made the whole experience worthwhile! Clay is there to serve and make your experience the best! My teenage son said he has a charismatic personality:) We enjoyed that as soon as you get seated, you get to enjoy drinks and a fondue shortly afterwards. You don't have to wait long periods of time for your meal, but can enjoy each course and the company you are with! Thanks Melting Pot for the celebration package too! Our birthday son enjoyed getting his picture taken with our group and having it framed in the "Melting Pot" frame. He also received a card, flowers and balloons!
