I would recommend this place for a couple but the fondue pot is too small for use by four people. The price is high and the surrounding is not adequate.
Another fine evening and meal at Melting Pot Duluth.
We attended on New Years Eve. We had a 7:30PM reservation but were not seated until 8:45PM. When we arrived, the lobby was crowded and we were told by the manager there would only be a 20 minute wait which was not true. There is a bar in the waiting area but the bartender was busy seating, bussing tables, and doing other errands because they were obviously short staffed. It took 20 minutes after being seated to revive any food.
Once seated, we noticed several tables that were empty and dirty but were not cleaned for over an hour due to the short staffed situation.
We ordered a wine flight that was to accompany each course but did not get the first serving until the third course.
They had to modify their menu because they ran out of cheddar cheese and lobster tails.
While our server was nice and the food was good, the overall experience was extremely disappointing.
Due to it being short staffed, the waiters and waitresses were AWESOME.
Server was very disappointing
Part of our family arrived after Christmas and we chose the Melting Pot for a group dinner. The staff was terrific and the food and service made it a great night. Even with wildly different tastes, each of us had a
Meal and an evening to remember.
Excellent service and food
We had our family Christmas dinner at the Melting Pot in Duluth. We had an excellent time and the meal was superb. Mike our waiter was awesome’
From the front checkin to dessert, we had a wonderful experience. The staff were incredible helpful. I would recommend to all I know.
A great place for special occasions. It never disappoints. Food was great. Service was excellent. If I had to have any complaint, the booths are a little old and we were sitting lower than normal at the table. Other than than, a perfect experience.
Everyone was extremely friendly. Our waiter was excellent and fun. Food and atmosphere was great!
Great atmosphere and food was delicious.
Tasty as always, enjoyed the meal. My favorite is the cheese fondue, but the steak is amazing as well.
This location goes above and beyond. This is our preferred lication.
tasty food. great dining experience, takes about three hours. have been going to melting pots throughout the east coast for a few years and this visit was enjoyable as usual. of course with melting pot you just need to be aware of the price you’ll be paying, more of a special occasion place for me due to that reason
We enjoy coming to the melting pot each time! Our waiter was not very attentive as we had a new person who this was her first time. He didn't go through what he was doing when making the cheese fondue. Only helpful time was when we couldn't order one thing and he suggested something else. Was disappointed in how the service was. Even though I have been lots, I still except them to go through steps. Especially when I am asking for white wine instead of beer for the cheese base.
But this won't stop me from coming back. Thank you Melting Pot!
Always a lot of fun and good food! Mike is the best.
My wife and I decided to go to the Melting Pot for my birthday dinner. We know the place and like the ambience. Our server was Alexander and he did a great job. We had the classic alpine cheese fondue for three because we like it so much. Then we continued with our meat and seafood fondue. We skipped the chocolate fondue as we already had had to much food. It was a fun filled evening with good food and good wine.
Our birthday celebration at the Melting Pot was a hit with the family. While the experience is special in and of itself, it would fall short without an amazing server to maximize the meal. Christiana was amazing!
Our waiter was very nice and very funny and did a wonderful job.
I definitely got full quickly but the place is a little dated looking and should be renovated. Food was seasoned well and manager even came to speak just to make sure we were enjoying everything so I liked he was hands on and nice. Good service though!
So sad to say that this was the worst experience we ever had at The Duluth Melting Pot. We come several times a year, and yesterday we were celebrating my birthday. We made reservations for 5 and were seated promptly. Our waitress seemed young and very unexperimented. She wasn't able to answer basic questions such as what was best for the 5 of us to do a "a la carte" or "menu" when some of us wanted 3 courses and some just 2. We ordered 2 Alpine fondue for 5 and she only filled 1 pot. She had a hard time fixing the cheese. Sprayed nutmeg all over the table. My favorite with the cheese is cauliflower and she said they were not serving cauliflower anymore and that was a big disappointment. Entrees were fine but she never came to check on us, not even once to see if we needed drinks refills. We had to go to bar ourselves to order extra drinks. We ordered white chocolate for the 2 kids, she filled 2 full pots with a very liquid white chocolate. In the past, we always had a great experience, great service. I hope that she gets more training and doesn't get first timers at the Melting Pot because she will turn customers away. The positive was that she was very polite and smiled a lot. Food was great as always.
The food was awsome. It is a great place to go to celebrate soecial occasions.
Fantastic food and great service made it a wonderful family night out! Our kids call it FUNdo! Our server Christina was excellent, knowledgeable and always anticipating what we might need before we even asked. Would definitely recommend The Melting Pot in Duluth and I will definitely go again!
Really enjoyed the dinner. Management and server were very attentive. Food was great and they handled our special requests like champs. Very good.
Love this place! We come here a couple times a year and we have a new waiter/waitress every time and have never had any issues. The managers are great too and very accommodating.
Great as always
I so wish I could remember the name of our server—he was excellent. And the food was delicious! We had lots of leftover meat to take home.
Enjoyed our 30th Anniversary there. Relaxing evening with a friendly server and great food/ dessert.
Great food. atmosphere is lacking compared to other locations.
Always a pleasant experience... a true treat, overall very good food and atmosphere
Great food, great service.
Delicious cheese and chocolate as always!
This is my FAVORITE Melting Pot to visit! The manager is friendly & the staff are awesome!
We go to The Melting Pot for my oldest child’s bday every year. It’s her favorite and only bday request. Our experience was top notch and the service Ben gave was impeccable! This location is superb and I highly recommend. I am gluten free and the menu is amazingly marked, it was so easy to order. Definitely will be back!
Thank you. I will pass this along to Ben. Paul
We had a delicious meal on our anniversary. Our server Christina was absolutely fantastic.
Thank you Nichole. I will share this with Christina.
Took my wife this weekend for our anniversary. First time here so was a little nervous about going. Right off the bat we felt at ease. The waitress was grest and on time we never felt rushed even after two hours. Food was more than we could eat and was great. I will go back again for sure
This is not the Melting Pot of my youth! The restaurant was updated from my previous visit, the food was super fresh and delicious with a wide variety of options for every diet and palate, the service was impeccable, and the location and reservation process were beyond convenient. We ordered the spirit free specialty drinks, which were delicious, the 4 course meals, and they even stuck a candle in an extra plate of dessert goodies for our daughter's 16th birthday. The only complaint I had was that knowing we were celebrating a special birthday and our daughter's first upscale dining experience, we were placed next to an enormous party complete with screaming babies that completely overshadowed our evening. Other than that, I would highly recommend a Melting Pot experience and can't wait to visit again.
Restaurant needs an update from the booths, to cook tops to bathrooms, to waiting area. Our waiter was slow and inattentive. The Melting Pot in Atlanta is much better.
