The Melting Pot - Fredericksburg
Great evening at The Melting Pot for our Anniversary. Great food choices, spent two hours there and never felt pressured to leave, great service and all around excellent night out. This is our 7th visit and have never been disappointed.
My friends and I have always loved this restaurant, from back when we went to another location in MD. This is the perfect place to go if you want to enjoy your meal AND talk with EVERYONE in your party. Unlike other restaurants, where everyone gets a plate of food and you’re trying to talk in between bites, here you can chat while each bite is cooking. The portions are large, so the value is there. Our waiter was very experienced, fun and professional. We were pleasantly surprised to find they updated the menu to create your own entree, but I would a ask your server for input or suggestions of what goes well with each cooking style if you aren’t familiar with the spices in each. We were happy with our pairings - herbed chicken, old bay shrimp, ahi tuna and chicken dumplings with Mojo style. YUM!! My biggest piece of advice- Don’t forget to save room for dessert!
Awesome place. Food was fantastic. Our server George was the best.
Great place to go for special occasions. Good food and service. Need to work on a more kid friendly food offering.
Friendly staff! Service was great !Food was delicious.
Great place to eat as always, I have been to three different ones, Fredericksburg and Myrtle Beach are the best so far Annapolis last time want the best. Can't wait to go back.
A little pricey for having to cook your own dinner.
I first started going to The Melting Pot in Reston in the mid 90's and have always enjoyed it. This was my first time going to the Fredericksburg location and I was very impressed. The management was super friendly and accommodating of my special requests and followed up via phone to confirm my reservations and even correct an error I made placing the reservation online.
Our server for the evening was simply amazing and super helpful and attentive to both tables in our party. He was very thorough explaining the menu options to me and to others that had never been to a fondue place and immediately put everyone at ease.
The food offerings were very broad and flexible, but I do miss "The Big Night Out" option and even more the mushroom salad. My date and I enjoyed our meal selections and the portion sizes were perfect for us.
THE WAITERS AND WAITRESS ARE ALWAYS NICE AND HELPFUL TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE GREATEST DINNER AND FUN EXPERIENCE. OUR WAITER MICHEAL MADE SURE THE TABLE MY GRANDDAUGHTER AND HER BOYFRIEND WERE AT ENJOYED HER SPECIAL BIRTHDAY DINNER. HE ALSO MADE SURE THAT MY TABLE WITH MY HUSBAND AND OTHER GRANDDAUGHTER ENJOY OUR SPECIAL DINNER. IT IS ALWAYS NICE AND FUN. DINNER IS ALWAYS DIFFERENT WHICH IS ONE REASON WE LOVE TO KEEP ON GOING BACK. THE OWNER ALWAYS STOPS BY THE TABLE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR DINNER.
Of the three Melting Pot restaurants in the greater DC area, this is the one I prefer. The hours are better, the staff is friendly and overall a really great experience
Rainy night, restaurant pretty empty as a result, but dining experience was enjoyable. Waiter knew his stuff, and explained the format of the four stage fondue meal very well. Great variety of food to choose from; almost too much food really. A little pricey, though--pre-tip close to $200--and the heating unit took awhile to really get going for each course.
Always great service and food.
We love this place
Unique experience but over-rated and over-priced
We came for our anniversary. We love the restaurant. We would have preferred to sit in a booth for more private seating, but we loved the food and service was great!
Decided same day to book a reservation at the Melting Pot for an impromptu date night. We were greeted immediately and pleasantly seated by the host. Our server George was very attentive. We love going to the Melting Pot and enjoying the multiple courses offered and spending a couple hours out together. Will definitely visit again!
Very good experience, our waiter was great I am sorry that I do not remember his name for the credit that he deserves.
It was a very enjoyable evening. Good food and easy to have a quiet conversation. Great birthday spot.
Loved everything about it. Nice, cozy dinner. Great service.
My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time and service on our anniversary. Everyone was extremely professional and everything was brought to us in a timely manner. Will definitely be going back!
Meggin our waitress was delightful. She made the evening so much more enjoyable. She was helpful, attentive, and funny.
Wonderful restaurant for special occasions. The 4 course meal takes a while to complete providing for a great time spent together. Service is excellent. All staff is very attentive. Good choices for the main meal including vegetarian, etc. This was my 3rd time dining at this location of the Melting Pot. Will come back again!
First time here and the restaurant it self is beautiful and clean, the person who seated us was nice and checked in on us, and our server was very knowledgeable and gave us good recommendation as far as what to order. For the 4 course meal that they have it's perfect for a light conversation food with drinks, it can also be shared between 2-3 people and it was good. I was surprised that they won't seat you unless all your party are together but I'm sure there is a good reason for it, but overall the service and food was great.
Scores would have been higher if my check would have reflected the advertised discount that I requested in my reservation. I would suggest that if you have a discount for a certain date and time, that you don't hide it. If you embrace the discount; and even tell customers about it when they happen to be ordering it, there is a good chance that they might add on other items, including drinks or become more frequent customers. The drinks here are very/very good. It was disappointing to get charged the full price when you are expecting the discount with the waiter looking at you smiling knowing there is a discount. Not cool.
My first time trying . My daughter ,son-in-law and 2 children have been several times. Service was excellent and helpful with beginners. Food was excellent also and pricing was fair. My grandsons really enjoyed the experience. We will return. Wish I had taken photos
Melissa was amazing!! She knew the menu and had solid recommendations. I enjoyed the professionalism from both her and the other staff. I hadn't been there in years and it was my fiance's first time there, she was able to help us make the most of our dinner experience by breaking down the menu and helping us choose the best food for us. We will definitely be back!
Everything was delicious, and the service was excellent. The place was busy and everyone was positive and on top of our needs before we knew we needed them. A great adventure close to home!
Every bite was exceptional, and the service matched!
We had a great time at The Melting Pot, as we always do! The food is amazing--even the salads, which feature house-made dressings. The four-course menu was delicious and more than enough food to get you full. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody!
Just can’t be disgruntled cooking you own meats served raw at the table. I love this place. The curry sauce is a treasure. The mojo pot is the best. I LOVE the alpine cheese with the brawn bran bread.
This was our first time here and we had an excellent time celebrating our 22nd Anniversary. We had the Date Night Romance Package and it was worth every penny. My wife loved every minute of the night.
Best location so far. Clean restaurant. Friendly manager. Courteous staff.
Great experience!! Our server was so attentive and knowledgeable. It was my husband’s first time at Melting Pot and it did not disappoint. The food was SO good! We had a great time! We will be back soon.
If you’re taking a date, The Romance Package is perfect! Tremendous value and what a memory you’ll be making! I can’t say enough nice things about this place and the manager and server (Michael) were extraordinary! 5 stars across the board!
We had a fabulous time. I think it was the best experience we've ever had in a restaurant.
My Grandkids love this place. I have been bringing them since they were very small. They are 13 & 15 now and still love it.
Just wish it were less expensive so we could come more often! Usually only make it about once a year.
It was amazing. I’ll be back
We had an amazing time at the Melting Pot! Our waitress Erica was AMAZING. She did an excellent job of explaining everything to us, as it was my first time dining there. We loved everything that we ate and would definitely go again for another special occasion!
My date and I loved the intimate setting. Our experience was fun and the food was delightful. Our server gave the right amount of instruction and attention. We are definitely making the drive back!
