    The food was fantastic. We did the four course meal. Fiesta cheese fondue, salads, vegetarian entree and land/sea entree, and dessert. The bananas foster dessert was phenomenal. The food portion size was generous. Our server was truly exceptional and I wish I recalled her name. This was for an anniversary dinner and we both really enjoyed it. Definitely make reservations in advance or you may not get a table. My only complaint is that we had made a regular reservation. They called us that afternoon to see if we wanted to upgrade to a package that guaranteed a private table and rose petals on the table. I declined the upgrade. When we arrived we were seated in a semi private table area and I thought nothing of it. At the end of the evening we received the check and saw we were charge for the upgraded package. I have two issues with this, the first is that I specifically said we did not want the package, and the second is that if they were going to charge anyways, they didn’t give the full package of flowers, etc. my fiancé does not like confrontation so he paid the additional $20 but it did leave a bad taste in my mouth. It seems like a gimmick to charge for something you did not request and specifically declined. Despite that the food and service made our evening wonderful.

    Good food but not worth the money. They also didn’t take any money off even though we didn’t purchase champagne or wine with the ultimate experience. It was also the same price to get the veggie entree as if we would’ve gotten meat.

    We went to Melting Pot on Thanksgiving for supper. We were also celebrating our first holiday together married and on our honeymoon. It was the best experience we could have asked for. So much fun and our booth was closed off to the rest of the restaurant which made it more special for us and there was hardly any noise. I highly recommend Melting Pot and will talk about it to all my family and friends. We will definitely come back! ☺️

    We stopped in for lunch while on vacation. That it was mid day we thought it would be okay with younger kiddos. They definitely enjoyed the experience. The staff was not warm or inviting at all, from checkin until checkout. If you want a truly enjoyable experience I would visit another Melting Pot.

    Visiting from out of state. The food and cocktails were delicious, but our server (coincidentally also named kennedy, hey girl hey!) truly made our night phenomenal. She was attentive, friendly, and offered fantastic suggestions. Kennedy made our last minute dinner plans the highlight of our trip. See you next vacation!!

    Excellent place for a nice, relaxing meal. My only complaint is we were seated on an aisle where the clean-up crew walked back and forth constantly with the cart full of dirty dishes. The restaurant was not full by any means, so we could easily have been seated in a less congested area. Otherwise, the food is excellent and the fondue experience is a nice change from the usual restaurants in the area.

    Loved having a reservation! Gatlinburg was crazy and I was not interested in waiting in another line. Being able to make the reservation was half the excitement! The steak was great quality . Our 7 year old had a ball cooking her own meal - she ate a lot, including the vegies! I like that they let her eat from our "Dinner for 2 combo" . It was enough for all 3 of us. This is definitely a special occasion destination in my mind. It is a unique dining adventure.

    The service was mediocre and seemed rushed. The cheese came lukewarm. There was some wilted lettuce in the salad. There was very little instruction on cooking the meats beyond a index card with times. The dessert was excellent so if I return it would only be for dessert. The prices for the rest of the dinner aren’t justified by the quality of the meal or service otherwise.

    We love The Melting Pot in Gatlinburg, TN. We make a 4 hour trip every year to spend a few nights in GB and celebrate our anniversary. MP is our “fancy” dinner out and they never fail to provide excellent service and food. We have taken our kids too (youngest age 4) and it is a neat experience for them, but I would stick to a cheese and chocolate “meal” instead of the full 4-courses depending on your child’s attention span.

    Cheese fondue was just stacked with a ridiculous amount of plain bread that looks like it was cut from a loaf from food city . We also ordered a charcuterie board which came with just prosciutto so we feel like we wasted a bit of money between the two

    Went there for our 1 year anniversary and thought the food was delicious especially the cheese and dessert fondues. We paid extra for the private dining area with rose petals which was nice and quiet, but our view was pretty much the parking structure outside. If we went again, I probably wouldn’t choose to sit there again. Also they ask online if there’s a special occasion or celebration so I put that it was for our 1st anniversary thinking they’d do something small to celebrate, but there was nothing. Just a small gesture of writing “Happy Anniversary” in chocolate on the dessert plate or something would have been nice like many other restaurants do since they ask. Especially for the amount of money we paid for dinner. Just my opinion and suggestion, not something that would prevent us from going. But overall it was very good and a fun experience with the fondue :)
