    I’m not, but my spouse and three teenage daughters are vegan. Melting Pot’s vegan cheese and chocolate are excellent even by non-vegan standards. Great service: they provided extras of the pretzel bites and whatever other dipping morsels we requested. I didn’t love cooking my own entree at the table, but everyone else seemed to like it. So the “full experience” took three hours, but it was very charming and cozy and sophisticated and homey all at once. I won’t eat here every trip but it’s definitely similar to experiences I’ve had in Switzerland and France.

    Very good restaurant for a one time experience. I wouldn’t go more then that because all of it could basically be done from home and for 300$ after tip I can say that it’s the most expensive meal I’ve taken my wife to eat. That being said, if you’ve never done it before, I’d highly recommend giving it a try. Especially for a birthday, anniversary, or any special event that you would like to share with a significant other. My waiter was great. He was there enough to take care of our needs, but not so much that it was overbearing.

    Definitely a must! A wonderful experience, great for Date nights and Anniversaries. Reservations in advance is the best way to get in. They book fast and a lot of walk-ins walked out due to not having Reservations and the next available time was too far out for their liking. Make a reservation and enjoy a romantic evening in Gatlinburg.

    Not the service I am used to at the Melting Pot. I wasn't given any choice in substitutions due to out of stock menu options. I was charged for things I shouldn't have been. Probably won't go back to this location but still love The Melting Pot and will definitely visit again.

    Food was okay, but the quality has definitely gone down. Drinks sat empty and we were never checked back on until it was time to pay. People around us were playing loud videos on their phones and not once did we see a manager check on our dinner which for this price point is disappointing.

    Noise level was up and felt rushed, they were checking around and looking at times ( I think they were running behind schedule) … It made us feel like gotta hurry! The noise level was louder and not as calm.

    I’ve always wanted to try this place and it definitely exceeded expectations. Worth the price, and I definitely recommend trying to get one of the private 2 person booths! The celery for the cheese and the marshmallow from the dessert were the only things we didn’t finish.

    Food and service were both excellent. We come here every time we come to Gatlinburg. My only problem is that we had reservations, arrived a few minutes early, and our table was in the bar. I was disappointed we did not get to sit in the actual restaurant area.

    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.
