    As usual, the food was amazing! We love every visit we have with the Melting Pot in Knoxville. The visit, however, our server was a bit too hurried. He removed items before we'd finished with them and didn't ask before removing them. He also seemed distracted and would forget to bring refills for drinks. Still, all in all, we had a wonderful time -- and even had a chance to show off one of our fav restaurants to new friends.

    Anniversary dinner with my husband. Excellent service. Knowledgeable staff. You have to make several choices and the menu can be confusing. Our server was very patient and helpful but I do recommend reviewing the menu before you go.

    We had two large tables and one waitress for each. One table completely finished our meal and paid prior to the second table getting their chocolate course. When we asked for extra vegetables that took a while because the focus throughout the meal seemed to be more on clearing the table. When our chocolate was delivered prior to us taking the first bite, our waitress one by one verified our orders to prepare the bill..,.

    The server was very young, would ask how we were doing every other bite, we couldn’t enjoy our meal she was to much! Then we told our little onw she had to wait for chocolate until after the meal ans she undermined us and brought her marshmallows while we had meat. I was livid. After this 3 year old that didn’t eat a bit of anything (except the marshmallows we did ask for) was charged $29.95 for her chocolate helping. SHE DIDNT EAT! we had to leave to talk so we weren’t Interupted every other bite. Special occasion and we couldn’t wait to get out of their so she would leave us alone. $300! So sad it was my 3 girls first time at fondue and memorable, not at all. I’m so disappointed.

    We enjoyed the 4 course meal very much. The appetizers with cheese all tasted great, and paired perfectly. The meats were amazing too. My favorite meats were the filet and chicken. Sauces I loved were curry, teriyaki, and green goddess. All the desserts were good. Service was top notch too.

    Our waiter was obnoxious and rude. Too pushy and ruined the graduation celebration we had we our son. Drink and food orders were inconsistent. Lastly, he over rushed us through the entire meal. Very disappointed. We love Melting Pot but doubt we’ll go back to this location.

    Absolutely loved the melting pot! It was a special treat! I didn’t realize they charge you the prix fixe even if everyone doesn’t want all 4 courses but think it works out cheaper that way anyway. It was expensive but worth it. Look forward to going back. Loved the spinach artichoke cheese and steak lovers the best!

    We took our daughter to The Melting Pot for the first time. She has a wonderful experience. The server provided exceptional service. The food was great and they’ve made some updates since last time we were there. There are more items on the dessert tray than before, and they were happy to refill items if we ran out. Great experience!

    By no fault of the restaurant, the noise level and rude, obnoxious behavior of a large party intruded on what is usually a lovely experience. They acted like they were at a rowdy sports bar-yelling, cursing, being verbally aggressive. The manager visited us to apologize, but there was little he could do. This will certainly not prevent us from visiting again-the other aspects of our visit we’re wonderful! Our server Caleb was spot-on and the food was scrumptious as always.
