It was too dim, the strange music was too loud, and my husband and I both got sick afterwards.

Our server Victor was very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was pretty good. The only item I didn’t care for was the teriyaki sirloin. The veggies were fresh. We didn’t have dessert. We took my dad who is 76 and had no idea what it was. He enjoyed it and Victor explained it to him well.

We had a wonderful time at the Melting Pot!
Had our regular Big Night Out - food and ambiance did not disappoint.
Our server, Nick, was attentive, very friendly and not intrusive.
Only complaint was the table we were seated at. It was small so the fondue pot was set a bit too far for those of us with short arms.
We've been coming here for almost 20 years and will continue to come back

We love this location more than anything! We have been going here since moving to NC. The cost is starting to get a little too high for us. So we might be going less. Retired folks can’t pay $150 for meals that frequently. We are so grateful for Matt and Chris. We love them and their staff.

It's over rated. The place is interesting for those only looking to have a new experience. Appetizers and desert was "fun", not yummy just "fun". However, you will need to cook your own entrée. NOT fun. It's all protein . No sides. The waiter was super nice and tried his very best to explain the menu and the process. However, he might have had a speech impediment and with the mask on it was impossible to understand what he was saying. I did not want to be rude and ended up nodding and guessing to everything he said, just went with his flow. Last but not least, it is too expensive. It is not worth the money. The margaritas were good :)!

Everything was good, my only complaint is the vegetable selection with the cheese fondue. There was one cauliflower floret, carrots and a lot of celery. A little more variety with vegetables would be nice, especially for the price.

Made reservations too celebrate my birthday. Was my first dine-in restaurant experience sauce Covid outbreak. Was only table in my section - closest occupied table was septated by a walk in an entirely different section;. Was impressed by social distancing measures taken by staff, who also wore their face masks entire time. Was 100% comfortable dining at my table without a mask. Will definitely be returning in the near future.
