At first, we were seated and then ignored, until we walked back to the host stand to request for a server. It was a slow evening at 7:15 pm so it was puzzling why service was slow. The food was ok. The ambience was nice and quiet as it was a slow night.

Great as always. We were there early so the service was fantastic. We skipped the main course this time and just got the cheese and chocolate fondue. Both were excellent.

Don't count on being seated anywhere near your reservation time. Also expect rudeness from the short, woman manager. Horrible experience.

The Melting Pot is always such a fun experience! While it is quite pricey, the cheese and chocolate fondues are delicious. I did not care much for the entrée fondue, but that might just be me. We went there on a Saturday evening, and made a reservation for 6:30. It was not too busy when we got there though. Towards the end of our meal, I noticed there were a lot more people waiting to be seated. I overheard someone say that they had been waiting for an hour. So, to be safe, I would make a reservation.

The food was amazing. We got the 4 course meal and we (tried) to eat everything. Everything was so delicious that by the time we got to the chocolate fondue we were already so full we couldn’t even enjoy it like we should have.
The manager came to check on us twice which was really nice.

I started coming to The Melting Pot just over 15 years ago & have loved it ever since!!! It is a great place to go for a celebration, romantic date night, girls night out, or just because the kids did great on their report cards! For whatever the reason, or for no reason at all, head on over to The Melting Pot! Just don't forget to wear stretchy clothes & arrive HUNGRY!!!

I’ve been going to Melting Pot for probably 20+ years. The experience is always good, even when we go to the one in Myrtle Beach during our annual trek to the beach. It’s an interesting concept for dinning and that’s what makes it fun for an occasional outing/date/special occasion. The experience can be quaint for two and communal for a larger group. The selections are somewhat limited, but you really dont need anymore than what’s offered (not like Cheesecake Factory encyclopedia menu :-} ). Plan on spending a couple of hours and remember to engage your server. Most have been friendly, interesting and open to dialog. Our server last evening showed up at the desert course with two flutes of champagne; what a nice surprise.
If you haven’t been, give it a try. If you haven’t been lately, put it on your short list of dining experiences for the near future.
