We did the BFF (best fondue friends) and it was so perfect. Cheese course, salad course, and dessert course. Definitely doing that again!

Love melting Pot!! It's not for everyone though. If you go the full meal route you have to cook you own meat, which is really fun!!

Food was amazing. My girlfriend and I went for a date and the waitress asked if there was a special reason we were there and we mentioned how our birthdays are coming up then she brought us a birthday surprise plate for free. It was our first time there and the waitress explained the menu very clearly for us cause it can be confusing at first.

I have eaten at this chain before. This particular location is well below the rest. First after taking our order we never saw our waiter again. Second we had to ask the hostess if she could get us a check. Third the manager brought the check and we were overcharged and she did nothing to correct the problem. This was far and away the worst customer service I have ever experienced in all my years of dining all over the world. The Corporate Office should be ashamed by this location.

I always love going to The Melting Pot. It never disappoints! I have gone for many a special occasion. Each and every time the service and atmosphere has been outstanding.
One would think it may have lost something due to Covid but there was nothing lacking!

All started with the rude hostess calling me to inform me I had two reservations and basically talking down to me like I was a child, I’d be appalled if someone with an attitude like her worked at my establishment, the. The server was nice but kept throwing my straw at me… little uncalled for

Went for Father’s Day. Food as usual was good. Haven’t gone to a melting pot in years and we were not disappointed in the food. It was just as we remembered. We were however extremely disappointed in the service!!!!
Our server rushed us thru courses. We asked her multiple times to slow down. Our reservation was at 8pm so I can’t imagine that another table was being seated after us. My son ordered a wine flight for which a different glass was supposed to be served with each course but she was late on two of the 5 of them.
As a complete aside and just another example of lack of attention to detail - there is a sign on the front door that says “masks required”. Masks are clearly no longer required as evidenced by the practice inside. This was fine but pay attention and take down the sign.

We love the melting pot. My daughter requested going there for her birthday. It’s always a wonderful experience. They even gave her chocolate covered strawberries in a box as a gift! The food is always delicious. It’s a bit expensive but we are happy to go for special occasions. I just wish it was closer!

We were seated in a very nice and private area. We were very grateful of this because there was a large group of underdressed teenagers who arrived that were being incredibly loud and rude. Food was great & so was the service.

Lots of food options and variety but with 2 adults and 2 young kids and the slower service, it was at least a 2.5 hr meal. For a special occasion or a date this is great and different to try once in awhile but the food is expensive.

It was a treat to spend Mother’s Day with my family at the Melting Pot! The food was outstanding and the enjoyably non-rushed two hours was super fun! Our waiter, Keith, was exceptional! The food was perfectly prepared, and delivered in well-choreographed intervals. Everyone but myself was new to fondue and Keith was patient and knowledgeable. Well done!

Our server, Keith, was an absolute gentleman and was extremely helpful in answering all our questions. Ambience was great and the food from the 4-course dinner for two filled us up more than we initially thought it would. Though a little pricey for what you get, the mood was great and the booths are comfy. Would definitely come back for another special occasion.

The waitress was very slow. We were at the restaurant for nearly two and a half hours most of that time waiting for our food. The meal was not worth the very high price we paid for it.
We originally made a reservation for December to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and the restaurant cancelled on us. we then rebooked for Valentines Day to make up for the dinner in December. We were very excited for nearly two months for the opportunity to dine there and was extremely disappointed.
