The Melting Pot is an amazing experience! I never thought going out to eat and cooking my own food would be fun to me, but this place has it down! The food was great as well! Awesome place to experience with your friends and family!

My daughter and I ate cheese fondue and 'pure chocolate' fondue for lunch today. Our waiter was very attentive and explained everything to us. Both of the fondues and dipping items were delicious, but the chocolate fondue was fabulous!!
