I went by myself ... would have been a better experience if I was with a group. The Certified Angus Beef sirloin was my favorite. The bacon and jalapeño cheese was good, as well as the toffee milk chocolate.

The Melting Pot is the original fondue restaurant where guests can enjoy several fondue cooking styles and a variety of unique entrees, salads, and unforgettable desserts. But we’re more than just a restaurant; we’re a unique destination offering a dining experience unlike any other. Our fondue restaurant is perfect for the everyday occasion, from a night out with friends or a romantic dinner with your special someone to a promotion celebration with colleagues. Enjoy a wide range of seasonal and fixed menu items, and you choose the way you want it all. Of course what’s delicious food without a selection of wines and craft beers to really make it great?

No matter what the occasion or how many courses you choose to partake in, The Melting Pot provides an unforgettable, interactive dining experience that turns moments into memories. From the time the first piece of bread is dipped to when the last nibble of dessert is savored, you'll have the time to discover new things about people you thought you knew, and those you're getting to know.
