My mom, sister, and I enjoyed a meal at Melting Pot over Christmas break. We chose the cheese and chocolate option, which included delicious cheese fondue with bread, fruit, etc. and absolutely delectable chocolate fondue with everything you can imagine to dip into chocolate, which included pecans and was flambed! Bananas and pound cake were my favorites, but the strawberries,... More

I had not been to Melting Pot in a long time and was reluctant when we went. I was pleasantly surprised with my visit. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy. Our server, Ian was knowledgeable and assisted us in finding the fondue choice that best fit our requests. He was prompt with his service, cautioned us away... More

Our server Ian explained all procedures and was helpful when we had questions about the menu. He was attentive but never intrusive; and made the evening relaxing... More

We followed our favorite server, Tyler Johnson, from Ruby Tuesday in Lenoir City, to see him at The Melting Pot. We LOVE them both!!

My husband and I visited The Melting Pot for the first time recently. We were so pleased with the total experience. We especially liked how attentive our server was. He was so kind and helpful.

Our group of 20 stopped in at the Melting Pot for dessert. YUM! The dark chocolate is so delicious. Service was very good. I like that it is tucked into the lower level of the building and was apparently an ice house at one point in time. Plan to visit again for dinner, but you can't go wrong just stopping... More

I've been to several melting pots in different states and this is the first one I didn't care for. The floor was carpeted but I could feel holes in the floor through it and almost tripped. They skimped on the cheese and chocolate fondue compared to the other locations. We always got half a bowl whereas here we only got... More

My wife and I enjoyed our evening at the Melting Pot in Knoxville. The service was outstanding. Jamie, our server was a delight, just attentive enough and knew all about the menu. The food was as usual very good and there was more than the two of us could eat I read reviews of this Melting Pot on their website... More

This was the third Melting Pot we've been to, and I think it's the best. I really liked the atmosphere in this old building in the historic district. The service and the food were both wonderful! It's a fun dining experience. Takes about 2 hours to go through all 4 courses.
