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.

This was my first experience at a melting pot restaurant. Our waiter was very polite and knowledgeable of the menu. This would be an awesome place for a first date. It's a fun way to interact with the people you're with while cooking your own food. The experience is something I would definitely do again. The prices are a little... More

We met friends here last month. The cheese and chocolate were both delicious. We had a fairly large group, and that is a bit challenging. Maybe it was the site of the group, but it took forever to get our food. I almost got the feeling that the server was having to do all the food prep. Makes sense because... More

This is a wonderful place for a unique experience. My teen age boys loved it. The fondue cheese and cooking your own entree in a broth of your choice was amazing. Highly recommend the 4 course meal. Ambience was delicate and romantic. Service was spectacular

My husband and I have been here a few times and have always had a great experience. We went here for our one year anniversary and they had a card waiting for us at the table and were congratulated by our waiter and the manager that stopped by. As always, the food was amazing from start to finish. We have... More

Very overpriced for the amount and quality of food you receive. Our bread we received with the cheese fondue for the appetizer was stale. The Caesar salad had way too much dressing and was bland and had some sort of sweet peanuts in it? The staff tried to sale The Melting Pot brand of seasoning during the whole meal, which... More
