Hi There, Thanks for taking the time to review us. In future, I'd recommend dipping in for daily happy hour in our bar - we've got some great food and drink options that are a bit more economical than the four-course dinner. Cheers, Amanda Lybeck...More

Had not been to The Melting Pot in years, never to this location. The service was very helpful with suggestions the cheese fondue was incredible, we used the oil cooking method, which cooked a little hot. The meal was very enjoyable.

Love the fondues -- you can choose what kind of broth you want, what entrees, what desserts, what cheeses, salads, etc, everything is really good - can't go wrong with any of it!

The last time my family visited The Melting Pot was over 6 months ago so I thought I would add another review on the restaurant. It seems Groupon comes out with a deal for Melting Pot every 5 months or so, so you can save...More

We sat in the bar, which accommodates cheese, salad and chocolate. There was zero wait to sit in the bar and we had a comfortable high table right next to the fireplace, which was perfect. Our waitress was very busy, but she stayed attentive. I...More
