This is one of a chain. The menu is cheese fondue, meat and chocolate fondue as 3 separate courses. We avoid the cheese as it leaves room for the meat and the chocolate which my grandchildren prefer. The dips are steak, pork and shrimp. We...More

This was a different but very satisfying dining experience. Appetizer, main course, dessert. Simply amazing. Really nothing fancy but executed so well. Delicious. All of it. Stupendous service. It was not cheap but it was money well spent. Will be back.

There's just something about a fondue pot that invites conversation. Invites laughter. Invites coming together. At The Melting Pot Restaurant, we offer a dining experience like no other. A unique, interactive dining experience creating memorable moments with family and friends. From the time the first piece of bread is dipped and the last piece of dessert is savored, you'll be graced with the time to discover new things about people you thought you knew. And, those you're getting to know. We are the premier fondue restaurant where guests can enjoy a choice of fondue cooking styles and a variety of unique entrees, salads and indulgent desserts. It's up to you. Tailor your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie. Whether you're celebrating romance, a birthday or anniversary - or just a night out while the babysitter is in charge - we offer something truly unique. An opportunity to interact and connect while experiencing all fondue has to offer. We look forward to your visit.
