I had been to a Melting Pot years ago when we leaved on the East Coast. Loved it but remembering being miserably full afterwards, which obviously I ate too much. :) First thing to know this is an expensive dinner, but well worth it as you are there for a couple hours. With a son in high school and a... More

I convinced my daughter to go here with me during a recent stay in Minneapolis. She had already been (and wasn't impressed), but I've always wanted to go so she relented. We were able to be seated quite quickly (Sunday evening, fairly early). The little "cubbies" to sit in are interesting but not very comfortable. Additionally, ours was just next... More

We've been here a few times, but most recently enjoyed an outing there with friends. The four of us had a blast talking over fondue & drinks. The staff is great - tending to just 4-6 tables at a time, allowing for great service. We had salads, cheese, main course and dessert fondue. The Wisconsin cheese fondue was wonderful with... More

We had a large group of ladies and we selected the Classic Feast. What a great way to try a variety of items. I must say, my absolute favorite was the dessert course! Mmmm, I need to go back and have more dessert! My favorite was the pound cake in the Yin and Yang. They were extremely accommodating!

If you're looking for something different especially for a special occassion give The Melting Pot a try and give yourself 2 hours to really experience it correctly. Not a place to go if you're in a hurry. Go before 6:00 to start your evening in the bar and get 1/2 off your drink while you wait for your table. The... More

We visited the Melting Pot to celebrate our anniversary. It was a nice experience, as it was a several course experience, and we did not feel rushed. We had cheese, entree and dessert fondue courses, and all were very good, although the cheese was surprisingly our least favorite. Our waiter was good and took the time to explain how to... More

Went with 2 teenage sons and my husband. Bread to dip in cheese was dry. Ask for all pretzels, they were soft. Waiter was not attentive. We had to ask for more sauce. He never asked if we needed more veggies too. He brought out the chocolate sauce premade, not much of an experience for expensive price. We are not... More

Glad I tried the Melting Pot, but don't go if you're really hungry..lol it might be awhile. I went with my sister and the cocktails were way too strong for my liking and were about $10 a piece. The food was good, but everything is in dipping size. I didn't realize the meat comes raw and then you cook it.... More

We go to The Melting Pot once a year over the winter holidays! It is the perfect venue for a good meal on a cold winter night! What could be better than dipping apples and bread into a bubbling pot of melted cheese fondue? Great for a group as you can order two different fondues at the table! The sauces... More
