Love The Melting Pot! Everything is always so good. We got the Wisconsin Trio, and did the Coq au Vin cooking style this time. Did the dark chocolate with Disaronno for dessert. Takes about 2 hours to get through all four courses, but I love to linger and savor my meal, so this type of dinner is perfect for me.... More

We go to Melting Pot for very special occasions, as it's a little pricey and dinner takes about three hours. The wine list isn't as good as it was years ago, and they no longer let you bring in a bottle. There were four in our party, and we did the whole four course meal for about $45 - $50... More

I went by myself ... would have been a better experience if I was with a group. The Certified Angus Beef sirloin was my favorite. The bacon and jalapeño cheese was good, as well as the toffee milk chocolate.

We celebrated a special birthday on a Friday afternoon. We wanted to have dinner beginning at 5PM but the restaurant informed us that they only had 4:45 or 5:15 available. We were there from 4:45 until 8:30 and there were five other tables in the room and during that time that we were there only one table was used there... More

We were excited to get fondue and celebrate. The cheese and chocolate fondue were amazing. But the meat wasn't great and the price was outstanding for cooking everything yourself.

This visit was the best yet! Aaron was our server and made the entire meal a treat for our 12 year old son. The best deal is the "Crave" where you get the cheese fondue (your choice of which one), any of their outstanding salads and your choice of the chocolate fondue. This was the first time we also had... More

This was my second time going to a Melting Pot (first was in Littleton, CO) and my husband's first. Staff were all really nice, helpful, and friendly. Firstly, people going here have to understand, if you're doing the 4 course dinner, you're going to be there for a while; at least 2-3 hours. You should go expecting that and have... More
