Restaurant has been open since 1989 and though I have lived here that long, this was my first visit. Will definitely return as the service is impeccable and the food is divine.

The Melting Pot is Huntersville’s fine-dining destination, with mouthwatering offerings for people with all tastes. One bite is all takes to make a fondue believer out of you. Whether you’re arrived for drinks, cheese, and chocolate, or you want to experience the full 4-Course Experience, you’ll leave a fan of our gourmet fondue.

You’ll find our fondue restaurant right off Highway 77 in the Lake Norman area near Charlotte. We’re just a few miles from Charlotte Motor Speedway in the heart of NASCAR Country.

About the restaurant
The Melting Pot Restaurant in Charlotte is where fun is cooked up fondue style.

Our Charlotte restaurant is located in the Midtown neighborhood. Close to all Uptown hotels, Bank of America Stadium, Spectrum Center, Blumenthal Performing Arts center.

The experience is great in a group and romantic for couples. The intimate location provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale.
