This was our first time dining at the Melting Pot and we truly enjoyed ourselves! The experience was unlike anything we had ever been to. It seems like you get such small portions but we both left full.
Not something to do regularly but perfect for a date night or special occasion.

Where do I start???? My family LOVES The Melting Pot restaurant...its one of our favorite places to eat at as a family, so it was no question as to where to have my daughters 10th birthday party...It was so much fun having her little girlfriends attend, there were 26 in our party total. And the SERVICE! It was impeccable! Thank you to manager David for having our pre selected meals ready to go,to Chelsea for being simply the best server we have encountered - hands down. And the second server (Shawn, I think) was so good with the kids!! I just cant write enough. The other parents commented about bringing their family to The Melting Pot in the future. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The overall dining and food experience was great as always. What was disappointing for us was to go out expecting a nice evening and listening to a baby crying. Everyone heard it as it was extremely loud and the parents had no clue they were disturbing others. We were in a separate area and still had trouble hearing each other. The manager did not seem interested in doing anything about it.

Such a great experience. My husband loved every bit of his birthday celebration there. He was surprised that he enjoyed it so much. He even wanted a video of himself grilling his steak, lobster, shrimp and chicken. The food was well seasoned. We chose the Cajun seasoning. The bar tender was awesome as well as our waitress.

We will certainly be back.

We had 7 in our party and had made reservations. We flew in from Tampa to meet our children and in-laws. We have been to several Melting Pots and this one was our worst experience. I had reservations at 6:30, it took 35 minutes to get a table. Our server was slow, inattentive, non-explanatory, and not friendly. She wasn’t “non-friendly” to her co-workers however because we often saw her joking and laughing with them. I ended up explaining the cooking style to our table because she went through it way to quickly and with the least amount of effort as possible. It took 4 requests and 30 minutes from the time we were finally seated for my son to get his sweet tea. After the server came to the table the 4th time , she told us his tea was on “another tray”. We had our cheese going before he got his drink. We did not receive our raw meat to cook until we had been there for over 2.5 hours. It was quite frustrating. We had to go find the manager and ask him if our server could bring our food so we could start cooking it. He was also rude and told us that’s how it works there and that the kitchen was getting it ready. My daughter asked how long it takes for the kitchen to put raw meat on a plate? Lol. He didn’t apologize for the slow service. He did not even speak to us as we walked out. He was at the front counter, talking and laughing with staff. This location had Terrible customer service on 12/7/19. We will never go back to this location. Advice to people thinking of choosing this melting pot? Don’t. *if anyone from this location would like the names of the server and manager on duty, please let me know. Customer service and efficiency need work.

We absolutely enjoyed the experience. Food was amazing and there was definitely an abundance. Sharing the 4 course entree was plenty for my boyfriend and I. We were surprised to see that it wasn’t as expensive as other places sometimes tend to be. The waitress and bussers were all very nice and the tall booths made it feel super intimate. We will absolutely be back :) we accidentally stayed 10 minutes past closing but the staff didn’t rush us one bit (we apologize for losing track of time)

This place was absolutely delicious. I will say I was let down the fondue didn't stay on the table during our main course. We found that to be odd. The dinner was great and the drinks were delicious. We will go back. We spent about $200 with 4 drinks and desserts.

The server was informative yet inattentive. Our burner kept going out yet he took 25-35 minutes before returning. He took our drink order to not return for another 30-45 minutes. After finally talking to a manager (who appeared uninterested and showed racism) about our service, he felt not charging us for a $9 drink should suffice for POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE! It actually has the nerve to say his feelings were hurt! I then shared my feelings were hurt due to it being my daughter’s 18th (milestone) birthday and SHE chose Melting Pot. (I wanted to take her to 3 Forks or Nick & Sam.) Nevertheless, we will not return and cooperate has been informed.

Food was okay. Dessert was the best. Skip the salad dressings not great. The 18% gratuity automatically added not the greatest but I get it. I am a tipping person but I prefer to decide for myself and not be forced.

We used a Groupon, and even with that, we ended up spending almost $100 for taxes, tip, and "extra charges" (on top of the $180 we spent on the Groupon!). We had issues with our bill because it was not fully explained that there would be additional charges for certain food choices. The manager did end up fixing our bill, but I still feel that the quality/quantity of the food did not have the value of the price we paid. It was an experience we wanted to have, but will not go back again.
