Visited when we were in town on our honeymoon. We'd never been to a Melting Pot but figured we'd try it out for a change. They tell you ahead of time that the whole experience takes about 2 hours, and they aren't kidding! BUT, it...More

Our waitress took extensive time to explain the intricacies of the Melting Pot to us and the best way to order. The food was good, although the beef could use a bit more flavor in my opinion. We also couldn't figure out a good way...More

We visited as an early Mother's Day. We were seated right away at our reservation time. Our server was very knowledgeable and courteous. The food and portions were excellent.

The Restaurant is in a new development area. It is new but looks like it's cheaply built. Food and service are great. The experience is worth the money.

A lot bigger inside than it looks from outside. A little more open than other melting pots, which have more private seating for their tables. Worst part of experience was the wait. Had a reservation for 3:45 pm, did not get seated until 4:08 pm....More

Austin was fantastic. He kept checking on us to see if we needed/wanted anything. He explained everything well for my mother who had never been to a Melting Pot before. The Wisconsin Cheddar cheese selection was very tasty for our first course. I had the...More

Do you sell gift cards? If so, what amount (or range) would be sufficient or reasonable for a couple on a date night? (The couple we have in mind do not drink, so alcohol would not be included in their tab.) Thank you.
