The Melting Pot is my favorite place to go to dinner when I want lots of time to sit and talk with whomever I'm having dinner with. It's romantic if it's just for two, or great if it's 2 couples that want time to catch up or for 6+ to have a fun celebration. The courses come out slowly and... More

We were given a gift card and decided to use it to celebrate our anniversary. This turned out to be a great way to celebrate! They food was delicious and the service was great. We had the Absolut Stress cocktail before our dinner, and the wine flight with the 4 course meal. I wish more restaurants would offer this...we were... More

We went here for dinner. A nice relaxing dinner over cheese fondue, then salad, then dinner fondue followed by chocolate dessert fondue. Nice atmosphere with good wait staff.

I love the Melting Pot. It is a great place to spend a few hours with the ones you love eating multiple courses of fondue. The food is always good. We got the 4 course but were full after the salad. You get so much food it is nearly impossible to eat it all. We took the chocolate course home.... More

We are quite seasoned at eating at the Melting Pot and have done so all around the US. The Towson location was big and comfortable and we were seated quickly. Our server, Danny, was knowledgeable and sociable and all around great. The food was amazing, as always. If you're looking for a fun night out, definitely try this location and... More

Were in town and planned a nice evening dining out for our Anniversary. Had a very nice meal. Service was outstanding and the food did not disappoint. Same price point as always, however the portion sizes are decreasing to make up the difference. Still enjoyed the experience.

I love eating (and drinking!) here every Valentine weekend. The food and drinks are delicious and service is always great. We got the make your own fondue for dessert, and did dark chocolate with bailey's- it was to die for!

Nice place to go out for a date. One this i liked in particular was the variety of dipping sauces that they give you. Would definitely go back here and recommend it to people who have never tried the whole cooking raw meats in a hot cheese sauce thing :-P

Went there for my birthday. I will say the standout was the cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue- the one in the middle was.... ok. But after you have had warm cheese and bread and know you are getting chocolate.... it's hard to concentrate. Nice waiter. Great presentation. Pricey but really not that bad.
