the place was empty but the staff seemed really rushed to get us out. The manager was great but the staff was just off. We asked for extra sauces several times one we never received. We had to explain "just steak" several times when ordering the steak lovers meal. We are on Keto so low carb. We tried to make it easy and said for the cheese course just vegetables no bread still got bread. I don't think we were being complicated they were just distracted. Server was on his phone a lot.

The food was spectacular. We had a bad experience at another location with “older” food but this location everything tasted so fresh.

Our waiter was spectacular and was very friendly. He came around quite often and ensured our needs were met.

Fondue dining was a first for us! Our waiter had to explain a lot but did so with grace and patience explaining every detail. It was an enjoyable experience with massive amounts of food. We enjoyed the four course option with a variety of meats -- beef, chicken, salmon, shrimp. As we "cooked" them at the table, we have no room to complain. After one try we got it down and it was great fun. We selected a spicy starter cheese fondue with bacon. The description sounded a lot better than the reality. It was fine, just barely a hint of bacon flavor and not spicy at all. Our salads were fine with fresh ingredients and tasty dressings. Desert was included but we couldn't even finish the main course, so we took it home and have since enjoyed a chocolate delight with fruit for dipping. We ordered the wine special at $16 for a bottle of Chilean Cabernet. It was better than expected for the price.

Alas, Michael, Scott and Natalie are consistently our favorite servers. They’re all so knowledgeable and just fun. We’ve made it a tradition to take all of our visiting guests to the Melting Pot and would drive close to an hour to reach there. It’s well worth the time and effort.

Food was great as always. Service was very slow. Sat for 20 minutes after our cheese course was done before our salads were brought, and when our salads were done it was another 15 minutes until the main food was brought. We could hear the waiter chatting and talking and having fun at other tables, our drinks rarely got refilled, and we had to remind him several times of specific items we had asked for extra. Overall just very poor service

I went with my daughter, early so felt comfortable, except a table was seated right beside us (a partial partition), when the rest of the dining space was almost empty. I loved the cheddar/beer fondue and the variety of dippers...just enough to finish the fondue. The grilling meat was excellent. The large fresh vegetables included were a challenge to grill, and would have had to cook to long to be tender. Maybe something that works for other customers...just not me. The salad was excellent...great fresh mixed greens. I thoroughly enjoyed the decor and ambience...amazing transformation for a strip mall store. Cost would keep the the experience as an occasional special treat.

Nice! Not somewhere I would want to go regularly but the food is decent. The cheese fondue is good. Salads are just okay. I got the steak lovers and certain pieces of the meat were tough. The dessert was okay.

1st time at the Meting Pot and I really enjoyed it. You get a lot of food but it is expensive. Not knowing what to expect the waitress wasn’t that thorough in explaining . They have fondue as appetizers and dessert which are easy and fun. I didn’t realize the entree you had to cook yourself and then she asked how do you want to cook it? LOL I said what are talking about? So they give you raw food and you have to cook it yourself. All in all it was fun and amusing. Would be great to impress a date. Us old foggies just had some laughs.
