The Melting Pot

Well after our horrible experience at Lazio's we decided after much contemplation to head to the melting pot for dessert. We arrived around 8PM, and the place was packed. We got lucky to get a table in the bar area right away.

Appearance: Slightly hard to find, hidden on the hill heading to Jordan's Furniture.The appearance is great. The dinning area is almost like private dining, and a very romantic atmosphere. The Bar area was small but very nice. All tables have built in hot plates for the fondue.

Food: I have been for dinner, and it can be confusing for the first timer, but the waiters are very helpful. I would recommend the Big Night Out to the first timer as it comes with all the courses for one flat price. But this time we were just there for dessert. For drinks My friend had a cappuccino, our wives had coffee's, and I tried the blackberry margarita. The cappuccino was weak, the coffee had a few grounds in it, and the margarita was excellent, but served in a daccari type glass with no sugar or salt on the rim. For Fondue we went with the original, and the chocolate s'mores. The original is chocolate with crunchy peanut butter mixed in, and is to die for. The chocolate s'mores was chocolate with marshmallow, and then lit on fire table side, and then mixed in gram crackers, very yummy!! Each fondue served with a plate of strawberry's, banana's, brownies, rice crispy treats, pound cake, marshmallows, and cheesecake. It was all excellent.

Value: The melting pot is very pricey, but you are paying for the experience. Dinner for 2 will cost you around $100 without drinks, but it will take you around 2 hours for your dinning experience. Our dessert fondues were $16 each for smalls, and dessert for 4 cost us $60 with drinks, and a generous tip.

Service: Our service was great. The waitress very pleasant, and willing to explain things for you. We were defiantly not rushed, even after we were done our food.
