Start with a classic cheese fondue ($16, serves two) and a salad ($6). Cheese fondues range from the traditional swiss-cheese fondue, made with gruyère and emmenthaler cheeses, to the unorthodox fiesta-cheese fondue served with tortilla chips and made with cheddar cheese, Mexican herbs, jalapeño peppers, salsa, adventure, and spice. Every cheese fondue is served with pieces of fresh bread, vegetables, and apples for dipping. Individual entrees range from $19 to $29 and include seafood and a vegetarian option, cooked in your choice of four cooking styles and with multiple dipping sauces. Choose from chicken, filet mignon, pork tenderloin, and duck in various combinations, or opt for seafood entrees such as the trio of white shrimp, scallops, and cedar-plank salmon ($21) or lobster tail (add to any entree for $15). The Melting Pot offers a munificent vegetarian entree, which includes edamame or onion rings, artichoke hearts, asparagus, portobello mushrooms, and more ($19). If that weren't enough, there's an entire menu dedicated to desserts and another to dessert drinks.

- It was our first fondue experience, but our server did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable and explaining all of the different options. There are many, many decisions to make when ordering... but otherwise, it is an awesome dining out experience and the food was delicious. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 05/02/2010
- I love this place! It's so much fun to go to with a big group of friends. I thought the service was very friendly and prompt and I would definitely return! – EmilyF, Kudzu

The Melting Pot
The Melting Pot transforms date nights and friendly outings into rich, sensory experiences by gathering diners around communal pots of fondue and adorning their tables with sumptuous four-course feasts of cheese, salad, chocolate, and steakhouse fare. Bubbling pots of emmentaler, lager-laced cheddar, and creamy fontina quell urges to engage in skewer swordfights as guests eagerly dip and slather slices of crisp granny-smith apples or crusts of artisanal bread. Creamy peppercorn ranch and decadent burgundy-shallot vinaigrette drape plates of crispy salad greens and roma tomatoes before servers parade out the pièce de résistance—fresh shrimp, sesame-crusted ahi, and succulent slices of filet mignon that bathe in roiling pools of coq au vin and bourguignonne. As a tasty digestif, dessert-savvy diners coat brownies, marshmallows, and unlucky car keys in cauldrons of milk, dark, and white chocolate.
