What You'll Get
Fondue is a ubiquitous staple of Swiss culture, matched only by neutrality, multiuse pocketknives, and the world's most easy-to-draw cheese. Go for a dip with this Groupon.
$25 for $50 Worth of Fondue and Steakhouse Fare
The menu invites guests to share four-course feasts of cheese fondue, fresh salads, chocolate fondue, and chef-selected entrees ready to be cooked at their table, such as Memphis-barbecue pork or sesame-crusted ahi tuna ($76–$79/couple; $38–$39.50/person). Single-course treats include a swiss gruyère and emmentaler fondue ($16 for one or two diners; $8 for each extra person) and entrees such as the French Quarter—a medley of Cajun-spiced filet mignon, chicken breast, shrimp and andouille sausage prepared in one of four gourmet fondue broths ($23–$23.50).
About The Melting Pot
When The Melting Pot originally opened in 1975 just outside Orlando, the location was cozy and quaint, but diners had only three options: swiss-cheese fondue, beef fondue, or chocolate fondue. However, as the restaurant grew in popularity, so did its menu selection and atmosphere. The restaurant first expanded four years later under the leadership of a Melting Pot waiter and enterprising college student named Mark Johnston, who teamed up with his brothers Mike and Bob to open a new outpost in Tallahassee. This location grew in reputation to pave the way for future franchise expansion. Today, the company—now owned by the trio of siblings—reigns as the premier fondue, wine, and drink restaurant, stretching across North America with more than 140 restaurants linked by underground tunnels. The restaurant's menu has also ballooned, and patrons can now expect six varieties of hot dipping cheese paired with salads, meats, and molten chocolate.
On a given night, groups of foodies gather around tables to nosh on signature four-course meals, from cheese-fondue appetizers and various salads to steaks and seafood cooked in a choice of healthy broth or oil. Birthday revelers and couples can share decadent evenings at private tables, capping off meals with chocolate desserts that have defined The Melting Pot for decades.
