Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible service. Our waiter was also the bartender, so his attention to our table fell very short. Never gave kids a drink until the 3rd time he came by and I had to ask again. Courses seemed to take FOREVER to come out. Had a 6pm reservation and didn't leave the restaurant til 8:30p. Waiter also didn't explain the meat cooking process nor gave us options of the broth. Luckily I was listening to another waiter explain the meat cooking at another table. Annoyed by the end of dinner

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meat is hard and tasteless. Only eatable food was desert. All of us left hungry and head to near by restaurant right after for 1/5 of what we paid at this restaurant. Very disappointed:-(

Highlights

Fondue is a fun and interactive dining experience - and for more than three decades, The Melting Pot has defined the niche across the American dining scene. The first Melting Pot opened in April of 1975 in Maitland, Fla. - just outside of Orlando. It was a cozy, quaint location and its first menu consisted of just three items: Swiss cheese fondue, beef fondue and a chocolate fondue dessert. However, as the restaurant's popularity expanded, so did its menu and ambiance. Mark Johnston, who was working his way through college as a waiter at The Melting Pot, noticed the popularity boost and - with the help of his brothers Mike and Bob - scraped together funding to open The Melting Pot of Tallahassee in 1979 (with the blessing of the original owners in Maitland... of course). The Tallahassee location grew enormously popular, and within one year its success paved the way for future franchise expansion. In 1980, the Johnston brothers decided to branch out and opened their second location in Tampa. As their business grew, the brothers began to consider franchising even more stores in order to expand. Then in 1985 Mark, Mike and Bob Johnston purchased all rights to The Melting Pot brand and established The Melting Pot Restaurants Inc. - the new franchise company. After a year of research and reorganization, The Melting Pot Restaurants Inc. began its franchise offering. From the start, the Johnstons were diligent in their search for energetic entrepreneurs who were as excited as they were about the concept and its potential. And their commitment to building a close-knit fondue family proved successful. Today, with more than 120 locations across 34 states and with more than 45 locations under development, The Melting Pot Restaurants Inc. is the country's premier fondue restaurant franchise.
