The burner wouldn't get hot enough at our table. We were concerned that the meats wouldn't cook correctly. The food was good, but you don't get very much. Certainly not worth the high prices they charge.

The "turtle" is awesome--chocolate, caramel, nuts--all melted--they bring you pound cake, strawberries, bananas, marshmallows for dipping--awesome!
