We visited for Easter lunch as we have before. The service was best described as inconsistent, while they were willing to modify the menu for shellfish allergies, the server was not often seen for drink refills and we had to ask several times for a sauce refill. We also struggled with the burner keeping the cooking pot at temperature, hopefully... More

The food was delicious and the service we received was outstanding.. Next time I'm in the area this will be on my to do list. It's a little pricey if you go by yourself, but for two people to me you get your money worth.

The Wisconsin cheese was delicious. Meats were fresh. The original chocolate with the chocolate and peanut butter was to die for. We always have wonderful customer service when we come here.

We made a last minute decision to cancel a reservation that we'd previously made elsewhere so that we could eat at The Melting Pot. We had had fondue previously so we knew it was going to be a late dinner. The staff was very attentive, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was great for talking and enjoying your partner....

I don't know if they gave my son the wrong ravioli with his kids "Fundue", but his was so spicy he couldn't eat it. For those with friends or family that like spicy foods while you do not, be forwarned that anyone sharing a pot with someone who gets the Caribbean meal, will have to endure their spicy foods because...

The food is amazing and atmosphere was very nice. Leave plenty of time to really enjoy the experience. Josh was our server and OMG his dynamic personality was just the right fit for my husband and I. We had an excellent rapport right away and he kept the fun going all evening. He kept us laughing with his hysterical stories... More

Interesting concept and could be fun cooking then eating your food. Mixed feelings though Thought the portion they provide wasn't enough for the cost involved. Could be sloppy too while eating. Other thing is I am not a fan of sharing food or dipping food with others. That is not my preference.

We had the BEST experience yet! We are regulars, we celebrate every special occasion here. This time we were celebrating Valentine's Day early and the exciting news that we have a baby boy on the way. Cody was flawless and very knowledgeable!

Description
It's hard to believe that The Melting Pot has been on Kings Drive for 25 years! During that time, we have become known as a favorite restaurant by many in Charlotte and the surrounding region. We have built a solid reputation of phenomenal service through our expert servers, knowledgeable bartenders and our attentive managers. In fact, our regulars drive to our restaurant year after year from as far as Hickory, Asheville, South Carolina and even Virginia just to get their "Melting Pot fix." Make us part of your tradition, too! As for the fondue experience, well, you just have to try it for yourself. It's dinner and entertainment all stirred into one! While you can choose which courses you'd like, most guests indulge in our 4 course dinner including cheese, salad, entree and chocolate. Our creamy cheese fondues are prepared tableside. Each cheese is served with artisan breads and seasonal vegetables for dipping. Our fresh salads feature The Melting Pot's signature dressings. Customize your entree to your specific pallet, as entree items and seasonal vegetables are cooked at the table in one of our four premium cooking styles and a plethora of dipping sauces. From Thai peanut marinated tofu to filet mignon, we've got an option for everyone. For dessert, try the Yin & Yang chocolate, Flaming Turtle or choose from many other delicious options. And don't forget our famous Garlic and Wine Seasoning and signature chocolate covered strawberries to take home. The Melting Pot is a unique place to celebrate the special occasions in your life. Our Midtown location is known for its secluded booths and seating areas which are perfect for date night or double date night. Our quiet, intimate atmosphere offers a romantic place to sit close to the one you love. One of our recent guests said it best: The Melting Pot is "a great place to spend quality time because if you get a complete dinner, it will take about 2-3 hours." (Jeff R. Charlotte, NC, Trip Advisor, 3/14/2013) We also offer large party areas for milestones, birthdays, ladies night out or work celebrations. The Melting Pot is a cozy space to catch up with family over fondue without interruption. It's also fun to bring your kids, dress up and make a special night out of dinner- just because! Did you know that The Melting Pot Charlotte is vegetarian friendly and gluten free friendly? All of our menus can be customized and our servers and kitchen staff are happy to cater to any dietary restrictions or allergies without missing a beat. The Melting Pot naturally offers many healthy and lower calorie options as well. Regardless of diet, we want all of our guests to indulge, guilt free, and have the perfect night out. Whether vegetarian, carnivore or somewhere in between, our wide variety of menu items will leave you happy and satisfied. We are located right across the street from Little Sugar Creek Greenway and Uptown is minutes away. Fondue is the perfect precursor to seeing a ballet or Charlotte Symphony performance at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. It's also fun to bring the kids in for cheese and chocolate after seeing a movie at the IMAX theater at Discovery Place. Or come in for four courses after a day at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Mint Museum, Levine Museum of the New South or the Harvey Gantt Center for African American Arts and Culture. We are close by Bank of America Stadium where the Panthers play football, and right around the corner from Time-Warner Cable Arena, where the Bobcats play and soon-to-be Charlotte Hornets play basketball. Uptown Charlotte is also home to Checkers Hockey, Knights Baseball and Hounds Lacrosse.
