Dinner at The Melting Pot was a perfect way for a family to spend 3 hours together, reflecting on good times in our lives and sharing dreams of the future. We vowed to try to reconnect like this once a month. I can't say this...More

Great time to be had. The experience took me back to the 70's when my parents had parties at home with friends and the fondue pot on the table! And just like back then it was super fun! Great way to be social and eat...More
