We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Melting Pot. We went with the Ultimate Packaged and loved every part of it. The staff was very professional and super friendly. We would love to visit again during our next trip to Gatlinburg, TN!

The food was good as always, but the service was horrible. We were seated in the bar area. I liked that we were able to people watch while we ate, but we felt like an after thought to our server throughout our meal. I believe her name was Isadora, apparently we were in addition to her normal section. At one... More

Fun evening, we spent the greater part of 2 hours moving through the interactive 4 course dinner. Fresh veggies, fruit and meats. Delicious cheeses and great beer and wine selection. Not too busy but they seemed short staffed.

The melting pot is a good place to have dinner that's a little different from the norm. It is a little pricey for what you get. It is a good place to have a date.

Jonathan (from Miami) was an excellent waiter. He took time to explain everything so well. He kept us comfortable and made sure we had drinks etc. His personality was great. The restaurant was quiet and had wonderful atmosphere. The food was so good and of course, the chocolate to die for (Flaming Turtle chocolate).

The place was half empty, but they were turning people away in droves; why? Some of the staff did seem undertrained (but not our server), is that the issue: trained staff? Any way, it was rather bizarre. Food was excellent, but probably not good price to quality for most people. Our family loved it. Expect to be dining for 2+... More

Dinner reservations where important as we had a party of 7. Dinner was an experience enjoyed by the whole family and not rushed at all. Dinner lasted 3 hours and service was impeccable from a young man from Miami. The size of our party allowed us to taste multiply dishes amongst ourselves and enjoyed the room to have our own...
