    The menu looks complicated but amazing! You can make reservations online 60 days in advance too.
    Can't wait to hear what Johnie thinks

    I so wanted to go to one of those, but didn't really get a chance. It looks so yummy. I did have a friend go and they loved it, but considered it expensive.

    We've been several times and it is a wonderful place. The cheese fondue is wonderful, and as a starter can ruin you for the rest of the meal! :lol: It truly is filling and yes, we can easily make a meal out of it.

    The main fondue choices are extensive and equally wonderful. We have always chosen the court bouillion over the hot oil, as we don't much care for fried food. We put our vegetables in first and leave them the longest (potato is a bit tricky, and something that can easily be skipped for a more fondue friendly choice).

    It is a slow meal, perfect for visiting and having wonderful conversations. They have a decent wine list, as well. :yes:

    Their chocolate fondue is lovely too!

    I highly recommend this restaurant. :yes: It's not far from DTD either. It's in the Dr. Phillips area that is easily reached by taking Hotel Plaza Blvd, to Crossroads where you'll take a left (and move immediately to the right lane) followed by a quick right onto Palm Parkway which becomes Turkey Lake Rd. At the intersection of Turkey Lake and Sand Lake take a left and follow the road along for a short way. Melting Pot will be in the row of shops on the right. :yes:

    It can be pricey, but it's well worth the cost in both food, ambience and fun!

    You are given your menu choices raw. That's the point of fondue! LOL! You then skewer them on long forks, and then place them in your cooking medium of choice. You let them sit until you are pleased with the results and then eat them. There are several forks per person so you have a number of choices cooking at one time.

    It's not for those who are so hungry they can't wait to be fed! LOL! It takes a bit of time, but not excessive. Allows for the good conversation, I mentioned. :yes:

    The cheese fondue (and the chocolate) are prepared for you tableside, and you then just merrily dunk your bread, or fruit(and other wicked yummy bits like cheesecake!) (for the chocolate) and eat!

    So, you've taken the edge off your hunger with the cheese starter, and then you can enjoy your slower moving mail portion of the meal. :yes:

    We LOVE The Melting Pot!!! You can go for just chocolate if you want. It can get pricey. The Big Night Out is the cheese, salad, entree and dessert and runs about $100 for 2 people.

    They have been doing specials for the last year or so. They have a Ladies Night Out here and it's $25 for everything. Awesome, awesome deal.

    I like cooking my own food. It's fun and interactive. They do the cheese and chocolate for you. They bring you the salad. Just the entree is do it yourself. If you go to their website, you can get the email specials and they send you free chocolate coupons (for signing up, anniversary, birthday).
