    Is it worth a try?

    Found it....I was thinking of the Melting Pot

    Would still like to hear if anyone has tried the food there, how expensive is it....don't see prices on the menu.

    Just been reading reviews and they are mixed with the majority of people saying the main course is bland!

    most I've been reading really rate it highly!

    I'm very tempted to give it a try as something new

    Never done the Melting Pot in Orlando but have done several others. They have meat, seafood, veggie , cheese, and chocolate fondues. We like it and it is a bit pricey. But compared to Disney it isn't bad.

    I love The Melting Pot! Mom even requested it for her birthday dinner last month.

    You can sign up for email specials. You can usually get a 4 course meal (cheese fondue, salad, meat course fondue and then chocolate fondue) for about $50 per person. That's not including tax, gratuity or alcohol. We will usually go for the 4 course deal but I'm perfectly happy with cheese and chocolate :)

    I know this sounds terrible but Ive never had fondue :( I don't know if it's a big thing over here but if it is, I've led a sheltered life :lol:

    So what do you do? you get little bits of steak and dip in cheese or something?

    If you have cheese fondue you get cubes of bread which you dip into a melted cheese. The meat fondues normally come with your choice of either boiling broth or oil in which to cook your meat (I prefer broth) and then an array of dipping sauces to dip the cooked meat into. Chocolate Fondue normally has pieces of fruit that you dip into melted chocolate (sort of like those chocolate fountains if you've ever seen one) and may or may not also be served with pieces of either pound or sponge cake, also for dipping.

    With the cheese fondue, you get Granny Smith apples, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and bread. You can get more dippers for free.

    Chocolate fondue-strawberries, bananas, pound cake, marshmallows, Rice Krispie squares. Again you can get more dippers.

    The meats come with potatoes, mushrooms and broccoli.

    We have gone a few times. DW Sally and DD Alex both like it...me not so much. Not a big fan, especially at ours as it is pretty pricey for what you get IMHO.

    I can't say I like the sound of it at all.

    It's not for everyone. I think it's fun :) but the cooking of the meat portion is not fun

    The one in Richmond has several specials during the month. They have a ladies night out for $30pp and you get the 4 courses. That's the one we usually partake in
