Great food & Great service!
The food was fantastic as always but our service was the best I've ever had!
Great food and service. Nice clean and friendly restaurant
great service, wonderful food
We were a party of 10 including 2 small children. I made reservations for a Sat. lunch following a graduation. Reservations were a snap, and later when I added 4 more people they had no problem accomodating us. We had a private dining area set off from the rest of t he restaurant which was perfect. Our server, Tori, could not have been better in her suggestions, interactions with us, and checking back to see if we needed anything else. The manager also stopped by several times to see how things were going. We ordered 3 cheese fondues, and one in the party ordered steak. We ended with 2 chocolate fondues that were wonderful. No one went away hungery and sitting around a big table made for fun conversation. I would definitely come here again!
Pricey but taisty all in all great experiance would recommend

The food was great, but this meal was a great opportunity to get the kids to put down their electronics and talk. The melting pot keeps their hands busy while keeping meal time calm enough for great conversation.
Outstanding Unlimited Cheese and Chocolate.
Great way to sample each of their cheese offerings. Always an excellent dining experience

The family and I went for the their endless cheese and chocolate. We had a wonderful server and everything was delicious as usual. We will definitely be returning.
We had a wonderful time- the service was great as was the food. Our 3 and 6 year old loved it and enjoyed FUNdue as they fondly renamed the experience. Morgan was our server and she was great!
Another fantastic experience!
We've been coming to the Fredericksburg Melting Pot for years and not once has it been a bad experience. The staff is always knowledgeable and attentive. The manager is engaged and has always taken care of our special needs without a single complaint. We plan to return again and again without hesitation.
Service was spot on. Manager was on the ball making sure everything was perfect. He didn't ask anyone to do something he wasn't going to do himself. He was changing lightbulbs!

Mack, our server tonight was by for the best server we have had to date at the melting pot, and we come there quite often. He was attentive, friendly, and a pleasure to have as a server tonight. Thanks for making our night enjoyable.
Made my four year anniversary absolutely amazing and unforgettable. Thank you.
We were celebrating two adult birthdays of a party of 8 in which 3 were young kids. The staff was on their toes - by the end of the meal our waitress (without us telling her) had picked up on the kids names which I find remarkable. The management stopped by to make sure our dining experience was going well. I just love the Fredericksburg Melting Pot and its entire staff. Thank you for the wonderful dining experience.
Top notch as always
They have the best food and service . We have been coming to The Melting Pot for years at multiple locations and this time was no different. Excellent.
The Melting Pot is our go to celebration spot.
We love the staff, the ambiance, and the style of dining. Never had a complaint for the restaurant.
Great place for special occassions.
My family has been a regular guest at this establishment and we have never been disappointed. The food and service has always been first class and we will continue to go there.
No words could do this establishment justice. We had an absolutely wonderful time, the food was amazing, our table was super cozy and romantic, and our service was phenomenal! The manager came by the table several times throughout the evening to check on us and was such a sweet man. Our waitress was on of the friendliest people id ever had the honor of being served by! Overall I'd give this a 100/10 😉 wonderful place and I can't wait to return!
First time with kids
The Sunday kids eat free is a great deal. We went for lunch so it was a perfect time for families. My husband and I have been many times. The kids loved it and we will be back with the whole family.
Does not honor reservations!
Melting Pot does not in any way honor reservation times. We showed up a few minutes before our reservation to a very busy waiting area, and proceeded to watch everyone in the waiting area including a person with a reservation 15 minutes later than mine get seated before us. There is absolutely no point to a reservation at the Melting Pot because you are just going to get seated in line with the people that just walk in the door. Save yourself the hassle and just show up 40 minutes before you want to be seated.

The waiter was the best, giving out recommendations of the best meals and making us feel comfortable, enjoyed every min of it
Outstanding food and service. They also did a great job with my advanced requests which made the night very special.
The service we received on Saturday Jan.30 was phenomenal. Our waitress, Morgan, was very accommodating, she made sure we were appropriately catered, she was definitely very friendly, and kept the evenimg spirit up!
Great romantic dinner
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Melting Pot. Even though the restaurant was crowded we felt secluded in our own romantic booth. The waiter and staff were all very friendly and helpful. The fondue was fantastic!
Awesome Date Night
My husband and I have been to the melting pot several times and it is never disappointing. The food is always delicious and the service is great. What I love about the melting pot is your not rushed to get in, eat your food and leave. You can take your time and enjoy each others company. It's also a lot of fun to cook your own food so it's done just the way you want it. I would recommend the melting pot to anyone looking for something different and wanting to enjoy great food. Yes it can be a little pricey but you get what you pay for. I have never left there hungry or wanting more.

I cannot understand why people pay these prices for boiled meat. I did not enjoy a single one of the dipping sauces they provided. If you're going to make people boil unseasoned filet mignon one bite at a time, you should really consider offering a good dipping sauce. I would never return unless going solely to enjoy desert. The chocolate was good. Not $200 good though....Our server was great! My displeasure with the experience rested 100% on the meal.
Very enjoyable dining experience. This is dining as you leisurely spear breads, fruits, and veggies into wonderful cheese and cook an assortment of top grade meats/seafood in flavorful broths and accompany them with well matched sauces. Save room for the delectable chocolate finale. Great food, service, and wine make for a wonderful evening.
Our GoTo date night!
We have gone to the Melting Pot at least once or twice a month since we moved to this area. The owner and servers are all absolutely wonderful and I have never had better service at any restaurant! Needless to say, we are regulars for life.
ah, it was too much reading, too many decisions. the cheese fondue and bread was killer. get that, then run out as fast as you can.
Good alternative to steak and seafood dinners
Booking it through opentable was a breeze. The owner of this restaurant was great. He called us to confirm our reservation, and gave us a brief explanation of the menu prior to our reservation. It was busy when we went, we waited 10 minutes to get our table and be seated. Our server was average, unfortunately the server the table next to us was excellent and overshadowed ours. Overall food was delicious, timing of servings was quick, and server was average. One note she forgot to give us champagne which we had to ask for, when it was included in our meal, and it was New Years Eve and the server next to us didn't forget the group next to us. Other than that it was good.
Happy New year
I took my son out for a late lunch on New Years Eve everything was great. My son enjoyed himself and loved the food. All of the courses were delicious and we had fun. The waitress was very good and recommended a delicious shake for my son that was served in a martini glass and in his words "this is to die for mom" lunch was a big hit.
Great girls' night out!
Went with several friends and had a wonderful, unique experience. Two of us had been before and highly recommended it; two of us were first-timers. We had a great time - the food was amazing and the server was very helpful and personable.

excellent food and the waitress or waiter are great in making sure you in enjoy your meal. We took our granddaughters and they had so much fun and can't wait to go again.
Great Christmas Dinner
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner on Christmas with friends and hope to go to Melting Pot for Cmas next year. Nice variety of dishes with very tasty seasoning and well presented. Just like a holiday dinner should be--lots of food and very satisfying. Highly recommend.
