    There's another posting on your same question in Chains.

      My opinion is simple: avoid

      There are better experiences to be had for the same number of dining dollars.

        Agree. I can't understand the attraction of dipping a handful of cut up veggies and sliced meats into melted cheese or hot oil and getting charged an arm and a leg for it. I was completely disappointed the one time I went. People seem to flock there though.

        Definitely not worth the money...not even dunking strawberries in melted chocolate.

        My friends raved and raved about MP, I couldn't wait to try it out. I would never choose this place on my own, for me, the ONLY time to go to the Melting Pot is for Happy Hour with a group of friends. The food is so whatever, over HH they have half price beer and wine and then the half price cheese and chocolate pots will do. I would never pay full price!
