Features Of The Melting Pot
The restaurant is a great location that makes it easier for you to have an interactive dining experience. The experience you get here is definitely not unique to the city if you go to fondue restaurants at home, but not everyone goes to a fondue location. Now, here are some of the best features you can enjoy at The Melting Pot.
With a lot of restaurants you are limited on what you can order. While that is true here, it is different in the fact that you are able to make everything with the fondue aspect. This makes it easier for you to enjoy the meal and know it is something that you normally would not have eaten.
Fresh ingredients are another aspect that you enjoy here. You may not have thought about this before, but with fondue almost everything you eat has to be fresh and at pristine freshness. If they are not at that level, then your entire adventure for a meal will be off.
What Type Of Dining Experience Is Offered
With most of the restaurants in Gatlinburg they are a fine dining experience and a family trip. However, at The Melting Pot that definitely holds true, but it also adds the aspect of having fun while dining as well. You may think that it is overrated to make your own fondue, which if you are not into fondue it is. For us, though, the fun aspect comes from watching the children and everyone in our party making their own fondue.
Pros And Cons
- Easy to reach from most parts of Gatlinburg.
- Cost is decent compared to what you get food wise.
- Dining experience is unique if you have never been to a fondue restaurant before.
- Decent sized selection of food available.
- Is not an overly heavy meal making it easier to walk the city after eating.
- It is a chain style restaurant, but one that not everyone has been to.
- The experience is not comletely friendly for people on a diet with the wide selection of foods.

What We Liked At The Melting Pot
The main thing that we liked is obviously the fondue. So it is very easy to see that we like the main dish that is being served here because that is what they are well known for and they have perfected it to an art form that you cannot resist looking at. So we will have to go along and say that we really love the fondue that is being served here.
If you are like my husband, though, you will really enjoy the Steak Lovers Entree Fondue. This is a great option and is on the A La Carte menu as well. The price is a little steep for a lot of people at 30 bucks, but it includes Premium Filet Mignon, Teriayaki marinated steak, and garlic pepper steak. So it is definitely a steak lovers dream.
What We Did Not Care For
The thing that we actually do not like is the hours. We have a 3 year old and try to diet right, which means not eating after 6 PM for the diet. So we really do not like being out late into the evening for meals because then we cannot get the 3 year old into the pool at the hotel to cool off some and burn off the excess energy that kids get from who knows where! So we wish the hours during the week were a little bit earlier in the afternoon, but that is our only complaint.
Our Final Thoughts On Melting Pot Gatlinburg
Well, The Melting Pot in Gatlinburg is like most of the other ones that you can find. The food is good, the atmosphere is great, but most of all is the chance to share the food. Either way we like The Melting Pot, but we prefer the local restaurants that are not part of the chain that has several restaurants just a quick jaunt away from our house.
