April 28th was my oldest granddaughter’s 19th birthday. She wanted to try a new restaurant, The Melting Pot, so that’s where we went. It was a nice restaurant. We liked the food, but the entree wasn’t as good as I was expecting. The website says to expect the meal to last 3 hours. It took us 4, I suppose because there was so many of us, my son Jeremy and dil Susie, grandkids Arianna and Jordan, Luigi who is a friend of Arianna, my son Anthony, and me.
You get to choose the type of cheese and chocolate you want for two of the fondues.
The cheese fondue comes with artisan breads, seasonal fruits and veggies.
The chocolate fondue comes with fresh strawberries, blondies, bananas, pineapple, marshmallow treats, pound cake and brownies.
For the entree I got Tampa Big Night Out which included cold water lobster, teriyaki-marinated sirloin, Memphis-style dry rub pork, sriracha lime shrimp, Sun-dried tomato chicken, & wild mushroom sacchetti.
I liked that we got to cook our own meat in a pot. All the food tasted good, especially the chocolate fondue. Of course I couldn’t eat it all so I ended up bringing some of the meat home.
We had a fun time, I love spending time with my family.
This is the chandelier above our table.
I thought it was a bit strange, but I liked it.
If you’ve been to The Melting Pot before, what did you think?
