What an experience. The Melting Pot is a 3-4...

What an experience. The Melting Pot is a 3-4 hour dining experience. You start with appetizers (bread and apples, etc, w/ fondue cheese mixed with wine), then you get a whole bunch of meat to cook during dinner (beef, shrimp, lobster, chicken, fish, etc — so much variety). After the main course (which takes forever to eat), is desert! So good. Chocolate fondue with strawberries, and bananas, and watever (i forgot the rest). But we basically stayed there for a loooooong time. It’s a good experience, especially if you know your wines.

Five stars from moi!

Pros
You get your food quick. They fill as much of the plate as they can to make sure you get what you paid for.
Cons
There's not a lot if people in the beginning of the day, so if you go between opening and 4-5 O'Clock it will be VERY empty and quiet. The waiters assume ages by the height of the person, my older brother who is 14 but shorter than an average size was giv

A dining patron from Schaumburg, IL tried Sweet Tomatoes, liked it, and rated it . They liked the food, liked the service, and liked the ambiance.

Pros
They were always on top of what they needed to do. When you asked them for something they wouldn't put it to the side to do later, they would start it right then.
Cons
There weren't as many food options as I had wanted and it was usually the same foods throughout the day.

Tips
  • Prime-time reservations often require several weeks' notice.
  • Cooking on forks takes time--something to keep in mind if you've got after-dinner plans. It's a great place for people just getting to know each other or who truly enjoy each other's company.
