The Melting Pot gets 5 Stars!!

While in Birmingham visiting with Marshall & Sarah a few weeks ago, we had dinner at the new Melting Pot Restaurant in Lee Branch. There is one here in Nashville as well which I have heard great things about so I was very curious to try it and BOY did we love it.
They give you SO many options to try, but we got some sort of sampler kit type thing and if you have never been to a Fondue restaurant- this is how it works:
Each person has their own set of metal sticks which are color coded! I was PINK Erik was Blue, Marshall was Brown and Sarah was Green :) There is a burner on the table and the waiter makes the fondue of your choice right there.

First course you choose a cheese combo fondue. We chose a cheddar swiss combo and you dip bread pieces or raw veggies into the cheese. Erik LOVES cheese so he was pretty excited about this. I was just glad he didnt lick the bowl when we were done!

Next you have a salad. Then the meat platter of your choice. We got kind of a combo platter with chicken, steak, shrimp, lobster, Tuna etc... and you get to choose your own cooking broth.. I forget what we chose but the waiter makes it at the table and you use your skewers to cook each of your raw meat pieces and eat them as you go.

The last part is the best part! DESSERT. Now this is a MUST. If you arent really looking to invest in your dinner then you should eat elsewhere and come here for dessert only.
We chose a smores dessert! The pot came out and the guy melted chocolate in it, then had some marshmellow in top that he lit on fire and toasted , then he sprinkled crumbled Graham crackers in it. Each couple had a plate if things to dip in this delicious concoction. The plate had on it pineapple, strawberries,bananas, cheesecake, brownies, marshmallows coated in oreos,& marshmellows coated in graham cracker. DELISH...

Not only was the food good, but the atmosphere, service and whole experience was pretty ideal. I highly recommend this place! I mean seriously... its really neat so GO ! ha
