I love to cook, but as life has it there are many nights when our schedules do not align or we are all just too tired to want to cook a meal. So I am always looking for more options for restaurants in the area. As a mom, I'm always looking for a family friendly atmosphere. We recently had the chance to check out The Melting Pot at Lake Norman. Our little guy had been baptized earlier that day and we were ready to celebrate.
I have been to The Melting Pot numerous times, but this was both of my guys first time! The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant and you get the chance to cook each course at the table yourselves. We previously went over the rules about how not to touch the pot or the burner and how to blow on the fondue so you don't burn your mouth. After the rules talk we had to look over the menu and choose our cheese, meat, cooking style and our chocolate. Once the cheese hit the table our son dove right in, he loved the hands on experience!
The other thing that I loved about The Melting Pot was how they bring out a healthy option with each course. First with the cheese we were offered apples and grapes, with the meat we were offered cauliflower, potatoes and broccoli, then with the chocolate we received strawberries and bananas. My son ate veggies with his dinner, SUCCESS!!
As we ate dinner my son looked up and said, "I love this place, I wish we could eat here all the time", that's when I knew we had a new choice to add to the list of options. This was before the dessert time! For dessert we ordered off the menu, by recommendation of our server and we got The Snickers! Yum! My mouth is watering, just thinking about it again!
Not only did we have incredible food and a fun time as a family cooking it, we also received amazing service. Zack was our waiter and he was great with our son, very friendly with us and knew the menu like the back of his hand! So if you think the menu might overwhelm you, rest assured the staff is knowledgeable and will be more than happy to help you make your decisions.
When most people think of The Melting Pot they think of a fancy night out with friends, prom date or even a couples date night. After our experience we want to add fun family friendly place to that list!
