Experience the Ultimate Fondue Effect at The Melting Pot Restaurant in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is... Well, it has never been easy for me to finish this sentence since my experience here has always been so rich, colorful, intense and vibrant. Another adjective has made its way through lately, and that is "tasteful!" A visit to the Myrtle Beach area is delicious any time of the year. One thing is for sure: Myrtle Beach is taking food very seriously.

A defining aspect of the Grand Strand dining scene is its endless variety. From the mom-and-pop restaurants on Main Street North Myrtle Beach to the upscale places of Murrells Inlet or Pawleys Island where condiments like ketchup are a sacrilege. This area can satisfy any gourmet's fine palate.

I have been looking recently for a relaxing dining place to spend some quality family dinner time so I decided to try The Melting Pot in Myrtle Beach. I've learned about the place from a good friend who was absolutely convinced my experience there would be memorable. He was spot on. So here I am, excited to share with you that experience.

Normally, I tend not to be impressed with restaurants, especially while on vacation. This time though, as soon as I went in I became aware of The Melting Pot's charming and intimate atmosphere. The Melting Pot was the perfect place to reconnect with my family, with its dim lights, ambiance and love songs playing in the background. If you look in the dictionary for the definition of a polite and knowledgeable person you'll see the picture of our server. He took his time to explain the menu in detail and never rushed us through the fondue experience.

You can order 1-3 or more courses. We chose the 4-course experience: cheese fondue, salad, entree and chocolate fondue.

Cheese Fondue

Of the 4 choices of cheese, I chose the Melting Pot Cheddar Cheese fondue, which is prepared tableside. The cheddar cheese fondue was served with artisan breads, apples and seasonal vegetables for dipping. Mmmm, mmmm, delicious!


The Melting Pot - Salad

We had 3 salad options, but we stuck with what we knew and had the Caesar salad. The kids enjoyed the salad, even openly admitting how much they loved it, a thing I don't hear too often from them when it comes to salads.


The Melting Pot - Entree

At the Melting Pot, you also get an opportunity to cook your meat. The restaurant has everything from ravioli to filet mignon. We ordered the "Land and Sea" meal with premium filet mignon, herb-crusted chicken, and Pacific white shrimp. We cooked our Seasoned Court Bouillon entree at the table, and fresh seasoned vegetable broth, recommended by our server. It was served with seasonal vegetables: mushrooms, potatoes, and broccoli and the signature dipping sauces.

Chocolate Fondue

Our chocolate fondue came with fresh strawberries, blondies, bananas, pineapple, cheesecake, Rice Krispy treats, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies. We chose the "Pure Chocolate" fondue - milk chocolate melted to perfection.

I can honestly say that this was one of the best dining experiences I've had the last 10 years I've been visiting the Myrtle Beach area. At The Melting Pot, it all seems to be about making the guest feel welcome and leave the restaurant with an unforgettable dining experience. In the end, I have to give credit to my friend who recommended the restaurant: It truly was a pleasant and unforgettable experience.
