I ate the cheese and chocolate courses. For the Wisconsin cheese, the server switched out regular beer for GF beer. I shared a pot with my family that was using regular bread (because it isn’t that important for me). However, the server gave me my own plate with GF bread for dipping. For the chocolate, the server gave me a separate plate with GF brownies, GF marshmallows, GF pound cake, and berries. It was fantastic!

Food was good but I got glutened. Was very disappointed that it was so expensive and I got sick, especially since I placed my order with the manager. Would have thought that would have decreased my chance of any issues.

I’m allergic to gluten and was so excited to try The Melting Pot for the first time. I’d heard such good things and had seen great reviews. Unfortunately, that wasn’t our experience. Our waiter was very nice but completely confused. He swore potatoes had gluten but the Oreo covered marshmallows didn’t. He finally had to go get another waiter and they weren’t any more confident. Thankfully, coming in contact with cross contamination isn’t the end of the world for me but I have been sick for two days on my honeymoon and that’s pretty sucky. I wouldn’t suggest going, personally. I’ll feel better in a few days but for someone who experiences much worse symptoms / side effects, it’s just not worth it.

Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and said it was the most gluten free knowledgeable restaurant he had ever worked for. Our food was excellent. They had gluten free bread, brownies and sponge cake for dipping.

Amazing waiter Jacob T. Confident in his ability to explain and handle my husbands gluten allergy. Learned they are gluten certified. Majority of the menu gluten free or can be made such. Great experience all around.
