Just wanted to share Mary and myselfs latests outings.....

Melting Pot
My wife has been wanting to try this place so on our anniversary I finally took her there. This was also my sons birthday so we combined the outting. We let Tyler choose the options....

This was a fun place to dine. We had the four course Big Night Out. We started with the cheese/spinach fondue. It was good, but I think I would try another cheese option next time. Some of the dipping options were not of the best quality. The nacho chips seemed like cheap stadium chips. I would think for their prices they would stick to better quality options...
Next we had salads. All three were different. Mary had Spinach and Mushroom, Tyler had Caesar and I had the California Salad. All three were great..
Then came the main course. We had the Pacific Islands Fondue Fusion. Bourguignonne Oil.
It had:
Lobster Tail, Sesame Crusted Teriyaki Sirloin,
Citrus Infused Pork Tenderloin, Sushi-Grade
Ahi Tuna, Garlic Chili Chicken Breast, Kiwi
Lime Shrimp, Spring Vegetable Dumplings,
and Fresh Vegtables
The portions were good and fresh. The pre-cooking dippings didn't stay on during cooking too good. The dumplings didn't cook very well also. Overall everything was very good.
We finished with the chocolate cookie fondue. My son wanted the S'more fondue but our server told him the chocolate and cookie was better....we'll have to go back to see. This fondue came with strawberry's, marshmellows, pound cake, rice crspy treats....All in all a good ending.
Overall this was a fun dinning experience. I would recommend this as an outing. It wasn't cheap so don't be surprised. $165 for three with drinks.

I heard this place mentioned here and had to try it. After the football game on Friday and on the way home we ordered a pie to go. I didn't know much about this prior so my wife just ordered a large pepperoni and mushroom. After seeing the menu we would try one of there specialties next time. The pizza was very large and thin crusted. I instantly thought of NYC pizza... The cheese was great, the sauce was the best i've had. Pepperoni were the smaller t ype (which I love...) and mushrooms were OK The only problem was that the crust was burned on one side. The price was a little more then expected (19.08) Overall I would have to agree with you Chowhounds, one of the best pizza in the area.
