The Melting Pot – Family Friendly Restaurant

Thinking of restaurants to dine at for a birthday or celebration is always hard for my family.  The top 3 questions we always, ALWAYS have to think about is:

1.  Is it too late to make reservations for a party of 10?

2.  How far is it?

3.  MOST IMPORTANTLY, is it good for the kids?

With that, we always have to pick a restaurant that accommodates my large family, somewhere in Pasadena, and that is family AND kid-friendly!  There are plenty of restaurants out there, but when we dine out for “special” occasions, one restaurant that works – The Melting Pot Fondue Restaurant!

The Melting Pot

The Melting Pot is great experience for my family!  Everyone gets their own color-coded utensils…including Jackson!  From dipping the first piece of bread in the cheese to dipping the last piece in dark chocolate, our 3 hour lasting dinner was super fun!  The meal was sort of long for the kids but Jackson got so excited when he got to dip the broccoli and ravioli all by himself!  Obviously dessert was his favorite part.  His eyes lit up as the Chocolate S’mores was getting flambeed, then he digged right into the fruits and chocolate!  We’re definitely a sweet-tooth type of family. =)

  1. That looks SO yummy! Looks like y’all had a great time. 🙂

    • Yes we had an amazing time! Do you have a fondue restaurant where you live? This is a must try!

      • I googled the closest one after reading your post 🙂 There are 2 in Dallas (about 2 hours away).
        But I think the one we will go to next will be in San Antonio. We are having a family vacation in the next few weeks. I think my mother-in-law, 11 year old brother-in-law, baby and husband will LOVE it!
        I will have to let you know how it goes! 🙂

      • Yes you guys must try it and let me know! Any fondue restaurant is a must try experience! Be sure to go earlier because it is going to be a long and fun dinner experience! Please let me know how it goes and what you think of it!

  2. I absolutely LOVE the Melting Pot! We do fondue for dinner and dessert a lot. It’s awesome to have a place that will do it and I don’t have to clean up the mess 🙂
