The Melting Pot Fort MyersYou are seated at a table with a cook top burner in the middle of the table. You start with a cheesy appetizer but keep in mind everyone at the table has to agree on the choice since there is only one burner. The cheese comes with breads,vegetables and apples. After the cheese you can choose to have a salad or you can skip it. My group chose to skip it as we felt like it was too much food.

The main course - You must decide a cooking style again everyone has to pick the same style to cook your food on; for example our table chose cast iron grill to cook our entrees on. Your server will give you instructions on how long to cook the meats or fish, when to flip and how not to cross contaminate with raw meat and utensils.

My group had a variety of steak,chicken and shrimp. I ordered the vegetarian option which included meatless meatballs,tofu, asparagus and mushrooms. The Melting pot server also gives you probably 6-8 different types of dipping sauces for your meal.

After you have had your entrees your table again needs to agree upon what type of chocolate you NEED for dessert options included dark chocolate, original milk chocolate, smores, oreo and a vanilla swirl mix. We chose the smores chocolate which was brought with fruits,cakes,brownies, rice krispies, and waffles to dip into our chocolate fondue. We also closed the night out with specialty martinis which was the Yin-Yang martini that tastes like vanilla ice cream yum!

Overall the experience was one of a kind and a great girls night out!
