The Melting Pot of Columbia

The Melting Pot Restaurant in Columbia MD is where fun is cooked up fondue style!

The Melting Pot is conveniently located at Village of Wilde Lake, about a half mile away from The Mall in Columbia. We are located on Twin Rivers Road which intersects with Governor Warfield Parkway. We're proud to be Howard County's premiere fondue restaurant. Fondue is a fun and interactive dining experience and for almost a decade, The Melting Pot has defined the niche across the American dining scene.


Fondue at The Melting Pot can be enjoyed in a number of ways. Choose what is right for your occasion. Combine delicious cheese fondues prepared table side, fresh salads, scrumptious entrée, including your choice of seafood, steak, poultry, pasta and fresh local vegetables, and finish with a decadent chocolate fondue. We proudly offer gluten-free dining options for all four courses and can accommodate most food allergies as well.


The Melting Pot’s relaxed, leisurely dining experience sets it apart from other restaurants, giving you the gift of time to enjoy each other’s company. That’s not to say you can’t just pop in for a quick cheese or chocolate fondue if you’re in a hurry. But don’t take our word for it – come try the award-winning Melting Pot experience for yourself!
