If you are looking for one of the best restaurants in Durham to have a fun night on the town, look no further than the fondue dining experience of The Melting Pot. Start your evening off with any of our mouth-watering cheese fondues prepared table side to the delight of your fellow dining companions. Our restaurant has something to fit everyone’s taste preferences, including Seafood, steak and vegetarian entrees as well as an assortment of chocolate fondue. Many guests say we offer the best chocolate dessert in the area. The Melting Pot is also proud to offer a gluten free menu created in partnership with the Gluten Intolerance Group.

 The fondue dining experience makes the Melting Pot one of the best restaurants in Durham. Come see why we are considered one of Durham's most romantic restaurants. Our private curtained booths offer the finest intimate dining in all of Chapel Hill, Durham and the entire Triangle. The Durham Melting Pot is more than just a romantic restaurant. We have private dining rooms that hold 22-58 people for Christmas parties, holiday parties and Ladies' Night events. We are considered a perfect restaurant for birthday parties, anniversary celebrations and rehearsal dinners.

The Melting Pot of Durham is located near the Southpoint Mall and is one of the most fun and interactive restaurants in the Southern Durham and Southpoint area. We are located in the Best Buy shopping center at Fayetteville Road and Interstate 40, right near the Hilton Garden Inn hotel and directly in front of Old Navy and Babies R Us. We have been serving fondue to the residents of Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, Raleigh and the Triangle for over 7 years. The Durham Melting Pot serves guests who join us from Carrboro, Hillsborough, Mebane, Apex, Holly Springs and Burlington. 

Each Melting Pot restaurant is individually owned and operated. My wife and I live locally and work in the restaurant on a daily basis. Please contact me on my personal cell phone, 919-810-8410, or email me directly at if you have any questions or feedback.
