My wonderful wife surprised me on our 47th anniversary by treating me to a delightful dining experience at Vera Mae's. We were greeted at the door and escorted to our table. The table was professionally set and the linens were high grade. The drinks were well made and not watered down. We started with an appetizer crusted artichoke dip. We... More

A friend took me to Vera Mae's while I was in town for a dog show. The owner greeted us at the door and we were shown to our table. The atmosphere was very nice and service was prompt and attentive. Our food was delicious. This is an amazing gem.

Recently had lunch twice at Vera Mae's while visiting family in the area, once by myself and once with partner. The food was delicious -- I tried the asparagus melt and clam chowder on one visit, the cod sandwich on the second (partner chose the crab cake sandwich). The food was very tasty, and service was very friendly and efficient.... More

I have eaten at Ver Mae's once before - nearly 2 years ago. Tonight I went on an impromptu solo night out, and thought they'd be a great place for dinner. I was NOT disappointed. The service was prompt. My waitress made suggestions (appetizer, wine, dessert, etc), but wasn't pushy about it at all. She also did a great job... More

Vera Mae' is Muncie's only top class reastaurant. It is the place to celebrate birthdays, anniversies, or for special dates. The severs are well-trained and friendly and the food is very good.

Food was over priced and not good. Veggies way over cooked, burnt desserts and forgotten orders...... Still looking for a good Muncie restaurant!

This is the best restaurant in Muncie with a decent selection of high end entrees and a pretty varied wine list. I think the food is overrated and overpriced with a high snobbery factor. You're better off going to Indianapolis for a special dinner. Our waiter tried to charge my table for a $700 bottle of wine which we did... More

Love Vera Maes for a special dinner date as a couple or to spend a nice evening with friends. They have wonderful "staple" menu items such as the dill encrusted cod and raspberry Brie chicken that are always wonderful. The best meals have always been the special of the evening such as the crab encrusted filet--which my husband has said... More

My wife and I here for my birthday, it was our first time out with out our 2 year old in over a year. I was hopeful that the meal would live up to the hype from trip advisor, but sadly it did not. The meal started out well, my soup and rolls were fantastic. And the seared Ahi tuna... More
