This place has great character but that is about it. The food was just ehhh. It is WAY OVERPRICED for Muncie Indiana. I had the Chicken breast with Brie and Raspberry reduction. The chicken was not tender as it should have been and was not impressive at all for $19. The mashed potatoes were Fantastic but the asparagus was awful... More

I was here last night for a conference but I'm anxious to take hubby there. Very elegant table settings and the service was great. There were a variety of hors d' oeuvres and dining options throughout our table but all were very well presented and the filet was the best i've had in a very long time. A tucked away... More

A relatively new Muncie icon. Has survived for many years and through several fits and starts at downtown revitalization. I have eaten here, always to great delight, on a handful of occasions over the years. Located in a historic type building with very high copper type ceilings (maybe original) it is filled with antique atmosphere and a small but ornate... More

Had the pleasure of visiting this wonderful restaurant a few weeks back and had to write a review. What a hidden gem! The eclectic menu offers some real treats that should not be missed. I started my meal with crawfish nachos....something I hadn't even considered before. I was not disappointed! The flavors were amazing and, when the plate was emptied,... More

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!
