Hands down-one of the best meals anywhere! Would expect this in big cities-Indianapolis,Chicago,etc. Soooo nice to find in downtown Muncie-closer and much more convenient than driving to downtown Indy for a special place-great atmosphere too!!! Both casual and formal at the same time.

The service at Vera Mae's is always top notch. Great selection of food you cannot find anywhere else in Muncie. Unfortunately, the only "upscale" restaurant in Muncie. Having said that, it isn't overly stuffy, either. Very nice environment, inside or outside for bistro seating. They have a very elegant and private wine cellar dinner room great for groups or private... More

I like Vera Maes for the atmosphere, but the food is way overpriced and not outstanding. Still, it's a good place for a romantic dinner if you don't mind being overcharged.

I went here and had my first Vera Mae´s lunch. Lunch menu offers dishes in the range of 7-12 $ and sandwiches includes a choice of house salad, fruits, cottage cheese, soup of the day or french onion soup. We didn´t have a reservation but luckily we made it there before the major rush which starts around noon. A good,... More

I always try to make it to Vera Mae's when I'm in Muncie. I've been for lunch, dinner & got a full carry out meal to celebrate my parents' 55th anniversary. The dill encrusted cod, French onion soup and whiskey bread pudding are excellent. Service is very attentive & the owner is always present & makes guests feel welcome.

The location is a delight - in a small town, downtown, as it rebuilds and renews itself. The atmosphere is cozy, yet not smothering. The menu offers an abundance of unexpected treasures, all cooked to delight the palate and it's quality all the way. The staff is on the ball and t is obvious this restaurant is lovingly operated. The... More

When I first came to Vera Mae´s there was no doubt that this is the best restaurant in town. It has a unique concept and is NOT part of any chain. The waiter had great knowledge about the menu, the wine list is satisfying and allows a decent wine-pairing for the different dishes served. The owners are most of the... More

My husband and I have Christmas dinner every year with 3 other couples who all live in different towns. This year we decided we would have dinner at Vera Mae's. It was a wonderful experience. Our food was cooked perfectly, the waiter was very attentive, we all had a great time. The place was festive: Christmas decor, Christmas tree, live... More
