Having worked in the restaurant business myself for almost two decades I have to say I was very impressed with The Meating House. I do recommend reservations or this restaurant, but they do take walk-ins also. Upon arriving, we were greeting in a very warm, friendly manner and seated promptly. The Hostess took our drink order promptly. I was a... More

The Meeting House is a nice establishment...can get very crowded on weekends, and they have great early bird specials! When it is crowded expect to wait a very very very long time for your meals if you are dining with more than 4 people! It can be very pricey for the area, there are better options but you may have...

Went with another couple for dinner, after reading some of the bad reviews we were skeptical. It was far worse than we thought. Food was horrible service was even worse not sure how this place can stay in business. I had better meals in a cafeteria.

I've tried to contact this person directly for better details on their experience in an effort to improve our operation.He responded by not providing any further details or information and left me a very sarcastic expletive notation I question whether reviewers like this are out to help the public or hurt restaurant owners??? Look at some of the other reviews... More

I was in the area and needed a light meal before heading home. So we tried this place. The outside decor was inviting with white lights, an old bicycle, barrels, a toy fire engine from days gone by. Oh yes, I remember these items! We stepped inside and were escorted to a booth and quick, friendly service. Nice warm rolls... More

I've read some bad reviews but our experience was great. This restaurant was recommened and after a very long day of travel-were we glad. Cozy, warm, with locals that made it cozier. The place had an almost full house. Food was great and service,although a little slow, was personable and very good otherwise. The rolls are awesome. Family owned, family... More
