Chef Wiley has nailed it! The menu is fantastic and the restaurant is very open and modern looking. I will dine here often!

Fabulous food. I love that they change the menu to reflect what is available locally. The only reason I didn't give all "5s" is because we went on a Friday night to this very popular restaurant. We waited for a table for awhile and the service was a little slow only because the wait staff had so many people to... More

Both of us had the pork tenderloin with jezebel sauce. It came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable mix. While the food was very good, we felt (as you typically find in an eclectic type restaurant) that our portions were lacking. Most dinner entrees were in the $20-25 range. The service was good and the wait staff was nice. Honestly,... More

I think previous reviewer, TR26, summed it up with,“Pleasant and a good taste." Not exceptional, but nice enough for a pleasant brunch on weekends. About the parking: the restaurant is not immediately visible in the shopping strip. Look past the initial row of stores, towards the back, and then squirrel your way into parking. Initially, when we called for Sunday... More

This was a surprise. I was dining with friends in Dayton and they wanted to go to one of their favorite places. We drove out a ways and into back of a strip shopping center. My expectations were dropping. But everything from then on was all positive. This is a great restaurant with a local ambiance and exceptional food. Our... More

It had been a while since I'd enjoyed Meadowlark--and I had not visited in the few years since they moved to this location. So on an evening when I was too weary to cook, my wife and I renewed our acquaintance. The new location is in the backmost part of a little strip mall, and whoever designed that strip mall... More

You can never go wrong here for a quick lunch. Everything on the menu is fresh and tastes that way. Go for the grilled turkey sandwich!

If you're looking for wonderful, innovative cuisine (for Dayton) look no further. The pâté appetizer is a must!

Not your standard menu which we liked. The sandwiches all had unusual and tasty items. Service was excellent. Everyone went home happy. Even the ketchup was a one-off recipe which was nice. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the experience.

As usual, a great stop in a strip mall. Visiting Dayton, we searched and found Meadowlark. Despite the Sunday Noon crowd, the pleasant staff found a table and we viewed the creative menu. Rosti potatoes, veggie specials, Lewes bacon, something for the four of us. Our charming server told us both the catchup and siracha are made on premise. Vibrant... More
