Locally owned locally grown.

I've been here twice in the last month both times were very good. I enjoyed lunch a shaved beef sandwich delicious! The veggie pasta for dinner was so good!!! They use local ingredients and the food is all fresh. Enjoy!

Meadowlark has easily become my favorite Dayton restaurant. Entrees, sandwiches, salads and desserts are exceptional. My favorites: shaved beef sandwich, meadow burger, chopped salad, ricotta tacos.

My family visited the Meadowlark for Father's Day brunch 2015. My FIL and I had the Spanish Chorizo and Asparagus scramble. My MIL had the shrimp & grits and my wife had the fried green tomato sandwich. Every dish was delicious and that's an understatement. The grits were creamy, the scramble & hash browns were perfectly seasoned and the sandwich... More

Meadowlark has an easy, laid back ambience. Is chef owned and with an excellent menu selection and prepared with fresh and organic ingredients. Way better than most restaurant offerings in the area. Would definitely recommend if visiting the Dayton and surrounding areas.

Meadowlark is a chef owned business in the suburbs of Dayton. It is slightly hard to find. In a small strip of stores, with the name prominently listed among the stores, it doesnt appear to be there. Then suddenly you see it in an opening between stores in the back, in a stand alone building. For some reason we have... More

Our family was in a big group, maybe that's why we had slow service. But, I loved this place. It was the first time our family had been out to eat together without our Grandpa, who was in the hospital. This restaurant was comforting and calming for a sad group. But it's also really cute, and easily a good place... More

Meadowlark is an excellent place to eat, one of the best places in town for a great dinner. I recommend the frites.

I feel very comfortable in this restaurant and it is an 'old favorite'. Family, friends or just a romantic couples date night - you can't go wrong. Fresh, seasonal dishes served with style.

I have only been familiar with Meadowlark for about 6 months but being a foodie, I was embarrassed that I have never tried it until now. I had heard several recommendations and was still blown away on my first visit. If you appreciate the source, quality and care in preparations for your food, then you will appreciate everything Meadowlark has... More

Unforunately, Meadowlark got too big for its britches. Originally, this place was a shining star nestled in a terrible strip mall location. But that didnt matter much because it was awesome - the food and the atmosphere. Alas, they moved from the strip mall to a more trendy suburban spot and things went downhill. Honestly, I have never been to... More
