“DELICIOUS AND FAST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We saw from the outside that this place always has a full house whether it is breakfast or lunch. We chose to eat at lunch and were very pleasantly surprised at the speed at which we were waited on and the time it took to get our meal. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes. Food was hot and the selection is unbelievable if you like Southern cooking. Several special are offered each day. Families are welcome and the prices are very affordable! We saw lots of people with fried chicken. I had country fried steak and would do it all over again. There was enough food that we were unable to eat everything. Rolls and cornbread are delicious and homemade. This restaurant has been owned by the same person over 20 years. The house was originally a landmark and was lived in by a large family. It was an interesting lunch and we would definitely return when we get back to this area.

“Meal House -- a lunchtime favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

Love the Meal House for lunch, I meet girlfriends there often... I usually get a vegetable plate... Vegetables cooked the way they should be. Sometimes I'll have a chicken salad sandwich, always good. Good menu of southern style cooking. Never heard anyone say they didn't like what they got. Service is friendly and good, very reasonable prices. If it's a nice day, eat on the porch -- nice breezes.

“Southern Charm...Down Home Cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This little gem reminds me of days gone by. The building is a converted charming old house and the atmosphere is outstanding. When the weather is nice, you can dine on the porch. I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and was never disappointed. The service is great and the wait staff is friendly. But the real star here is the food. Fried Chicken and Liver and Onions are two dishes I really love. Cooking either one just right is not easy. Midway meal house really shines with both dishes. The various sides are likewise great with no overcooked veggies. Portion sizes are more than generous.

No matter what time of the day you go, the food is outstanding and the prices are reasonable.

Breakfast for two about $13. Lunch for two about $15-$20 . Dinner for two $20-$25. It's food that you wish Mom could have made. (That is unless your Mom was a super cook...mine wasn't)

The charming decor hearkens back to the 40's or 50's....

I love this place and eat here often.

“Yummy southern food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We have frequented this restaurant for many years. The food is always outstanding. Large portions of southern goodness served by friendly attentive staff. It is a meat and two vegetables type place in an old converted house. They serve rolls and cornbread with real butter before the meal with lots of iced tea. Their fried chicken, meat loaf, fried chicken livers, hamburger steaks, and country fried steak are the standard meats served every day and the special of the day changes to other meats such as baked chicken, beef tips, and on Friday an Saturday fried catfish(some of the best we have ever had.) the vegetables change daily too. There ate many to choose from. They also serve good salads, burgers, and sandwiches. We love their breakfast also. Our favorites are omelets, pancakes, and southern biscuits. Go there on a pretty day and sit in the porch.

“REAL southern home cooking for all three meals!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Although it is an old home made into a restaurant it actually is roomy inside. Service is very quick and very friendly and hot fresh made rolls and corn bread are brought to your table along with your beverage order. The menu is full of good southern entree's from fried chicken to a delicious meatloaf. So many good choices at reasonable prices. Don't forget the homemade peach or blackberry cobbler... Been back many times
