Our granddaughter chose this restaurant to dine at to celebrate her 20th birthday. The decor is very eclectic. The Salmon en Papillotte was flavorful and perfectly, poached. In the same way, the New York Strip was grilled to order. For dessert my granddaughter and I split the bread pudding, yummy!

Vera Mae's is a must for a foodie stopping, visiting or driving through Muncie! This quirky restaurant has some of the best food in town, along with wonderful ambiance and service. Be sure to try the french onion soup - serviced with scissors because it's just THAT good! Great cocktail selection and live jazz a few nights a week! If... More

Yummy food. Top notch service. When we get back to the area, we will stop in again. Everything was well done. Old downtown area.

I've been to Vera Mae's twice now and we'll probably go back. It offers a nice atmosphere and nice change of pace compared to the other restaurants in town. We have only been here for dinner so I cannot comment on the lunch. The service is good and the timing is great....we had a very nice family night. I will... More

I am so sorry for our shortcomings. The servers are instructed to come to me immediately if there is a situation. Was the server aware? We never want a customer to leave without being very satisfied. Please accept my sincere apology. Best regard, Kent More

Been here several times and had a great meal each time. Located downtown Muncie it is probably one of the nicer if not nicest places to eat in Muncie if you want to feel like you are at a high end restaurant. Menu is great and offers multiple things to eat at a variety of price ranges from $12-15 meals... More

The Crab Cake sandwich is a must! Very friendly, both the hostess and the waitress. Definitely will be going back.

I never had a quiche at Vera Mae's that wasn't an A+. My favorite lunch. Their quiches always entice me to suggest Vera Mae's for lunch.

Went for lunch with friends. We had 1 1/2 hours before a meeting. Service was pleasant but SLOW. We had to ask for our checks when the entree was served! I had the daily soup, squash, which was delicious. My salad was great. Would go again if I had plenty of time.

This was supposed to be a fine dining establishment, the only thing that suggested it was fine dining were the prices. If I'm going to pay an exorbitant amount of money for food, I expect that food to be worth the amount of money I spend. IT WAS NOT! Our "fancy" dinner started out with 1 measly little roll each,...
