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,...

I had never been to Vera Maes when a friend suggested we go there for lunch. The decor is rustic and the club sandwich I had was delicious. They have a banquet room for larger groups. The restaurant is in downtown Muncie and if you can navigate the construction going on there it is a great place to eat and... More

Vera Mae's is a most enduring part of and central to Muncie's downtown now. The exterior is restrained but relatively upscale from its surroundings. Outside seating along Walnut Street is available during good weather. Inside, an eclectic interior awaits with a rich variety of paintings, art objects, furniture of various sorts and styles, in two adjoining dining rooms, one of... More

This place was pretty fancy so a lot of athletes at Muncie 70.3 didn't come here. It was so good though. Great food and a really cool environment. Everyone loved their food.

I have been to this restaurant several times, and it is consistently delicious with excellent service. The server has no problem splitting the check in all different ways as needed or making changes to a meal for dietary reasons. My only wish is that they would vary the menu a little more often - but then maybe my favorites would... More
