Business lunch

Rustic atmosphere and wonderful sandwiches with chips or salads. The potato salad is the best available in the area. The service is perfect, we are waited upon but the waitstaff is not in the way.

The Meeting Place has sandwiches and salads that are very delicious. I especially love the veggie Panini. I always get the apricot tea. It has such a refreshing taste. The wait staff is very friendly and Anne Martin, owner of Meeting Place, makes you feel very welcome.

Traveling along route 17 and we wanted something different and local. Stumbled upon this gem right along water front. Food was great! Service, very 'southernly' and friendly!! Will make it a point to stop by again and will go out of our way to make it happen!!

The decor is outdated, but I love it! Its very charming and slightly odd coming from a big city (especially the curtains over the bathroom stalls). The reason i'm giving a 3 star and not a 4 is because our first visit was mediocre. The food was bland and service wasn't as attentive. But the second time I really enjoyed... More

Love this place. Only thing I don't like is that they only open for lunch. Excellent sandwiches and delicious iced tea. Atmosphere is lively for the lunch crowd.

Service can be spotty, with slow response. But the food, apricot tea and muffins help make up for it! My wife loves the Eggs Benedict, and I enjoy their omelets and different quiches.

It was ok, service was slow. The tomato soup was good and the salad was good, but I would not order the Tuscany Pannini again. It was tough ham and very salty. The potato salad was nothing to write home about either. Overall, it was average, but I won't go there again.

Fabulous food. I had the Pilgrams Soup - a cream of white and sweet potatoes with cranberries and pears. So good! I also had the curry chicken salad - very good too. Everyone raved about their meal. Many selctions at reasonable prices.
