“Sunday Crowd Slups Giant Bloody Mary's”

Homestead Bar & Grill
Ranked #43 of 250 Restaurants in Meridian
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 23, 2016

This is a local bar and grill. Our party of 5 arrived around noon on Sunday and luckily scored a table in about 5 minutes. The place was packed with people enjoying Sunday football on multiple screens and getting an early morning buzz.

To be honest, what made us seek this place out was a picture of their loaded Bloody Mary that I saw on Facebook. So 3 of us ordered the monstrosity for our lunch. It starts with a double Bloody Mary in a large glass and is adorned with a green olive-pearl onion-greenbean-peppercini spear, celery, bacon, a full soft pretzle, a hamburger slider, and a chicken drumette, with a shot of beer on the side. The accrouments were on long wooden spikes to keep them above rim so they did not get soggy. This is their basic loaded Mary, with more items available to add at extra cost (we noticed our neighbors added mozarella sticks to their's.) $15

So one other person in our party order chicken nachos, and the fifth person is a kid who had a hot dog and fries. The nachos were significantly sized and came with fresh sliced jalapenos.

I wish I could properly review the food, but we didn't order any extra. The menu appeared to be varied and reasonable.

Being on a Sunday football morning, besides being crowded, the restaurant was loud. And the service from the bar and kitchen was slow. It took 30 minutes to get our Bloody Mary's and another 10 minutes before the nachos and hot dog arrived. The waiter recognized the problem and volunteerily reduced our bill by 10%.

Most of the issues were not a big deal, especially by the time we drained our Bloody Mary's. We do plan on trying it again when they are less crowded.

I live down the road and love to visit here for a good beer and a good bite of food. Plenty of TV'S for watching sports, some 40 taps of solid beer, and great food! The staff is always extremely friendly and energetic.

Great food but it is so loud we couldn't talk to each other. Beers are expensive - a bottle of Blue Moon was $6. Unfortunately even though the food was very good we won't go back.

Went in and sat ourselves. Waited about 10 minutes before acknowledged. Then waited 5 more minutes before server came back with menus. We ordered a burger with onion rings and a Cali club (with avocado on the side) and fries. The people next to us came in about 5 minutes after we had ordered. They got their menus and drinks quickly. Within about about 10 minutes after they ordered, they got wing ordered (steaming and smelled delicious). We waited... Then, they had eaten their wings and received their entrees. We still waited... We asked and server said should be out shortly. Five minutes later, we get our order but no avocado, fries and onion rings were almost cold. We had to flag server down. He didn't say sorry or anything, said he'd get us some more. We ate sandwich(soggy in middle)/ ok burger before he returned with hot fries/rings. Onion rings were good but fries (battered) were really greasy and left awful aftertaste (maybe fried in oil with fish). There was no sorry for wait or sorry about fries given. We won't be going back. You can get $25 lunch elsewhere that is better and you walk away satisfied. Ridiculous!!!
