Reviewed November 7, 2012

Saw some good reviews and since we had plans to visit relatives in the area, decided to give it a try for breakfast. We arrived around 9am on a Saturday and it was fairly busy. It is a sit where ever you want kind of place. Waitress came over and explained the menu – you can mix up, change, have whatever you want if you do not see it there. Everything is paper and plastic and you get everything yourself. Good selection of coffee and teas to choose from. Service was rather slow but the waitress was very friendly and pleasant. It took quite some time before our breakfasts finally arrived. One person ordered basic eggs, hash browns and toast – just the way they liked. Another ordered the big Special – also very good except she forgot the toast and we had to remind her. My veggie omelet was supposed to be mushrooms, cheese, green peppers and spinach. It came with broccoli with no explanation (good thing I like broccoli too). My hash browns were way too salty - I could not finish them. The portions were ample. Toast (wheat and raisin) were very good. Apple sauce and cider donuts were very yummy. Had to track down the waitress for our check after sitting for some time waiting. Atmosphere – it is a farm stand, so noisy, open and casual area. Good Views. While there, a few children were running all over with no apparent parental control-opening refrigerator doors, blocking the doors etc. No one seemed to care. Noticed locals meeting there – regulars are good signs of good food. They had a large assortment of country fare of jams, jellies, apples, sauces and more to purchase. Also, lots of good looking frozen meals, pies, and specialties were available. Overall it was pretty good and would probably give it another try maybe for lunch or different time of the year.

Meadowbrook Orchards has something for everyone, from health conscious vegetarians to meat and potato folks. You can stop in foR lunch and bring home a frozen dinner. They also have all sorts of baked goods, jams, local produce, and honey. My only suggestion I'd that they add locally raised meats and eggs to the menu. I love this place!

We have been passionate customers of Meadowbrook for many years and have raved about the food, service and atmosphere to all our friends and family. Sadly, something changed in the latter part of 2011 that has caused us to look for somewhere else to enjoy our Sunday breakfasts. Once seated, it takes up to 10-15 minutes to put in our order. Then it takes anywhere from 45 minutes to sometimes 1.5 hours to get our breakfast! And we're talking about eggs, toast, pancakes! When the food does arrive, it is often lukewarm and rubbery from having sat in the warmer too long. The cook staff is often seen talking, laughing and doing everything but cooking. The owner doesn't seem capable of organizing his kitchen or his staff and once we observed him yelling at his staff and throwing pans around! Perhaps this is an issue of growing too quickly and not having the expertise to manage the growth.

Beautiful place. Reasonable prices. Mostly sandwiches. Great for outdoor dinning in the Summer and early fall.

The Thursday night BBQ was very good. Great food, the flavor was very good. Not a sweet BBQ like many others. Choice of Pulled Pork, Ribs, Chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers. Four sides to choose from.

Going back Thursday!!
