We had delicious hot entrees. The menu has a good variety. I love their shrimp and grits as well as other entrees.service is pleasant snd attentivr. The room towards the back with tall windows is the most quiet. The other room tends to be noisy during peak times. Consistent delicious food in pleasant atmosphere.

Had a very good dinner at Meadowlark recently. Sat in the expansion overlooking the back of the restaurant, it was a bit warm, but not uncomfortable. Service was excellent. I had the sirloin, my wife had the fish. Both were very good, but we both agreed that the steak was a bit better. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will... More

We arrived without reservations and the wait was 30 min, but they accommodated us rather quickly. The coffee and freshly made bloody mary base were both excellent. The choices for brunch were varied, and interesting. We chose a small order of stuffed French toast with apples and walnuts. The apples were perfectly cooked Honeycrisp and the dish was not overly...

Looking for somewhere quaint and unique for a 20th wedding anniversary dinner. Called to see if they took reservation (only for large groups). Inquired as to why I was coming and when they heard they immediately made a reservation for us! Upon arrival found they had also made us a special menu with our name and celebration on it. I...

This is a very nice restaurant in the Dayton area. I was there with coworkers. We all loved the service, the restaurant itself is very nice, even though the area the restaurant is in is not that nice. The food was just good, not great, I ordered a spice rubbed steak, the steak was cooked very well but I think... More

This is the best place we ate while in Dayton. Made a reservation to surprise my husband for his birthday. Had a cake delivered to the restaurant. The waitress brought out the cake at the perfect time. The meals were fantastic. Drinks were great. A lot of choices for the kids. 3 appetizers, 7 meals, 7 drinks, 7 desserts =... More

We had a party of 7 for dinner at Meadowlark and went back for Sunday Brunch. Treat yourself to an appetizer of spiralized zucchini which is then deep fried. This dish has a very light touch but with loads of flavor. The beets with goat cheese and horseradish is also very tasty. The goat cheese with fig jam is an... More

We decided that a good dinner at Meadowlark would end a fine day. Knowing the queues at the restaurant, we called ahead to get seating and got our time. Upon arriving, the hostess claimed we never called and would put us on the wait list for 15 to 20 minutes. As we watched group after group come in and get... More

My husband and I were in Dayton for our anniversary and decided to try Meadowlark for our evening meal based on reviews we had read. Beth, our waitress, was friendly, attentive and very personable. The appetizer of roasted beets with horseradish sauce, goat cheese and pecans was amazing as were the traditional Bloody Mary and the Meadow Bloody Mary. My... More
