Great service and great food. This establishment offers ever-changing menu items that will please every palate. Sandwiches are very generous and can served with fries or a house salad. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

Do you like cocktails made to perfection? This is the place then. Besides the bar though, the food is local when possible and prepared with healthy eating in mind. Nice variety with seasons.

Nice place to have a glass of wine and a meal. The shaved beef sandwich ( like a French Dip) with a crispy bread was good. Tabouli with Sharma Chicken was just the right thing to have. Our wait person was attentive.

Service was wonderful. Cocktails were wonderful. The food was divine. The hummus: YUM. Fish chowder was delish. I had the salmon, which was served medium and was wonderful. Loved every bite we had. We will be back.

I've been dining at Meadowlark for years, well before they were located in their current place off of 48. The menu hasn't changed too much over the years and I find the atmosphere is most suitable for lunch or brunch. In the winter, my favorite...More

yes, but they only do reservations for parties of 5 or more. If you have a smaller party and it's a weekend I recommend calling ahead and asking to be put on the "list"

I like to make a bit of effort at dinner time, but very casual at lunch. Certainly no dress code, and you will not be treated any differently based on what you are wearing.

Meadowlark is a chef-owned and operated neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Dayton, Ohio. Our menus feature high-quality ingredients cooked simply but imaginatively with lively, bright-tasting flavors. Our cooking is geared toward the American palate, which means fluffy, buttermilk mashed potatoes, homemade pickles and cornbread, great pancakes at brunch and yes, there will always be a burger on the menu. We also feature meat, fish and vegetarian dishes that employ the flavors and techniques from around the world that we have all come to love. This is contemporary everyday cooking, from scratch, made and served with local pride.
