Excellent place for couples or families serving down-home meals at reasonable prices. The meals are plentiful and presented in a pleading way. Service is polite, helpful, and out to make your meal a pleasant experience.

Went to have lunch. There are regular items and daily specials. Ordered the fish taco daily special. Excellent fish tacos. Plenty of flavor, not too spicy. Decor is simple and modern. Good service. Would return.

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"

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.
