I liked that I could call ahead 30 minutes to put my name on the seating list, as they only take reservations for large parties. We were seated soon after arriving at 11:55am on a Sunday. CJ gave us excellent service--didn't hurry us, yet was...More

Good food but not a place to have a conversation. Service was okay, and atmosphere fun, but it is just very very noisy. They need to get some acoustic help so folks can talk at the table

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.
