At the suggestion of neighbors who are quite knowledgeable about restaurants in the area, we joined them for dinner at The Meadows on a weeknight, and we were not disappointed. Relatively small and not particularly imposing, we had probably driven by the restaurant for years and never taken any notice, but once through the door on a winter night, the dark pine paneling and cozy booths gave it the feeling of a friendly pub with a 1940s décor that, unlike Crackle Barrel, is original. The menu is not extensive, and as our neighbors remarked, would probably benefit from a nightly “special”. But there was an ample selection (6 to 8 items) of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and entrees. Our party had the salmon, pork chop, and beef tips; each dish was excellent. The portions were large, and the entrees were accompanied by a salad and warm bread; the salad is a standard green salad, with a variety of dressings. For dessert, each couple split a piece of coconut pie, which was delicious and totally worthwhile even if you are stuffed. The server was friendly, attentive, and helpful, and the owner came by during the meal. Given the quality, the prices are fair. The clientele was older, the music was Sinatra, and the seating conducive to conversation. So if you want a quiet and/or romantic night out, this is a great place. The food, at least the dishes we had, is equal or better than what we’ve experienced in the Cincinnati-Dayton region. Definitely will be back.
