A favorite spot for a nice lunchMeriwether's is a great place to meet for a business lunch - or when meeting up with a friend. The ambiance is quite nice, and it's set up in a way you are able to carry on a conversation knowing others are not be bothered by, or listening to your conversation. The wait staff are typically attentive, but not intrusive.
Though I've never been there for a romantic dinner, I can see where it would be a good place for one.
The food is very good, and there is a nice selection for all tastes. I always look forward to their tea-cup bread they serve with every meal too!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as always!The food and service at Meriwether's remain top-notch. Wishing we had an equivalent in Grand Rapids (Charlie's Crab not at the same level). This most recent visit with a dinner with clients. The waitress suggested a wine (given the couple we were considering) and the level of attentiveness was right on -- glasses never empty, but no noticed hovering either. And everyone loved their entrees.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food Always!I had not been to Meriwether's since I moved to Michigan 22 years ago and I am happy to see the quality of the food and service is still the same-Wonderul! We will make sure our next visit is not as far apart!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic Muer RestaurantI came in for a business meeting and was quite impressed with the staff and the food. Certainly a place that I'll come back to for lunch.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA great placeOur experience was super with good food, service and atmosphere and was very quiet which is rare at a fine restaurant these days. The spinach salad is the best, as are the sweet potatoes. Much is good on the menu which we have tried over the past 20 years. I will add, however, that the broiled salmon this time was a little dry.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA Lovely BrunchTook my child bride here for brunch on Mother's Day. The server was excellent and the food superb. My lovely wife was very pleased and so was I.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely returnMeriwether's was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad I took her up on it. It's great for special occasions as I visited for Mothers Day. The ambience was very nice for the occasion and although pricey, the food was delicious and the portions were generous.

The prime rib was cooked perfectly. As always, the teacup bread with cinnamon-honey butter was a nice treat.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience on a holidayI have only been to Meriwether's a couple times and had an overall good impression. I booked it for an Easter Lunch/early dinner for two reasons: it was conveniently located, and I did not want a brunch buffet. However, you never know how a restaurant will be on a special holiday. I was very very happy with the entire meal experience. The waitstaff was great - friendly and efficient. The food came out fairly quickly. They seemed to be fully staffed and well versed in taking care of a constant stream of customers all day long and didn't miss a beat! Now I am asking myself, why have I only been there a couple times - I am definitely adding it to my list of go to places for a nice night out-good food, well priced, nice cozy ambiance.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent butThe food was excellent but the restaurant could use remodeling. It would also be nice to have entertainment on Friday and Saturday. We would be inclined to come more often.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
