Due to the pandemic, seating is restricted to outside dining only. I was happy to find a place that even had this so it is hard to fault them at all here. I think due to the traffic noise level I would opt to return when there is inside dining available as well. The brunch menu was a bit limited but the food quite good.

Outdoor dining at mess hall was wonderful. The outdoor area they have added is really nice and the food is very good though you will need a nap afterward! Big portions. Their Brussel sprouts are delicious.
I enjoyed their margaritas and oysters too.

Safety first!
They did such a great job of making me feel safe.
Waiters are in masks with face shields
The menu is via QR code
Tables in “garden” (parking lot) are well spaced out and food is as good as ever!

Messhall is doing a great job of ensuring safety during this time of COVID. The tables are set up at reasonable distance from each other. All servers wear masks and face shields and the host takes your temperature upon arrival which increases my sense of safety. The food was delicious. Possibly better than I remember it. The Salmon with Broccolini and sweet potato coulis could not have been better. I will be back again and again.

Messhall is a longtime favorite and they have been following strict protocols from what I've seen from when they re-opened. Tables are clean, ordering is via app (no hard menus), distancing is observed. They've opened an additional dining patio in the parking lot in addition to the historic Car Cafe patio which is set off the street, thus quieter than some of the other patios I've been to. Great job, Messhall!

very consistent post covid rules. I've been a customer for years, and they've managed to maintain the quality of food, coffee drinks, and service with all the new covid obstacles. I'm so glad they had a huge outdoor patio, it's certainly helped their business.

No major complaints. Just thought the price of the food was a bit too pricey for what it was. Also, all wines by the glass were a bit too pricey and the pours weren't heavy.

They’ve done a terrific job adjusting to outdoor only dining. But a great idea for the next few months might be to install ceiling fans on the patio...

Lovely outdoor COVID dining experience. We felt "safe" and were able to enjoy our meal.
Would love an expanded vegetarian menu.....the things we had, though, were delicious, especially the mac and cheese.

I've always loved Mess Hall's covered patio and now that outdoor dining is allowed it's the perfect place for a delicious turkey burger and a glass of wine or pint of beer.

The staff are always friendly and attentive and I'm pleased I can help a local business during these challenging time.

Great service---even in his full-on plastic and cloth masks our waiter was extremely helpful. Atmosphere great, although during a pandemic anywhere is great. Food was very good---might have been better on real plates---loved the wine, but it's somehow not as appealing in a plastic cup. But hey, what else can we do?

I felt so safe dining during coronavirus times. They check everyone’s temperature, have well-spaced tables, staff wear masks & shields, menus are QR scanned and all food including drinks are in disposable dinnerware.
