We had a holiday get-together, and this was a perfect setting for it with tasteful, festive decor. We enjoyed the roaring fire and the good energy of the restaurant. The Food was excellent, and the employees were friendly and genuine. We could not have had a better experience.

Seated us 15 minutes past reservation time & then rushed us through dinner b/c kirktchen was closing in 45 minutes. Weber Sam was phenomenal and made up for reception staff blunder/apathy. Scallops were excellent.

Honestly, this place was such a disappointment. First, is the lack of cleanliness. We were sat at a booth and I made the mistake of touching the wall ledge, it was white with dust and dirt. Gross. Second, it took 15 mins before our server greeted us. She was polite and did her best to accommodate us. So we looked pass the beginning experience. Third, my husband order a dish with muscles and shrimp both were over cooked and tasted old. After a few bites he couldn’t stomach it. It was sent back to the kitchen. Instead he ordered a Caesar salad with chicken. At least they can make a good salad. The manager actually tried to convince us they order shrimp that always cooks tough. Wtf? My dish was over cooked and bland.

Do not go there. Just awful.

We came here for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a 4pm reservation (which was super easy to book online) and were seated around 4:15. The place was quite busy.
They had the regular menu or you could order the traditional thanksgiving meal for $23.99, which we ordered. It started with their warm teacup bread and sweet cinnamon butter. Yum!
The main meal consisted of turkey (mixed light & dark meat), mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing, cranberry and a slice of yellow squash. For desert you had a choice of pumpkin, apple or pecan pie.
The meal was delicious and plenty to take home for a second meal. The only negatives were that the squash was bland - I would've preferred something like green beans or some green vegetable. And there was only a tiny amount of whipped cream on the pumpkin pie.
The employees were all hard workers and very friendly. Even the ones serving other tables smiled at me.
They also offered free valet service which was nice. The valet turned on my heated seats.

We went for a Thanksgiving meal with extended family and the food was excellent, the atmosphere was friendly, and the service was great! Everyone in the group enjoyed the meal and said they would definitely do it again! Thanks to all who worked on Thanksgiving Day to make it such a wonderful experience.

Enjoyed dinner very much. Service was superb. Food was very good and represented a good value for the price. I liked the place and will go back. My one suggestion is to turn off the Muzak.. It does not fit the character of the restaurant . No background music is either needed nor appreciated at a spot that is quiet by design.

Our First and Last Visit, Our food was ok once we FINALLY gotten it, Which we had waited over an 1hr for. Our server seemed to be more concerned with the needs of those at the table next to us, seeing as though that's where most of his time was spent Even though we were seated first.

The Sea Bass special was outstanding after a tasty house salad. The atmosphere is cozy, country with enough space between tables that you can enjoy a great conversation over dinner without others over hearing. We will definitely come back here again. Valet parking is available.

Awesome as usual at Meriwether's. Food is excellent and the service is even better. A super comfortable atmosphere with personable smiling waitstaff...my family meets there every year to celebrate Dad and it's always a happy gathering thanks to Meriwether's effort. Cannot imagine this annual luncheon anywhere else:)

The booth seating was quiet and cozy for this special occasion. Donna was our server. Good wine selections by the glass or the bottle. Reasonably priced as well.
You will love the teacup bread that comes individually with each meal as well as the honey butter.
High recommendations for the squash soup - a seasonal favorite! It’s slightly sweet, a bit savory and garnished with a dollop of goat cheese.

Meriwether’s is in drastic need of a makeover and upgrade. Dark and dingy, it feels stuck in the 1980s. The food was OK at best with the steak very good, a lovely soup special but the lobster tail so, so over cooked. Wait staff were positive and attentive which was probably the best thing to be said. Probably a restaurant living on past glories..

Two couples came for lunch after burying a dear relative at a nearby cemetery. Mary was our server, and her service was spectacular. She had no idea why we were there or where we had just been, yet she was kind, respectful, and professional! Top notch! Thank you, Mary, and thank you, Merriweather's, for offering a diversity of food (soup, salad, sandwich, and pasta) to satisfy all of us at s sad time!

I had potato crusted whitefish at another Landry's restaurant which was amazing but here it was hash browns piled on the fish. Wine wasn't served until after the soup when we inquired about it and instead of apologizing, the server told us she wanted us to have food first.
