Took my family out for my mother's birthday and we had a very enjoyable and relaxing lunch. The waitress we had was outstanding. Probably the best service we have had in a long time anywhere. The food highlight for me was the shrimp and artichoke pasta dish my wife ordered. Absolutely delicious! I also enjoyed the prime rib sandwich. The desserts were also very tasty as was Martha's vineyard salad.

We chose Meriwether's for our Easter dinner and had a wonderful dining experience. We did have a wait for our food, but that's expected for a holiday. Our server was top notch, one of the best we have ever had and hope we get her again. The food was delicious and loved the fresh baked rolls with cinnamon butter. I will get the Ultimate Seafood Trio again the next time we visit. We will come back to try their Early Bird dinner specials and I am looking forward to celebrating Mother's Day at Meriwether's.

I felt the food was very good. I had the scallops. A very unique take on scallops with fall flavors ( it was spring but still good) Waitress was not the most attentive, but it was busy for them.
I will not be returning not because of anything but the cost. I feel for the money there are a couple better options with better ambiance. However I would tell most people to give it one try.

We have frequented Meriwethers for annual family functions and find their service friendly and superb. Specifically, Renee has been our server multiple times and we will ask for her section again. We have never had a bad meal there.

They have a good early bird dinner 4-6 pm where you have a choice of salads, 5 dinner options and sherbet or vanilla ice cream for dessert (or other options for an up-charge) and the cost is only a dollar or two more than the entree alone. The food was very good, especially the seafood choices and we always like the Martha's Vineyard salad and tea cup bread.

The service was somewhat slow and the restaurant was not that crowded on a Friday night. I like a porter or stout beer and our server was not sure if they had any. They did not, so she offered an IPA, but did not know which one. After she found out, I tried it and it was OK, but was disappointed with the lack of beer choices.

The service was excellent. Relaisha was very attentive to our needs without being intrusive. She was very pleasant and friendly, prompt with our food when ready. the food was beautifully displayed (we had the coconut shrimp with rice and green beans); the clam chowder was nice and hot. It was a perfect setting for an evening meal to celebrate a friend's birthday. Unfortunately, we forgot to take photos as we enjoying the food and atmosphere! We'll be back!

The crab cakes and red skin mash potatoes were excellent! I didn't care too much for the Key Lime pie...the graham cracker crust was not good. The service was excellent! My waitress was very attentive. My friend was late joining me but my waitress kept checking back to see if I needed anything. I would definitely go back for dinner or have appetizers at the bar.

We dined with another couple and were very pleased with the selections and service. We requested a table in the back room so that we would be able to talk without the higher noise level in the main dining area.

The restaurant needs a major makeover...the experience was just that, an experience. The food was palatable, but nothing about it stuck out...our server did her job. Other than the Muer name associated with it, not likely to go back.

First visit and will be my last visit. Stuffed chicken was hard and not tasty. Mashed potatoes bland. Lemon drop horrible, dark and dusty decor. Back Stairs iced over and very hazardous and yes staff was aware.. the food was substandard, not as good as even red lobster for 3 times the cost. Blah....I left there hungry for a quality meal.
