Father’s Day Brunch was outstanding. I had the Steak and Eggs, which was a special that day. The NY Strip was perfect and the breakfast potatoes were delicious.

My go to place for a very good dining experience. Service is outstanding without being intrusive . The food is really quite good, a little on the pricey side for brunch/lunch but I’m willing to pay it. There is a good selection of entrees from which to choose. I highly recommend the Downtown Table for any event.

I like the food here. I have been to lunch several times. I hear that dinner is delicious also.
I especially enjoy their cocktails. Each time I go, I try something different.
I have not been disappointed!

Excellent food , excellent service! It’s a tad pricey for lunch but the quality is well worth it. I do wish there were some booth arrangements so that when you are there to conduct business it would be a bit more private and less noisy; but I know the space is tight. My lunch was extended in time bc of business but never once did we feel rushed even though we closed out the lunch period of time . They were very gracious. We will be back!

My family and I had a wonder meal at The Mebane Downtown Table. We loved everything- the classic drinks, the appetizers, entrees and desserts. The food was fresh and tasted so delicious! The art work around the restaurant is beautiful. My mother said that it was the best meal she’s had in a very long time.

A most pleasant surprise. We booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a local friend as a celebration meal for daughter's Elon graduation. Our meal was fantastic. My wife and I had the special that evening which was Halibut over garlic potatoes and green tomatoes. Vegetarian Gluten free daughter said her spaghetti squash was very good. Wines were good and chef clearly takes pride in selecting not widely known but quality wines. Had a very unique cheesecake for dessert which was not listed on the menu. Server was very attendant with good recommendations and very accommodating taking pictures etc of our party. Street is very quaint and we found a parallel parking spot right next to the restaurant. Overall would definitely recommend. Just sorry we didn't find until graduation! Now need an excuse to return!

One of our favorite places. We are often in the area bc our kids are at Elon University. This is a great find, and we've had many fabulous dinners here, for celebrations and simply because we wanted a good meal. The people who work here are lovely and accommodating and the food is fresh, seasonal, interesting and delicious. I always order whatever the seasonal green tomato appetizer is, because it's routinely wonderful. Save room for the coconut cake! Best ever. Also good wine list and cocktails. Highly recommend. To be safe, make a reservation. If you can't get what you want on Open Table, call the restaurant directly. They always figure something out.

This was our first visit the The Mebane Downtown Table. We had heard from several friends and family that it is a very special place and well worth going. We were not disappointed! The filet mignon was delicious and cooked perfectly; the shrimp with pasta had a wonderful flavor. Our waitress, Natasha, was warm as well as helpful in making recommendations for us. We definitely intend to return many times in the future.

I think I may have been on an “off night” where communication from kitchen to staff to customer was a bit lacking. My girlfriend and I ordered an appetizer that arrived very quickly. However, when it came to our entrees it took a full hour to be served from the time we ordered with no communication about the wait. When asked, the answer I received was that the kitchen was unsure about product levels of the special that they advertised and were scrambling to make sure they had sufficient items to serve. If this would of been communicated to us, it would have easily given 5 stars. The lack of empathy on the time is really what bummed me out...

Brunch after a wedding celebration last night brought us to The Table. It was only moderately busy, but two large groups seemed to occupy several wait staff's attention. The two biscuits with apple butter brought early was a thoughtful and delicious beginning with the quite good coffee. The avocado toast breakfast was well prepared and quite tasty. However it could benefit from one additional slice to accompany the two crispy slices of bacon provided. The on the town breakfast was good but also needs a third slice of bacon. Delicious sourdough toast though! Took a while to get someone's attention for a coffee refill. That's the reason for the #4 rating. I don't expect it to take 10 minutes for wait staff to see my gestures for their attention. Overall a good meal and I'd certainly return to try the lunch selections.

This was our first time in Mebane. Finding a restaurant this nice in the typical-looking small Southern town was a surprise! The ambiance was very pleasant. There is a full bar menu of drinks, wine, and beer. We don’t eat meat, which can sometimes be a difficult situation away from a larger city, but there were two good vegetarian main dish choices on the menu, a sandwich with portobello mushrooms and avocados, and a vegan bowl with spaghetti squash, oyster mushrooms, and other great ingredients. The meat-based choices also looked like they’d be good. Our server was helpful and attentive without hovering.

I would definitely go back for another meal if I found myself in Mebane.

The Mebane Downtown Table was perfect for our group of 5 that shared Easter brunch together. While the food and service were of a very high quality, the best thing about the restaurant was the fact that the noise level was very low and the ambiance was very comfortable and pleasant. We all had something different and all were very happy with their choices. The selection for brunch was very well split between sweet and savory for the crossover of breakfast and lunch. Excellent menu. This was our second trip there from Greensboro and we will go back again!

This past Saturday was my first time dining at The Mebane Downtown Table. I treated my friend to a birthday treat-brunch. I was pleased with the ease of reservations and parking. The staff was very good. However, the waitress never asked how our food was, for if she had I would have told her that I was not happy. My friend and I both ordered the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. It came with roasted, red potatoes. Both the crab cakes and the potatoes were cool. It would have delicious had it been warm/hot.
Because I previously read several positive reviews about the coconut cake, I ordered a slice. It had good flavor and the icing was good, however the cake was dry.
I will not speculate as to why our food was served at a unsatisfactory temperature, but I do know it had nothing to do with the crowd, because it was not crowded when we arrived.

Second trip there. First was fine. The chili relleno was cold. I sent it back, and the improvement was negligible. When the cheese in the relleno doesn’t melt, and is still inside the chili as a block, it should be a warning sign that it is not cooked at temperature. A really big miss. My wife’s dish was adequate. Wine by the glass,for what they are pouring, is too expensive. The value is not there.
