We both ordered the New York strip steaks and both steaks were tough to cut and very chewy. Saw another couple having dinner and she was having to saw cut her filet..
Saw cut a filet... Have always had great experiences here, but something this time wasn’t what it has been in the past...
Best crab cake in the Midwest. Chicken was bland and they ran out of salads. Overall a decent experience.
Our server was pleasant. The building was a pleasant architectural design, however the disturbing artwork detracted from its beauty. Our appetizer, french onion soup, and meal sides were delicious. However, both our our main courses were disappointing. My wife had the Cranberry Brie Chicken. The chicken was dry and it was just a boneless, skinless chicken breast that we could overcook at home. I had the Peppercorn New York Strip. I ordered it medium rare, and it was cooked approximately. It did not possess a taste worthy of its price tag though. It was somewhat bland, with the exception of the occasional peppercorn. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone not wanting to have anything more than drinks and soup.
This was the perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day. They are following social distancing best practices and we enjoyed every minute!
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere! Will definitely go back. The owners are so friendly and involved with customers!
The food was great as always. The service was impeccable. Outstanding place to eat.
Best service, food, quiet, always a class place to enjoy an evening out----clear down to the Peppermint-patty.
We love this local gem! Great food and an amazing atmosphere for date night!
Vera Mae's is our go-to spot for special occasions. Kent and Steve have given Muncie its first and best destination dining location!
It's the perfect casual classiness that we love so much; the way the setting, the food, and service come together makes a meal here so much more than merely eating.
Perfect dinner for me and my wife. We were celebrating and everything was wonderful from the service to the food and drinks
Our first time in Vera Mae's was twenty years ago when we moved to Muncie. It is still our favorite place.
Dining at Vera Mae’s is always superb and a wonderful experience. Quality food and service is the norm.
A jewel in the Midwest. Terrific option in Muncie for two decades plus. Wonderful food, wine list and owners.
Great experience - Amazing food, stellar servive, and very enjoyable hosts. Definately worth the drive from Indianapolis - we will be back.
Great food great place highly recommend this place
Another fabulous meal with wonderful service. Love this local gem!
Overall, very nice experience. Unfortunately, the meal quality was not up to the standard that we have had many time previously. Scallops and chicken preparations were mediocre.
Our second visit was just as good as the first. We happened upon Vera Mae's about a year ago while in town on business. This time we drove 1 hour just to go to Vera Mae's tonight. Our service was great! The food was quite good and cocktails were delicious.
Always good to see Kent and have a bowl of French Onion soup. great experience as ususal
Food was good but my steak was extremely tough, and my friends chicken, though good, was also tough. The sides were not good, and they were cold. The waiter told us they were out of salad, which we intended to order. This was not our usual experience at Vera Mae’s. We will be back for another try.
The menu sounded wonderful...it was not! My husband had chicken with Brie and raspberry sauce. Chicken was dry, one little dry hunk of Brie on top, raspberry sauce was missing in action. I had Coquille St Jacque (sp). It was no where near the dish I remember. There were 4 scallops and the price was $40. Never Again!
Another memorable experience. Owners are top shelf and make you feel like family. Delighted to make this our go to for the next three years while daughter is at BSU! Food outstanding as always.
I enjoyed your restaurant but really didn't like the preparation on the alligator I ordered. The tenderloin was fabulous and bourbon a two-thumbs-up but the alligator was tough and tasteless.
Always great place for a great meal and enjoy surroundings.
Long wait between course, 25 minutes between each.
It is always a pleasurable experience. Wonderful service, food and atmosphere.
This is a wonderful place to have celebratory out of the ordinary gourmet meals. A lot of choice and all of it excellent. We had the ahi appetizer. I had the French onion soup. I had the scallops St. Jacques. Very delicious. A place gourmet chefs would enjoy and try to steal from. All servings adequate in size. Bring an appetite for a marvelous evening. Get a great seating while weather lasts on their outdoor patio seating.
Date night at one of our very favorite restaurants!
Our meal was spectacular and Ben took excellent care of our table.
Outdoor seating was a bit noisy and planted flowers were in my face.
The food and service was great. The red snapper was cooked to perfection. We always get the French onion soup and it was done very good. The spinach and feta wantons didn’t disappoint. We thought a seafood wanton would be interesting to make with spinach and crab. Thank you for a delightful evening.
A very special meal. The best I have had in a long time. We would definitely return for another meal.
This was the worst dining experience I have ever had in my life! I usually like Vera Mae's but this visit was a loser in almost every way, except the food.
If you want a really nice dinner in Muncie and be able to dine in or outside, this is the place to go for sure!
The food was fabulous, adequate social distancing between tables and the owners Kent and Steve were very attentive to every customer whether you were seated inside or out. Like one big family!
Excellent as always!
We had great food and great service. We highly recommend Vera Mae's as a relaxing environment with great ambience.
Sometimes people forget Vera Mae's with a sort of "been there", "done that". It is still an outstanding place to eat!
Love this place! Consistently good food and service!
Vera Mae's is doing an excellent job keeping their customers safe. It is on a very short list of places we are going since re-opening. The food, drinks (I had a cocktail), and ambiance were perfect.
Excellent place to eat. Food is always good and staff is outstanding.
