Our most favorite dinner in Muncie. It’s always a treat and everything we always want.

Went for Valentine's day so while the service was a little slow that was understandable as they were very busy. However, at 60 dollars a person the food was very underwhelming. My date and I both felt indifferent about most courses and negatively about some. Definitely not worth the price although the live music was cool.

This was the first time my husband and I went to Vera Mae’s. It was delicious and a great atmosphere! The couple that owns the restaurant were wonderful with guests. They were kind and it was nice to watch them hug and call the regulars by name. The food was great and the portion size was perfect. We went home stuffed and just had a little bit of leftovers. Will definitely be coming back to try the cream brûlée!! :)

We ate at Vera Mae’s for my grandma’s 75th Birthday. The staff was all very nice and our waitress was especially friendly. She was very helpful with picking out cocktails and answering any questions we had about our food. The food was delicious, especially the French onion soup. I would highly recommend coming here if you’re looking for a nicer place to eat.

A wonderful dining experience. Terrific food and great service. This is our go-to place for special events when we are visiting Muncie. Thank you for another great evening!

Excellent overall traditional experience and atmosphere....filet was undercooked but decided to take issue. New contemporary artworks will enhance experience see 21C petit performances/musicians, light mood shifts, guest chefs, group tables with strangers, aromatic fragrances, variety of seating options will entice new visitors...eric

We needed to discuss committee business and decided to combine that with lunch. The good fun and wonderful sunshine combined to make our meeting very successful.

This was an ideal location for a business meeting. An issue needed to be discussed and resolved. Good food and pleasant surroundings facilitated the purpose of the lunch.

We enjoy what the owners have done with the "experienced" location. The dining room is pleasant, the food is great, and the service is well done. The cost is very much in line with the value received.

We had a very productive working lunch facilitated by very good food and high quality service. Muncie is fortunate to have such a facilitative venue.
