For a place called Meadhall, you will not be disappointed by their beer (and mead) selection. The food was much better than expected, encompassing surprising range and good selection. There are your reliable options like burger and fries, then there are less common seasonal fares like the venison sausage when I was there. Service was warm and courteous. The ambience casual, and appropriately bubbly if slightly loud. Good for groups.

Beer is great, 100+ to choose from. The only two things I order on the menu are either the burger or the veggie burger - both are amazing. Probably the best veggie burger ever, comes with an olive and some sort of Greek yogurt spread on top. Delicious with beer. The fries are good too. Difficult for large groups since out gets quite busy but 4 or less people is usually fine.

$11 for a half full glass of mead that tastes like honey water with a splash of alcohol is just too much. And the food was just american style burger/grub. The meadhall is not bad, just too pretentious for what it is right now

Very bad service. Did not even sit down to eat. I was on my own and told that the window seats are only for groups of 3 or more. This was when there was more people found on the deck of the Marie Celest. I pointed out all the empty seats but is was easier to turn customers away rather than seat me in my preferred seat. Won't be going back. Plus side, found a very welcoming place just round the corner. Thanks for finding me a better friendlier place to eat.

Pretty good as a bar with certainly a great selection across the board. But seeing as how it's supposed to be a "meadhall," I was rather disappointed by its selection of meads. As I recall there were only 2 or 3 meaderies represented, and a total of only a few meads, mostly of a very sweet variety. Would have liked to see some more original/interesting meads like the Dry Hopped variety by Maine Mead Works, for example. But if you are really just here for beer, you'll probably be quite content!

Like some other reviewers, I experienced some of the worst service here. I came with some friends to grab some birthday drinks. We were supposed to be 3, but ended up being 6. The wait for a table for 6 would be half an hour or more (on a Thursday night) so we decided to grab some drinks at the bar while waiting. The selection was great but the bartender was not the friendliest. When we were called for our table, we were pretty much threatened that we had to go right at that moment or they would give the 2 tables away. Settling the bill at the bar in the meantime took about 10 minutes. When we sat down at our tables, the waitress serving us was quite friendly. We all had drinks but only 2 of us ordered some food/appetizers. After waiting for this food for about 10 minutes the manager showed up, and we all assumed he wanted to see we were doing ok. Well, we couldn't be further away from the truth. He said they were so busy and had people waiting for tables, and since we only ordered 'like, soup and fries', could we maybe go upstairs in the lounge area where they had couches since this was a dining type of establishment. When asked if there were available couches, he said it was first-come first-serve at which point I of course asked where we were supposed to eat our food on these couches, of which none seemed to be available? He said the hostess/waitress made it clear to us that we would have to eat before seating us, at which point I said no such thing happened (and had 5 other people with me who could confirm), to which he kept insisting that yes she did. I'm not sure how he would know since he was not there, or why the person assigned to be manager and deal with customers would be so awfully unprofessional and rude in insisting we were wrong, when his staff was to blame for not communicating. Essentially we were kicked off the table and absolutely no apology was offered either for displacing us or for the way we were treated to this point. So you can imagine, after having the manager come to our table and tell us our only option was to vacate the table we decided to leave. We looked for our waitress to let her know and settle the bill, and, to make this situation even worse, she informed us she had actually decided not to put in our order for 'just soup and fries', and not tell us! The only silver lining I could see in this situation was that we did not want to be there or eat the food anyway, so we left right away. This absolute rude attitude and lack of communication on the staff's part puts this place on my no-visit list. On our way out I counted 5-6 empty tables, when we were asked to vacate tables on the premise that the establishment was too busy to accommodate people who were more interested in getting drinks. This place was clearly more concerned with getting money from people who would be potentially dining (who were nowhere to be seen) than making their current customers happy.
