If you call during dinner service, you may be given a pick-up time that is later than you anticipated. For preferred pick up times, just like with a reservation, calling early is best. I want to take time to prepare your dinner carefully, and we do not rush orders for the sake of a patron's impulse dinner plans. That being said, thank you for choosing Eat 'n Meet Grill and larder. We are your culinary connection to the local farm harvest. - John Vargo Chef/ Proprietor
- Call ahead with your order and preferred pick up time.
