Venue Description

The next time your board, trustees, social club or old college friends are getting together, why not make it memorable? Book an intimate dinner in the Meridian’s private, upstairs hideaway. For parties of 20 or fewer, there’s not a more secluded dining room in town – and you can select a special menu or order from the night’s menu. In either case, your group will be elevated to a new level of dining experience.
In-Home Fine Dining
Now you can offer your dinner and party guests the outstanding tastes of the Meridian Restaurant. Our full service catering operation will customize the entire experience – from a special menu, cocktails, wine pairings and desserts that make for a wonderful, hassle-free meal. Your private chef and service staff will be onsite at the location of your choosing to accommodate all your needs. We look forward to creating a truly special event for you.
Meridian History
MERIDIAN occupies a prominent site on the great American street for which it is named. A two story log structure was erected in the 1880s at this prime location between Meridian Street and the Indiana Central Canal. Some of those original logs remain as a reminiscence of the history of this unique property that has served food and drink to Hoosiers and travelers alike for nearly a century.

After extensive rebuilding, MERIDIAN opens a new chapter in fine dining and gracious service at this address. With views of the historic homes along Meridian Street and of the peaceful green space of Alice Carter Park, MERIDIAN is unparalleled in its combination of wonderful food and comfortable surroundings.
Whether you visit for lunch with old friends on the patio, plan a memorable dinner for two by the fireplace, or stop by for a drink and dessert in the bar after the theatre, MERIDIAN will provide exceptional food and service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. You will discover that MERIDIAN is determined to be one of Indiana’s great restaurants on one of America’s great streets.
