SHARE: Meadowlark Dining Room
The Meadowlark Dining Room in the Clubhouse is the social hub of Mountain Meadows, serving lunch and dinner four days a week and brunch on Sunday. Our chef provides tasty, well-balanced and healthy meals paid for by residents as part of a meal program. On holidays, extra effort is invested to make the meals special occasions, including hors d'oeuvres and festive service.
Our gathering place
Our residents happily will tell you that the Meadowlark Dining Room is where we come together to share meals and conversation. Guests and family members are always welcome. From its second-floor windows we have gorgeous panoramic views of Mount Ashland, the Siskiyou Mountains and downtown Ashland.
The Dining Room serves lunch and dinner Wednesday through Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. On the other days, we can take advantage of many wonderful local restaurants, or create our own meals in the well-equipped kitchens that are a feature of every residence. High-quality food trucks selected by the community rotate to provide meals-to-go in front of the Clubhouse on most Monday and Tuesday evenings when the Dining Room is closed.
Healthy and delicious meals
Our Executive Chef, who has been at Mountain Meadows since 2001, is known for his healthy and appealing menus. With input and feedback from the residents’ Food Services Committee and interaction with diners, he creates delicious meals using fresh local fruits and vegetables and high-quality meat and fish. Menus are varied and balanced, with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available. Fixed-price dinners include soup, salad bar, entrée, bread, dessert and beverage, and à la carte choices are offered as well. Diners may bring their own alcoholic beverages, with glassware provided.
Each resident’s monthly owners association fees currently includes an allocation of $95 per person for Dining Room upkeep and operating costs. Residents also pay a basic fee of $80 per person per month, against which meal costs are charged. Charges for meals in addition to this fee, and home delivery or takeout fees, appear on monthly invoices. For a small additional charge, residents may host guests for meals. No cash is used in the Dining Room, and it is a tip-free establishment.
