Happy Valentines Day! Imagine on a shivering cold, ice beneath your feet day, coming into the Neely House kitchen to the smell of these fresh baked beauties! Our Pastry Chef Tomas Kruzliak has warmed my soul with more of his amazing skills. This weekend we are sold out with a waiting list for our inspired dinners by Executive Chef Nick Kirkpatrick but we still have room at our celebrated brunch, both Saturday and Sunday where 100% of our baked goods are made in house including our elegant deserts! I love this place!

2020 At The Neely House: Changes and improvements are apart of every business and here is a samples of a few things to watch for. We have purchased two additional inner-city lots for expanding our own food production. This will supply a new expanded vegan and vegetarian category of our menu named Tomas's Garden.
There will be an additional category of small plates and gastro pub style offerings entitled The Melting Pot. This section will be highlighting exotic flavor profiles from the many cultures that make American cuisine deliciously diverse.
In the atmosphere department look for changes that enhance the different rooms and their functions, within the Neely home. I.e. The Library will feature new table tops that emulate leather inlayed desk tops with a gold leaf feather quill pen.
Conversations and planning have begun for an expanded bar and conservatory/Solarium, a feature that was removed from the house, expanding our outside dining too!
Changes in uniforms and our soundtrack too will remind our guests that we will continue to strive to make The Neely House all that it can be.
A calendar of special events will be posted soon, to our website featuring holidays and special themed Tasting Dinner Parties. Watch closely as reservations will be required for these limited seating events.

Do you have a Christmas Eve menu?? I would love to bring my daughter for a wonderful dinner!
Thank you for making our evening extra special celebrating our friends 50th wedding anniversary!
Had brunch today at the Neely House and i have to tell you it was excellent. Everything was excellent from decor to service. The food was amazing! In our group we had the sausage scramble, crab cake with eggs benedict, bibb salad and carrot ginger soup. It was all very flavorful and elegantly plated. For dessert we had the blueberry bread pudding with lemon custard and the chocolate torte. Fabulous! We will definitely be back to try the dinner selection for our anniversary.
Saturday & Sunday brunch are terrific.
Brunch yesterday with my daughters and granddaughter. Adelyne loved having tea and the food was delicious. This is my 3rd time being at the Neely House and I have not been disappointed. Beautiful atmosphere for any occasion.
Wow! I can't believe what you've done with that house! I grew up in the neighborhood in the 80's and early 90's when it was split up into apartments. Next time I'm back in Muncie I'll definitely stop in. Congratulations and good luck!
Great job tonight and I look forward to great things from you all in the future!
Still looking for one or two creative people for our kitchen pantry / prep staff. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested please contact our Executive Chef Ian Waid. 216-1647
