The Meeting Place

Drop in for breakfast or lunch at The Meeting Place and see why this family-owned establishment has been a McAlester institution for more than three decades. Grab a seat near the grand, handmade staircase and you’ll quickly notice that this isn’t your average restaurant. Located in a historic downtown building dating back to the late 1800s, The Meeting Place offers a little taste of history alongside its classic American cuisine.

Come early (and hungry) for a wide selection of country breakfast options like bacon and eggs, hearty three-egg omelets, fluffy pancakes and much more. Regulars might steer you toward the French toast, starring two thick slices of bakery-fresh bread dipped in French honey batter and dusted with powdered cinnamon sugar. Whether you’re looking for sweet or savory, The Meeting Place has got your breakfast needs covered.

Stop by for lunch and tuck into a classic, cooked-to-order cheeseburger with all the trimmings, or sink your teeth into a chicken fried steak sandwich or tender roast beef au jus. Try to save room for a slice of The Meeting Place’s famous pecan pie, or take home a whole three-layer cheesecake for the family. Enjoy a meal at this McAlester landmark, and you’ll see why it has stood the test of time.
