A place to MEET & have a BALL! We are brand new to Patchogue & couldn't be happier to serve our local community freshly prepared meatballs a variety of different ways.

Our idea began years ago when we realized the simplicity of the meatball and how it is a comfort food to many. We all grew up with our Grandmothers making Sunday dinner and "The Meatball" being the focal point of the day. We cherish those days of coming together with our families and the memories we created. Our goal here at "That Meetball Place" is to create an atmosphere for friends and families to gather together and enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed environment with a great vibe and simple food like grandma used to make. Our chef has taken fresh ingredients and developed meatballs, salads & sides to satisfy everyone in your family. We are excited for you to join us on this journey and please make us your "Place to meet and have a ball!"

Floor was was sticky and just smelled so bad like old beer. The hostess laughed when I mentioned it and said she knew 🤣 sat for over 10 min not one person acknowledged us. Left and went somewhere else.

Food was soso. Everything seems to be alacart. Ribs came with nothing other than the coleslaw underneath. No even good. Ribs were good. Brought appetizer and meal at the same time and they thought that was ok. So we sent it back.

It took awhile and a few requests for the managers to get the heat operating. It was freezing there for too long!

Very good food but a person in our reservation was not ever allowed into the restaurant. He was informed his outfit did not meet the dress code and after listening to the requirements he went home and changed and once again was not let into the restaurant.

There is nothing bad to say! We had a group of 10 for a birthday celebration! Our waiter was the best (Dan). He was very professional, conscientious. The food was delicious. Everyone loved their meals and cocktails. They of course have meatballs but the menu has many different tasty items!!!!!

When we first arrived it was quite cold at the front of the restaurant. We requested a different table and they were happy to accommodate. We had an outstanding waiter and place an order of appetizers with drinks while we waited for the last couple to arrive. I ordered a medium rare burger and had to send it back because it was too well done. The second one which I had to wait for was also too well done - medium. Other choices had great reviews. The Chicken Parma was outstanding. Potato soup was fabulous as well. All in all we would definitely go back.
It would help if there were some better descriptions of some of the food.

Thought this was a nice place to go for an Italian meal. Great place if you’re a young teenybopper and you like deafening noise. Our server was very nice but we ended up walking out before we ordered could not take the noise level. Don’t understand why restaurants think you need 49 TVs and inane Loud pulsating music to dine by. You can’t hold a conversation with your companions.

The air conditioning was on too cold. It seemed like they were short staffed. Took forever to get our food. But the food was delicious. I will definitely go back, hopefully they will be more staffed.

Very disappointed. Walking in and to our table the floor was very tacky. Very loud, could not hear anyone. Food okay, way over priced. The wait, & bus staff, was excellent. Annoyed that a 3% fee was charged for using my credit card.

Literally made a reservation days in advance for a bachelorette party. Arrived exactly on time to have to stand around for 10 minutes for them to find a spot and set it up. They threw us in the very back where we couldn’t hear the music despite there being a live DJ, meanwhile the front looked completely empty (could have had other reservations but maybe prioritize events as opposed to just people coming in for a regular Sunday brunch?) While the waitress already had a full section in the back, they sat her a new table of literally 25-30 people which clearly was far too overwhelming for ONE SINGLE waitress to handle while already having a full section. She did her absolute best and was a sweetheart, so there was absolutely nothing wrong in reference to her, but obviously she can’t take care of her other tables in a timely manner when she just got seated 25-30 new people. No one can. Basically once that massive table was sat, anything else we tried to order, we had to ask about multiple times as 30 minutes would go by and we still had not received it nor was the waitress able to pay any attention to us. Food took far longer than it ever has to come out (the restaurant was literally half empty) and when it did finally come out, it was cold, which was obviously disappointing. Management at this place is absolutely HORRID and honestly, MB was one of my favorite brunch places and this past weekends experience makes me never want to come back. As a Maid of Honor planning my best friends bachelorette brunch/ party, this was very very embarrassing for me to have brought her to.

Went for brunch on a Sunday and it was delicious. Plenty of choices and different kids of brunch food than you would usually find. Food came out hot and was very tasty. The atmosphere was a lot of fun with a DJ and lots of people. If you are thinking about trying it definitely do so. Will go back again!

We were one of 3 tables in the restaurant, it was pretty empty for a Saturday brunch but the food sounded great so we were looking forward to it. Immediately we thought the music was terrible, it was like a sad 80’s playlist and definitely not a fun brunch vibe. But that wasn’t a big deal, the problem really was that we sat at the table for over 20 minutes with no one coming over to ask us if we need drinks or anything. We saw the bartender on his phone next to the bar and the waitresses would look at us but then walk the other way. The 2 tables next to us were being served drinks and food but the waitresses walked by us about 10 times before we got up and left. They completely ignored us and the place was not busy at all! It was disappointing because we were looking forward to it but it was really the worst service I’ve ever witnessed. I would not recommend this place for brunch or really anything after this experience.

Food was good. Our waiter was ok kept forgetting us and it wasn’t busy but was still really nice. They were somehow out of shrimp at 6 PM but not a deal breaker on going back.

The music was absolutely way too loud, we were unable to even hear the staff when ordering. Staff continuously pulled down their masks in order for us to hear them and had to stand super close in order to even ask for water. Wait staff was nowhere to be found during bottomless mimosas. Arrived on time (2pm) and the restaurant ran out of orange juice for mimosas. Overall poor experience.

Very nice looking bar. Very loud. Food was pretty good. Had the Marinara meatballs which were very nice as was the Mac and Cheese. The sandwich I ordered was a little bland and flat.. Not what I was expecting. Good for drinks and Happy Hour.

We had a birthday brunch this Sunday with family. The server was super attentive without being overbearing, pleasant, professional, helpful, and had a great attitude. The atmosphere was really nice and the food was delicious. Most of us ordered the "Bottomless Mimosas"; this was a terrific value. The pricing on the menu options was great as well. We are looking forward to celebrating at Meetball Place again!

Made a reservation for 3pm on Saturday. Got to the restaurant and the music was so loud that the hostess couldnt even hear our name for checking us in. The place was packed with way to many people for the current situation, and we were given a tiny table right outside of the kitchen doors where people were constantly coming in and out. Stayed 5 minutes and then had to leave. Not a great experience for what was supposed to be a birthday meal.

Food here is great however, it is loud and service can take long. We were going here every month for a date night. Tonight the hostess didn’t like that we asked to sit in the back where it was quieter. She didn’t care that we decided to not stay. Not very friendly or helpful. Went elsewhere and will continue to go elsewhere from now on.

Our food was horrible. Surf and turf $35 and asked for medium steak. Steak came out well done and like rubber. Crab legs sat in water way too long and were soggy. Waiter didn’t even ask how our food was.
