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!"

Great first time experience!! Loved the food. Service not so much. We had a server named Jeremy, barely came by wanted more water and order a glasses of wine but he was no where to be found we just ate our food and by the time he showed no need for wine, we left. Maybe less tables? Or attitude change, seemed like he could care less.

Meatballs were dried out and appear to have been deep fried.

I’ve been here many times but this time the food was so so. I ordered the classic meatballs with pasta and the meatballs were so garlicky that I couldn’t eat them. I asked the waiter maybe they gave me the wrong ones but he said it looks like the right ones. My daughter had the same ones and they looked and tasted entirely different. Maybe just a mix up. Normally the food is very good.

We had another great meal at the Meetball place. It was a quiet Wednesday night but our waitress was awesome and we loved the new CBD cocktails. Food came out hot and accurate. We will definitely be back.

A lot of families with young children, which increased the noise level. Would only recommend to families with children

Great place to go on a date. My husband and I had “date” night and decided to check this place out. We’d heard positive reviews from other people, and now join the ranks of other satisfied customers.

We arrived early on a Friday night and got a table immediately. We were seated all the way in the back, so it was quiet enough for us to enjoy our conversation. The music was particularly good- all popular songs from the 80’s.

Apparently, since we got there on a Friday night during happy hour on Labor Day weekend, we were given raffle tickets for a $250 cash prize drawing. We didn’t win, but that was a fun little idea for us to look forward to during dinner.

The drink menu was illuminated- which was so cool. All restaurants should have this. Especially when you’re in a dimly lit restaurant or for people with vision issues.

We ordered 2 sampler platters- choosing 6 different types of meatballs on the menu, plus an order of (ginormously huge) tater tots. Each item came with an accompanying dipping sauce.

Everything was delicious. I would suggest that for those picky eaters, that the server point out which type of meatball and sauce were which. For us, it was fun figuring it out for ourselves, but maybe little toothpick signs would be helpful.

Great place. We’ll definitely be back.

We always enjoy coming to That Meetball Place! Plentiful vegetarian options, and lots of sizable options too if you don't want to have an enormous plate of food. Will most definitely come back.

Hmm where to start. Decided to try this place while attending Live After Five perhaps a mistake as the place was a zoo. Security did a great job but still just way to many young morons. The surprise is the morons were women. Knew it wasn’t going to go well when I got there. We specifically made a reservation for outdoor seating. Apparently they don’t change that choice however that is not a option during Live After Five. Ok so we got to sit indoors no worries. Our waiter was great, have no idea how he could hear anything over the din but he did great. Food was very good nice portions. I would say that I have had far better meatballs and was somewhat disappointed that I want blown away.
The real problem that night was patrons all women all Young deciding to leave their empties on our table as they were leaving, damn rude. I didn’t complain to security because they had enough on their hands. Will give this another shot on a less busy day.

The meat balls were disappointing. We ordered the Brooklyn Sunday Dinner to share and a single meatball to supplement since we each wanted different meatballs.

The meat sauce tasted over cooked. My sausage and pepper meatball had an over cooked, hard spot on the bottom. The pasta was tasteless and the ribs were not exciting.

If you want to go have a dinner where you can’t even speak to whoever you’re with, than this is the place for you!!! The live music is so loud you can’t even carry on a conversation during your meal. Absolute horrible, I’m done with this place. It was my dad’s bday and we couldn’t even enjoy it bc they always have to have some annoying singer, singing as loud as possible.

Enjoyed our first visit & would return! Kids devoured the “ballchos” aka nachos. And I don’t blame them they were delicious! My husband enjoyed sampling the different “meet”balls and the accompanying sauces. I wasn’t impressed with my salad but I’m to blame... this isn’t the place for a salad! Great atmosphere. Very friendly service. We’ll be back!

apparently many of ya recipes changed and the server never told us. we had to send a dish back it was soooooo garlicky!!! service was great until after we got our food then the waitress seemed to vanish maybe because it started to get busy?? kids were supposedly to get dessert and we had to remind the waitress she never asked if we wanted any dessert. overall not as good as in the past unfortunately.

Food was excellent. Server Veronica was Fantastic. The music was much too loud! The guitar player was much too loud. We were sitting near the rear of the resturant and still had an difficult time speaking. It took away from us enjoying the great food.
