Anyone been to Meadhall?

Apparently Meadhall opened last week and has been busy since. I'll definitely head over for beers, but I'm interested to hear reactions to the food. I remember hearing that it would be an "upscale gastropub," but when I saw the menu, I laughed out loud.

$23-28 for entrees (with no vegetarian options)? 'Upscale' actually means upscale it seems. The food better be great, because I think it will take more than a long beer list to sustain a giant restaurant in that lightly-populated location. I may be alone, but when I want some beers and dinner, I don't want to be dropping $60-75+ per person.

And am I missing something, or do they not sell mead?

I'll certainly give it a try and won't write it off early, but this is one of those places that I greatly anticipated and now the anticipation has been seriously deflated before I've been there. Same goes for Floating Rock with their 60% price increase from the old location and their bizarre FB posts hyping DJs and playoffs watching - maybe it's a Cambodian sports bar/nightclub now.
