Meeting place for a meal and sit around for 3 -4 hrs in Merced, CA
We're planning to meet with someone and eat and sit around for 2-3 hours talking in Merced, CA. Any place within20-30 mi would be fine.
Those are the two best options, agreed. If you are less fussy about the food, but want to pay a bit less, I've seen business groups accommodated at Trevinos on Main Street. They are big enough that you could be off by yourself. Also, there is a private room in the back of Fernando's Bistro on Main, but I like both Branding Iron and DeAngelos better.
or, if you want (free) WiFi, come over to the University (about five miles east of town) and meet at the Dining Commons.

Thanks, we'll into it. Although we will be meeting(personal business) next month the week after XMAS. I'll let you know how it turns out.
