Go for the Ribs and the service

All-you-can-eat rib night (Tuesday) is very good. Ribs were excellent. Chicken Parm leaves something to be desired. Manager is excellent; wait staff was very good. Breakfast was good and reasonably priced.

We ate here in the past but this visit was very disappointing. There was an event going on and we were seated right next to it. Couldn't even talk to each other. My husband's order and mine were wrong. I tried to eat my meal but just couldn't. The waiter offered to replace it but by then every one else... More

We always enjoy Matthew's when we are stay at Casa Del Mar. Both lunch and dinner are excellent. The food is always fresh and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. They have 2 happy hours a day.

you can't get much closer to the water than sitting on the patio at Matthew's. The staff are really accommodating and friendly. The service was great and food was tasty.

Had lunch at Matthew's. Great food and atmosphere was fun. Pulled rib sandwich hit the spot. We will try dinner menu before we leave.

Awesome food and drinks and service. Grouper sandwich was the best. It's nice surroundings but okay to wander in for lunch in bathing suits and cover-ups.

Nice clean restaurant great waffles for breakfast and don't forget the Hot Dog for lunch or happy hour, just be careful as they include tip on bill, only overtip on superior service which they are very capable of doing, great friendly staff at all positions.

Went to the Sunday brunch here for Father's Day. The food was very good with a wide selection of items to choose from. The wait staff was great and this restaurant does an excellent job at marketing. Would not hesitate to go back

There are few things better than enjoying a meal oceanside. The delicious food and the sounds of the waves made for perfect dining...lunch, snacks and dinner. Happy hour is 3 times a day (noon, 4pm and 9pm) and it does not disappoint. Friendly staff, smiles for everyone!
