A schnitzel house!

We were in town for the weekend and were pleased to discover somewhere to get authentic schnitzel, spaetzle and red cabbage -- delicious! The service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We'll be back :)

My husband and I went for dinner on a recommendation. We started with the crabcakes - they were ok. A lot of filler, not a lot of crab. I ordered the schnitzel with spaetzle and red cabbage. I found the portions to be a bit small - if I didn't have the appetizer, I would have left there still hungry.... More

On December 19 our company decided to have dinner out of town and chose the Matterhorn mainly because of the menu and reviews on trip advisor. We had a variety of appetizers and entree's, and those that still had room had dessert. I have confirmed our party of 10 were very satisfied with both the food and service we had... More

My husband and I went for lunch. We had good service and the food was quite tasty. Good value for the money. There was a nice selection to choose from and a pleasant atmosphere.

We got off the highway, didn't know the area and took a chance on this restaurant. I t was empty but it was a Tuesday night. The waitress joked that she would "try to squeeze us in". I ordered the pork snitzel with mushrooms and cheese and my dining partner ordered crab cakes and cod. The meals came out quickly,... More

We never tried the Matterhorn before these new owners took over & are sorry we didn't so we could compare. However, we are so happy we finally tried this restaurant. The atmosphere is cozy & pleasant. The service was very good even though there were 2 large parties going on. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The food was delicious and... More

Never mind the food chains - give this restaurant a try! The service was great and the food quality was excellent - in terms of taste and portion size. Authenticity is the trick and the chef and new owners have mastered it well. Bring your appetites and enjoy this Swiss culinary experience!

I was excited to know the Matterhorn had reopened under new management so couldn't wait to try it. Oh dear, our lunch was disappointing.. We waited 15 minutes before anyone came to take our order (and there was no one in the restaurant) My julienne salad had, if I was lucky, 1 slice of paper thin, processed ham and there... More

The Matterhorn hasn't changed much at all! The new owners even had the last owner in for a few weeks to help make sure everything stayed the same. So happy to still get the Schnitzel & Spatzli I got before! And it looks like they're open now Sundays too! Good to see some things stay the same. :)
