First Visit Under New Ownership

Re-opened May 2014 under new ownership. This is our 1st visit since. Still a nice atmosphere, cozy setting. The new owner's have added some new menu items, we'll have to sample on return visits (which we do plan to make). Our server Kayla was very friendly, attentive & knowledgable about the... read more

We are visiting the Matterhorn regularly. The service always excellent and the server (older lady) even helped me to put my coat on when we were living. Not so many places doing that these days! The food were better than ever! We are regulars just because the quality is always the same! We love the specials! Thank You! B&K

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

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
