Great Lunch!

A little house that has a nice atmosphere. Service was great, loved that a glass of wine is just filled to the brim -- no questions asked! Burgers were yummy with a salad as they don't offer fries at this location, due to not having a deep fryer, but it doesn't matter the food and healthy sides... read more

Sandy and Jennifer are the owners (since 1996 if I recall the story on the menu correctly). My wife is Celiac and when I asked for options at the front desk of where we were staying, the front desk agent sold us when she said "Nothing they make comes out of a box, they know all their ingredients." Ate dinner... More

We really liked the feeling of the Matterson House and it's history. The burger was good as was the breakfast. We would definitely return when we go back to Ucluelet.

Recommended for lunch. Fantastic Manhattan clam chowder and fresh bread. Small venue but pretty and cozy inside.

The dining room seems to be in someone's private home. Very appealing and welcoming, nicely decorated and appointed. Too bad the food was not as impressive. For dinner and for the money... the portions are kind of tiny and either over or under cooked.

Cozy little house with great home cooked breakfasts. We come here every morning when we're in town for a hearty breakfast before we venture out for the day. The owner is delightful, we met the other "grumpy" waitress on our last visit to ukee and we'd rather not see her again but she wasn't a deal breaker. The food is... More

We enjoyed supper at Matterson House our last night in Ucluelet BC. We wanted to experience the local seafood and it was fabulous. Clams, oysters, shrimp and scallops were fabulous. The waitress assisted us on our choices and was very helpful. Wow all that food for that price! Thanks again for the ocean lesson ladies and the Ucluelet Aquarium was... More
