No matter what meal you're there for, it will be good. Staff is excellent. They know what they're doing and seem to enjoy doing it.

A pleasant venue - an historic house - with very pleasant staff, easily located and convenient. Recommended by my B & B hosts, I enjoyed it well enough once and considered going again.

The restaurant is relatively small and homey, but it's a great place for a very tasty lunch at great value. Their bread is home-made, and the sandwiches are very generously sized. I wasn't the only one who had half of theirs to-go. The seafood chowder was good; very filling. The price was very low for the portion sizes, and you... More

I have been sending the customers from my Company, Castaway Charters here for years and I have never heard anything but good things. Remember to reserve in... More

Most dining establishments that want to be number one give you the recipe when the foodie asks for it. But not this place. "I'll sell it with the restaurant," is the instant reply. And the owner may have a point. Because it's the go to place for chowder with nothing but seafood (forget those potatoes). it's not a very big... More

For a Valentines Day dinner, I wouldn't call it exactly romantic, but it was for a good cause, the service was excellent (and friendly) and the food was hot. Chocolate mousse was particularly delicious

My family had a good lunch here. Location is like eating in someone's home. Not the best for young children. Prices are good for the food you receive. Nice staff

The Matterson House is a restaurant located in a heritage home in Ucluelet. Inside it is warmly decorated. The restaurant does not have many tables as it take place in what I would call the original living room and dining room. In the summer it is very busy as many have discovered the little gem. While you have a wonderful... More

Ucluelet is a small place and restaurants tend to be closed here on Sundays in the off season. Matterson House is an exception and what's more, makes an enjoyable meal in a friendly atmosphere at an affordable price. We had both lunch and dinner here on Sunday and were favorably impressed with both meals. My husband tried the Seafood chowder... More

We always make a special trip to Matterson House when in Ucluelet for their delicious seafood chowder. We've had other entrees which were okay but the chowder is so substantial it's really a meal on its own. Best seafood chowder on the west coast.
