Our property boasts a comfort zone with a unique, casual dining experience, appropriate for all ages, but most importantly, simply delicious mac and cheese. Matildas & Mad Macs will be offering a mouthwatering selection of creamy and browned to perfection mac and cheese. The mac is on center stage, but not to be missed is the decadent hand-formed burgers, plump juicy wings and the homemade soups. Menu highlights include the pizza mac, with fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic, and fresh basil… Yum! The lobster mac, with tender chunks of fresh lobster, cognac, tarragon and mascarpone cheese… Ridiculous! The portobello mac, with roasted portobello, goat cheese, mozzarella and a touch of truffle oil… Yes this really happens... The signature burger, hand formed, fire grilled, and on a baked fresh bun. Side selections include generous portions of seasoned fries paired with our white cheddar cheese sauce. Perfection…. For desserts, how about a red-velvet cake with cream cheese frosting; and for adults, may we suggest a drunken milkshake. Sorry kids 21 and older only.Togo is Unique at Matildas & Mad Macs. Ready to-go hot or cold mad-macs is the perfect way to fill your belly at your home or office. Microwavable and environmentally safe prepared dishes heat in seconds and are fun for the whole family. Don’t order pizza, order pizza mac!!! Available in regular, wheat and whole grain macaroni.Once you're properly fueled with some of our signature dishes, there's plenty of entertainment to keep the fun going, from karaoke on Mondays and Saturdays, to Texas hold'em poker on Wednesdays and trivia on Thursdays. We also provide live entertainment every Friday night! Let the fun begin…

Decent pub food

Not a bad place to go with decent food. They have a unique twist on macaroni and cheese, I've had a couple and they were okay. Not a bad place to go in a pinch.

Stopped in on a Saturday when all restaurants on main street were mobbed. We weren't disappointed! Fast, friendly service in a fun sports bar type atmosphere. Had the appetizer sampler. Everything on it was very good. All members of our party had burgers. Those were very good as well. Fresh burger buns and good fries. Will go back again when... More

With a name like Mad Macs, you'd expect macaroni to be a major part of the menu. Not only is it a major part, but it's a superb part! If you like Mac and Cheese, you have to try this place. The Lobster Mac is full of large bites of lobster that will make you want to go back for... More

We go to this local eatery frequently for lunch as it is close by. The food is outstanding! Best mac n'cheese imaginable. Several different combos of this delectable dish are offered - we love the buffalo mac n'cheese. Hamburgers are also excellent. The chicken salad sandwich is made with roasted red peppers and is the best I have ever tasted... More

Always wondered how Mad Matildas would be for dinner. Now I know the answer. The server was awful. She answered more times with No and disappeared quite a bit. Tell me what restaurant won't let you add Crab Fries to your dinner rather than roasted potatoes. Even charge extra but to just say NO we cannot do that. And then... More
