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.

Decent food casual dining

I've been there twice recently and each time it has been consistent. The service is very good and the food is about what you would expect for a local pub. Some items are very good and some are average. The down side is, if you sit bar side it can get quite loud. My last visit with friends there... read more

Staying at local motel, so drove by every evening and decided to give it a try at around 4:30. Pleasant welcome with the assurance would enjoy the experience. Chose the dining room area with plenty of TV's and only a few other diners. Then we waited and waited for service and our drinks. Ordered the special of the day,which was... More

The building has been around forever, so you still think of the places that came before this place, so everytime I come and get quality food and drink, I'm always surprised. They have menu prices that are equal to the quality of food. I hate paying more for something that it was worth, but this place is not that. Even... More

Great variety on the menu, both for beverages and food items. The mac and cheese options are endless. Ample seating area is good for groups. Wait staff weren't too keen on a big group coming without a reservation despite a mostly empty dining area, but seemed fine once we were all assemblied.

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

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.

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
