Description: 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…

Not many beers on tap. We went during happy hour where burgers were half off so it was a great price. Burgers looked small but had a ton of meat and was filling. Either than that not many people early in the day but the burgers took a long time to come out

Okay sports bar type place. Gluen free mac & cheese was prety tasty. A pork BBQ sandwich was kinda small, and the fries were cold. The BBQ was smoky and decent. Lots of variety on the menu, and that may explain the diverse reviews. Service was slow early on a Saturday afternoon with almost no one in the place. Lots... More

Matildas has changed from being an Australian restaurant to being a non-descript eating place that serves pub style food and macaroni and cheese. Despite the limited menu i ordered the most expensive single entree: steak and shrimp. It was ordered medium and came out super rare even blue in places . I was so turned off i set the food... More

I walked here from my hotel. The greeting was less than enthusiastic. I was seated in an empty part of the restaurant, the table was still sticky. The food arrived but the Crab Cakes tasted a bit funny. I got sick later in the evening from the food. I do not recommend this restaurant although I've heard the Mac and... More

Let me start off with the good: it's the Mac and Cheese. When it comes to that, the chef in the kitchen knows what the heck he or she is doing. I go there cause the Mac is great, the rest of the food is average to good. It's not horribly expensive. On Mondays the mac is HALF OFF! Good... More

One word...Disgusted! My family and I have been to Mad Mac's on several occasions since moving to DE about a year ago. We have always liked the food, friendly staff, and fun atmosphere. We usually sit on the tavern side as my teenage daughters are sports fans and can watch events on the TV's. Well, NEVER AGAIN. I have never... More

Went to dinner on Sept. 8, 2013. My family had a really back experience. I was a little put-off as to the condition of the restaurant, it looked a little run down. We had a living social coupon and decided to try the place out. The worst part of our experience was after we had ordered our food. All of... More

Went to lunch on Sept. 1, 2013. My family has been to this restaurant several times in the past and were always very happy. Not today. We asked to sit on the restaurant side and were told that it wasn't open, we had to sit on the bar side. There were a group of men being abnormally loud at the... More
