The french cheese platter was the perfect dessert for me, so I gave the dessert trio to my hubby. He enjoyed the reconstructed pot roast, which is the probably the best... More

This moderately priced restaurant is my favorite spot to celebrate anything. The food is always good, the atmosphere pleasant and the service excellent. Chef Mattison is also to be commended for the support he offers non-profit organizations in our community.

We stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was outrageously delicious! Staff were very pleasant. Chef Paul even came out & spoke with us. We even splurged on dessert & it was heaven. Perfect spot & I highly recommend!!

Went to Mattison's for my daughter's 10th birthday. The staff made her feel so good. Made a menu with her name on it and stopped by to wish her a happy birthday. The filet and house salad were fantastic. I tried the sirloin, it was good but stick with the filet. Happy hour is 5-7--definitely try to make it during... More
