Arrive and the valet informs us they are no longer on duty, it's 7pm. With reservations, we still had to wait 15 minutes. Then we are seated and after waiting another 10 minutes, s server appears and announces that the kitchen is running slow and would we like drinks. This place is full and I'm eager to try the food....

Mattisons food is very good quality whether you eat at 41, in the downtown location, at Bobby Jones Golf Course or the Van Wezel performing arts center. Try it, you'll not be disappointed

We stopped in for a couple drinks and apps. We were treated to friendly service, happy hour food specials that were delicious and some great music. Wonderful time and a good value. This is a great spot.

We visited for dinner with relatives. One of the party is coeliac and when we asked if there was an alternative to the bread basket for him, the server whipped up a batch of corn chips and salsa. We were really impressed as the standard response is an apologetic shrug. The food was excellent and we'll definitely be back.

We've been there twice now and look forward to the next time. We always request the same table as it is closest to the door so my husband doesn't have to walk so far. Also the stools in the bar area are a little high so a booth or a table works better for us. As for the food, what... More

I normally love the food at Mattison's and go there often. I made reservations back in October to have our Thanksgiving dinner there, party of four. When we arrived we were told they were running 30 min late. We were told that customers had paid their bill but were not leaving. They didn't seem to try and solve the issue.... More

Weekly I go with some lady friends and enjoy the ambiance, great $5.00 apps and half price wines, all while listening to the piano player. The apps I've tried are the artichokes Esther, shrimp Rangoon and crab cake. They are delicious. There are others but those are my fav so if you want to spend a few hours eating, drinking... More

We received a gift card for our Anniversary and went about 5:45 on Saturday night . Very nice place, not too loud, not too quiet. Nice looking bar and "Tapas" area. Our booth was comfortable and the service was just right. My wife and I had Salmon, Prime Rib and wedge salad (combined, not each). My Prime rib was done... More
