I recently invited a couple of friends to lunch at Matthews 1600. The box lunch was great and a fantastic value. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is due to the wait staff that took an inordinate amount of time to bring the food. Unfortunately, one of the guys had a meeting and had to truly... More

Whenever a friend comes to visit and I just want to spend some time with them this is the place. It is average per se, but its nice, pleasant, and comfortable. Whether out for some beers and burgers, or some casual american dining, you can depend on getting a nice meal in a comfortable atmosphere, as well as check out... More

Stopped by Matthews with some friends after work for drinks and desserts/appetizers. We were scouting it out as a possible future neighborhood ladies' dinner out. The moment we walked in, the hostess acted annoyed that there were customers (it was a very slow night). The waitress was rude when we stated that we didn't need dinner menus. She directed us...

Excellent meal, friendly waitress (Kelsey) and very good service. The portions were very good and the birthday cake was perfect. I would recommend Matthew's 1600.

My husband and I went to Matthew's on New Years Eve. They had a 'special' menu. He had the NY Strip Steak and I had Surf and Turf. Both the Filet and Strip Steak were like butter. Excellent. Waitress was attentive just the right amount. Had a lovely time. Sat at a booth in the bar area.

This restaurant looks nice and feels quite homey with pick a tablecloth and place settings and lots of wood in the interior. The menu has pretty standard items like sandwiches, burger, some steaks and crab cakes. I ordered chicken Parmesan, only to be told they didn't serve that anymore. The waiter dropped a glass of water on one of my... More

We have dined for lunch a number of times at Matthew's 1600 when in the Catonsville area. Each time we have enjoyed the lunch time specials that include a delicious quiche dish or an over stuffed sandwich (plus other choices from soups to main dinners). Today the special sandwich was roasted beef, zesty dressing, onion ring and bacon that came... More

I met some folks on a Thursday night for dinner. We were in the dining room around the bar in the middle. Dinner conversation was done by screaming at each other across the table. It was so loud it was not pleasant. Food was ok. A bit over priced. Don't go out of your way. But if you want a... More
