Great selection and very good quality

Out of the way location on Rt 144 (Frederick Road), near Rolling Road. Very good food at reasonable prices. Wait staff are friendly and attentive. Friday and Saturday nights are busy.

I ordered a two crab cake dinner and my wife ordered a salad and we both split each others meal. the food... More

My husband and his friends love this place because it is the place they all liked to hang out at during high school and college (we all grew up here in Catonsville). So I've tried every time I've gone - and I've gone so many times over the decades that I've lived in Catonsville - to go with an open... More

I've eaten here for both lunch and dinner several times in the recent past, as well as been to a large party, and also a smaller group function. On the plus side, the people are very nice, including hostesses, managerial staff, wait staff, and bus staff. The food is tasty and the portions are good. The restaurant is clean and... More

We went to Matthews 1600 for a late lunch birthday celebration. We had a party of 5 which automatically involves an 18% gratuity. This may explain the indifferent attitude of the waitress who brought our food to the table hot and fresh from the kitchen and then promptly dissappeared to unkown places, in her mind her duties done it would...

We personally like the atmosphere at Matthew's. Always feel welcomed and warm here. The food is very good. Had their Filet here last month and it was excellent. Cooked perfectly. Nice Bar area with friendly people and staff. All around favorite place of ours.

We actually had our wedding rehearsal dinner here back in January 2015, and it was lovely. Every since then, when we are in the area we make sure to drop on by for a nice dinner. Their Riesling is quite good and they have a very nice menu that also caters towards pescatarians. My husband normally gets the salmon or... More

We regularly dine in Catonsville and finally decided to try Matthew's with 4 friends since it had (mostly) good reviews. Our party of 6 arrived for a 7 pm reservation and we'd already prepared for the mandatory 18% tip for a party over 4 and 2 of the 3 couples brought cash since they won't split up a check and...
