Nice Find

My wife and I decided to lunch at Tastebuds, based on a recommendation from an acquaintance. We are so glad we followed his advice. We went there on a Saturday 11/15/2914, around 12:30pm.

My wife and I had the chance to dine with another couple last week after hearing wonderful things about this restaurant. We were not disappointed. I had seafood casserole that was very good--could have used a little more spice. My wife's seafood stew was outstanding. Plenty of seafood and well prepared. Our friends had a chicken dish and tenderloin tips... More

We have come by ourselves and also brought friends. There are 3 specials each lunch and dinner. We've never been dissatisfied with food or service.

This is a small place and sometimes seating is limited but if you can get in you should be well pleased. They do a nice job in delivering a great product to their customers. I believe the menu should accommodate most as well as the casual atmosphere.

My friend and I had visited Tastebuds over two years ago, and I wrote a wonderful review for this restaurant at that time. She and her family experience the Sunday Brunch very often, so it was our turn to go together. I chose the Rib Eye Steak on Toast Tips with two poached eggs. I ordered the steak medium well,...

I tried Tastebuds on a Friday night, I had heard a lot about it. We arrived around 7, no reservations, and we were seated right away. It's small inside and consists of two rooms. The waitress was friendly and helpful, we couldn't see what the specials were, the blackboard was in a weird place and she had to read it... More

Tastebuds is a cute family-run restaurant with great food and outstanding deserts. The atmosphere is casual and the menu is varied and outstanding all around.

We enjoyed a meal at Tastebuds while on vacation in Mattapoise, MA. The restaurant is off the path for vacationers, but on Main Street for locals. The restaurant is very small with a view of the kitchen while dining. Other restaurants in town have a view of the water, but this restaurant was full of locals when we got there.... More

Have loved this little gem for 3 plus years, always consistent; great food, regular and interesting seasonal menu and terrific service. Had an "off night" in March 2014, after an almost 3 great year run. Revisited April and June 2014 and simply terrible........service and food. They seem to have lost their direction and focus. The menu is tired, the service... More
