Had dinner with friends on a Weds, when they offer a three course meal for $30, an outstanding value. I started with the fantastic grilled romaine. Will have to get this on every visit. Superb. Followed with a perfectly prepared pork loin with an interesting and very flavorful mustard BBQ sauce. Delicious potatoes and veggies on the side. Dessert was... More

This is my favorite go to restaurant in the area. We have enjoyed many dinners at Matt's and have never been disappointed. As a couple we love to dine along the grill bar. There are just four spots here, but the experience is intimate and exciting at the same time. If a chef and his/her team can prepare food with... More

what a great place. appitezers were excellent, grill avacado and lump cab in lime sauce and fried green tomatoes. dinner was just as good, stuffed pork chop and a fillet were excellent. well cooked, juicy. wow. it was byob, so that saved $$$ for desert. only drawback that they cram you in tight spaces as it is a small house

Although this place gets very crowded, the atmosphere still allows for an intimate dinner. The service and food quality were very good. For appetizers, we ordered the oysters and chicken waffle, which were delicious. I ordered the stuffed pepper entree and that was also very good. I would definitely eat here again.

We are locals and have eaten at Matt's many times. I can't remember that any dish that anyone in our party has had that wasn't outstanding. The wait staff is very experienced and knowledgeable and the service has always been excellent. Upstairs is a little quieter, but it's fun to sit downstairs and watch food being prepared. We has also... More

Matt's Red Rooster is one of the best places to eat around. The ambiance is quiet and can be romantic. Seats at the bar allow you to watch everything being cooked on the wood burning grill. You can always expect something seasonal or rare when visiting. My husband and I nearly got engaged here and we make a point to... More

We had an excellent meal at Matt's. The service was very good as well. The green apple dipping sauce served with hot bread was delicious.My only complaint was the seating. We were seated at a table for two, which was fine, but we were about a foot away from another table for two. Very uncomfortable to be so close and... More

We have NEVER had a bad or even mediocre meal at Matt's. It has always been amazing. The atmosphere is pleasant, and I love to sit in the dining area near the open kitchen grill area. Service is great. Only suggestion I have .... make a reservation one month in advance because they are always booked!!

Ribs fall off the bone after three days of cooking. Totally yummy with great salads to start. A beautiful room but we chose the cool breezes on the porch for a summer Sunday night supper.
