Description: Matt’s Red Rooster Grill is a contemporary American bistro paying homage to a wood fired grill that “brings out the best flavors” of traditional American cuisine, reinvented creatively. A CIA (Hyde Park) graduate, Chef Matt McPherson stays true to his local roots integrating the finest seasonal ingredients, sourced from local family farms & day boat fisherman into his unique dishes. The restored Victorian home provides a relaxed elegant atmosphere to catch up with friends, celebrate special occasions, enjoy a romantic dinner, or impress an important client. As Matt’s creations pamper your taste buds, the staff indulges you with rock star service, the perfect remedy for a long day or week. With two floors, downstairs feeds off the warmth & energy of a bustling open kitchen. Four seats at the Chef's counter let you feel the heat, as you watch Matt & his team from a perch over the grill. Upstairs is away from the bustle while the porch provides relaxed & refreshing outdoor dining.

We went to Matt's Saturday night for an 8:15 reservation. We were seated within 5 minutes upstairs which is much nicer that the tables for 2 down stairs. Food was very good with a nice selection with the specials. Everything was very good including desert. I would recommend this to anyone but it is expensive.

Historic house converted into a wonderful restaurant. The food was excellent. The service was very good. As we had to wait ( for lingering customers to leave), the chef/owner/manager (?) and staff were VERY apologetic - we were presented with complimentary appetizers and dessert. While it was a bit noisy, our table in the corner allowed for conversation. If you... More

From the moment you enter Matt's Red Rooster, everything is done right. The hostess is gracious, the decor is classy and cozy, and the servers make you feel so special, especially our favorite server, Melissa. But the food is always the star! Last evening my husband had the Alaskan King Crab Legs and stated that they were the best he... More

Matt's is the absolute best place to eat in Hunterdon County. The quality of the food is consistently fresh and delicious. The restaurant is small and casual and they do not rush you in or out. Selection is small, although very well thought out and there is something for everyone. Make sure to reserve in advance and it's byob. For... More

Every single thing on the menu is delicious. We went in for New Year Eve dinner and we're lucky enough to have our favorite server Chris. He always helps me pick out my meal if I am undecided. Last night we got, the tuna tartar app. So so good and fresh and just delish ! My husband got the mushroom... More

We paid our third visit to the RR and As always found the menu and the specials to be their own take on some usual dishes and some that are well beyond the run of the mill staples on most menus. For instance,the shorts ribs (amazing after a taste from a companion) are made with Coca Cola which imparts a... More

Finally made it here after hearing tons of great things about the food. We had a work holiday party on a Saturday night with reservations for the private room at 8pm. However, we were made to wait in the TINY entry for 25 minutes while they got the room ready - and we didn't see any large group leave so... More

Everything we ate was absolutely amazing -- (absolutely go for the grilled romaine salad) - the service was impeccable. The ambiance was warm and elegant - great for a special occasion.

Perfectly grilled steakes/chops/ribs/fish...etc; and you must try the grilled romaine salad--awesome!!! Very cozy atmosphere. My husband and I had our wedding party here because of the food but also the location from the Flemington courthouse. This has been our favorite grill house close to home, but worth the drive from anywhere!!!
