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 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

Matt's Red Rooster is just awesome. His food is always consistently good. The ambiance is lovely. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for either a romantic night out or a fun night with friends.

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!!!

The food is well prepared, but over priced. The cost for two people is about $100. Nothing terribly memorable.

I live in the area and everyone had been telling me that this place was amazing. So I took my boyfriend and his grandmother here. The food was not bad but it was not great. I was disappointed by the expectations that everyone has given me. There are other restaurants that are much much better in the area.

OK so Flemington poshies will like this byob sure, but it remains overrated and really is average as far as restaurants of its type are concerned (pricey & slightly dismissive): Mainly because of some staff that exudes a lackadaisical unprofessional disinterest whenever we have gone there (too unseasoned for the fare). Food is good... some plates are really good (stuffed... More
