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.

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

I have frequented Matt's since its opening some years back and I have never had a bad meal, or bad service for that matter. I tend to order vegetarian meals at restaurants but at Matt's, I just have to have the filet (and grilled romaine salad). The combination of the woods used for grilling impart a flavor I just can't... More

A local favorite! Food, service, atmosphere is fantastic! Matt's is a BYOB too which we like (but they also carry wonderful local wines as well). I would not bring anyone under 12 to dine here - definitely no one under 16 on a Friday/Saturday night.

High Cuisine! High quality food prepared to perfection. Small and filled to capacity every night so make reservations. Matt takes pride in his offerings and it shows. Nice place to go for a special celebration. Excellent knowledgeable servers. Very pricey but worth the expense.

First time visit here and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. We sat outside on the porch which was great for what was probably the last warm evening of the summer. You definitely need to book early for tables inside at prime time. Food was cooked well and nicely presented with good service from all... More
