Description: Matt’s Red Rooster Grill is a contemporary American bistro paying homage...
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.

Beautiful ambiance and delicious food with friendly service

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.

Party of 7 celebrating our son's 23rd birthday. We were served upstairs in a very nice setting. Food was as expected and nothing to complain about. Would go back for another occasion.

We had been going to this restaurant since 1997. Tonight, they dropped the ball. Ordered, stripped bass with lobster sauce, the sea bass was so tasteless, I put salt twice, butter ( for the bread), twice; squeezed three slices of lemon. Very very disappointing. My husband ordered the cheese plate, I took a slice of some kind of brown cheese... More

Consistently well prepared food and quiet, attentive service. The wood grilled flavors make your mouth water when you smell it in the parking lot. Grilled romaine salad is a must every time. The short rib ravioli was AMAZING. Husband's steak was cooked perfectly and my striped bass was outstanding. The peanut butter bomb was heaven. We will be back again... More

Matt's Red Rooster Grill is a delightful discovery. It's particularly welcome because the Hunterdon County food scene is so dreary. There's a cheerful energy about the place - in part because of the wood-fired grill and the open kitchen. Matt has real talent and real taste. His menu is well-conceived and well-executed. It's also BYOB -- a major plus. This... More

We found a jewel across the street from the original Flemington Furs. They have a professional staff, two quaint rooms and a porch for ambience. The menu covers everything from New York cuts,through Salmon and Halibut to cold water lobster tails. I understand their bread pudding will top the evening. ( My diet wouldn't permit). It is only fifteen minutes... More

We went there for a Friday evening dinner and the specials were so good 3 of 4 people at our table ended up having the steak and one the fish special. The pork belly and the polenta appetizers were out of this world and the entrees were great too. The meat was cooked perfectly and it was very flavorful. Service... More

Our table of four had an incredible experience last weekend at Matt's. The service itself was amazing. Our waiter had such a great personality, made us laugh and was very well versed in the food offerings. We all had different entrees which included the lobsters tails, pork tenderloin, steak and salmon and grilled romaine for appetizer - YUM! Everything was... More

Matt's has always been one of our favorite destinations for dinner. My husband and I had another great meal here recently. We shared the lobster pot pie (comfort food at it's best!) and the signature grilled romaine for appetizers. I had the scallops special and he enjoyed the rack of lamb. We shared desserts - pear tart and the cheesecake.... More

This was a decent place in Flemington but recently has started to go down. You can see the absence of "hands on" from management. May be they are distracted on other projects
