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.

A delightful discovery

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... read 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

We were four of us for dinner and we came to the same conclusion....the food were not created on the premises but just unpacked from the pre assembled by Sysco.....may be we were wrong but that was our impression.

When a restaurant has 3 - 4 Star Pricing, food quality must rise accordingly. As a former restaurant critic, one of the factors in determining the final star rating of a restaurant is the value quotient. Three Star Pricing and Two Star Food? Not good. I had high expectations for Matt's Red Rooster Grill as we chose this establishment for... More

Food Was Delicious, we love the location in the center of Historic Flemington. After dinner we took a walk down Main St. It is a little pricey so for us it is only for special occasions.

It was very disappointing. The food was just mediocre, expected better food for the prices they charge. Ambience was nice, staff was good.
