“Renovated home provides quality food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

A few steps from Norwood Restaurant this charming home provides a warm dining experience and good quality food for couples, families and small groups of friends. Very much enjoyed our lunch last week during a rain downpour outside.

“Best breakfast place in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

It's no wonder the locals all eat at Matterson's -- the food is great, big portions, and reasonable prices.

Good fast service, inexpensive and great food. Had the lunch special of soup and sandwich and it was very good. Restaurant was full all of lunch hour. Lots of local regulars.

“Matterson House”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Great place for service and, if the weather permits, to sit outside on the decking where you will find a charming garden with some interesting trees and shrubs. It is very popular with the locals, and booking would be adviseable. However, the tendency here seems to be to fill the plate with food rather than make the dish look attractive. The cauliflower and the fish were covered in a lemon/dill sauce which filled the plate and my stomach.

“Reservations recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We were late for dinner and the restaurant was full (we didn't make reservations) so we were asked to come back 15 minutes later. So we had to wait in our car for 15 minutes which isn't exactly comfy but ok - that's why people have to make reservations :)
Food was very good and food and wine prices are fair.
