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.

“Excellent cuisine and attentive wait staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I've been going to Matt's Red Rooster Grill since they opened their doors and I have yet to be disappointed in the food or service! The at-home atmosphere and attentive wait staff add to the great menu options. I always get the Grilled Romaine salad to start but always try something new for my entree. I've never been let down.

“Excellent food; Warm and comfortable surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Very good food. Unfortunately, everybody at the table ordered the same things, so I didn't get to sample a broad selection. I know the steaks are good...

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

The food here is simply amazing. I have eaten there at least 10 times. The service is always excellent and the food is interesting and very fresh. They obviously put time and thought into the menu. They do not have a kids menu and it is not a place for kids per se. But I have taken my 11 year old there and he loves the salmon dishes and desserts. He is amazed that the chef can make vegetables taste so good - and they really do. It is a wonderful place for upscale food with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Perfect place for a celebration, romantic night out or to take anyone who will appreciate the amazing food. BYOB.

“Matt's Red Rooster”

Matt's Red Rooster has terrific service, a nice atmosphere and the food is very good. Steaks are great and done the way you choose and the scallops are excellent as well.

“Lovely evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We attended a party in the upstairs dining area. Appetizers were a bit bland (crab cakes and pulled pork nachos), but the dinner was wonderful. My husband and I both had filet mignon served with mashed potatoes and carrots. The steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Decor is rustic chic. We will be going back to check out the downstairs dining room which is open to the kitchen so you can see food being prepared. Restaurant is BYOB and there is ample parking.
