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.

“By far the "BEST" in Hunterdon County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Expensive, but well worth the price. BYOB keeps the price down though. Even if they had a full bar, I wouldn't hesitate. It's a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very helpful and is always checking to make sure you're happy and satisfied. Resevations in advance is a must.

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Great service, great food. We were in a party of 4 and tried the steak & seafood selections. Well presented good tasting food. As it is a BYOB it keeps things reasonable. The same meal at Char, Bridgewater would cost double and taste half as good!

Thanks for a lovely evening in your restaurant. We will be returning!

“Matt's Red Rooster - our go to in Flemington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Matt's is consistently good. Great seasonal appetizers - we sometimes times make a meal of them. Atmosphere is quaint, in a renovated period house. Service is always excellent. Main courses are fresh, and well prepared. The steak special (dry aged) is usually very good, but have had it a couple of times where the cut of meat was less tender than expected.

“Excellent quality and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We've been dining at Matt's for 8 years and have enjoyed every visit better then the last! The menu is always excellent with great ingredients from local sources which is always a plus. As for the service, Chris is a great asset to the establishment, his knowledge of the dishes as well as attentiveness is superior, we have asked for his section each and every time!

Good luck, you won't be disappointed.

“Enjoy greatest food in Flemington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

interesting food and menu; definitely fresh ingredients

some complain on NYC prices, but he portions are ample and food is always far above average; this is for to 'fit for foodies' that don't mind spending a few bucks for a good meal

last meal was sous vide sirloin w/truffles that was amazing!
