“Nice surprise, great food and inventive menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

Went to this restaurant several times at the suggestion of friends. Looks like an old upstate bar from the entrance and I was hesitant. Went thru to the back room restaurant which was transformed and updated with a retro modern french flair. Inventive multicultural menu with specials such as mulligatawny soup which was delicious, beet salad with walnuts and goat cheese, miso glazed salmon. They also have the usual burgers, sandwiches and breakfast. Service was relaxed but attentive, nice friendly staff, clean bathrooms and a pleasure to visit. Nice desk outside with a stream running along the back of the property.

What a pleasant suprise this place was. The lunch specials were wonderful, soups outstanding and the homemade Ceaser dressing so good they should bottle it....we were very happy with the service and the bar drinks as well.
Hope to go many more times.

“Excellent food in Upstate NY near PA border”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

This restaurant is in Calicoon, not Calicoon Center, the name of another town.It's close to Damascus,PA and it is located in the heart of hunting and fishing and antiqiung country. The food is divine and classy and not to be had for miles. Try to eat at a table outdoors(i the summer) The service is prompt. The bar is very popular with locals. Dominique (who tends bar) and Mathew (who cooks) are te co-owners, ex-NYC folk and
Cornell grads. Enjoy!

“Best food and drinks for many miles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

I have been to Matthews many times and have never been disappointed. The food is diverse and cooked to perfection. The drink selection is great, the staff friendly and helpful and when they have live entertainment, that is great too. I drive about an hour each way to dine there and would drive farther if I had to.
