Matthews is a bustling, well decorated venue with a very efficient pleasant staff.It was a Friday night and we knew by the parking lot the place was already filling up. We order a bottle of Chateau St Jean to toast the events.After... More

Matthew's is a simple, good restaurant . . . almost a "tavern-y" feel. Not a very extensive menu. Not a place for foodies. But good, fun time.

The food was good but not excellent. They had some gluten free options but not as many as I would have liked.

Today's offering included the 'box' that contained a delicious minestrone soup, a mixed salad with a flavorful house dressing, mashed potatoes, and a tasty crab cake. Two pieces of dessert were included; a chocolate cake and a rich chocolate... More

The appertizers were fine, but the kitchen forgot my rice. When we finally got the attention of the waiter it took a long time to get my rice. And, it was such a small dish when it finally came. The salmon was not hot enough, just room temperature.

Matthews generally gets good reviews for its food and it is a nice place to eat in the Baltimore area if you stop there as a couple or small family. Unfortunately, the place falls apart if you try to bring a group of five or more, especially on a restaurant off day. We brought a group of six on December... More

We went here the week before Christmas with my 90+ year old aunt.. We parked in the handicapped section and had to walk halfway around the building to "find" the handicapped entrance. The whole restaurant was empty but we were told without a reservation we would have to eat in the bar. So we did as my aunt was tired... More

Omg. Just found this restaurant. Packed but walked right in and they found us a seat. Everything was delicious and the service was impeccable. We wanted to try everything on the menu and will definitely be back! 10 stars
