We shared the lobster pot pie and the grilled romaine for appetizers (our favorite). I had the scallops special and he enjoyed the rack of lamb. We shared desserts - pear tart and the cheesecake. We really enjoyed our... More

Entrees are unique and exquisite. Steak, fish, soft shelled crabs, grilled Romaine all done on open wood fire. Everything cooked to perfection on all of... More

We went there for an anniversary dinner. Not as romantic as we expected, but that was no issue in the end... the food was amazingly good, came reasonably quickly given the place was packed, and our waiter was attentive and friendly without being annoying.

Earlier this week I received a reccomendation for Matt's from a Camber of Commerce contact. I was pleasantly surprised to see the lovely dinning room and meet a few welcoming staffers at Matt's. The food was excellent! The soup trio was a real treat...the mushroom was fabulous, the squash bisque and tomatoe were not far behind. Our waiter was excellent... More

...and it is BYOB! Highly recommended The ravioli on the winter menu are my favorite by far! Have gone there with teenage kids or couples. Can be a bit noisy when busy.

I haven't heard a bad thing about this place. Maybe that it was a little too pricey but regarding the food, nothing but good. I ordered the filet with bleu cheese and bacon on top and it was mouth watering.

Located on a quiet side street in an old converted house, the restaurant offers both inside and outside dining. The food was delicious, the ambiance is nice and the staff is friendly and attentive. If you sit in the main dining room you can watch the action at the grill. There is more seating upstairs and well as a small... More

Signature salad and scallops were very nice; my wife enjoyed the stuffed rainbow trout. Bread ( a critical part of he meal )was first class. Service was very attentive in this BYOB. Only complaint on a insufferably hot evening was the upstairs dinner room was too warm reaching an uncomfortable state; request for cooler temps not successful.

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.
