“Quaint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Great for lunch - soup & sandwich etc. Simple menu, but large portions and delicious choices. Very busy, but worth a wait if you can get in.

“Renovated home provides quality food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

A few steps from Norwood Restaurant this charming home provides a warm dining experience and good quality food for couples, families and small groups of friends. Very much enjoyed our lunch last week during a rain downpour outside.

“Best breakfast place in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

It's no wonder the locals all eat at Matterson's -- the food is great, big portions, and reasonable prices.

“Matterson House”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Great place for service and, if the weather permits, to sit outside on the decking where you will find a charming garden with some interesting trees and shrubs. It is very popular with the locals, and booking would be adviseable. However, the tendency here seems to be to fill the plate with food rather than make the dish look attractive. The cauliflower and the fish were covered in a lemon/dill sauce which filled the plate and my stomach.
