Description: Matties Taphouse and Grill, previously Matties Bar and Grill, is locally owned and has been quenching Elko's thirst and satisfying cravings and hunger since 1993. We serve like home cooked meals, but better since you don't have to cook and clean. We offer healthy options, many burgers, steaks, and appetizers. Our bar is full service and is attached but separate from the bar. In the restaurant, we have a game room which the kids will love! Check out the mural depicting Elko lifestyles in the restaurant, painted by local high school art students. We are ELKO's hometown favorite restaurant and we look forward to serving you! Come as a stranger but leave as a friend!

“Good Food, iffy service”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

This is a nice place, plenty of seating with a Sports Bar located in back. The menu is unique in that is on Newsprint and local stories cover both front and back page, the inside selection is vast and can be for some a bit overwhelming. The portions are huge and if you are of the small-medium appetite you may want to share with a table mate. Food is good, some selection are excellent. Did find anything on the menu that we didn't like. The service however is a different story. Although seated right away, it took quite some time for the waitress to arrive at our table, she took our drink order and then disappeared. No drinks, no food order taken... hmmmm. Finally drinks arrive with an apology, food order is taken, food arrives suprisingly quick, it is good. Then comes the large effort to get our check so that we can pay and be on our way. Where did that waitress go? We have eaten in many restaurants in Elko, food is usually good, service is usually poor. Customer service is not Elko's strong suit.....

“If not for the cigarette smoke, I'd eat here more”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

The food is decent here. A little overpriced, but....it's Elko. The no-smoking laws aren't exactly enforced in this town. While there's no smoking in the restaurant portion of Maddie's, there's an attached bar with no separate entrance and nothing to close it off from the eating area. It's quite unpleasant.

The service is always good and I really like the onion rings (they're beer battered). I just wish they, like all the other businesses in Elko, would get a clue and realize that they're actually hurting the local economy by gouging prices because the mine employees are paid well. This isn't New York or California - the infrastructure isn't here to justify such highway robbery.
