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.

Delicious dining - but a bit on the expensive side - so plan for that - BUT GO. Nice atmosphere - great room for parties upstairs. You will NEVER have a bad meal here and you should definitely try the bread pudding for dessert!!

“Very good food but overpriced”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

I heard a lot about the restaurant and was really excited to go. Enjoyed the dinner, however, won't return due to the small portions and above average prices for the area.

“Cute, quaint restaurant but overpriced”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Cute old building in downtown Flemington, nice touch with outside dining on a cozy covered porch. The staff is wonderful- courteous and efficient. Food generally very good but they use too much salt in most offerings and the prices are out of line -too high. We understand a high price for premier items such as lobster tails but, come on, high $20s for a plain chicken!

“Great food and service too!”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We dined recently on a Tuesday evening at Matt's restaurant. We were on business and decided to use Trip Advisor to choose a local restaurant. Matt's menu is very nice with several selections available including meat, chicken and fish. Many appetizers were offered at reasonable prices
Overall our meals were excellent, only to be surpassed by the incredible waiter who served us.
His name escapes me but he has 4 young children, something we all would remember.
5 star dining in a beautiful historic house in the heart of Flemington
I highly recommend that you try Matt's if you can
