We decided to try Matthew's on Main in Callicoon while staying at the Villa Roma Resort just about 10 minutes away. The outside is pretty non-descript, but once we stepped inside, we were impressed by the vintage art and modern decor. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who showed us to an indoor table, although outside deck seating was an option. For a Saturday night, I was surprised that there were only three or four other tables occupied. The menu offered a nice, diverse selection. We had a couple of salads, a burger, and the ribs. Our servers were very attentive as was the hostess who checked on us multiple times asking if we needed anything else. The salads were average, as was the burger. The ribs were very good and were served with a nice piece of corn bread. The desserts were home made, and absolutely delicious. We had a coconut cake with chocolate frosting and an orange cake, which was a family recipe of the owner's grandma. Both were fresh and very good.
Overall, we were happy with the experience at Matthew's. It was obvious that the staff cared about the diners' experience. The food was better than expected, and the desserts were worth a second trip. There are not that many restaurant choices in the area, and this was one we were happy with and would return to next year.

The service was good, as was the food. The chef and his wife were very personable. The outdoor deck, where we sat could have been cleaned better.

We have had lunch and dinner there a couple of times. Lunch was simply awful, dinner was just okay. Atmosphere is good both indoors as well as outdoors. Service was good and friendly.
Bu the food - oh my, it is not for gourmet eaters.
The lunch we had there was typical low quality diner food. Dinner was a notch above but also nothing to write home about.
In all, a very mediocre place as it concerns food, but their outdoor terrace is very nice and if you can take less than good food - my suggestion would be to stick to ordinary 'diner foods' such as hamburger etc but stay away from anything that sound more fancy - than you could almost have a good time.

Good food, with many choices from burgers to entrees. The hamburger was delicious and the homemade ice cream was amazing! Service was good. We had lunch there one day and dinner another; each time good food, but not inexpensive. The only criticism would be that the outside deck area could use some new furniture and the area outside needs to be cleaned up.

My sister just bought a house in Callicoon, so my family arrived for the week for housewarming. I have been there twice so far and each time the food has been excellent. I am a vegan and the chef has prepared a special plate for me each time. Both times were very tasty grilled veggie dishes with a side grain.

The dishes the others ate looked quite good too. It is not the typical greasy bar food. The things ordered were focused on health consciousness without slacking on flavor. The appetizer salad was also excellent.

Additionally, they have a decent wine list, a nice outdoor patio area, and the staff was attentive.
