Matt the Miller's Tavern - Carmel
Book your next event with us
I was very dissapointed. We came here for the first time last week. My fiance and I are vegan which we have been for 2 years, so finding food that we can eat at restaurants can be difficult. After viewing your online menu and seeing you have a beyond burger(vegan), I immediately made reservations. Upon arriving, the service was good. But once we started asking questions about the food, if the bread had milk in it, if the sauce on the beyond burger was vegan, the server and manager were NOT accommodating. I saw the server walk into the kitchen laughing, almost making fun of us for asking these questions. The manager did check the bread for dairy products, but was not very polite. After telling the server we will just finish our beer and leave, since there were not anymore food options, his misdemeanor changed completely as if we were wasting his time. It was just frustrating because I do not understand why you would have a beyond burger (vegan) but not have non-dairy bread options for vegans. I hope in the future I will be able to have a better experience here as I was very excited to try this restaurant out last week. I hope this feedback was helpful.
It was a busy night with a concert at the Palladium, but you’d think by now they’d know what to expect and staff accordingly? Our server came by only three times; once to take our order, next to bring our drinks (not our food) and then finally our bill— after being asked to. Not once did he check in on us during our meal, or look to fill water glasses. Food was okay, but wasn’t complete. All in all...meh?
3rd time here and each time gets more delicious.. vet accommodating to our group of 11. Quick and friendly service
Great service and great food! Our server was the best. Always checking with us while we waited fir friends
Second time here.
This time for brunch and it was wonderful.
Chef had great different items
Omelette chef was wonderful.
Would come back again
Loved our meal and great service! Our waitress was great to talk with and made us feel comfortable. We will definitely be back!
Average food, in an average bar, with average service. I was surprised at the number of recommendations this establishment received. Either the dining populace in Carmel wouldn't know good food if it bit them, or Matt the Miller's has a "reality-distortion field" that activates when you walk in. My better half and I ordered a "Make-your-own-combo"; soups were beer cheese, and side-salads. Admittedly, the beer cheese had TWO good moments; served warm, but not boiling, cheesy and smooth, but not pasty. Salad greens hadn't been adequately washed so there was a bit of "crunch" from the dirt, sand...? Once the server discovered we weren't there to deplete the bar, his attitude changed; and not for the better. Coffee was food service, as were the mini-desserts. Avoid this place; there are better fast-food options with less pretentiousness.
We may have ordered but the shrimp and grits just wasn't very good. Even with advance reservations we were stuck in the back corner of the noisy bar behind column. Not a very good experience.
A great variety of food, awesome atmosphere and great service. We were there for a girls night out!
Great restaurant. I only wish they had a more extensive menu. I find myself getting the same dish over and over. Need baby back ribs, chicken parmigiana, lasagna, meat loaf, etc.
Noisy bar with rude people. Service average. Messed up my order.
Always go here on our way to the theater. We can have a meal and drinks, and always get out on time for the show.
The service was outstanding, food was fabulous, the atmosphere was lovely. Would go again in a heartbeat.
We enjoyed the food; eating outside was a plus; the waiter was completely devoid of personality. He was strictly yes and no and didn't offer any suggestions (would you like some bread while you wait?). Wasn't BAD. Just no help. Nice to have valet parking.
Always great when I come here! The chicken and the egg is my favorite sandwich. Service was great and very prompt. Would definitely recommend.
Weren't ready to open brunch buffet yet...some food was cold. Has tons of opportunity though. Server was fantastic. Bloody Mary bar...wow! Mimosa bar....double wow!!
Enjoyed the fish and chips. Service was not as good as my first visit. We will try this spot again in the future.
Great food for the value. Easy walk to the Palladium for a show after dinner!
First time at Matt's and loved it! Jeremiah was our server and did a fantastic job especially since we had a lot of special requests.
Moscow Mules were very good (Monday $5 special) but small. I had a Matt's Salad that was just ok --- really not much to it (large size with only a few dried apricots and spiced walnuts ) and I had to even ask for more dressing. The salmon flatbread that my friend had was good. The chocolate cake was very good (big enough to split 3 ways) but was pricey at $12. Excellent coffee.
Everything was great. Wonderful staff, every person we encountered seemed genuinely happy to provide a fun, exceptional experience. Food equally deserving of praise.
I would give this restaurant another chance. Their burgers are to be very good. I ordered the shrimp and grits which is o e of their specialties. The shrimp was a medium quality and the dish was smothered in a cream sauce thT was way too much.
Food was mediocre. This didn’t live up to all the hype at all. Service was good.
Food was good. Tarter sauce & ketchup didn’t arrive with our fish and fries or the burger and fries. Seemed to be some confusion on who was getting it. We waited a little long for it. Overall good experience and good food.
Food was average, on the bland side. Miller Chips - tasty and different, definitely a large portion. Peppered Burger toppings were good but the burger taste did not come through. My Husband had the Pork Tenderloin that was sent back as some pieces were very rare. (Uncooked center). Staff was happy to assist with the remake but please don’t tell me that it is supposed to be cooked that way. Second plate was cooked right and the pork was tasty however the mashed potatoes didn’t seem to be seasoned at all. Cheesecake and Carrot Cake dessert cups were good, my socks are still on after this meal. I would tell potential first timers that it’s worth a try but no plans for a return visit.
Our fish & chips were very good. Glad we asked for sweet potato fries- they were excellent. Our portions were large & we had enjoyed too many of the pretzel bites to finish our meal.
Our guest found parking right in front. With those few spots taken we found parking difficult.
The food was great, timely, and we had great service. We will definitely be returning and trying new things on the menu.
We had a great time and quite by accident ended up there for 40% off wine bottle nite
We enjoyed Sunday Brunch here with our family. We were all together for our son's wedding. Perfect way to end our special weekend! The food on the buffet was well-presented, fresh and delicious and at a reasonable price.
I definitely won’t be returning even though our server was excellent. They some how over cooked a 9 oz filet even though there was no char on the outside (ordered medium). Got the shrimp scampi steak topper on the side and their version of shrimp scampi is cocktail shrimps heated up in a pink creamy sauce, they were disgusting. The restaurant looked nice on the inside but was beyond loud and required talking extremely loud to hear someone else.
Great find. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. Would definitely come back the next time I am in town
Terrific service during a very busy lunch. Thank you.
Food is always perfect.
We had a great time. We were celebrating a birthday and everything was a hit to our birthday girl.
Food is always good, actually Very good. Drinks sat unfilled throughout our whole main course. Waiter never checked back.
Again when we did not order from the bar, the waiter seemed to lose interest. Been away for poor service before, maybe should just stop going back all together.
Pretzel bites are always special. Never had a menu idea that wasn't very good and consistently friendly and responsive servers.
Really enjoyed the Sunday Brunch at Matt the Miller's. Excellent food, service was on point and outdoor seating was very enjoyable.
We enjoyed the lunch outside, with great service. Beautiful setting. I was a little disappointed with my salad as the greens seemed wilted. I would probably ask for the dressing on the side next time. My companion definitely enjoyed her soup and flatbread.
We had a group of 15. We had 2 servers who took care of us. Our orders were taken soon after arrival. The food arrived quickly and everyone enjoyed their meal. The presentation of the food was very nice and very tasty. Matt the Millers Tavern is a very cool place. I plan on returning in the very near future.
We made reservations for a party of 10. After seeing the table and realizing that the table was in the bar and all the seats were high tops, we requested to be moved to regular chairs to accommodate our 90 yr old grandma. The staff quickly set us up in a room upstairs and helped us get Grandma onto the elevator. We had a great family reunion and our server, Sharon I think, was exceptional.
