Dinner with friends, reservations made & we asked to sit in the bar. Had the great corner booth & it was perfect for the 5 of us. Our server was very nice, helpful too & was right there to take our drink orders. Food was delicious, I don't think I saw one morsel left on anyone's plate. I had the salmon & the glaze is wonderful! Loved the veggie combo of broccoli & carrots. Coconut rice didn't have too much flavor but it would be tough to complete with the sauce on the salmon. My husband & one of our friends had the filet. Both raved about how tender it was & the mashed potatoes were the perfect compliment to it. Another diner had the fish & chips. She enjoyed it this time. In the past, at times, they have been a bit too greasy. Our last diner had a pasta special with sausage. He loved it.
A lovely evening with friends, delicious food, great service, what's not to love?

Overall I enjoy eating there if I'm in the area to do something else. I would not necessarily go out of my way to dine there, but the food is good for the price for sure. I REALLY loved the calamari and that is no longer on the menu, which is a bummer.

You offer specials but in the fine print it's only for the bar or outdoors. You should not give that menu to your dining room clients. OR, better yet, why differentiate - offer your specials to ALL your guests. After all, we are there to enjoy & pay you so why shouldn't the dining room be given the same specials as those who happen to sit outside or in the bar. It makes me know that I must ask to be seated in a certain area in order to take advantage of your special savings. Our server was good, food was good. We had kale Caesar salad, margarita flatbread & the salad with shrimp. Prices were good too. Nice crowd for a beautiful Wednesday evening out for dinner.

This was our third visit to Matt the Millers and we took our three grandkids. Our waiter was great, however it took over 35 minutes to get our food. Unacceptable. I’m not sure we will go back anytime soon.

We arrived the same time as a group of 60. Even with such a large group, we were out in normal time. I am sure that they were prepared ahead of time for such a large group, however our service did not suffer due to the large group. We love dining at Matt the Miller's Tavern.

Had a great meal, delicious food and highly recommend the shrimp and grits. Fun atmosphere and good wait staff. And our waitress got us fed and out the door in time for our show at The Civic Theatre.

They have 2 tables by Kitchen - neither should be used - Servers go by constantly and very very noisy. First table looked directly into where serves pick u food.

Server was attentive and food was good bar type food - but that area should not be used for patrons

Out waitress seemed to be in a rush our whole meal. She didn’t even wait to get everyone’s drink order before she ran off. My mother never received her salad and our waitress said, “they must have combined the salads.” When I received my steak, it was covered in red seasoning and was so spicy. The second steak that was brought out was not cooked to my medium order. I used to love going to this restaurant, but it’s just not as good as it used to be.

I was a bit underwhelmed. I’d heard good things so perhaps my expectations were too high. And the folks who recommended Matt’s has not been there in the last 6 months to over a year. Had the salmon and the shrimp and grits. Salmon was done well. The shrimp were cooked to perfection. But sides were very mediocre. Grits were a travesty (by southern standards anyway). Service was STELLAR! We will be back to give it another try.

Front entrance staff, excellent. Waitress, excellent. Food, mediocre and costly for what was received. I might go back but it won’t be a top three choice. The saving was the staff, very polite, helpful, just plain nice. I didn’t answer whether I would recommend because I don’t know. Maybe it was an off night in the kitchen, I don’t know. If that food came out the same on a second visit Iwouldnt be back again much less recommend to anyone.

The busiest day of the year for this excellent restaurant. Our waiter was busting his butt to make ALL OF HIS TABLES HAPPY!!!
I’m sure it was hard for the management to get enough employees on duty on the 4th of July.

Our waiter was David and he was excellent. We love the restaurant and go there one a month.

I’ve been to Matt the Miller for drinks and lunch but not dinner. It was a fun atmosphere, busy but not overly crowded. The waiter was very friendly but a little scattered (asked for an appetizer order when we’d already placed one with him) and almost nervous. Maybe he was new? Food was pretty good. Bottles of wine were discounted so that was nice!

We had a great first experience with both adults and small children in our party. The menu selection met a wide variety of individual tastes and portion sizes were generous. The deserts were very large and delicious. Our server, Daniel, did a great job keeping our drinks filled and our table cleared of extra plates. We will make this one of our new places to go with the family.

The food was unremarkable for the price. The service was fine in that our order was taken and food delivered, but the waiter was not engaged and definitely didn’t do anything to make us feel valued as customers. The person who brought our drinks actually spilled some on my leg while trying to be fancy (pouring two beers at once). I wouldn’t go back, not for what we paid.

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?

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.
