Not many restaurants are open on Monday nights! Matt's never disappoints. Always friendly staff and consistently good food.

Food was delicious

Server was overtly flirting w my friend and completely ignored me- barely made any eye contact and made my friend feel awkward which was disappointing- but food was prompt,
Delicious and grateful Matt’s made it through.

The food was great. We were there for my hubbys bday. I had rung in to all that they do a candle in his dessert. They said yes and dessert would be free for him. But neither things happened 😕😕. The food was very good though and we had a good time regardless.

I have been coming to Matt's ever since they opened. My late wife loved your seafood and said she'd stop coming if they ever took it off the menu. We'd stop for lunch during the 4 years she fought cancer and were coming hope from chemo treatments. A couple years after she passed I met a lady on-line and we set up our first 'in-person' meet at Matt's. Last night our dinner there was for our 4 year anniversary. Thanks for the free dessert!!!

Had the fish and chips. It says on the menu that the fish was halibut but I’m pretty sure it was cod.

I've had the burger several times and it continues to be of high quality and taste. I think it's one of the best burgers in this area, albeit a bit pricey. The price likely is tied to the quality of the meat itself.

Service by Angies was outstanding. Another server recognized us and stopped to chat and ask how we've been. Nice touch.

Although not right next to the door our table was a bit cold, especially considering the size of the crowd generating body heat.

Food was tasty but small portions of veggies on the side, like 5 green beans and two little slices of squash. The waiter was great! My husband said the scallops were just OK, not the best. I had the prime rib, which was delicious but there was a lot of fat, maybe 40% of the cut.

Overall, the food was good but not fantastic 😉

Matt's is a new favorite. We took friends from Seattle. All our meals were delish - scallops with risotto, winter salad with chicken, Matt's meatloaf, and the prime rib. Yum!

It seems as tho everything is more expensive post-Covid. The cambazola Flatbread was good but not worth $13 to me.

The service was excellent and the young man who served as in the area in the back was great! So we'll most likely be back.

I know a lot of restaurants have increased prices since Covid. Matts has risen in price dramatically it seems. Hard to justify these prices for the food quality and experience. Way better options out there for the price you will pay.

First, the great. The service was excellent, our reservation request for particular seating was fulfilled and ready when we arrived. Server was awesome, friendly, precise.

Most of the food was very good, except for the med rare 9oz. Filet Mignon which came cold and rare with a very tough membrane through the middle that was impossible to cut. Our children started to misbehave so we left rather quickly so I didn’t have a chance to let the restaurant correct it which is a little unfair but had we stayed we would have interrupted the quiet experience for the rest of the patrons around us so for that we apologize.

Have only had carry out from Matt’s in the last 1 1/2 years. On 10/18/21 we had dinner with a close friend. What a great dining experience. We were seated right away ( did have a 5:30 reservation on open table) our waitress was right there within a couple minutes. Extremely delightful lady, great job explaining happy hour and a couple of her favorites. Just so happened all three of us had the Prime Rib. Absolutely great taste and done perfectly for how we ordered. We never felt like we were being rushed, had a couple drinks and shared a dessert. Only been there for inside dining this one time but we will most certainly go back very soon.

It was my wife’s birthday, which I indicated on the reservation. Outside of the host saying “Happy Birthday”, the occasion was not acknowledged in any other way. I don’t know how OpenTable can say the place is “Good for Birthdays”. Oysters were good as should be expected. Prime rib, their specialty, came out cold. Mashed potatoes were dry. Great fries, though. We had 4 steaks, all north of $40. With two appetizers and two drinks, the total, including tip, was $300+. I wouldn’t call that “$$”. My wife called the ambience “Cheesecake Factory”. To top it all off, we had to wait nearly 20 minutes to pay the tab. After a good evening of service, the server disappeared when I was time for the check.

Love Matt's. We discovered it after restaurants reopened and keep going back. Their prime rib is consistently tender and flavorful, vegetable pairings are always perfectly cooked and fresh. Last night, tried the meatloaf - keep this on the menu!! It was delish. Great wine selections by the glass. Service was excellent- a shout out to our personable server, Mark. Now, when can we go back?

I have been a faithful customer of Matts ever since it opened. Not too long ago I went there for happy hour & saw a free table on the patio. I was told I cannot be seated there because those are reserved. On a subsequent occasion I tried to reserve a table on the patio & was told it was first come first serve. Not good.

I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate my wife’s birthday there with a few friends. When I made the reservation on Open Table I mentioned the fact that we had been coming there for a long time, & though the patio was first come first serve I wanted to see if they would make an exception to accompdate five people. I mentioned that I wanted Jacob to be my server if he was working that night (he was) as I always get excellent service from him, which is why I wantrd to be seated in his section.

When I got there it's as though staff didn’t even read my request (or maybe even care). There was one table available at the entrance & it was not in Jacob's section. The wait server seemed pleasant enough but problems became immediately apparent.

One of my friends noticed that her armrest was broken, which could’ve been a liability for Matts. The wait person switched it out with another chair, but I was shocked to see that somebody else was seated at that very same chair. That person could’ve leaned against the armrest and fallen over, and I made a point of mentioning this to that customer.

Then my wife accidentally spilled her wine. The wait person cleaned it up promptly, but totally forgot about the fact that my wife’s wine glass is now empty. After too long I had to ask the wait person to replace the drink when that’s something I shouldn't have to do.

I don’t see why it would’ve been such a big deal to have seated somebody else at the table I ultimately got & to leave the table in Jacob's section open as per my request. I will continue to visit Matt's for casual dining but will think twice before choosing it for a special occasion.

The ordered appetizer wasn’t served. Long wait for a lukewarm meal. Inattentive waiter. Hostess was unable to seat us al fresco despite having a reservation. Where do you get chicken? Costco? The breast was huge! $29 for a cheap chicken? $100+ meal for two for a so-so meal and experience? You can do better.
