We chose Matt the Miller Tavern for a family gathering. This was a very good choice. The wait staff was very attentive without being overbearing. David, our server, made several accommodations for us. The food was delicious and delivered hot. Best yet, we were able to get Left Handed Milk Stout! The restaurant is very classy without being stuffy. We were able to enjoy ourselves tremendously. Thanks to all who made it possible.

We came in with three toddlers so we were not exactly the ideal table in a server’s world. Our server was excellent and attentive regardless. No one seemed bothered by us, and we had a great meal as a family. Thankful for the ease, quality, and quickness of Matt the Miller’s!

Disappointing. We went their for Sunday brunch but they stopped serving brunch in December. The web was not updated. Had a drink and went somewhere else

Matt the Miller's Tavern- Kenwood
Responded on February 24, 2020

I'm sorry to hear about the confusion. I'd love to hear where on the web you saw that we still had a brunch buffet? It is listed on our website, as well as the "what's happening" that we only offer limited brunch options via an a la carte menu. We are still doing our Sunday brunch at our West Chester location but found that guests preferred regular menu service at our Kenwood location. :) We appreciate any additional feedback that you can give us!

We were about 5 minutes early for our 730 reservation. They didn't have us seated until close to 745 so we sat and waited for a while. Once we got seated, we had to wait for about 10 minutes until we got a waitress to come to our table and got waters and a beer. That took another 10 minutes to get. Though I must say that after that initial slowness, things got much better and faster with food and service. The Buffalo Cauliflower was really good and worth trying and the Fish and Chips are really pretty good.

Every thing was good except the wait staff kept stopping by to ask if everything was OK. Too much. Actually once after the meal is served is sufficient. They actually stopped by four times.

This is the 2nd time for us and nothing changed from the first time. Portions of Walleye are too small. I ordered an extra fillet and was charged $8 for an extra ounce and a half. We probably will not be back.

Food and service very good. Have been to the restaurant several times and have always had a good experience.
Something that always surprises me is when the hostess says “ we will get you SAT shortly”. You are not “ SAT” you are “SEATED”.

Food was great...service was fine but we had three different people stop by the table multiple times to see if we needed anything...its great they were on top of things but we only needed refills once and this was a business lunch. The interruptions were unnecessary.

Our waitress recognized this but the manager and somebody else who I don't know what his role did not.

Matt the Miller's Tavern-Kenwood was a very pleasant change from the usual chain restaurants. Six of us had dinner at Matt's on Valentine's Day at 7PM. We were seated at a table by request and reservation. The filet was perfect and the garlic mashed potatoes were mild enough that I enjoyed them very much. The fish and chips was ordered by three of our party and I saw that they were all peeling off the breading so it was just too much breading. The pork chop was huge and they seemed to like it. There was a jerk chicken dish that was so outstanding that our friend wanted to come back again for sure and order it again along with the tomato basil soup. We will go there again.

One of our go-to places and they did not disappoint. Three of us. I had the walleye which I cook and order out when I see it and this may have been the best I ever had. Our son had the shrimp and grits and loved it and my husband had the Cuban and said it was excellent. All sides were well prepared and all plates were cleaned. The manager was very helpful with a wine selection. Our server seemed new. He was pleasant enough but could have been more attentive and needs to become more knowledgeable. We'll continue to be fans.

Both of us ordered seafood that was under-seasoned. The vegetables were similarly flavorless. I did like the flexibility of the wine menu (you can choose the pour size). The service was extremely slow, which caused us to miss our movie. We didn't complain, but our server and the manager apologized for the wait and gave us a $10 gift card for our next visit. My expectations were higher based on the polished look from the outside, so it was pretty disappointing.

Thank you for reviewing Kim. We're sorry to hear that you found the seafood dish that you ordered to be overall flavorless and that the service was less than spectacular. We are glad to hear that the manager stopped by to address the issue and to welcome you back to visit us. Your visit is not standard and they have used it as a coaching moment for the server. We hope you will come back and allow us to try again with your gift certificate. Kristin
