We usually go to Matthew's for the bar (food and drinks). As far as the food - it is typical bar fare. Nothing special, but it gets the job done. Where this place loses points (in my opinion) is in the bar service. The bartenders...More

Having visited recently to celebrate some birthdays, The staff was very accommodating for a large and maybe unexpected bar crowd. The drinks were good and we stayed for a meal that was also good.

Innacurate online menu. Bartender unfriendly. Food just so-so. Don't understand what the attraction is here. It appears they can't decide just what type of restaurant they want to be. Dated interior. This place needs a facelift, better management and a chef instead of a line-cook.

The crab cakes now have breading in them. The menu seems to get less exciting over the years as chefs change, serving food which would be standard at any run of the mill place. A nice party room downstairs for special events. Service is fair,...More

It is not just a neighborhood hangout. I have hosted lunches and dinners for job candidates there. You can go more upscale in the dining room or more casual in the bar area where there are booths and tables. There is often a lively social...More

Thank you to both former customers that answered my questions. We will not be back there again either. If anyone does go there around 9-ish please ask for your check after they have brought you your food!
