First, the review is meant to be seen in the context of where the place is. Rolla Mo. Not Houston or Denver. This is not a high end joint serving 75$ usda prime steaks. It is a clear step above Chilis or Applebee's. Or even the other local steakhouse. Service is fair. Our waiter was inexperienced. The steak preparation was fine but well short of great. Salad and breadsticks were fine.

I've been to Matt's many times, even back when it was at the old location on 10th street. At that old location, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was great, and service was friendly. At current location, I've never left happy. Food is good, not great. Salads are the best part of the meals. BUT, if you go with a bigger group, you can't move tables together (we've been told they are too heavy, they will break, they will cause an injury, etc). Many times our party has had to sit separately, and at times we've gotten up and walked out because we were seated so far apart. We were told by a waitress at one time that they wouldn't serve St James wine because their bottles didn't have a CORK! Staff, though attentive, are often unfriendly (not rude, just uncaring/unfriendly/grumpy). Ambiance *looks* nice, but the place is SOOO loud; kitchen noises throughout (glasses/plates clinking), noisy waterfall, and neighboring conversations are loud to compensate.

Last night my husband, daughter, finance and I met at Matt's to taste test some of the food for a Wedding Banquet planned later this year. The food was FABULOUS, so delicious. Matt truly is a great Chef. He knows how to cook delicious food. We are so looking forward to the food for the Wedding Reception. Thanks Matt for making us feel so welcome and for the Excellent food and service you provided.

Great food and Service. Better than any other steakhouse in Rolla. Steaks are quality, service was above average and prices are reasonable.

My husband and I stopped here while passing thru Rolla because he wanted a steak. He ordered the prime rib..pretty fatty and over priced. Unlimited salad and bread was good. Skip the Bloody Mary too. Watered down...
