We visited Matthews three times for lunch during our stay. Can't beat 2 for 1 happy hour from 12-1pm. The fish and steak sandwiches were very good. Highly recommend for lunch.

Good food for reasonable prices. It is an outside restaurant with no AC. Tables right along the water are available. They were accommodating with food allergies and prepared a fish dinner accordingly.
