A few years back I went here and the place was unbelievable but since then I've noticed a steady decline. Place was dirty, placemats were stuck to the table. When I asked the server to clean it she took a dirtier wet stained towel and smeared it front of me. Waited 2 hours for food that was a disappointment.

We have eaten brunch or lunch at Matthews several times. We always sit on the deck during good weather months & the trees give you shade which makes for a relaxing atmosphere. The service is usually good. The best item on the menu are the burgers, hands down they rock! Salads, sandwiches and breakfast are good too. Good drinks &... More

This night my wife had lamb tikka marsala; a savory lamb stew with Indian spices in a yogurt cream sauce. I had spaghetti carbonara with herbed slices of pork belly. Both... More

I've been to this restaurant for many years and always had a good experience. Tonight, from the moment we walked in the door, the waitress Dee gave us massive attitude. We were a party of six and she said there was no room even though there were three large tables at the front. We asked her if we could sit... More

Visited Matts on main with a party of 12 (we did make a reservation) when our waitress approached us to take our drink order we asked to have separate checks. She became visibly annoyed with us and said she would worry about it later. We waited almost 40 minutes for the food to arrive (which we understood because we were... More

Cold beer on tap, good lunch choices and reasonable prices. Cold beer on tap, good lunch choices and reasonable prices. (Enough said - making up the word quota).

Although this is one of a few eateries in Callicoon, they should step up their act. The tables need washing and the food is not that great although the prices are high.

Love the place, the food and the owners! A great gathering spot with reliably good food from breakfast thru dinner. A yummy Eggs Benedict on Sunday and a very active bar scene too.

I eat at Matthews several times a year and have done so for many years. It is an hour drive one way for me to get there but it is worth it. Their menu selections show the chefs imagination and his mother in laws Cuban influence.

Ate outside on their lovely deck overlooking the Callicoon creek and park. Service was a bit spotty but the food was delicious.
