Food was good and the staff were very friendly. Enjoyed being on the water while eating dinner. It turns into a nightclub after 10 pm and stays open until the last guest leaves.

Never had a bad meal here, They do get very busy but the food and view is worth it! Prices are appropriate for Fire Island, I will be going back here.

Dinner for 10 with reservations. Seated,right away,first round of drinks and apps were good. It all,went bad after that. Had to grab server to remind him we had ordered drinks. I had the seafood linguine, it sucked. More than half of the mussels were not opened. I guess either undercooked bad. It was,probably the worst sauce I have ever had.... More

Food was good, very nice and good service. Like the views and almost everything was great. The town itself was full of 20 something Year old's, but Matthew's was fantastic. They also sat us quickly and moved us inside when one in our group was cold.This was with a very limited area to seat us b/c the place was full.

We went with a group of four after learning that the restaurant we had planned to visit was already closed for the season. It proved to be a good choice because we all enjoyed the meal and watched a beautiful sunset while enjoying it. We shared a mussel appetizer - big enough for four - and ordered four different seafood... More

Come to Matthew's Seafood House for the view, but don't expect to be blown away by the food. While the frozen drinks are good, the lobster roll here is merely adequate - and this comes from a fat guy who has rolled a lot of lobsters. The lobster is chunky, but not flavorful and ultimately forgettable. Also, beware of drink... More

We had an 8:30 reservation mid-week, and it appeared the crowd was thinning out. We both had the Cajun swordfish, which was excellent... perfectly cooked, as good as I've ever had in a restaurant. The only disappointment for us was our server, who went from being very attentive up to the food being delivered, to persona non grata for the... More

I've always had a good experience with the food and service at Matthews. Beautiful views and dock space available if you are coming by boat.

Usually love it here BUT after making a reservation for our 2 year wedding anniversary, we were not seated and treated like dirt. Left and doubt we will go back anytime soon. Went to The Landing instead which rocked and everyone was so nice - celebrated there! Note to the people last night - be nicer and maybe at least... More
