This place is CLOSED – we had our groom's dinner booked there and one week before they closed their doors. what a waste of a great restaurant and experience.
Excellent home cookin's – My wife and I ate here in December.............food was fantastic and the atmosphere was casual classy.....would recommend to any for a nice meal.........the idiot who ruined V-Day for his wife should have checked into the restuarant being open before HE ruined the day for his wife
MATTY B'S CLOSED PERMANETLY? – I went to a great website for reservations (opentable dot com) and made my reservation at Matty B's at 7:00 PM on Valentines Day. I thought I was being romantic and smart with my money (not terribly pricey at first glance). UNFORTUNATLY, when I called Matty B's phone number to ensure our spot was confirmed on V Day the phone number does not ring like normal. It was wierd; the number dialed doesn?t get disconnected; you just hear nothing on the other line. FOOLISHLY, I passed this off as some sort of Phone Company problem and surly Matty B's must still have our reservation. TRAGICLY, upon arrival at the front door my girlfriend said "wait this place looks closed," and indeed the two front doors were locked! No note, no directions, no explanation. SO I MUST ASSUME MATTY B'S IS CLOSED PERMANETLY, OR HAS REALLY REALLY MESSED UP MANAGEMENT PRACTICES. THANKS FOR RUINING VALENTINES DAY MATTY B'S. IF YOU GO TO MATTY B'S YOU ARE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
A good experience, give it a try – My wife and I had a date night last week and wanted to try somewhere we have never been. It was very a good experience. Unlike a lot of the other post we had great service and our food was wonderful. We will be going back to Matty B's very soon.
Great food and excellent service – We made reservations for Matty B's for dinner before the Wild game. I decided to check the reviews on the web and was disturbed to see that they were not highly recommended. However the six of us decided to try it. Don't believe the poor reviews. The food and service were excellent. In fact the walleye fish fry was hot and fresh. The halibut was superb. And the service was great. We will be back. Thanks for a great time. PS: the Wild won in overtime against the AV's.
Would Not Recommend Eating Here – My husband insisted that we try Matty B's. So we scheduled reservations for a time after the Wild Hockey crowd cleared out. Still the service was terrible; extremely slow and inattentive. I couldn't figure it out because there was hardly anybody left in the restaurant. They ran out of the chicken entree. My husband said his meatloaf was very good so that was the highlight of the evening. My mother (from out of town) and I ordered chicken chili only to find mostly beans and no chicken . I don't know why but the soup was so hot it took a long time before we could cool it down. If you are willing to put up with lousy service but love meatloaf...I would recommend Matty B's. Otherwise, we won't be back.
Huge disappointment – I figured a St Paul native, would put his heart into his "heart of downtown " restaurant. Nope. I made reservations for 6 with an 8:30 reservation. 3 couples, 2 from wisconsin...me from saint paul. Boy was i embarassed. There was no host at the door for 10 mins, and the bartender told us we should hunt her down. Ok, seriously. Once seated we order some apps, calamari, crab cakes, and artichoke dip. We sent our almost still alive calamari back, and it became the ongoing joke for the rest of the night. After we ordered our entrees, our server came back to tell us they were out of half of what we ordered...long story short...2 steaks sent back, very bland pork chops, and no sauce on the halibut...and horrible garlic mashies....how do you mess up on potatos? Poor Service, Horrible Food, not expensive but still over priced, Birk still my fav Viking.
Worst Experience EVER! – I cannot begin to explain the horrible service, food and atmosphere we experienced at Matty B's. I like to think that my husband and I are relatively casual and OK with bad service once in a while, but this was ridiculous! The server (who shall remain nameless) was not the least bit attentive. After placing our order, he waited 15 minutes to tell us that they were out of French Onion Soup -what? He passed our table several times, noticed our empty water & drink glasses, and still managed to not ask for refills. It was almost like he was sleep walking! We didn't even get bread until after we were almost done with our appetizer! The hostess was the one to refill our H2O & bring us another drink. I hope he tips her out!
Food: The nachos were average (I could have made them in my microwave) and the $38 porterhouse was HORRIBLE! It wasn't even cooked correctly...overdone & fatty. It was a very poor piece of meat.
Overall, we were so unimpressed that I swore I would write a review about this place. Please, please, PLEASE spend your hard earned $$ somewhere else that actually cares about the customer (service & food quality). There are so many other GREAT restaurants in the area...don't waste your time!
Highly recommend! – We found Matty B's on the internet without knowing much about it. When I read the reviews on this page, I started to get a little nervous. Thankfully, we had an amazing time! We went there on a Saturday night to celebrate birthdays in the family. The atmosphere from the moment we walked in was classy without being too uptight. Our waitress was wonderful! She really took care of us and told us more about the restaurant and the owner (Matt Birk, MN Vikings player). The owner was actually there and was wonderful enough to talk to us and watch a little of the football game currently on. The food was amazing from the first bite of bread. They had a jalapeno potato bread which was excellent! The wild rice soup was creamy without feeling too heavy. The entrees were all wonderful and had some amazing flavors. Finally, the dessert was a perfect ending to the meal. The banana's foster was fun because they made it table side. Overall, it was the most fun I've had in a restaurant in a long time! We plan on going back again, hopefully soon.
MN Bland – We dined on a Saturday evening, during a Wild game. I was disappointed to see many Wild fans in the restaurant, in jerseys and tennis shoes. C'mon show some class people! The service was good, our waitress very friendly. She seemed busy and could have used an extra hand with expediting relish trays and orders, but she handled it well. The food MN bland. For starters we had the calamari, which was served in a coned dish with parchment paper, nice touch but maybe I am short but I had to keep tipping the cone dealy to stab the food, which caused oil to drip all over. The relish tray is a nice touch, the olive spread is very good, use it on the bread. The salad, another mess ...they serve the "wedge" which means you spend most of your time cutting lettuce to form your own salad.
I had the steak which was good, the garlic "smashed" potatoes on the other hand could have used some actual garlic. My husband ordered the cajun porkchops When one thinks of cajun seasoning one anticipates the food to be spicy. I think they used seasoning salt, red pepper flakes and called it a day.
I may return again, maybe will try the Mpls version I hear the menu is better.
