First the bartenders were first class and spot on. Helpful and informative. This is what the $15.00 Buffalo chicken mac & cheese looked like. One chicken tender no blue cheese crumbles. Next time I will eat the crap at Applebee's before I would ever come back here.

The kind of menu that just one visit can't do it justice. Great appetizers, fantastic burgers, and I can't quite decide on a good enough superlative for the Mac and cheese dishes. If you're anywhere close, stop in. Oh, be sure to check out the restrooms, too. This is a one of a kind place!

Very busy and friendly local bar with great happy hour prices and other specials. Only ate once there but the tacos I had were very good. Would recommend this to anyone staying at the Red Roof 5 minutes walk away

I had the lobster mac and cheese. It was excellent! The real kicker for me was the fried mashed potato balls. Really good stuff.

The place is loaded with screens on the bar side, which is always open. The restaurant side is much quieter when open. The bar area was recently redecorated. It's very nice. Service was a hair slow but worth the wait. I had the Lobster Mac, the smaller portion. I don't think anyone can finish the large size. The lobster pieces... More

We went there to hear a singer and food. It was our first visit. The place is so loud with all of the TVs we could barely hear the singer and we were very close. I ordered the chicken and waffle. The waffle was way to thick and dry for a waffle sandwich and the chicken was small and not... More

Our property boasts a comfort zone with a unique, casual dining experience, appropriate for all ages, but most importantly, simply delicious mac and cheese. Matildas & Mad Macs will be offering a mouthwatering selection of creamy and browned to perfection mac and cheese. The mac is on center stage, but not to be missed is the decadent hand-formed burgers, plump juicy wings and the homemade soups. Menu highlights include the pizza mac, with fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic, and fresh basil… Yum! The lobster mac, with tender chunks of fresh lobster, cognac, tarragon and mascarpone cheese… Ridiculous! The portobello mac, with roasted portobello, goat cheese, mozzarella and a touch of truffle oil… Yes this really happens... The signature burger, hand formed, fire grilled, and on a baked fresh bun. Side selections include generous portions of seasoned fries paired with our white cheddar cheese sauce. Perfection…. For desserts, how about a red-velvet cake with cream cheese frosting; and for adults, may we suggest a drunken milkshake. Sorry kids 21 and older only.Togo is Unique at Matildas & Mad Macs. Ready to-go hot or cold mad-macs is the perfect way to fill your belly at your home or office. Microwavable and environmentally safe prepared dishes heat in seconds and are fun for the whole family. Don’t order pizza, order pizza mac!!! Available in regular, wheat and whole grain macaroni.Once you're properly fueled with some of our signature dishes, there's plenty of entertainment to keep the fun going, from karaoke on Mondays and Saturdays, to Texas hold'em poker on Wednesdays and trivia on Thursdays. We also provide live entertainment every Friday night! Let the fun begin…
