Our meal was delicious, short ribs with pumpkin risotto and Cider brined pork chops. Our only disappointment was that they ran out of creme brulee! Not to worry.... the pumpkin bread pudding and pumpkin gelato were excellent substitutes.

We had dinner during the mushroom 4 course dinner offered last week. This had to be the one of the best meals ever prepared. Each course was incredible. Service, as always, was fabulous. Can't wait to go back again.

We were visiting the area and found this listing on TA. Great experience! The food was very good, good selection and service was fabulous. Nicer atmosphere, wouldn’t wear t-shirts and shorts. Personally.

Description
Matt’s Red Rooster Grill is a contemporary American bistro paying homage to a wood fired grill that “brings out the best flavors” of traditional American cuisine, reinvented creatively. A CIA (Hyde Park) graduate, Chef Matt McPherson stays true to his local roots integrating the finest seasonal ingredients, sourced from local family farms & day boat fisherman into his unique dishes. The restored Victorian home provides a relaxed elegant atmosphere to catch up with friends, celebrate special occasions, enjoy a romantic dinner, or impress an important client. As Matt’s creations pamper your taste buds, the staff indulges you with rock star service, the perfect remedy for a long day or week. With two floors, downstairs feeds off the warmth & energy of a bustling open kitchen. Four seats at the Chef's counter let you feel the heat, as you watch Matt & his team from a perch over the grill. Upstairs is away from the bustle while the porch provides relaxed & refreshing outdoor dining.
