This is a very typical pancake place for our area of the Grand Strand and into Calabash. Nothing fancy, just good food.

My wife and I were in the area for a wedding, and walked into Matthew's at around 11:00 am on. Sunday with about 14-16 extended family members. While there, the number of family grew and the staff continued to get us all in and together. The food was fantastic and the service even better.

We stopped to Matthew's pancakes on the way home from vacation. I ordered the feta and spinach omelette, with rye toast, my husband had the sausage omelette, and the kids had pancakes and eggs. We also had grits on the side. Everything was absolutely delicious!!! The omelette's were flavorful and with fresh ingredients and the grits were creamy and buttery.... More

Tired of chain restaurants? Want a place with great food AND a friendly, family atmosphere? Matthews is THE place to eat. Locals love this place to meet for coffee, great breakfast, and lively conversation. If you are anywhere on Highway 17 traveling north or south, be sure to stop here. The pancakes, waffles & crepes are the best you'll ever... More

Lately their food has been wonderful. Very reasonable prices and good service. Since i do not like fruit on a greek salad, i ask them not to put it on. Nothing fancy, just good food. Their soups are super!! (bad pun).

They are only open for breakfast and lunch. Nothing fancy but just good food and service, priced very reasonable. A place where you will find the regular locals as well as the golfers before they hit the course. I would definitely go again when I am back in the area.
