Menu features including Duck Dumplings with garlic-rosemary cream; Black-eyed pea cake sandwich on wheatberry bread and Rueben sandwiches with Guinness braised corn beef on Marble Rye had us drooling at the door. This Modern American Bistro sources local ingredients whenever possible. Although not featured on the lunch menu, if you ask nicely the chef will be happy to prepare a... More

This started badly. when we arrived we were told there was a 45 minute wait. I thought OK, I'll get us some drinks in a go cup to have while we wait. Even though the bartender made eye contact with me 3 or more times while I was standing there, he left me standing there without taking an order. Leaving... More

This place was recommended to us by a local and it clearly is off the beaten tourist path, though not very far off. Elements of the food here were terrific but several details detracted significantly from full enjoyment of our breakfast here. 1) Bring the pepper grinder with the food (or better yet provide each table with one) so that...

Arrived at 10 am for breakfast. Half hour wait which isn't bad for that time of day during tourist season. Staff was undermanned and dealt with it by leaving many tables empty which was frustrating. We ended up eating at the bar when two seats came open. Probably not best choice since it had a rather dingy smell. Food took... More

Thank you for your review - we appreciate your feedback! Due to the size of our kitchen, it is crucial that all of our guests are sat at a steady pace so as not to overwhelm the back of the house. Sometimes this makes it look like we are leaving tables empty. I do, however, understand your frustration. It sounds... More

Six of us dined here and were all very happy. Kale Salad excellent as is the duck. $10 off bottles of wine on Wednesday which was an added bonus.

Great here early because the secret is out their food service and atmosphere are top notch. Shrimp & grits perfect omelette was perfect and drinks meet all expectation. Will be in the list every time I'm in the city.

Recently stopped in for a business lunch with a few co-workers. As usually B Matthew's did not disappoint. I've been multiple times for brunch and always had a wonderful experience. On this visit I had the Reuben with sweet potato fries. Portion size was on point and food flavorful. Fried green tomatoes as an appetizer were excellent. B Matthew's is... More

We had a 60th birthday for my husband there and the food was not that good. The service was somewhat unpleasant at first, then they warmed up a little. I expected from the reviews a much better dinner. Not a very good menu. I would not go back.

Abbey G, Manager at B Matthew's Eatery, responded to this review

Thanks for your feedback - I'm sorry your time with us didn't hit the mark for you. I'm surprised to hear you felt your server was unpleasant at first - this is an issue I will address with our staff. I hope you'll decide to give us another chance to impress you sometime soon. More
