I'm a vegan and just wanted to go out with my friends, eat a salad, enjoy the company and atmosphere, no big deal. The hostess told us incorrect drink/app specials, which caused a $10+ difference in checks for each of us. I told the waitress of my dietary restrictions and she recommended what she could. I asked her if the portabella burger minus the cheese, but with a pretzel bun, could be made vegan - no meat, dairy, or other animal bi-products. I also do a fair amount of research every time I go out about the ingredients on my smart phone anyways. She check with the kitchen, which assured my burger was good to go. It took over 30 minutes to get two entress and a side salad out - on a sluggish Wed evening. First of all, the $11 burger was smaller than a McDonald's burger. Didn't see her for another 20 minutes. No pretzel bun, and it came with fries (not indicated in the menu). I asked if they were fried in veggie oil or animal lard - lard. But apparently the burger was not (so our waitress assured me). So she brought me a side of broccoli instead, since it was the only option available to me. She neglected to tell me that it was an upcharge, however. When checks came and we discovered the difference in what we were told and what mysterious upcharges had shown up, she tried to rattle off the specials again and blame the hostess instead of simply apologizing, making the adjustments to the best of her ability, and correcting the checks. From this experience it's evident that the restaurant does not function well together between host/waitress/kitchen. Step it up Matildas/Mad Macs. Your live band was fun but my friends/fellow service industry companions, we could have had a much cheaper and enjoyable experience at home.

I am new to this, so please bear with me. This has been the second time that I had visited Matilda's restaurant. I live in PA. My two children were with me the first time, so they chose Matilda's again. My first Son had a burger. He loved it! My other Son had Mac & Cheese. I had to taste it. It was loaded with good quality cheeses. I had the Fish & Chips beer battered. The fish was cook to perfection, as were the chips. Slaw was homemade. For dessert we all shared the "House Specialty", medium size chocolate bunt cake with two large scoops of ice cream, and topped with a swirl of whipped cream! Enough for three! Overall I must say, the food was great, the waitress was very attentive. The place was very clean. If you are even near the Newark,DE area, try them out. You will be very happy!!!

We waited an hour for our food. Burgers were not cook like we asked. We got burgers that were well done on the outside like we asked for but raw in the middle. It was like they through giant frozen patties on a flat grill. Top off the experience with the mystery plastic fond in my soap.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Bender, thank you for the feedback. It is certainly not acceptable to wait that long to be served your meal, and on top of that, not have the correct temperatures for your burgers. This incident will be addressed with our staff immediately. We hope you accept our apologies and give us another try sometime. Sincerely, Ryan.

WATCH BILLING! Am customer member. 1) Birthday 2/1 coupon only got $15 credit on higher priced meal. 2) Charged full price "Happy Hour" drink ordered 6pm, rung up like 7:04 right after cut off; Signs outside and ALL DR tables said discounted, but waitress for :40 said not, then was. Got 6pm order at 6:40! 3) Hamburger advetrised at 1/2 price. In bar we asked if that incl one we thought wanted. He said "yes", but at bill said was not discounted as was "Their" Burger. 4) Bought several 2/1 $15 on $30 meals for us and son, but twice charged ADDITIONAL $15 each. Paid $15 + $17 coupon + "discount" for 2 $17 crab meals. NEVER GOT MONEY BACK OR RETURN CALLS!

Icky food.... I've tried it twice and never again. The mac and cheese is bland at best and gross at worst. Tried the meat patties tonight -- soggy mystery meat in tasteless pastry in gravy from a box. Disgusting. Waste of money.
