Matey's Restaurant on Urbanspoon

I ate here a month or so ago, wanting to wait until it was warm enough to sit outside. We sat outside downstairs. We weren't sure what to do when we walked in, as there was no one there to seat us. We just kind of wandered in until a girl who worker there saw us and said to seat ourselves. There was one group sitting outside when we got there. The girl who was our waitress seemed nervous, like she was new to waitressing. Your drinks there come in disposable plastic cups, and we almost had to track down our waitress to refill them. There was a lot on the menu that looked good. I ordered a shrimp basket and my friend ordered a chicken sandwich. The food was hot, esp the waffle fries, they were pretty much amazing. I was in a deep fried heaven. The shrimp was good, not tasteless like a lot of places. But it wasn't to die for either. Sad to say, Long John Silver's has my favorite shrimp-it has the most flavor! Anyway, did I mention the waffle fries? Oh yeah. ;P As far as speed, service wasn't bad, we didn't wait forever, but it wasn't quick.

For the atmosphere, I could close my eyes and think I was on vacation. It was the chatter, the music, and then my plastic cup and all the seafood available, I liked that. But it doesn't seem like a very family oriented place. I don't think my 7 year old nephew would love it there, and I like to go where my family likes to go. The prices were a little higher than I liked. 

Bottom line: The best way to explain it is that if someone wanted to go here, I wouldn't object, but I wouldn't suggest going here if my friends and I were looking for a place to eat. 

3/5 stars.

Would I go back? Yes
