We had dinner here. We split the Captains Seafood special and had a side of green beans and cups of Clam Chowder. The halibut and cod were deep fried. The breading was thick on both. The halibut dry and not much cod inside the breading. They probably don't prepare these fresh at the restaurant. The clam chowder was good as... More

If you are looking for gourmet dining in plush surroundings, this place is not for you. If you are after good basic food, friendly service, and basic surroundings then head on over. I've been to Mat-su Family Restaurant numerous times and I've never been disappointed. The food is fresh, good quality, and appropriate serving sizes. They have fantastic looking pies... More

My husband is not an especially adventurous eater, so dining out can sometimes be challenging. We were happy to find out that the Mat-Su Family Restaurant served up good, down home food. The decor certainly lacked any (updated) character, but the waitstaff was very attentive and especially friendly to our 2 year old. The kids were thrilled with the reindeer... More

This restaurant has a wonderful menu. If you can't find something you like here, you should probably just stay home. The prices are reasonable for the area.

I have a real problem when I find hair in my food. It makes me lose my appetite! There are plenty of other places in the Valley to eat.

If your version of home cooking is out of a box from Sam's Club, then this is the place for you. The food was bland, and I think they cater to the older generation who live in the area.

We should have known what to expect when we pulled into the parking area and there was only one other car in the lot! We were seated by a nice young girl. From there it went downhill! The food was expensive and tasted pretty bad. We felt sorry for our waitress !

In the years my wife and I have been going there we've never really been disappointed. The food has been great at least 98% of the time. The service likewise. They have been very consistent in what they've done.

This is one of our favorite restaurants for an "always delicious," breakfast. Service is always fast, biscuits and gravy are "TO DIE FOR," and omelets are so extraordinary. It kind of looks like a hole-in-the-wall in the strip mall, but it's a consistently delicious meal with consistently fast service. We love it!

Thank cyd d
