I wanted a good brunch and I found it! Had a great time mimosas were delicious and so was the food! We will go back! Also out server was great! It was a blonde hair guy and we went on Sunday. I wish I remembered his name!

Been here twice in the 2 weeks I've lived in NC and we love the environment . First time we went was right around halloween which was fun and the second time we came to sit outside and have a few drinks and a bite. Very kid friendly and great customer service. Food is okay nothing extra special but the drinks keep us coming back. Large beer menu and cocktails are perfectly made! We will be back for sure

Review №3

We came here for my birthday dinner and everything was excellent.The "nachos" were the best appetizer I've ever had -- no joke. The beer selection was excellent. Our waitress was extremely attentive. And the wings were surprisingly good!10/10 would go here again.

We rarely leave reviews but we tried Jekyll & Hyde in Matthews for the first time tonight and WOW. The food was amazing, great portion sizes and hot when brought out. The service was great as well, definitely on top of taking care of the customers and making sure we had what we needed. We will be returning & highly recommend going if you are in Matthews!

Review №5

Nice place. Got the shepherd's pie and it was the best I've ever had. If your into or would like to try English food then this is the spot. It was a bit pricey but trust me the food is worth it and then some.

Review №6

Overall pretty solid. The fries were very good but the flatbread was blah because the crust was pretty bad. Would try again.

Review №7

Trendy and maybe a tad kitschy with all the ladies apparently required to wear corsets, but the food is top notch for a tap house, and the presentation is very nice. Service has always been superb with plenty of attentive staff. Indoor and outdoor seating is offered. The ambiance is fun with a fantasy victorian/steampunk theme, and I'd certainly recommend this as a great date night destination within walking distance of plenty of other attractions like 105 Cigar, Seaboard, etc. The drink menu is also impressive and the house beers I tried are wonderful.

Review №8

It was okay. Waitress was fantastic. Fish was over seasoned and cocktail pretty weak. For the price probably won't go back.

Review №9

Cool atmosphere, good food. Portions can be a bit small but I highly recommend

Review №10

Had a great experience visiting for lunch. Great service and great food. This salad was so good I went back the next week and got another one. Plenty of parking, great atmosphere just an overall awesome place. Thank you.

Review №11

This place is extremely overrated. The theme is cool but the food is bland. Our drinks were awful, it's hard to describe how bad they were to be honest. I can't understand why this place gets so much praise since it is not that good. I personally will not waste my time or money on this place ever again.

Review №12

Extremely long wait. We went for lunch and after receiving drinks from the hostess it was another 15 min before we were even acknowledged by our waitress (Katelyn I believe is what the receipt said) Our waitress passed our table over 15 times and we were checked in on once. Andrew who was not our server checked on us more frequently then our server. He was the saving grace for our experience and I will be trying Jekyll again as long as Andrew is there!

Review №13

The best French Onion soup I have ever had, even better than the soup my husband makes! The risotto he had was PDG too! Service was great as well. Highly recommend.

Review №14

I came here a month ago and our waitress refused to wear a mask. I heard her tell the table next to us that if people didn't like it, they could leave. So I won't be coming back. Other than that the food was good, the drinks were okay. I don't think the food was good enough to justify catching COVID though.

Review №15

Good outdoor seating, which is just key right now. Food is solid but not stellar. Really good beers, though. Overall a good place to get some food and drinks and sit outside. The theme is fun, too.

Review №16

Amy H. was a wealth of knowledge on the beers, food, and the area. (We are planning to move here) What a great place for beer and food!! We will definitely come back!!

Review №17

Will warn u Jack the ripper burger waaaaaaayyyyyyyy bigger than described but taste amazing!!

Review №18

Restaurant decorations are really interesting. Great location and easy access. The waitress took longer than expected to come to our table. The French Onion Burger although well presented did not blew my expectations.

Review №19

Ordered a Apple Pecan Salad for take out. Get home and it's a bowl of lettuce. They forgot the grilled chicken and put maybe 3 cranberries and pecans on it. Terrible. Trying to support businesses during this time but it makes it hard when people can't do their job.

Review №20

Food was excellent! Would highly recommend the Bangers and Mash!

Review №21

The staff was very friendly. The food was incredibly tasty and our attentive waiter made sure our drinks stayed topped off.The prices are a bit steep, at least for lunch. Honestly for the amount and the flavors though it is a great trade off.The atmosphere was a bit loud due to the high ceilings, but overall I had a great experience with my friends.

Review №22

Great place to have a bite to eat and a beer. The have an awesome selection of beer on tap.

Review №23

Went with a group of 9. Everyone had a very pleasant experience. Food was wonderful. Service was very good. Can't wait to go back again.

Review №24

Wonderful staff, amazing food choices (Irish bias) and nice, creative place.Would recommend. Definitely coming again!

Review №25

Pretty decent place! I will return for drinks for an full assessment at a later time...

Review №26

Steak was delicious.Shrimp bruschetta was excellent.Service A1

Review №27

Love the atmosphere and the outdoor seating! A little pricey but worth it for an evening [email protected]

Review №28

I LOVE THIS PLACE! The ambience is amazing. Food n drinks are great. Salads are HUGE. Burger was perfect. Wings are huge and amazing flavors (get em blackened) Truffle fries are to die for.

Review №29

The service and food is great and just the decorations alone are worth going by to see the place.

Review №30

Service was ok. Took forever for the food. I ordered the shrimp po boy sandwich with tater tots. The sandwich was no flavor at all. Tater tots were goodMy son had the soup and sandwich and he wasn't at all impressed

Review №31

Good service and the food is great. The BBQ Chicken flatbread is misleading because it taste more like mustard. So I was disappointed.

Review №32

Great food and drinks! We had our company Thanksgiving party here and they did an awesome job with the food. The staff was super nice and they do a great job with their drinks

Review №33

Amy was super nice and good at service. Belmont is turning up. Love it

Review №34

Nice place to hang out on a Fall Evening. Food took longer than expected to be delivered to table.

Review №35

I would rate this place a 5, but I think a 4 suffices for all the varying level of experiences we have had each time we have visited.The Irish nachos are AMAZING and so is the impossible burger!A few times we had to find someone to seat us, really odd, even after the waiters have seen us.The place is a really cool, and great selection of drinks / beers... outdoor patio is nice is relatively packed on the weekends..

Review №36

Super staff, excellent food and a cool steampunk vibe. Bartender patiently explained and demonstrated how they make the smoke infused drinks. Can't wait to go back!

Review №37

Great service. Highly recommend the Guinness Onion Soup.

Review №38

Great service and atmosphere but really mediocre food and drink. Better options close by.

Review №39

I stopped by after buying my Tesla right down the road to get lunch before heading back home. First impression was the beautiful artwork and design of the restaurant. The staff were incredibly friendly as well. I ordered the hamburger with candied bacon and a fried egg and it was absolutely spectacular. They offered all sorts of delicious looking breakfast menu items as well. Highly recommended! If I ever find myself in the area again, I'll definitely be stopping by.

Review №40

First time here. Huge menu. Lots of beer choices. Excellent service. The Fish and Chips are spot on, as are the Bangers & Mash. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the Bangers and Mash. The Jack the Ripper burger is incredible. I highly recommend Jekyll and Hyde Tap House.

Review №41

We just moved to Matthews and wanted to try something fun and cool. We definitely got that! We ordered the Risotto and chicken and the shepherds pie, both dishes were absolutely amazing. The ambiance was cozy, our server Brienna was so sweet and very informative. We will definitely be back!

Review №42

Came here late at night for some usual delicious food. We appreciate how this economy has taken a hit just now and forgot that they couldn't do dine in! But they were more than helpful and made me and my wife some of their amazing Burgers to take home!! Keep this place busy and eat some Jekyll and Hyde Burgers for your quarantine party!!!

Review №43

Make sure you check out this steam punk restaurant with fantastic cocktails! I would recommend going Thursday night for half price cocktails. Jeff was wonderful and great food fun vibe from this place. Also fantastic brunch!

Review №44

Had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon in October with my wife and one of my sons. The restaurant is decorated in steampunk and because it was nearing Halloween, there were zombie mannequins. I had the mushroom and Swiss burger and the bun had the restaurant logo seared onto it and it was good, but not the best I have ever had. My wife had the grilled cheese which was really good, and my son had the chicken tenders which he said were really good as well. The house made chips are as good as some others I have had but not the best. The prices are a bit high ($12 for a grilled cheese, $17 for a 7oz sirloin) and the wait staff is attentive without being intrusive. Definitely would stop in again.

Review №45

Great beer selection. Good food , great cocktails.

Review №46

Outdoors eating great food and service!!!

Review №47

Great atmosphere, food and beer. Will definitely be back!

Review №48

Great food, Grilled Grouper with wild rice and chopped salad

Review №49

50 or so taps, featuring many local beers. I had a flight of 4 and it was very good. From PBR to Barrel aged Imperial Stout they have it all. Also an awesome menu. I had French Toast, AMAZING! I will be back.

Review №50

OMG what delicious food. Kudos to the chef, I had the most butter like, flavorful, mouth watering, Filet Mignon. The rest of my family was equally pleased with their meal. I had no trouble swapping out a potato for a salad. This is one of my favorite go to restaurants. And I'll tell you why. There was a giant TV board in the restaurant for everybody to see and it didn't have a sports game on. I love this. It had the wine, beer, and events list. Did you know they do brunch? There was one TV, but my husband couldn't necessarily watch it. . He was forced to talk to his family at the dinner table. Lol. If I had my way I would remove that TV too. My server was ELIJAH. I want someone to give him a raise. Super personable. Very attentive. And I learned a little bit about him, because he took the moments to communicate with his customers. Servers are just not there to serve us. They are people too with stories making a living. They also have an open kitchen. I love this. I love seeing what's going on in the kitchen. So I noticed one of the cooks with food prep gloves on his hands touching things and used his cell phone. And guess what, he changed his gloves! Before he started working on food again, he changed his gloves. A+++. Give him a raise too! On another note whether it was Elijah or someone else, I ended up dropping my scarf behind at the table. And guess what .. no one stole it and took it home! Honesty. It was handed in and I was able to get it the next day. The restaurant was filling up quickly while we were there. And the next day when my husband went to get my scarf, he said the place was packed. Both of us noticed on both days there weren't any kids. There is also a rear parking lot/entrance with plenty of parking. Now the one small negative..... The chairs are a popular trendy metal industrial style and not accommodating, nor comfortable for average/larger bottoms.There are some booth seats in this particular case. But none of us in my family found the chairs to be comfortable and we all have different sized bottoms. We moved our seat to a booth bench for this reason. (Hubby got stuck with the chair. Lol.) The only reason that we would not eat here on any particular night would be if we had to sit in one of those chairs.

Review №51

Great burgers and a steak sandwich that is incredible!

Review №52

Drinks were great! Food amazing!

Review №53

The lunch fish sandwich was great. Delicious homemade chips and everyone nice and crisp.

Review №54

Wanted to try out a "new to us" restaurant and found this treat. Great beer selection, delicious food, and very friendly wait staff. I just wish we would have found this restaurant sooner!

Review №55

We were impressed with J & H. Ate here early on a Wednesday night because we heard it gets very busy. I had the fish fry, wife had a cheeseburger, kids had their go-to meal of mac and cheese.Fish fry -- one of the best I've had. I'm somewhat of a fish fry connoisseur, and I was quite impressed with this offering. Two giant pieces of haddock, cooked perfectly and the tartar was excellent. A bit expensive at $15 (but the portion could easily be two meals if you're looking to share) and the beer batter was a tad salty.Cheeseburger -- great quality meat, excellent bun, cooked as ordered.Mac and cheese - nothing fancy, but the kids ate all of it.Every meal came with lattice chips (see attached pic) and they were delicious.Wife got risotto as a side with her burger, and it stole the show. Great flavor, cooked al dente, just absolutely perfect.Excellent experience. Great service. Looking forward next time to trying one of their 50 beers on tap. Request: please get NoDa Jam Session, most local places have it.

Review №56

Service was great and we loved the food.

Review №57

Great food and service with a great selection on adult beverages!

Review №58

Great service, very quaint. Loved the "library" and the whole ambiance

Review №59

Jeckyll & Hyde was definitely a fantastic experience. The Jack the Ripper Burger was LIT my friends! Hold please while I make your mouth water - two half pound patties nestled on a butter toasted bun with bacon tucked under. To top it off, you got melted cheese oozing out from all angles (which there are no angles on a circular patty) it's got like this jalapeño beer cheese all over with banana peppers sprinkled on top. TALK ABOUT FLAVOR EXPLOSION! Aside from that, the service was great, all the apps my team tried were fantastic and everyone enjoyed their experience!

Review №60

So happy we gave this place a try. It was packed but it was first come first serve out on the patio and since it was a beautiful night so worked great . Saturday night there was traffic noise and the music was very loud when we asked our waiter Pete to turn it down he did so gladly and that made it better. Pete himself was friendly, efficient, and very attentive. Every item we ordered was outstanding and such a delightful surprise. The ahi tuna was cooked to perfection and the sauce on the salad was amazing! The shepherds pie was thick and meaty. The steak covered the flatbread. Portions were large enough and prices are standard.

Review №61

Food is Melt in your mouth Delicious, Service is excellent, and the Atmosphere there is Very Cozy

Review №62

Very nice, clean and friendly. Food was great. I had the chopped BLT salad.

Review №63

Service was fantastic! Really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We started with pretzel sticks with a mustard cheese dip which was super good. Definitely try the guinness french onion soup, it was delicious! I had the grilled cheese and truffle fries for my entree and my boyfriend loved the jekyll burger with pimento cheese. Enjoyed our visit for sure!

Review №64

I recently visited for dinner with someone who had a great lunch experience here. We were both disappointed. While the wait staff was responsive, the food was sub-par and lacked attention to detail. Though I may try this place again for cocktails, I am not inclined to return for dinner.The fried pickle batter was super super salty. Fried pickles are supposed to be salty, but this was nearly inedible. We sent it back.I ordered the "Hyde's Old Fashioned" (Woodford Reserve, Fresh Blackberries & Blueberries, Orange Bitters, & Garnished with blueberries and an Orange Rind). If you like a classic Old Fashioned, don't bother with this as it lacks the bitter-sweet contrast of the cherry and falls flat. I blame myself for this decision, not necessarily the bar.The shepherd's pie entree was recommended to me yet was served lukewarm and the tops were not browned. It was sent back for warming, but still not browned. It was flavorful, but the lack of attentiveness is not worth what we paid.Again, the server did a fine enough job, but if one item much less two items are sent back, you'd expect the Manager to check on the guests and yet there was no follow-up. The whole experience screamed of missed opportunity and mediocrity. Honestly, I really hope the owners read this and take action.

Review №65

Creme brulee French toast was delicious!

Review №66

So wonderful, had a great time at Jekyll & Hyde Taphouse and Grill in Matthews, NC. Can't wait till they open in Belmont, NC. I will definitely be sharing with the Tampa Bay Steampunk Society. The Blonde Stout from Rock Hill, SC was delicious.

Review №67

The variety of options made my choice difficult. I chose the chicken rosatto and was extremely pleased with my choice! Worth the $

Review №68

Food was excellent, wait staff on top of everythingPotato soup and onion soups were beyond expectations. Best we have ever had. Burger was cooked to perfection!

Review №69

Never disappoint. The food is amazing and the people are great. The steaks are always on point. I highly recommend this place. Great atmosphere!

Review №70

Excellent food and a diverse amount of beers. Only thing I would ask is that the staff bring the kids food out first and not last. That should be standard but I didn't specify this request so I won't hold it against everything else that was excellent. Alexandria did an excellent job as our server. Very professional and polite to my family and our young children.

Review №71

Loved the fried pimento cheese balls, but the $16 salad wasn't memorable, one piece of chicken was fatty which resulted in a turn off of eating any more.

Review №72

Great atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food! Had the Jalepeño burger with onion rings. Onion rings batter was crunchy and fantastic! Great beer selection, too

Review №73

I come in to enjoy a drink or two every week on Mondays. Felisha is always here with a smile and great service. She is one of the very best.

Review №74

The atmosphere, service, and food are outstanding!! I will continue to return!!

Review №75

Very nice and upscale!! Went for drinks and sat outside on the patio.. bartender offered to turn on heat and that made the experience even better!! Highly recommend.

Review №76

My wife and I went out with another couple who has been raving about this restaurant. I had the Brekkie burger with truffle fries and my wife had the Jekyll burger with onion rings and we both really enjoyed the food. The burgers were cooked perfectly how we ordered and the taste was well balanced and flavorful. We also tried some of their unique drinks which were tasty.The only thing that knocked off a star for me is the food came out in waves. So some people received their food while others were just sitting there waiting in awkwardness.But with that, I definitely want to come back here again to sample more food and libations and have them earn back that last star.

Review №77

It was good but I wanted it to be better. I like the atmosphere and the location and it looks like such a cool place but both times I went were just okay. I'd go back but it's not the top of the list.

Review №78

I like the restaurant. They just take a while to get you started ordering. Waited 25 minutes for some water or something. Never got the water. It's all good though I'll try again some other time.

Review №79

Good food, good service! English breakfast!

Review №80

Atmosphere was great as well as service!! I was very disappointed in the flavor of my burger. I had such high hopes. I got the jack the ripper the meat was cooked well but there just wasn't any bang flavor and it didn't even have the jalapenos! I would have complained but my friends swore I was reading the wrong burgers description... And now that I look at the menu again I do see there was supposed to be jalapenos on it. I couldn't even tell it had cheese for that much meat there should of been at least 2 slices. Any how my personal opinion don't get the $17 burger

Review №81

Delicious food. Reasonably priced for the amount you get. Servers are excellent and atmosphere is vibrant and fun.And this drink (Smokey Revolver) was FABULOUS!

Review №82

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The food was excellent. We will definitely be returning.

Review №83

The salmon was the best I've ever had. So good!

Review №84

Great service and delicious food.

Review №85

The best Bloody Mary in the area, great staff

Review №86

Love the food, atmosphere great. Expensive but great quality of food. Waitress was awesome. Wonderful warm fall day sitting outside enjoying the sun and my love.

Review №87

Good food and good service. There bar and patio area are really cool. Irish nachos are my favorite.

Review №88

Good food and service but so many flies. It was distracting.

Review №89

What a joke! The bar tenders refused to serve a friend of mine but then didn't even serve me! Even though they said, we know you are okay! Unbelievable!

Review №90

Good for a burger and a beer. Space is a little tight. Would be good to pull a couple tables out.

Review №91

Been coming here since it opened and it just keeps getting better! Great people, fantastic food equals phenomenal service. If 6 Stars were an option Frank, Kristine, Bree and the Jekyll & Hyde team would get my vote.

Review №92

Love this place! A new go to for me!

Review №93

Pricey but fun

Review №94

Good service couldn't overcome subpar food - friendly and efficient wait staff and accommodating manager but the food was below expectations. In past the fish & chips were a sure go-to favorite. This time Mrs Paul's would've been an improvement. Hoping for better in future

Review №95

Great service from Lauren and Jessica! Very knowledgeable about all the beer we had questions about. Food was awesome...

Review №96

Great place, food and steampunk atmosphere. Our server was phenomenal, wish I had remembered his name. We each had a different style burger, everyone enjoyed, was full and quite satisfied another perk was fantastic desserts. We originally had a party of 4, my son was able to meet us, there were no issues switching tables to accommodate us.

Review №97

Great food, great atmosphere. food was out quick and tasted great. Had elijah as a waiter, he was very knowledgeable about the menu and recommended a great draft. Will be coming again!

Review №98

Honestly impressed. Gave them a second chance and thoroughly enjoyed every sip and bite. Highly recommend the truffle fries and Guinness onion soup.

Review №99

This is absolutely my new favorite. Staff was great, menu is amazing, and food was the atmosphere. Definitely a new favorite, the Sheppards pie is is a must try, the (cant remember the name exactly) jack burger??? It was huge, I had to cut it down with a knife that it came with. Best burger I've had in a long time

Review №100

Food is very good. Waiter had to be flagged down to get us more drinks. I really dislike that. It was not busy so waiter should have been more attentive to that instead of talking by the kitchen.
