Our Story

Matt Denny's Ale House has been in Arcadia since 1999. We are a family style restaurant and pub and a great place for lunch or dinner. We offer salads, sandwiches, smoked meats, pasta, ribs, steaks, chicken and seafood. We offer a full bar, moderately priced wines and 28 different draught beers. We specialize in independently brewed beer and support many of our local breweries. This is where the locals come for great food and conversation. We have TV's for the sports, but we keep the sound down unless it is a big game. Stop by for a pint.

Established in 1888.
Matt Denny was the only son of an Irish Sea Captain. Most of Matt Denny's childhood was spent running back and forth between the eastern seaboard and the Caribbean. Born on Key West, and schooled in the deep water ports of the warm Caribbean seas, Matt loved the colors and the flavors of these tropical playgrounds. By the age of fourteen, Matt was working as a cook at the only place to eat in Pirate's Cove, Jimmy Havana Day Dream. Matt's family was lost at sea in the Bermuda Triangle. so Matt decided to leave the Caribbean and try his luck in Mexico. He opened a cantina with a friend where pirates bought and sold hard to get cargo. He moved from the Caribbean to Mexico and then to the Pacific Northwest. Today we use the same recipes that Matt Denny developed during his lifetime.
