Arrived about 1PM and knew we were going out for dinner at 6 so we did not want a huge lunch. We decided to split the roast beef sandwich with fries. a great choice, the road beef was moist and tasty with sautéed onions and melted cheese on a large tasty bun. A good portion of home made fries, perfect.... More

When we go to Stratford, we always eat several meals at Madelyn's. This place is local. We've been there when one of the stars of the Stratford Festival was seated at a nearby table. This trip, one of our servers was Madelyn's son-in-law. The many varieties of breakfast include home-fried potatoes that seem more baked than fried. (Definitely not greasy).... More

My wife & I went so see a play in Stratford, Ont. last weekend(Shakespeare in Love), and decided to try Madelyn's Diner for dinner. I was really glad we had the "dinner experience" at Madelyn's. Although it seemed the menu was geared to those 60+ years old, the menu was quite diverse, was all fresh & homemade(including all the pies),... More

Make no mistake, this is a no frills diner, but I had the best smoked porkchop ever here. I was advised to have the fish and chips and saw others doing so, but I had been told that the area was known for the pork products produced locally so when I saw the smoked chop, just had to try and... More

I was wowed by the fab taste of the pecan butter tart. My banquet burger, fries and gravy, accompanied with excellent creamy cole slaw was also very good in this modest diner. My wife's and sister-in-law's fish and chips were also very fresh, crispy and delish. This diner comes highly recommended, yet not expensive. It is very popular and crowded... More

This was one of my favourite breakfast spots in town. Good affordable eats, lots of coffee, a current newspaper of some sorts and good service. Tarts are a superb bonus!

Ok, it's a diner and the atmosphere is Formica and seat yourself, not gourmet. But the fish and chips were good (light batter, home-cut fries, creamy coleslaw) and the Humungous Fish special with cheese was enjoyed by another member of our group. We shared a piece of blueberry pie which was just okay (crust was a little thick and chewy).... More

I've come here for breakfast a few times and it is always really good. I did come for lunch once and had a Caesar salad and it was good too. The atmosphere is not too great. I would come back for breakfast again.
