Had lunch at Madison's. Very nice outside setting. Chicken salad was wonderful as was the pulled pork. Tomato soup with rosemary was very good. Service was excellent.

Great Location in Old Historic Part ofHotel, center of town. Service was very good, friendly staff. Food was tasty but unexpected fancy farm to table with less than hearty portions! Salads was very fresh and tasty, main course really good but really fancy with very small portions, I had hanger steak, I'm guessing 3-4 ounces with Brussel sprouts 1 1/2... More

My boyfriend ordered scallops that was really salty. I ordered trout that tasted not fresh. For $23.00, you get a quarter of the fish (filleted) I was wondering maybe they could not keep the fresh seafood. I would recommend eating poultry or red meat instead.

Outstanding cuisine; good service; and great location! The restaurant is a great place to dine on special occasions. It is a part of Old Edwards Inn.

Stayed at Old Edwards Inn and Spa for two nights. Each time we stay there we always reserve one of our dining evenings for Madison's. Never disappointed, the wait staff is always very knowledgeable. They describe the menu items and can answer any questions you may have. You will always have a 5 star dining experience.

We enjoyed a great and filling breakfast here this morning. This service is quick, efficient, and friendly. Cups of coffee are very big and tea is served French press. There are lots of choices for breakfast including southern style or very healthy. A great ambience in the restaurant as well.
