The ambience is second to none. But the food was subpar, especially for the price.

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation. We were asked to wait for the table to be set. While we waited four couples arrived without reservations and were seated immediately. At 5:10, I finally asked if there was a reason for the delay in seating us??? We were overlooked by three hostesses at the front desk. I’ve never been ignored like this at Alex’s before!!!

Went to Madonna Inn in December of 2019. Fabulous meal and excellent service. Everyone loved their entrees. We just went again for my birthday and took the family. No one enjoyed their meal and in fact , no one ate it. My sons pork chop was way under done. Husbands fried chicken was super dry. I had the manager look at the pork chop and his response was, did u order underdone? Who orders underdone?! Won’t be back until they get better chefs and servers back. Probably in a year. Too bad. Was really looking forward to the birthday dinner .

The food is why I won’t come back. Shrimp cocktail was very watered down. Frozen shrimp thawed out for 20 bucks. The sides to the steak were terrible. Wilted lettuce and a baked potato that was so over cooked all I got was sour cream and butter. Not good quality food. Very sad. Cake was good thou. But only had two dessert options out 17. Sad again.

It was our first time staying at the Madonna Inn, and we all were looking forward to the dinning experience at The Steak House. Our server was BEYOND amazing. And the ambiance was awesome. The food for the price on the other hand, not so much. Our garlic bread was cold in the middle, and our entree wasn’t good, undercooked asparagus, the fish was overcooked. It just wasn’t what we were expecting for the price we paid. But I will say, the cake was beyond delicious and so were the mushroom appetizer! This won’t stop us from coming back, but we’ll stick to the cafe next time.

My best friend and I were staying at Madonna Inn and made reservations for 5pm. We were greeted promptly and seated within 10 minutes of arriving. Our waitress, Ashlee, went above and beyond and made our experience amazing. We weren’t very hungry and had decided to split the Rib Eye Steak entree. The steak was tender and had so much flavor.

It was our 41st anniversary and we enjoyed our dinner. We had our 1st anniversary dinner there 41 yrs ago. I was planning to have the steak n lobster but the price was too high. When we were ordering the waitress said steak n lobster were on on special 30% for $69.00. So we both ordered it. Filet mignon and lobster was a hit. They also brought us a slice of the Pink Champagne cake which was also delicious as no other. Waitress was very courteous. Thank you for a lovely evening!

We come back each year for our anniversary. The atmosphere is always wonderful. The service is spectacular. The cakes are fabulous. Usually my wife and I get a steak, this time we went for the BBQ chicken and were not as impressed with it. Loved the salad and baked potato.

We stayed at the hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary and decided to eat at the restaurant. It was beyond amazing. The French Filet Mignon was incredible, our waitress Alli was super attentive. She even gave us a slice of the famous pink champagne cake to celebrate. We’re thinking of coming back for Christmas if they’re open!!

We planned a dinner to celebrate my parents 65 Wedding anniversary. We were so happy we were able to be seated inside the dining room. There were 9 of us. Service was great. First time eating at the steak house. I highly recommend it! The steaks were cooked perfectly, our table had filets and ribeye, the seasoning was delicious. I thought the pricing was very reasonable, you are not charged separately for your sides. We finished the dinner with cakes I had ordered ahead, they brought them to the table for pictures and then cut and served them. The chocolate and the champagne cakes were amazing. They were very COVID compliant.

Rib eye was NOT good. The flavor and texture was off. The lemonade tasted like water, the milkshake was disgusting, overall experience was a low. The decor is the only highlight.

Family dinner at Alex Madonna's Gold Rush Steak House was amazing! The kids loved! I had the special of the night which was a filet mignon and lobster tail, it was absolutely delicious. We were celebrating my birthday and they went above and beyond to make sure that the night was special. We spent the weekend at the coast kayaking, hiking and playing at the beach but my favorite part of the whole trip was family dinner at the Madonna Inn. Thank you, it was a birthday that I'll always remember.

Completrmentrary wine plate was a nice touch. But celery and carrots gotta go if I'm spending $50 on an entree. Side salad was overdressed but forgivable. Server was nice and punctual, but nothing too impressive. Again, expected more especially if I'm racking up a tab. Overall, great experience and good timing from reservation, drinks, food, and service.
