The food was bland. The bread basket and the baked potato were the best part of the meal. Our server Riley was awesome!

Griffin was our waiter and he was very sweet and gave us really good service. This is my second visit to Madonna Inn, this place is a lot of fun. The food I thought was better the first time I came. Everything was on a much smaller level this time not sure what happened. We got the steak plates which were about 52.00 per plate, and when the dish was brough out I was disappointed because everything was so small. We each had 2 sparagus, super dinny potatoes, and the steak.. not sure why the resturant was not that busy. The waiter was the best part, we spent 235.00 on food and another 120 at the gift shopp.

One of the best restaurant experiences I have had! Mindy made us feel extremely welcome and was very knowledgeable in the menu for food and drink. Nate was very welcoming and kind as well! Would absolutely recommend to anyone.

We had the most amazing experience here. The food was cooked to perfection, the noise level was perfect, the waitress was the kindest, sweetest woman, her name was Jamie J, she was attentive but gave us enough time to talk and eat our meal. We will 100% come back here when we visit again.

We had a fantastic time! Our waitress Mindy was amazing. She moved our seats so we could sit next to each other and never made a fuss. She was always cheerful and never rushed us. We made “friends” with the diners around us and Mindy helped us sneak the check away from the young couple sitting next to us celebrating their anniversary so we could pay for their meal. It was so much fun! The cocktails were yummy as was the steak and lobster. Watching some of the people swing dance was a hoot. Thank you to the staff for really efficient service and making it a night for the books.

Our steaks had way too much fat. They were very tough and the mushrooms were not fresh. It was way too expensive for the quality

Great anniversary dinner, I had the fillet and lobster tail, my steak was cooked a perfect medium rare. We shared the champagne cake, and it's so beautiful there, also the bar is great, and even the restrooms are pretty!

Splendid experience. Filet mignon was the best! The way they grill your steak-just salt and pepper-I think this is how steaks should be done! I really loved it!

Griffin was our waiter and we appreciate his enthusiasm and attentiveness to our meal visiting the Madonna Inn and eating in the steakhouse is a experience that should definitely be on people's list while it is not for everyone with regard to the ambiance and setting it is a classic that must be experienced and appreciated for what it is

Our first time here, pleasantly surprised. Love the rose color and flower themed throughout the hotel and restaurant. A fun and whimsical feel, just makes you feel happy inside. We enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and pork entree and, of course, we had to try the champagne cake (cake is not our go-to dessert) it was good. The service was excellent and very attentive. Looking forward to coming back soon.....

The menu and options were excellent. My husband's filet and lobster tail was outstanding. The baked potato was "the way a potato should be" My prime rib was not the quality cut I would expect for the price. The flavors were good but it was very stringy and hard to cut.
The atmosphere was lovely and so much fun. We really appreciated the care our server gave us and the slice of anniversary cake was a lovely surprise.

So much fun! Ambiance obviously, drinks were great, steaks were really good. I’d say the medium-rare was a bit too rare for my boyfriends liking, but the flavor was really good.

Thanks for the birthday cake slice too! :)

Kitschy cute decor, friendly service and yummy food. I had the filet mignon and it was amazing!! (Though I admit I haven’t had steak in years so take that with a grain of salt. ) Hubs had salmon and regretted it. It was mushy in the middle. Should’ve gone for steak. The famous pink cake was tasty! We took off a point for the fact that at the end, a customer took to the mic to sing and it killed the vibe. I’m sure it was fun for them but not for the rest of us. Lol

The Filet was tough and not as tasty as you would expect from a top steak house. Everything else was excellent.
