Rib Eye Steak
Due to this steak's unique marbling, you will find the Rib Eye tender and juicy!
Our most popular steak. So tender you can almost cut it with a fork
Served with choice of Baked Potato or Rice Pilaf
A lovely dining experience. Our second time staying at the Madonna Inn and eating at the Gold Rush Steak House. A perfect evening with amazing food and superb service. Of course, the atmosphere is always beautiful. Can’t wait to return.
Having 3 birthday celebrants gathered together with friends in good Ambience and excellent service, the party was an exceptional 👌. I can't wait for future night's with guests coming different City and State.
Great service ! Love the decoration for Christmas time.
Our evening at the Madonna Gold Rush Steakhouse was to celebrate a Birthday. We had a fantastic experience and a very enjoyable time. They had started decorating for Christmas, which added to the ambiance. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding, especially for Alli taking the extra steps to make our evening very memorable. Thanks to all we came into contact at Madonna's that evening.
I went to Madonna for my Birthday dinner and it was amazing. The experience here is always above and beyond.
Food and service were both amazing. The cheese board was to die for.
The waiter was excellent would totally recommend. The cakes are fantastic. Overall enjoyed the experience.
Was a birthday dinner. My filet was not good. Thus the lower review. Baked potato was really good.
We were greeted immediately by the hostess and seated quickly. Our server Alli was very accommodating in taking care of us! The food was excellent, cooked just right, so we couldn’t be happier with our date night at Madonna’s.
Jamie was our waitress she was amazing. It was clean, delicious and we had a wonderful date night. The surf and turf was so good!
The wait staff was very attentive and paid attention to details. I went to celebrate a birthday, so getting the pink balloon and complimentary pink cake was such a pleasant surprise.
Couldn't be better. We went there knowing what we would get and we were not disappointed.
Wonderful Dinner at the Gold Rush Steakhouse. Great Guest Service from the Friendly Greeting and our Server Ashlee and Attendant Marco. Food was prepared to Perfection. It's always a treat to return to the Madonna Inn and experience a level of service that has been maintained over many years. Thanks for another memorable experience.
Great food, and great service. Would definitely visit again soon!
Great food, friendly, professional staff and quick service. No complaints.
It was my birthday and our server Melissa was fantastic. Give her a raise!!!
Beautiful eccentric place! We’re locals and we know ppl come from all over to stay and/or enjoy our local jewel. Sometimes we forget how special it can be! Celebrated my daughters 9th birthday on a Thursday evening. Busy but very chill atmosphere. Tables only 60%full(not sure if covid or just a weekday). Hostess welcomed us immediately and were seated without hesitation. Waitress was very kind and answered all our questions. And had no problem sharing plates with the young ones. Matre D was on top of our drinks and took empty plates away almost immediately. They even gave our daughter a pink birthday balloon! Two steak dinners, three drinks from the bar and 4 regular drinks came to about $140 w/o tip. Wonderful service and food!
Delicious food, incredible cake, and wonderful service!
The appetizers were lovely, potato fingerlings in truffle oil and sea salt-yum. The rest of the dinner was awful. $70 for a raw fillet, like cold in the middle. I swear the asparagus was canned. We also tried the famous champagne cake- 2 bites and trashed the rest.
I felt the service provided by our wait staff, Ashlee, and others, was outstanding. The steak was superb, as were the pasta and salmon. The swordfish was tender and cooked just right, but it had no flavor. Soup and salads were tasty. Desert choices were overwhelming. Pricey, but we would go back.
Delicious food, large portions, gorgeous surroundings, great service: definitely recommended!
The service was amazing, they helped us celebrate our anniversary and made the night very special. This is a beautiful restaurant, it was our first time going and we will definitely be back!
Took my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. No problem making a reservation, arrived on-time and promptly seated. Jamie, our server brought a pink celebratory balloon to our table, and we immediately ordered. My wife enjoyed the Sand Dabs dinner and I had Prime Rib. Both meals were excellent, and Jamie brought us a complimentary piece of Toffee Cake for dessert. As a Cal Poly student back in the 1980's, I enjoyed bringing my friends, my parents, my wife and family to the Madonna Inn through the years. Now, forty years later, it's still the best dining experience!
The ambience is second to none. But the food was subpar, especially for the price.
We had a nice dinner. Service was excellent and Covid protocol followed by all. We will return.
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!!!
This was the perfect place to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary!!
Great service, even surprised us with a complimentary slice of their famous champagne cake!!
We had a lovely dinner for my moms birthday, they made it special. Delicious food.
The food and atmosphere was amazing as always! Was a little disappointed with the fact that they were out cake and it was my birthday and the server was less than enthused with my disappointment.
Amazing food and service!
Our server Ashlee was absolutely incredible- helpful- honest and lovely to chat with. She made a lifelong dream of going to dine at Madonna an even fonder cherished memory.
Nice and so attentive
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 .
So good. Great food, great service.
Maybe it was COVID but everything was ok not great
Great experience with amazing food and wine.
Amazing food. Amazing staff.
The waitress was awesome she made sure we had everything we need it. She came back to check on us about 3 times. The food was hot and tasted awesome.
I highly recommend the fillet mignon. Their soups are fantastic as well.
