Server was wonderful but service poor. Waited almost an hour for orders, food arrived cold. Loved the ambiance but disappointed that our guests couldn’t love the food too.

We had visited the lobby area and gift shops a few days before.
After reviewing the menus and the uniqueness of the cafe, we decided to enjoy a meal there.
We were skeptical of what to expect considering that the Inn is such a tourist destination.
Well we’re we’re wrong the food and service was outstanding. The ladies salads were huge and fresh. My turkey brown was just as delicious!
We had pieces of cake to go on our first visit. But there there was no way we could enjoy after such a filling meal!
Also we were able to sit in one of the unique booths after we asked the hostess if we could. She was very accommodating and cleaned one herself !

Food was good. Service just ok. There were 8 of us. 5 meals were served, then a few minutes later 2 meals were served. The last meal served was for a very hungry child. It would have been nice to have that meal served first.

Sitting in the pink Gold Rush Steakhouse was like time travel to a more opulent, pattern obsessed time. The wait staff was overly efficient - almost to the point of being abrupt. Our waiter actually passed our plates to us from across the table. They seemed to be in a hurry, but did not rush us to leave. The hostess was very accommodating & helpful. All in our party enjoyed their brunch food. Enjoyed our brunch there!

Honestly, skip this and go to the Denny’s or IHOP down the street. Coffee was burned, and the food was so mediocre we didn’t even finish it. I think the bacon was microwaved. The food probably hasn’t changed since the Madonna opened in the 50s, but the prices certainly have — $55 for a very bad breakfast for two.

Staff was kind, but forgetful and confused. We were charged for things we didn’t order, and didn’t get sides that we did. Hopefully they can put some effort into the place and make it something worth while, but for now it’s definitely not.

Used to be our go to spot anytime we were passing through, would even make special trips or detour just to stop. This time was different. Service, food, and cakes just wasn't what it used to be, made me sad bc I purposely chose to eat here.

Piece of steak, over cooked, on an almost dry piece of bread with nothing else. Except fries. $30+ was ridiculous.

We stayed at the hotel for our 1 year wedding anniversary and it was everything and more! The service in EVERY part of the hotel was perfect. The food was fresh and so delicious! The desserts were HUGE! Definitely a must try. Also thank you to every staff member who made our anniversary special. Can’t wait to go back next year!

We had a very nice early dinner with friends. Tawny was our waitress and was excellent. She gave us plenty of time to order, checked on us frequently and was very friendly. My Reuben sandwich was the best one I have ever had. Pastrami was so tender and the cheese extra gooey! It was so nice being able to eat inside again!

We had breakfast on Sunday morning (04/18/21) and the restaurant was real busy. We had reservations so were seated within a few minutes. We sat in a booth in the bar area and our waiter had several tables plus serving those who were seated at the bar. He did a great job given how busy he was. All our food was good. Definitely worth eating here.

I recommend you just stop by for dessert, which is what they’re known for. There were a handful of folks waiting in the bakery line, and rightfully so. The chocolate cream pie was amazing and so light and airy. Our entrees, however, were the worst Monte Cristo’s we’ve ever had (extremely eggy and dripping oil).

No special menu for Easter holiday. Our server was so obviously fake nice. She needs a lesson on how to be sincere. A little less fakeness and a lot more sincere is definitely better. Also, unable to get folrt mignon on a holiday until 4pm. We have had several very bad experiences since covid. One more try and if it isnt great, no more Madonna Inn.

I am local and have been coming to Madonna Inn for 50 years. I have watched the food decline over the the years. My Eggs Benedict had fried eggs instead of poached. For the price they charge it should have been perfect! One of the most disappointing visits we had and we brought friends since it was Easter, so I didn’t want to complain!

Sandwich price unexpectedly high.
Salad was good
Men’s bathroom right side sink put out high water flow and splashed all over the vanity top... and me.
We will return but probably try the steak house
