The Melting Pot - MadisonThe Melting Pot - Madison

Fondue | Middleton, Madison

We came down for ladies night on our way to a conference in Madison. I had been to a Melting Pot, but the 4 others with me had not. I was so excited to share this experience with them. Besides the delicious food at a great price ($26.95 for a 4 Course on Ladies Night) our server Megan, was Ah-mazing. Megan made sure we had time to talk and didn't rush us through our meal. She had great suggestions for us and was fun to be around. She got our humor and went with it. I'd definitely ask for her again! My friends are still raving about their experience 2 days later. We will definitely be back! Maybe a new tradition as we head to this conference yearly! Hopefully Megan will be there too! More

Sushi | Madison, Madison

The food was amazing. Our reservation was early, 6:00pm. It was not busy and we got seated at a table for 2. The hostess sat another couple right next to us even though there were plenty of tables available. The couple even apologized that they ended up right next to us. The whole time we heard what they were talking about and they heard what we were talking about. It was really uncomfortable and unnecessary. More

Tex Tubb's Taco PalaceTex Tubb's Taco Palace

Tex-Mex | Madison, Madison

He’s a solid citizen with talent and charm. To our good fortune he just happens to hail from Texas and he can cook and he can sing. And he loves to do both. That’s how Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace came to be. It’s where his two worlds collide. It’s informal, friendly, casual, rustic, chaotic, comfortable, affordable, and fun. A joint, a bar with great food, authentic food. It’s his home away from home, it’s his palace.More

Discover Madison

Surrounded by lakes, Madison is also home to an amazing variety of cuisines. Fish fry, steak, and pasta are all local favorites that you can enjoy with a view of the lake and a bottle of fine wine. However, Swiss, French, Spanish, and Italian cuisines are also widely available around the city. Whether or not you follow a vegetarian or gluten-free diet, you'll definitely want to try the award-winning falafel, which you can find just north of downtown. Be sure to also stop by one of Madison's dairy bars, which serve far more than just a handful of cheese-centric dishes.
