    Madison’s is a must when visiting Highland’s. Whether it’s The Wine Garden for lunch or fine dining at night, you won’t be disappointed. They are there to please every step of the way. Making reservations as soon as you expect to be in Highlands is a good idea.

    Always Enjoy Madison’s for lunch by the window. The pimento cheese is delicious as well as the drinks.

    We dined here as a party of 4 on a Friday. First, the ambiance is very nice and swanky. We had excellent service from our server who was very attentive throughout the evening. The brussels and apple salad was the best thing I ate all night! I also won the table voted “best meal” with my pork chop. The truffle fries were luke warm with no parmesan. The meatloaf entree was more like a soft Salisbury steak rather than traditional meatloaf. The carrots that accompanied the meatloaf were less than desirable. The Wagyu strip was exceptionally tough and hard to chew. The seafood special was underwhelming with odd texture in the red fish and shrimp. Bread service was fair. Old fashioned was voted the best of the trip! Ended the night with the order ahead skillet cookie that came out burned and flavorless. The peanut butter cheesecake was good! Ended up spending nearly $500 total for the table with overall an unsatisfied feeling. We may give them another try in the future, but the value simply isn’t what you would expect.

    We ate at Madison’s twice during our stay at Old Edward’s, and both times were FABULOUS! Our servers were attentive, the atmosphere was lovely and the food was just delicious. We ordered completely different menu items upon our second reservation, and everything we had was top notch. My only comment would be that the restaurant was a tad warm at our first reservation (visited during May), but at our second reservation we sat near the window and the fresh air was much nicer. An overall great experience and a must try when in Highlands.
