Menu is varied with good daily specials. Beer selection is extensive, but we found they were out of several of the listed drafts. Expect a wait for your meal which is a not bad thing if you plan ahead. Food is good quality, generous portions but a bit on the pricey side (could be Covid related). Good place for kids as it is a noisy bar scene.

Ehh. It’s my 3rd time three. All three times the food was great, but the drinks were horrible. Like they don’t have a real bartender making the mixed drinks. The 1sr and 2nd times we sent the drinks back and they came back just as bad. Pass on going again

Always love this restaurant. The specialty drinks are amazing and we’ve never had a bad meal. Obsessed with the chicken and waffles! Two small separate dining rooms keep it cozy and inviting. My wife and I always make this one of our ‘date night’ spots. Staff is always so friendly and competent. Definitely worth a visit if you’ve never tried it.

First time diner. Staff was fantastic, very friendly, very helpful, very welcoming, just the right amount of attentiveness. Food choices were amazing and unique. I chose Maddi's special breakfast and requested crispy potatoes and buffalo chicken hash - OH! MY!!! truly delicious!! Highly recommend! Be sure to make a reservation though! (it's worth it!)

Amazing food and a great server! We'll definitely go back, because there's too many delicious-sounding things on the menu so it's going to take a bunch of trips for us to try them all. Try the crispy Brussels sprouts - they're amazing!

Brunch was unbelievable, my husband got the biscuits and gravy. The flavor was fantastic and the biscuits had bacon and cheddar baked in, they were super fluffy. I got eggs with homemade hash, breakfast potatoes, and the best waffle I've ever had. Our server was awesome, he was super attentive and helpful with suggestions. We had an all around perfect morning out.

Maddi’s needs now review. Staff, food, value and an owner that always makes sure that everyone is having a great time and that everything is perfect. I have brought the toughest food critics to Maddi’s and they always ask to return. Don’t miss this Worcester GEM.

A great night out. We had the cesar salad, chicken and waffles and the Cuban with homemade chips. Large portions, and everything was delicious. The space was very loud so difficult at times to hear. Great beer and cocktails too.

Loud Friday night! Lively vibe. Had a reservation but still needed to wait. Attentive friendly server but felt a little rushed at first. We mentioned it and she kindly backed off. Excellent cocktails. Rather odd, overcooked sweet potato puffs with bacon somewhere in them - $15 app should be memorable. Our steak tips were only okay. Mac & cheese one was better than the bourbon tips. Steak was chewy and overcooked for medium. Potato was like a hard block of cheese. Again, odd with ho hum flavor. Asparagus inconsistently cooked. Tough and stringy.

Throughout dinner it was nearly impossible to have a meaningful conversation with my husband as tables were close and noisy. For a $120 date night dinner with tip, we expected more, especially after reading reviews. We are foodies so our bar is admittedly high. Won’t return unless for a quick cocktail. Sorry…

We all enjoyed our meals. Only comment is that Buffalo Chicken Hash was very spicy, in fact too spicy. My dining companion could only eat about 1/4 of it. The portions are generous. We will return.

My husband and I did brunch on a Sunday morning. The food selections are unique and interesting. Our server was a great multitasker while making sure we had his attention.

The food was phenomenal! The Buffalo chicken Benedict was so good, just the right amount of spice, my eggs were perfect. The only itty bitty thing I’d change is they deep fry their homefries. I personally prefer them from the griddle or baked. But they were still delicious. Portions were huge.

I can’t wait to try dinner there!
