We’re regulars at Madeleines but last night was special - we were outdoors under the tent and were treated to some very nice and festive live music! It was nice to see people out having a good time like pre-pandemic. Drinks, food and service were good as always.

We were so excited to come to your new location for the very first time after frequent trips up to Orwigsburg. We were celebrating my wife's cancer free scan and a well deserved, but late 30th wedding anniversary (2/23). We had the crab cakes and the filet. They were both cooked to our liking. The filet was well worth the price, it felt like you were cutting into butter it was that delicious. We then finished the meal with the Creme Brulee which did not disappoint. The attendants were eager to serve us, which is a rare find due to the current restaurant staffing service they have to deal with. (Just remember to be kind to any establishment that is short handed, they are doing their best with what they have. Be patient and enjoy your surroundings and company) One last thing, please bring back the Fall Fetish! I make them every Thanksgiving at my house. We will definitely be back soon. Cannot wait! Thank you again for making this very special dinner for my wife and I a most memorable one. Very appreciated.

Nice atmosphere. Decor is mostly architectural. Server was friendly, but slow between visits to our table and bringing requested items. Plates were never cleared prior to next course arrival. Lobster mac and cheese waa delicious, but main courses were par.

We had the elk loin which was fantastic as well as the shrimp appetizer. Prompt and friendly service the duration of our meal. Wait time a little longer/prices a little steep - as to be expected with a finer quality resteraunt.

Really bad night. Started with not going any service for 20 minutes after sitting down. Took almost 15 minutes to get our drinks and roll order. More time for taking food order. Quite a while to get food to the table and some of it was cold. Waitress made some excuse about a lot of reservations and the kitchen being backed up. My wife was so upset that she could not eat her meal.
The only good thing, from the whole night, was the manager came over to apologize and ended up comping the whole meal. If we would have had to pay, there would have been no tip. As it was, she did not get one anyway.
A real bummer night to forget....👎🙁

We always enjoy Madeline’s. It’s close to home, and we enjoy the food, the friendly service, ambiance and overall experience. I love the Boom’n Shrimp, and the little taste of sorbet between courses is such a nice old school touch.

The restaurant tried hard to be high class, but the ambiance was very much like a high school cafeteria. Dining rooms were too open for ambiance. Food also needs work. My companion had a decent pasta dish, but my pizza was under cooked - the dough was slightly thick and the underside was light.

Best restaurant that I've been to in a long time. Extremely nice waitress. Food was very good and not as expensive as I thought. Although it's a little far, as we were there for a special occasion, I would love to go back often.

We had a great meal with great service. The calamari was light and perfectly fried with an excellent sauce. Lemon sorbet between courses was delightful. The crab cakes were pretty much pure crabmeat, the chicken piccata was superb. Didn't have room for desert. This is a very good restaurant!

We went for the Sunday Brunch.
We sat on the enclosed Patio.
Everything was perfect. The people were friendly and efficient.
The food was great! I think this will become the go to place for us.
They wiped down the menus and followed all COVID protocol.

Bar staff seemed flustered, it took us a long time to get a cocktail. The folks weren't sure if we should pay there or at our table. We sat outside, it was nice. Our food came out lukewarm and our appetizers came out on top of our salads, not enough time to eat them. Has potential but felt like it was going off the rails while we were there.

Made an early reservation and they seated us in a booth next to the bar. The service was slow - 65 minutes to receive our entree (a crab cake and a pizza). This is the second time was have eaten at this restaurant and this is the same service level as our first experience. The waitress was attentive and trying to manage several tables as well as mixing drinks. Overall we were disappointed with the restaurant and probably won't give it a third attempt.

Awesome lobster bisque! Pineapple salsa on the Mahi Mahi completed the whole meal. Today I had a cauliflower crust veggie pizza and you couldn’t tell it was cauliflower. Mango vinaigrette is also delicious as well... actually everything we have had at Madeline’s has been super delicious!

Everything at Madelines is great. Food,service and all is very good. The only thing is that when you sit near the fireplace it gets really hot. So we try to not sit near it.

We made a reservation for dinner to celebrate my stepmom's birthday. The food was excellent, and the waitress made an excellent temperature suggestion for the elk entrée. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the elk and said it was cooked perfectly. I had the mahi mahi, and it was excellent. My parents had the chicken - a lot of food and very good. Of special note - after our soup/salad, they gave us lemon sorbet to cleanse our palettes. It was a nice surprise! After dinner we enjoyed two of their desserts (the lemon dessert and the PB pie - both EXCELLENT), and the waitress included a candle for my stepmom's birthday, which was a nice touch. This isn't a restaurant that we could eat at every month - but it was a special treat, and we enjoyed everything we ordered. We would all definitely return for another meal soon!!

Our server was fairly new and kept apologizing but she did a great job. She was friendly and very attentive. I ordered the lobster bisque which was good but needed more lobster. My husband had the fried calamari which he enjoyed.after our appetizers we were pleasantly surprised when we were served apricot mango sorbet. There was a backup in the kitchen and the food took unusually long. Our server was quite upset we were waiting and inadvertently forgot to serve us our salads. The manager came over and apologized again and said we could pick a desert on the house for our inconvenience. I had the crab cake which was delicious, full of lump crabmeat. My husband got the elk loins. He enjoyed them as well. The peanutbutter pie was wonderful! We will definitely return to Madelines again!

Overall the food is not impressive at all. We started with the calamari and it really felt like it was microwaved. For the main course my wife had the pizza and it was decent I ordered the not so perfect picatta. The chicken was extremely bland the butter and wine sauce wasn’t very tasty at all. We haven’t visited the restaurant for over a year and was hoping it it would have gotten better but I can’t say it has.
