The Madison Bar and Grill is filled with an ambiance and class that is usually reserved for Manhattan eateries. The dining room is cleverly decorated in a 1940s style reminiscent of a chic roadside inn. The décor works an evocative, magical mood, with bare wood floors, wainscoted walls, soft lighting and subtle touches from a bygone era.

Patrons can also enjoy The Madison’s eclectic American Cuisine at the bar or outdoors in an al fresco cafe that wraps around the street corner.

Be sure not to miss The Madison’s Weekly Events, including the Sunday Jazz Brunch, First Seating, Tuesday Night Martini Madness, Thursday Taco Night and Endless Happy Hour. The restaurant also offers Private Parties and Off-Premises Catering.

The Madison Bar and Grill is a great place for families, professionals, romantic dinners or anyone who likes to unwind and enjoy great food, drinks and service in a sophisticated, comfortable eatery.

......ambiance was nice lovely but entree was plain, no flavor seasoning nothing food needed salt or was just too salty. Honestly the appetizers tasted better then the main course meal.

When we walked up all I saw was the bar side and I was a little nervous that this wouldn’t be the ambiance for a dinner date, but there is a second side with table seating that is separate from the bar. The crab cocktail was surprisingly fresh and the shrimp pasta was tasty. The broccoli rabe was also better than I expected. Overall a very solid spot.

Food and service is usually amazing but really poor this visit. Server forgot us for several moments and messed up the drink order. Steak came cold and extremely rubbery and under seasoned.

We sat on the bar side of the restaurant and it was everything I needed in a night out. Music, great food, great atmosphere. Our waiter made sure our glasses were never empty!

Experience was pretty good - only two issues. The heater ran out of propane and we asked them a number of times to change it - when they did it lasted about 10 mins then was out again and they said they were out of propane.

They also added a $9.27 credit card fee without telling us. The bill was ~$400 so that seemed unnecessary when splitting on two cards and without letting us know ahead of time.

We did outdoor dining for lunch and they did a great job even in the mist of winter. The mic burger + the French onion soup dumplings were delicious.

Went during covid, tables were evenly spaced & not a huge crowd. Ton's of outdoor seating for those who want to sit outside with heaters.

The food and service were terriffic. One glitch. We had a reservation with an old friend. Started with drinks and ordered food about 45 minutes after that. Food was served about an hour and 15 minutes after we sat down. Five minutes later one of the managers came to our table and told us we had to leave in 15 minutes as the reservation was only for 1 1/2 hours. We told him we were never told. He said the hostess told us when we made the reservation. We said that did not happen. He again said we have to leave in 5 minutes and he left. He came back and said the hostess told us when we called and made the reservation. I told him I made the reservation on line through Open Table and never spoke with a hostess. He left and came back and said we have 30 more minutes.

The food is always on point. Their set up regarding Covid is great. We felt completely safe. Tables outside are a safe distance with planters in between which makes for a lovely ambience. The waitstaff is great and you can never go wrong with the cocktail selection.

Awesome food. French onion dumplings 😋. Great service!! Eating outside for covid was fine but website was unclear about that. Some tables were literally on curb with no safety barriers from traffic...glad we weren't seated there. We love the Madison though and know everyone is trying their best!

The quality of food was good and consistent with prior orders. The serving staff was very disappointing - abrupt and appeared impatient with any questions we asked - the primary reason why we will not be dining in there again.

So so good! The frose was amazing and not too sweet, the burgers were great (The Big Mic & Turkey burger) and we tried the Crab Dip that was new on the menu that day. All of it was so delicious and came at a timely manner despite full tables. Well distanced as well! Such a great experience.

Seated and ended up leaving and going elsewhere because we were seated next to the bus stop bench, basically isolated from the rest of the restaurant. Dirt and dust kicking up from cars onto our table, no thanks.
