The Mariner's Inn
Bill and Betty’s sons, Bill, Jack, and Robert, along with their crew, now carry on the tradition of outstanding hospitality of von Rutenberg Ventures. Waterfront dining on the patio and a sunset over the marina make dinner at Mariner’s an evening to remember.
Excellent steaks. Good service. I recommend for a friendly special night out with friends.
As is the usual, awesome service, excellent food. We will be back.
We have been going to the Marier's Inn for years! We love it and always have a wonderful time. We also enjoy going to The Naughty Gal and the Betty Lou Cruises. We also have been to Captain Bill's and enjoyed them but they are across town for us. We highly recommend going and have a good time!
All around wonderful experience. Food was excellent, service was excellent no complaints
As always great food and atmosphere. I felt a little rushed on New Years Eve.
We were running late for our reservation, but the host was very gracious and got us right in. Our waitress was friendly and professional. The food was excellent. Very nice evening out with my husband.
Been going to Mariners for 40 years and always a great meal with great people.
Our meal was excellent. The wait staff was friendly, courteous and very attentive. I recommend the Mariners to anyone looking for a good meal with great atmosphere.
My wife and I celebrated an early New Years Eve dinner at the Mariners. The food and service was excellent.
We have going to the Mariners for over 40 years for special occasions. It’s a homey place for a celebration and the food is excellent. The staff is very accommodating and the service is excellent as well. I can’t say enough about the food and the feeling of being pampered when we are there. I highly recommend!
Very nice spot for steaks and seafood, on the water with great service. A hidden gem in the Madison area. Family owned, friendly, inviting. Has a beautiful patio for summer dining. Shrimp and Cajun Salmon were excellent. Nice choices of sides, fresh salad.
I rarely have a steak. I ordered the rib-eye/seafood combo, medium with a little pink. It came rare. I had it recooked. The outside was charred, the inside still rare. I didn't want to send it back again. Everything else was REALLY good! I asked if they could take the price of the steak off the bill. And they did without a problem. I am not generally a complainer, but it was a bit pricey for me and I wanted my money's worth. The waitress felt bad and was VERY kind about it. And I APPRECIATED IT VERY MUCH!!
As always, the food was excellent. I brought some out of town guests and they loved it.
Wonderful dinner with out-of-town guests. Thank you for making our evening memorable and delicious.
Celebrated Christmas along with my promotion with my best friend.
Great shrimp! Great Brandy Alexander after dinner drink! It was wonderful.
Steaks & seafood are the best, cooked the way you order, great salad and the best hashbrowns ever. Service is always great.
We Always have a nice meal here. Very helpful and enjoyable staff.
Always a great meal at The Mariner's. Great food, great atmosphere, good value.
Great dining experience for our group of 8. Service, food and drinks were all very good.
We had a party of 8 and requested a round table so we could all visit easily. They granted our request and we all said this made the meal much more enjoyable!!!
Great food! Great service!
Excellent food !! Great service !! If you are not from the north side of Madison, it's definitely worth the drive.
We always enjoy special nights—birthdays and anniversaries—at Mariners. Always smiling servers, good ambience and great menu options.
Like going there. My wife needs special made food & the staff was very helpful.
We always have a great time here. A great place for small groups. Love it.
A visit to Mariners is always a best bet when my husband and I visit family in Madison.
Consistantly outstanding! My out-of-town guests favorite restaurant.
Amazing atmosphere, service and food!!! One of our favorite places!
The special, 2 dinners for$52 was a great value! The options were excellent and overall dinner was scrumptious!
The Mariner has the waterfront going for it and great nautical decor. Our service was great. The wine list was very reasonable. Salad and side included which is a great Supper Club standard. This spot has potential to have a killer combo with a few improvements. Don't order an Old Fashioned unless you want more of a kiddie cocktail - no muddling and not upgraded with the great cheeries - also too weak. While I very much appreciate the local farm purveyor on the beef, both the prime rib and NY strip were very tough, especially for the price, so a big disappointment there. Today's Supper Club model calls for top notch drinks updated with modern fixings, a relish tray of some sort, and steaks on quality par for the price with other offerings in the Madison area.
Great meal even though service was a bot slow because of a larger, higher demand table.
Was a little disappointed - have definitely had better experiences at the Mariner - food was okay but not as good as previously experienced which was disappointing as we were with family. Two ordered the rib eye which was "just okay".
We had a great time, great food and great service. What a wonderful gem on the lake on the North side of Madison.
Our server was fantastic! The deal offered for the anniversary was good. The wine list was okay. The food was okay, but a bit under seasoned. The seating was uncomfortable. But the decor and lighting and view made for a very romantic ambiance.
Nice cozy restaurant - wonderful atmosphere - friendly and welcoming.
I always enjoy dining at Mariners! The food and people are awesome.
Excellent food; good value. I had the Canadian walleye. So good.
Food was delicious as usual. Waitress was friendly and attentive. We always enjoy dining at Mariner's.
Great Food Great price Great atmosphere Never disappoints
We love your tender delicious, steaks, our waitress was fantastic, and you have ICE CREAM DRINKS, which seems to be a rare find recently. Definitely worth the drive. Thank you for a great experience we can always count on.
