I had beef tenderloin with a veal reduction which I would leave off next time. My husband had tomato soup and a short rib. He enjoyed both. The chocolate cake with homemade chocolate ice cream was perfect to share. Had great service. The merlot by the glass was great. Will definitely return.

Delicious meal! The location and surroundings are unique, and added character to the restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely lunch with plenty of menu offerings. Our server, Nikki, was perfect. Her unassuming, kind manner added much enjoyment to the excellent food.

I love it when someone suggests going to Madden's. I love it when I remember it's in downtown Bryan. It's off the main path here in B/CS but worth calling ahead to ensure a seat. They also have a great brunch.

This is a don't miss. We here graduation weekend. Lucky to get a table. Recommend reservations. Soup & sandwich hit the spot for lunch. Then the raspberry bread pudding topped with ice cream a real treat. Tim, our server, just incredible. You could tell he really enjoyed his job.

My husband and I lived in downtown Bryan for 2 years and this was our go-to for a romantic night out. Walkable from our loft with creative and outstanding dishes. Always go for the special!

So, I had the quiche, but others at my table had the tuna stack, shrimp linguini and meatloaf. Everything was amazing. And making a selection was difficult, because it all looked good. Healthy options were available. Fun lunch place! Good, friendly service.

We had a late Saturday afternoon lunch here and were VERY impressed with how good the food was and how reasonable the prices were. We had been under the impression that it was a rather pricey place but were pleasantly surprised when we received our check. (We did not have any alcohol with our meal.) HIGHLY recommend them for a... More

I love this place for lunch! In a marvelous gift & design store that is exquisite! The food is delicious and expertly prepared. I love the chicken jalapeño salad, Texas famous meatloaf, and the best tomato basil soup I've ever tasted! Great downtown location that has unique shopping. Great staff! Always courteous.

This was a top restaurant in town. Then a new owner. Service has declined....now part of a growing corporate-like string of restaurants under a single executive chef. No attention to detail. On recent visit service was poor, food was not up to par, and didn't have feel of place this once was. Will not go again.

Madden's offers a quiet place to dine with friends & have a good visit. The only Pinotage we've seen in town was great with the well plated & tasty fare!
