This is a cozy true American diner, complete with all the standards like having the full menu all day, plus some exciting extras like salmon hash, and infrequently featured beers (Moose Drool Dark Ale from Montana).

This breakfast place, all the way at the end of main street and up the street on the right, was recommended to us at the information booth as we entered the island. There are many breakfast places on the island but this one has a terrific history and allowed us to spend the morning strolling back to the ferry. Even... More

whenever we go to Bainbridge Island we always try and stop at the Madison Diner. It's quaint, beautiful diner just like in the past. Greta comfort food and plenty of it. My wife and I split a meal and she still could not eat all of her section. I have to had a bad dining experience there yet. I would... More

We visited on a Friday morning and the restaurant was extremely busy.We were 2 people and sat at the counter.Service was just OK it seemed that the server had too many tables and was all over the place.Food was just nothing special.

Sat at the counter, friendly staff, quick service - great smells coming off the grill. Just did an easy 2 egg breakfast with bacon, hash browns and toast. Everything was perfect, hot, bacon was fresh and not overdone, has browns were thin and crunchy. And coffee was always filled. Portion size was perfect, cleaned my plate, so often breakfast places...

When you see filthy dirty housekeeping you have to wonder about the kitchen. 1. Dead flies in overhead lighting. 2. Tables have metal rings on the edges that haven't been cleaned in a very long time. 3. Used the Men's room but had to climb over all of the cleaninf supplies and mop bucket to get to the door. The...

It's tough to find diners like this one! So pretty and very clean. The service is friendly and fast! The food is all very tasty! The only reason I didn't give this diner a 5 rating is because the coffee just wasn't that good. Other than that, it's an excellent place to have a very nice meal. We go for... More

Great diner for hamburgers and milkshakes; reminded me of my childhood, dangling my legs from a swivel stool as I sipped my milkshake that had whipped cream and sprinkles on it! Only thing was the burger was a bit raw in the middle, so be sure to request how well you like your burger done, unless you want it "medium... More
