“great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Eaten here several times. The food is awesome. Prices are great and service is always excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. Today , Ro was out server. She is a very attractive young lady with a willing smile and very helpful. The other servers were the same. Had the mini Yorkies, small yorkshire pudding stuffed with beef and gravy. Followed by a special which was demi glazed sirloin with broccoli in cheese sauce. The meal included a side of ceasar salad. The menu is excellent with a wide choice. Highly recommend this place.

“fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

Group of 9 on a Saturday afternoon all presented with fantastic food brought out at the same time by five servers. Not what we expected from a pub. We were all very happy with all our meals!!!! Beer was cold and atmosphere was very nice. Lots of tv screens, Our server was very polite and prompt. We cant wait to go again and try more items from the menu

“Excellent Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

We frequent Madison's often. The food is excellent and always consistant. The staff are wonderful, polite and always pleasant. Two sections to the bar, the one side with the VLT's tends to be much louder and heavier with traffic. The other side is quiet and much more relaxing.

“Service? Only at night.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

I've been here about 15 times in the last year, I'll start off positive. If you visit in the evening you'll be served well. The food is either really great or really bad. The night staff is always friendly and attentive.

Going during the day it's a completely different experience. If you play VLTs you won't get served at all. I've never once been served while playing. The wait staff have horrible attitudes unless they see you winning, then you may get a smile while cashing in a ticket but still no service at the machine.
As for having lunch there, service is slow and the waitstaff is completely uninterested in being there. The food is hit and miss.

Go at night and skip being treated like an annoyance during the day.
