“Sweet Service, Tough Meat”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Nice local place and they were great serving our large group. However, $19.00 for a strip stake that had a line of grissil and fat running down the middle and chunk fat at the end?! And the black and blue salad (with cubes of steak) had neatly cut cubes of… fat. Really, you cut the fat and put it on the salad? Service was great, the ladies were on top of all of our requests.

“Broadway Tavern great place for food and drink”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

We've visited the Broadway Tavern on our last three visits to Madison (we visit Madison often), and all three visits have been enjoyable. They have good beer on tap and great appetizers and meals. I recommend the 'Buffalo Chicken Dip' app and Stella Artois on draft! The dinner menu is a bit pricey, however their sandwiches and burgers are just as tasty and more affordable.

“Oldest Tavern in Indiana....great food too!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Great selection of draft beers...prices are a little steep ($15 for a pitcher of Summer Shandy) but it's a great historical landmark to drop a few dollars at. Walking distance to everything neat in downtown.

“Great place for get togethers”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Food is good especially the ribs. Can eat inside in the bar area or with children in other dining room. Outdoor patio is large and very nice in the spring, summer and fall months. Patio is a great place for friends and family to get together and enjoy food, drink and visiting.
