Went in for drinks

They have a really great selection of beers on tap, and the ambience was quite nice. On a Thursday night I definitely fit in with what looked to be a forty something crowd.

A last minute decision to head to this place with a group of Pilots for some grub and drinks! QNot the usual type of stop we try in new cities, but after a recommendation...it was a go. The Madhouse has a selection of beers that are astounding, with a server who helped keep the guys pleased with their decisions. The... More

Great food and healthy options on the menu...with killer cheese cake. Service is always friendly. They have Belgian Fries which are sooo good and the cheesy shrimp...or shrimp au gratin is a must. They have great pictures on the wall and even books to read if you are there alone, they also have trivial pursuit cards to play with at... More

Good food, good service, great atmosphere, always a good time. Haven't tried anything that I didn't like. One of my favourites is the steak and goat cheese salad.

The Madhouse is my "go to" for a sure thing. Great atmosphere, always a friendly crowd at the bar and funky seating arrangements. Food could use some up-dating, since many new restaurants have popped up in the area, but I'm not complaining! I really enjoy the steak salads.

We were here for a quick dinner before a comedy show down the street (at the Hoito). The food and service were pretty good, the price was quite reasonable, and it has some interesting menu items e.g. sweet potato and roast red pepper soup. But the place was a bit noisy when crowded. Also, our table was the closest to... More

I came here with my girlfriend after the Buskers festival. It was hard to find a table, but usually this place is packed. It's a good idea to reserve a table in advance if you have expectations. It's a good place to come with friends to have an app and beer or to eat the mad Burger if you're really... More
