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.

Somehow I always think the food there is better than it is. I seem to remember having more vegetarian options on their old menu. Still a fun place to go for drinks.

It's just almonds from a jar, and the wings are small and the sauce isn't good. Busy place but i can't understand it

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.
