Just got back from Madison. We went here because we had our dog and could sit outside. Huge place with picnic tables and a carousel for the kids in the center of it all. People bring table cloths and libations. Many multi generational families enjoying eating, running around and relaxing. Think lobster shack on steroids. The steamers were excellent and... More

We had the fish and chips, which didn't taste much like anything. The fries were mealy too. The portion was decent, but the quality was nothing special, and the prices were high for this kind of mediocre food. Can't figure out why people think it's so great. They have a carousel in the back, which was the reason we went... More

• Food was average and way over priced • Service was terrible • Tables dirty and sticky • They need an AC system that works All together this place is no different than McDonalds. Burger King or any other fast food chain
