Food was very good!

Stopped in for lunch. Prices were good and so was the food. The service was also good and very friendly. Will definitely come back next time we're in the area.

It was about what you would expect. Decent but not remarkable diner food. Inexpensive. A bit clunky on the service. Not a place I would go for a special visit.

Good lunch spot - sandwiches are always good. This time I had the personal pizza - unfortunately the crust looked and tasted like a mass produced frozen item. But I'll go back - and I'll order the sandwiches!

The staff was very friendly, the food was great, servings were large and the prices very reasonable. The cookies were soft, moist and yummy. I would definitely stop here again.

Over a labor day weekend visit to Madison, Indiana to enjoy the historic town, state park hiking and other festivities, we happened to be walking the main street and stumbled upon this place, a lady walked out and mentioned that the sandwiches were very good, so we tried it....wow! amazing, maybe partly because we were very hungry, but I doubt...

The Downtowner has amazing food and great service. They offer a wide variety on the menu and sometimes it's hard to decide what to order! All of the sandwiches are tasty and the side dishes are just as delicious. The prices are reasonable and they always have their GIANT cookies!! Yum!

Stopped with four other family members for a quick lunch before getting on the road. We were able to get sidewalk seating for all of us. Our server was friendly and helpful. My chicken wrap tasted fresh with top notch ingredients. My daughter raved about the double loaded potato soup. Nice way to enjoy Madison.

Nice little restaurant in Historic Downtown Madison Indiana. Mostly sandwiches, salads, pizza and desserts. I had the hot brown - absolutely delicious with a side of pasta salad. My husband had the chicken salad - he loved it. Seeing what other individuals ordered you receive a generous portion on your sandwiches. It just a cozy little restaurant, nothing fancy, very...
