Initially I was not sure. The place had a good reputation but on arriving at the front door I was a bit disconcerted by some hefty youths drinking from bottles (in the UK: a big flashing sign). However the staff behind the bar saw me and explained I needed "upstairs". I definitely needed a drink having staggered up those exterior... More

We went to the downstairs pub and had a great time! Joe, the bartender was our affable host and server and treated us (very nicely) like he had known us for years. The drinks are awesome and true to other reviews, you get your money's worth on the liquor. My son and his cousin got the lobster roll which they... More

Walked up the stairs on a cold cold night into Maddie's and had a lovely time. The fire was going & people were having drinks while sitting on sofas. We sat in the back, good lighting & friendly service. No one was disappointed with anything we had. Chowder, wedge salads, haddock, scallops, & terrific plump fried belly clams for the... More

Recently, my wife and I visited Maddie's for dinner with my son and grand-children. It was delightful and we enjoyed the food and service. The menu has a good selection of seafood dishes as well as other items, including beef and chicken selections as well as pasta. The wine selection is also good and the prices are quite reasonable. I... More

First time dining there in past 10 years. Used to love atmosphere and food. I was worried that it wouldn't be the same since closing and reopening under new regime. I went hoping to get good fried seafood. The food was better than I was expected. The portions were generous and above average in taste and texture. Batter was nice... More
