Thank you for sharing your review of The Classic Grill at Madden's! The jumbo Coconut Shrimp with Oriental plum sauce is one of our most popular appetizers, a tie with our Bleu Beef Wontons with Hoisin sauce. We're glad you enjoyed it and appreciate you visiting us. More

The food was excellent, but it was made even better by enjoying the view. The patio, where we ate has a view of the 9th and 18th greens and fairways. It's a beautiful course and the view is fantastic.

The Classic Grill shares the building with the golf shop and is located on Madden's Classic golf course. Nice lounge and white table cloth tables are inside and there is outdoor patio seating. It is not a large restaurant so the noise level is low thus conversation between diners is easy going. They do not take reservations. Three of us... More

We live nearby so we are familiar with Madden's classic Grill. This is probably one of the Brainerd Lake's more classy restaurants. The wait staff is very attentive and tends to your every need. The food and plating is exceptional. Since it was our anniversary we were offered a complementary desert which was very good. The setting for the restaurant... More
