Food is good, but not surprisingly good since Madden's is already famous for its excellence. The gift store is so festival, which adds to the flavor of the food. I would say it is a "must go" in downtown Bryan.

My sister lives in Bryan, and introduced me to Madden’s. Now? I want to go every time I visit her. Our last visit was for lunch, and the service was excellent – no small feat in a college town – and the food, of course, was fantastic. Do yourself a favor and get the deviled egg appetizer. In fact, get... More

I've enjoyed many meals at Madden's, which is aptly named. I live in Toronto, Canada, where I am fortunate to enjoy fine dining experiences. Madden's is most definitely warmly casual and gourmet! The food is consistently delicious, and brilliantly executed; and the desserts, truly upscale and innovative. Really decent service, too. I've never been disappointed at Madden's!

We've never had anything other than wonderful food and service at Madden's. The filet at dinner is the best! Lunch is great (especially the grilled cheese) and very reasonably priced. As a added bonus, you can look through the Old Bryan Marketplace on your visit. A great shop! We always take out of town guests to Madden's!

Excellent gourmet food in a casual setting. We will go back as soon as we can get away for a long weekend. All of our food was fresh and interesting. Artfully planned presentations! Portions were just the right size. Interesting gift shop connected to the restaurant.

The atmosphere and presentation of the meal is delightful. We tried and enjoyed the crab cakes and the chicken salad. If you want a side salad, be forewarned that their "half" salad is about a handful of Spring mix greens; it was artfully plated, but just not much there.

Madden's was a great place for dinner, and well worth the short drive to Bryan. Historic Downtown Bryan is lovely, and I'd like to go back. The restaurant offered some unique, yet familiar, dishes. All of our food was amazing.
