Owners/ chef, Peter & Tara Madden, continue to impress diners both local and from out of town with their hidden gem of a restaurant in downtown Bryan. Nestled inside/ adjacent to a retail shop, this place has become a welcome location to celebrate good times among friends. During first Friday events, it books up so reservations are a must. I...

We drove from houston to meet my dad for lunch. I picked Maddens demo the TA reviews and they were right. Nice atmosphere, excellent waiter and fabulous food. We had crab cakes, fried chicken and the grilled chicken sandwich with pesto. All were delicious. Wish we lived closer!

Food was great, service was good and they have an awesome shop you can browse around in. The bathroom needs a little remodeling, door doesn't seem to properly close tight.

We had a wonderful evening at Madden's! The food, service and atmosphere were outstanding!! It was our first time at the restaurant and so we really appreciated our waiter's recommendations ... He definitely hit the mark for all of us!

The service is excellent here and attentive. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The grilled meatloaf is an excellent choice, so is the pork enchiladas with black bean ressota The tenderloin burger is juicy and delicious with lots of flavor and the garlic rosemary bun it was on was also great with fresh vegetables. Salads are delicious here. We love... More

Food is great and better at lunch time. People are very friendly and love keeping things local. Can go shopping next door at the Marketplace if you have time to kill

We have eaten at Madden's several times for lunch and the food is always excellent! The menu is varied & it-has the best fried chicken I've eaten in a long time! The raspberry ice tea is so clear and refreshing . When you eat there save room for the bread pudding.

We chose this place because we wanted a nice place to have lunch and celebrate my child's birthday. We arrived early and asked for a table. The staff seemed put out that we were there. My kids are used to eating in nice restaurants and are very well behaved. We ignored their attitude and it soon changed when they realized... More

The food is excellent, and lunch is not expensive. Service is cheerful, though the servers sometimes fall behind when the restaurant is busy. Having visited Madden's for a few years, the menu has gotten a little boring. The casual visitor, won't have this complaint, of course.

Madden's is a very nice location for an enjoyable, unhurried dining experience. The menu is very unique and not your run-of-the-mill "gut fill" restaurant. I expected the menu to be expensive, but was pleasantly surprised by the very reasonable cost. Some restaurants are so noisy that you don't really enjoy the meal. Madden's isn't like that. It seems to cater... More
