While meandering through the Virginia countryside on our way back from Big Meadows we happened upon Madison. We made a stop at the local museum. We enjoyed that and they had a nice collection of Native American artifacts from the area. Worth a stop. We asked for local restaurants with in walking distance. There are 3 one of which was... More

Madison Inn was recommended to us. It's a quaint, lovely little restaurant on the main street in the small town of Madison, VA. You have to look very carefully for it or you'll miss it as we did. While you're driving down the street, look up for the yellow Madison Inn sign with the rooster on it. Lunch was very... More

Visiting the area and came upon this gem. Food, salad with apples and lemon vinegarette, pan fried tout, both were great. The fresh rolls and the outstanding service completed the meal. I will go out of my way to eat there again if I am any were close.

We enjoyed lunch yesterday at the Madison Inn. Both the food and service were fabulous. Our server, Karen, made us feel welcome and right at home with her friendliness. The crab cake was delicious - hardly any filler and the sweet potatoe fries were the best. The mountain trout was outstanding. The atmosphere is very inviting and quaint. Can hardly... More

Our family just had dinner at the Madison Inn. Outstanding. A few appetizers including Panko crusted goat cheese and fried green tomatoes. A couple of salads, plus two soups...cream of mushrooms and french onion. Then entrees including trout, crab cakes and seafood pasta. Every item was fresh and tasty. Glad we saved room for the homemade desserts. Highly recommend the... More

While there are lots of good meals, this was one of the best. They have their own rolls before the main course- wow! Roast duck over steamed spinach; baked potato or rice, side of vegetables. $24. Service by Rebecca was the best. Even better, they support Hospice of the Piedmont. Another good reason to visit Madison County.

The waitresses, Lauren and Andie, make you feel right at home and are incredibly friendly and attentive. The food is fresh, homemade and... More

We live in this county of rural Virginia and after many years, we tried the Madison Inn in July for lunch. Actually the crab cake sandwich was fine and also the cole slaw. The burger that my husband had was pretty good and service was pretty fast too. Today, we went there for lunch. Water was poured quickly and menus... More

We celebrated my husband's 50th Birthday there with 20 friends and the service and food could not have been more perfect. Everyone's meal was excellent (esp. the fresh trout) in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Even though we do not live nearby we will definitely visit on our way to and from D.C.

We were in Madison visiting relatives for the second year in a row. We came here for brunch after church with my husband's aunt and had a delightful meal. I choose the shrimp and goat cheese omelette special, my husband had the eggs benedict, and his aunt had the pancake, sausage, bacon, eggs breakfast, and all were excellent. We had... More
