My wife and I had dinner here on a recent trip to Madison. It was recommended by a nearby hotel we were staying at. We were not disappointed. The steak I had was cooked perfectly and was very tender. The perch fillet my wife had was very good as well. We arrived on a Friday at about 5:30 and was... More

Enjoyed dinner with friends here recently. Always known for their steaks, instead we chose the Delicious pork tenderloin and special chicken dinner. Huge portions. Efficient friendly service.

Being a long time Madison restaurant and a steak lover, I have tried them all. Tornado Steak House is always my go to spot for a perfect cut, perfectly cooked filet! Call early for reservations, the quality of this place isn't really a secret and they are always busy!

Great late night menu. The service is lacking and pretentious but the food is good. I've eaten here many times and my steak is always cooked perfectly.

I go for the late night menu. I hear wonderful things about the regular dinner menu, but it's a bit pricey for me. Late night though, $10 buys you a phenomenal steak sandwich. Absolutely love the bar area, great atmosphere, super comfy bar chairs. Don't plan on squeezing in anymore than 4 people in a booth in the bar area... More

This was my first trip to the well-known downtown supper club. I had been wanting to get there for some time. I had an employee in town that I wanted to treat to a really nice dinner so we called ahead to get reservations and were seated about 45 minutes early. The old-fashioned are top notch, the service was a... More

Service was excellent, a little pricy, ordered my tenderloin medium and it cut like butter and was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Will certainly go back!

I stopped in at the reccomendation of a friend and i counldn't have been happier. I stared off with one of the best bourban old fashioned that i have had in a long time. The onion soup for a sarter was loaded with sweet onions and lot of melted cheese. Although they are well known for their steaks i decided... More

We had early reservations here. The bar is very nice, special drinks were very good, and the staff was excellent. My husband ordered a steak and he could not cut it with his steak knife. I had the walleye and it was excellent. The staff was very good and we got a free dessert, but ... we are not sure... More
