Can it really be 40+ years of the Maddie's experience? The change of owners has been not as disruptive as one would have expected for an insitution such as Maddie's. However, Loretta has done a fabulous job building off of what makes this place special and enhancing the experience seamlessly. Sat at the upstairs bar for dinner: the new-to-us fireplace and the couch area was a great addition making the area very warm and cozy. The bar staff makes the famous Maddie quality/sized-drinks of yore and the food is indescribable. Who can go rapturous about a burger and fried clam plate? I mean, how many ways to do them differently. I don't know what their secret is but my wife and I both could not stop ooo-hing and ahhh-ing over our dinners. Shame on us for so long between visits.
