“anniversary specials!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I really like this place as they are very concerned if you don't get the best food you can get. My husband went here with a coupon for our wedding anniversary and neither one of us was really that impressed with the food so wrote it on the card and they called us and sent us another coupon! I've have eaten here many times before with friends and family - the best time was sitting by the window watching the rain and drinking coconut flavored coffee - great wine, great service.

“Best restaurant in B-CS, imho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I find this the most consistently good restaurant in the Bryan-College Station area. The food is always well-prepared, fresh, and imaginative. The wine selection is decent enough to do just fine. I like the atmosphere in the antique store. I've had lunches, dinners, and even group events, and all have been very good. I noticed one so-so review of steakhouse night--this is a new event and that was the first one, I believe. I strongly disagree about the "cold and dark" atmosphere--I find it refreshing to be somewhere without televisions and bright lights.

“Steakhouse night way overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is set in an antique store which is in a warehouse type building. At first it looked really neat but the super high ceilings ultimately made it a cold and dark experience . The steak were very good but not cooked as ordered . The chicken was dry and chewy. We asked for the house wine which was $7 a glass but were given another wine for $9 a glass. Pour was not generous. Everything was al a carte so the bill adds up fast if you want anything besides meat. Sides while good and generous if a little salty. The one crab cake that comes with the appetizer choice was excellent. . I have heard this restaurant is very good but that is definitely not the case on steakhouse night. We left disappointed and feeling a little ripped off

“Wow, just wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Had a business lunch there last Friday, not crowded, very friendly hostess and waiter. Had the pork enchilladas. They killed!! I 'm waiting for an excuse to go back and have these again. This is gourmet food for very reasonable prices. $10 for the entree. It was so good! If this is an indicator of the quality of their other food this place is a winner. Wonderful flavors with rich sauce and the meat in the enchilladas was very high quality, tender and nicely seasoned. The sauce was marvelous. Enough said. Go there.

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

My family always dines here when I come to visit, and Madden's never disappoints. The menu changes slightly seasonally, but favorites are often left on the menu. The menu isn't large, which is fine since fresh ingredients are always used.

The food is traditional American with some imaginative twists. Great desserts, but the coffee is a little weak.

Service is good. It is often crowded so the noise makes it impossible to hold a conversation without yelling.
