“Charming Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

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 good. My husband had the fresh trout, and I had potato soup and a chicken wrap. Besides what's on the menu specials are available for lunch and dinner. Service was a tad bit slow, but it had snowed the week we were there, so the restaurant might not have been expecting the number of people who dined there that day. What I enjoyed the most was looking at the art pieces on the wall that were done by local artists and were for sale. I would definitely stop there again if we're ever in the area.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

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.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

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 wait to return!!

“Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

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 bread pudding and eclair chocolate cake. Yummy. Service was also very good. Always a great experience!!

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

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.
