“Dinner with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2011

Madrona is not cheap but the food was excellent and the seating (we sat outdoors on the patio) gives you a beautiful view to take in. The waitress and staff were very friendly and attentive. We got the fish and chips and also the mediterranean penne pasta and both were excellent.

“Great Garlic Fries, Decent Food, Spectacular Dining View of East Sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2011

Service was decent. Nice bar-ish decor, somewhat dimly lit. Madrona is a place I'd go with my buds to catch the game and get a brewski. The view of East Sound is incredible and worth going alone.
The garlic fries are out of this world. Burger was decent. However the Fish and Chips are the real winner.
Overall, strengths are the view, atmosphere and the garlic fries. Weaknesses are the relatively few menus items, just OK service and not a great value.

“Extra $ for to go desert BOX”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

Lunch here was not the best food ever. Prawns and Fish were undercooked and soggy. Fish was good when removed breading. When we asked for a piece of desert to go they charged us for the box. Should have ordered had it put on a plate with new silverware and then asked for a box to go. Hummmm if the prices are not enough for to boxes raise your rates. I was insulted as a restaurant you should be ashamed. They did nothing about the fish. I did recomend to all coming here now not so sure. Great view of Eastsound Bay.

“worst place to eat- do not go!!!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

The food was just down right bad. I had a dry burger and soggy fries. The service was slow and not very friendly. Expensive for what you get and the place stinks of varnish .
