This restaurant had the best lunch. There special for the day was half a ham and cheese sandwich with a cup of soup and a drink for $5.00. The sandwich was the best I have had in a long time. The loaded potato soup was so delicious. I would recommend the restaurant highly. 👍👍👍👍

Good hamburgers. Service was slightly slow, and the table was sticky. Really wish wait staff would say "you are welcome" instead of "no problem" - of course it is no problem, they are paid to provide service. Just a small pet peeve.

We were in Madison for Courthouse Days and town was packed. We ate twice at Downtowner, both times restaurant was packed, but food arrived fast and perfect. Had BLT as a wrap, and bacon was perfect. Also had the Blue Bird sandwich and it was good. Save room for cookies, they are all good.

Stumbled across the Downtowner during lunch. Clean, bright, and friendly look brought us in. We ordered the lunch special -- half a turkey sandwich and a cup of soup, plus a drink. Wow. The sourdough was the tastiest, fluffiest, best bread; the sandwich had just the right amount of ingredients; and the soups -- we tried two different ones --... More

Stopped by here last week and had a very enjoyable lunch. Great menu with choices for every taste. Service was good, food came in a reasonable amount of time, and was very delicious. Nice atmosphere also.

We really enjoyed eating here as we were able to get a table out on the sidewalk. It was a beautiful day and it's fun to eat outside with our friends and watch people. my wife and I both ordered the Downtowner Club. It was piled high with meat, cheese and goodness. It was scrumptious. The service was prompt and... More

Pretty standard sandwich shop. prices are little high for what you get. Decent eats. Try the Hot Brown, or the BLT. Finish it off with a cookie as big as your head.
