I had a great bacon burger! My husband had boneless wings--good. Pub offers many different beers as well as good wine selection.

This bar has trivia every Sunday which we like to attend for fun, but tonight took a sour turn after a couple of sour outings to this bar. First, we check their Facebook page to ensure they are open on New Year's Day and it assures us that they are. So we make the drive, about 40 minutes, just to... More

The wing size has significantly decreased over the years but the buff stuff is still amazing. Great on friends and wings. Service is lacking too.

This is a great local place for good sports bar atmosphere and food. Service was excellent. We tried the medium traditional wings with their special rub mmmmm good! Also tried a slice of their pizza which is made fresh. We will be back!

If you are looking for a worn down bar with less than average food, look no further than Madison Garden. Located within stumbling distance of the EKU campus and Post Office you should have little trouble finding it. We ordered a Chef Salad and a Bacon Cheeseburger (with cheddar) and chips for the side item. That with a sweet tea... More

First time here. Met a friend, and we decided to try thier famous wings a try. I’m not a big wings fan... but these dry, rubbed wings were really good. Not greasy, or fatty, JUST right. We ordered more. They have a very wide selection of forgien and domestic brews. If you sit outside, they have a family of carpenter... More

Wings and food are average! Beer selection is average! Service is average! There is really nothing out standing about this place. We only go here when other people ask us to go and we can't convince them to go somewhere else!

I have been here many times. It is a local and visitors favorite. If you visit Richmond, this is where everyone recommends to go. This is a college bar/ restaurant but it has quality food and a big selection of bottled beer with good imports. A rotating list of tap beers. They are known for their tasty dry rub wings.... More
