Driving through the country to get away from the interstate and found this gem of a restaurant. Menu was nice consisting of all things fresh. My wife said the quiche and said that she thought is was the best she ever had. I had a gazpacho soup and a caprice salad. Both were excellent. Nice to find something so unique... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the Madison Inn. Although they offered a variety of specials in addition to the regular selections, we again started with our favorite, the French Onion Soup - it's delicious! My husband then enjoyed the steak and cheese sandwich and I had the house salad. We would recommend both. This is a lovely place filled... More

When the inn first opened it was fine. However it now has no regular hours and is only randomly open. Find another place to "dine".

A gem! Sweet and pretty setting, perfect service from Sarah, but just wait 'til you take that first bite! Will it be the delectable mountain trout? Pasta primavera with perfectly cooked vegetables? A classic burger? The choice is yours from their wonderfully varied menu. Do yourself a favor and save room for dessert! A truly fantastic lunch for two at... More

Cozy environment, warm friendly service and great food. Our family enjoyed great tasting hamburgers, sweet potato fries and the California BLT. This owner clearly takes pride in her work! We shall return!!!

Our family just happened to be browsing the local Plough and Hearth, inquired about local eateries and the Madison Inn was recommended! The restaurant is quaint, the staff charming and the meal tasting and filling. The value high with a reasonable price.

Our family of six (four adults and two teens) had just spent the day hiking in Shenandoah National Park and happened across the Madison Inn Restaurant. What a great find. They had everything we were looking for and lots of things we didn't know we wanted. The salads were great. The crab cake were amazing with big lumps of crab... More

I always visit Madison Inn for their French Onion Soup. Delicious! They also have great salads and burgers. Sara is the server we always have and she is fantastic! Madison Inn is quaint, clean and has good prices.

A friend and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch last December at Madison, Va.'s, Madison Inn on Main Street. Our sandwiches were terrific, the wine was delicious, and we were well-taken care of by Sara. The Madison Inn never disappoints and provides a lovely ambiance for a peaceful lunch at a quiet corner table with a friend! Try it sometime!! Annie... More
