While in the Madison area on a Sunday we stopped in for lunch. They were busy, but we were sat within a few minutes. While waiting to be sat, the manager told us that the place recently changed hands and that everything was still very good, like it used to be. Upon being seated we waited 15 minutes before the...

We stopped for lunch here and found it to be a very pretty little restaurant. The service really stood out, both greeting and getting us seated, taking of our orders and attention from the server throughout the meal. We noticed they seemed to have many repeat customers, and they were shown to their favorite tables. The meal was good, it... More

Cauliflower brie soup was very flavorful. Very good onion rings and the main courses were all very well reviewed by our group, from the fish to the steak and cheese, to the salad. The service was attentive and the place is a small-town gem. Worth the stop!

We have driven through and around the town of Madison, VA on our way to Shenandoah Ntl Park dozens of times. This time we decided to check TripAdvisor for a restaurant nearby and decided on Madison Inn. It was a pleasing surprise for the palate. My dining partner chose the beef filet mignon-medium rare, and I selected the in-season fried... More

On a lark my wife and I decided to drive to Madison, Va. for lunch. It was a 2 hour drive from where we live but we wanted to see the fall colors in rural Virginia. When we got to old town Madison we began looking for a place to have lunch and it did not take long. Right there... More

We enjoyed an early dinner starting with a velvety butternut squash soup, salad greens with blue cheese crumbles, fresh pears, dried cherries and pecans, and fresh baked rolls. Entrees included crab meat stuffed flounder, with jasmine rice topped with couscous and a vegetable medley of summer squash, asparagus and Haricote Verte. Two diners enjoyed the pork ribeye with cherry sauce,... More

The people at this restaurant treat you like family. They are very friendly and they were happy to have my dog join us. Of course, they gave her water. They were also gracious and kind to my 7 year old son, giving him the balloons that were attached to their sign and snipping some flowers for him to give to... More

The Madison Inn is a great place to have a wonderful dining experience. We where greeted and quickly seated. They have several appetizer and entree specials. Delicious food was served promptly and hot. We had the French onion soup my wife stated it was the best she has had. Our table"s entrees included delicate oysters, moist salmon with a dill... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Food is delicious, local trout is cooked to perfection. I have never been disappointed. The place to go when you have time to savor your meal.
