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

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.

We've eaten here many many times over the years and know that the food will be consistently good. We typically come for dinner, although have been here for lunch and brunch. The staff is friendly and the surroundings are comfortable. Recommended without reservation.

I had a lovely meal. I was going to order chicken and kale ravioli but the very nice waitress read us the specials and highly recommended the trout so I decided to try it with vegetables and fruit. It was a delicious choice. My husband ordered turkey soup and chicken salad sandwich. He was very impressed. The soup was definitely... More

Tasty well cooked food. I had the madison trout with sweet potato wedge cut fries and fruit. The fish was really good but I loved those fries but both came out very hot. A side of freshly baked bread (also hot) with real butter and fresh fruit made this a perfect lunch! The staff working there did an excellent job.... More

After a long day of hiking nearby, my family stopped in for dinner. The service was beyond friendly and the food was outstanding. I wish we lived closer, but will be sure to stop by whenever we venture into the area again.

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
