When my wife and I decided to take a mental health day and get away, we opted to head for lunch at the beach. We knew of the recently built Madison Beach Hotel and decided to give it a try. In a word - Fantastic! We were treated like Royalty, We've been to many hotels where the staff just did their jobs, but this place was different. Everyone, without exception, went out of their way to make our day enjoyable. Their professionalism, their smiles and engaging personalities really allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves - the whole purpose we took the day off. We were at the beach, and where else to have an all-seafood lunch. The clam chowder was wonderful. My wife had the Tuna Tartar appitizer, while I had the Maine steamers. We both went with the special of the day, Lobster Salad on a Tomato Starburst. The presentation was spectacular, as was all the food. It was a pleasure to send compliments to the chef. Finishing with great dessert choices of Strawberry Shortcake Sliders and Chocolate Smores Cake, everything was just delicious. Thursday nights during the summer, there are free performances on the grass between the hotel and the beach. Again, all of the enthusiastic staff encouraged us to stay and take in the concert. They truly wanted us to enjoy ourselves. This evenings performance was John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. Night was clear with a star filled sky, beautiful hotel and surroundings and a great performance by John and his band. What a Perfect Day!! I can't say enough about this place. Oh - and by the way, Mental Health Day - Mission Accomplished.
