“Wonderful ice cream!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had stopped here several times on our way to visit family in Stonington. Our group always enjoys the ice cream offerings and we look forward to our next stop at Madelyn's!

“Nice old fashioned drive-in”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Madelyn's has a wide variety of seafood choices on the menu. All are very fresh. Their chowder is excellent, more of a milk base than super creamy but full of haddock, potatoes and onion. They also serve burgers and dogs. Children have an extensive menu to choose from too. There are picnic tables available as well as a nice play area for kids. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

“Haddock sandwich is amazing!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The haddock in their Haddock burger hangs out of the bun on both sides and is one of the best around.

Don't drive by - drive in to this spot!

“Perfect drive-in, awesome rolls”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

The lobster rolls here, while smaller than other places down east, are made exactly as they should- not too much mayo, but just enough. Big chunks of lobster and a toasted-to-perfection bun. Top it all off with a delicious ice cream as your desert and you're going to get a great meal for not too much. While it's not the cheapest lobster roll you'll see, the playground and seating area is fun for kids and adults alike. Steer clear of this place on a rainy day, though- no where to sit without getting wet!
