We love visiting Madelyn's whenever we have tickets for the theatre. The food is greasy, the atmosphere is laid back, and we love it. A nice change in cuisine after all those fancy meals we had downtown.

We sat in this establishment & I recalled how not much has changed in 30 years. And that is a great thing, Madelyn's has amazing food and great service!

We went to this restaurant for breakfast one morning because we read about their Bacon Butter Tarts ... and although not something you'd want to eat all the time they were a definite treat while on holiday! We bought the Tarts to take for later...More
