After visiting many times our last experience was very disappointing. Overall cleanliness was lacking e.g. tables/chairs not wiped, condiment bottles dirty/chipped, washrooms looking shabby and dusty. Food (lunch) was mediocre and lacking in appeal & flavour. Tartar sauce tasted of relish only. Entire restaurant was...More

Madelyn's features uninteresting food served with equal disinterest in a place wholly lacking i charm. Stratford, Ontario, is a wonderful town and there are plenty of other places to spend your money.

We were looking for a small diner for some food while on a bike trip through Stratford. Found this place and was pleasantly surprised. I like the old school decor and the food was quite good. The buttertart was stupidly tasty. It made no sense...More

The food was greasy, the smell of the cooking oil was overwhelming. The food was sub-majestic. I'd avoid it.

We had breakfast here months ago, and noticed a sign that they're known for their butter tarts. Promising ourselves the next time we were in town we would try one, today was the day. The crust was the best I'd ever had. Flakey and crusty...More
