This place was recommended by one of the stage actors who lives nearby. He loves it so much he even brings the tarts to Toronto when he comes back. If you enjoy diners you will probably enjoy this place. Staff was friendly and food was delicious. Wish it had been real syrup but what can you do. A real homey feel.

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 freezing and you had to keep your coat on. Would return only to pick up some tarts if in the vicinity.

We went for dinner on a Wednesday night. Service was fast and effecient. We ate outside on their outdoor patio. Place inside could be updated. We split the roast beef melt on an ace bread bun for $11.99 which was delicous. It came with coleslaw and homemade turkey soup. The soup was outstanding. We split a pecan butter tart $3.00 which was to die for.
The restaurant is famous for their tarts. We would go again and try something different off the menu. The restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday over the dinner hour.

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.

Looked at the resaurant here on Trip Advisor, and liked what I saw. So in a hankering for fish and chips, and away we went. Wife had the one piece, I had the two. Wife could not finish the plate, tasty, filling satifying, just needed alittle more of the coleslaw. For myself, same with the slaw, and the plate was empty when I was fone. Very good. We sat outside, nice setting,could use a couple of fly killers on the edge of the patio. Would reccommend anytime.
