Today’s quick review takes us to the Madison Bar & Grill. We arrived at around 4pm so the place was essentially deserted. We got a table outside along Washington St. Tables were a bit small to me, but most people would fit fine, I assume.

Our waitress came over and took our order. Let’s just do a quick summary of what we ordered and what the food was like.

Appetizer: Three Cheese and Roasted Garlic Pizza w/ Mozzarella, Asagio and Parmesan. ($7)
– Decent size for one to eat as entree, or to share as an appetizer
– Came with a side of tangy marinara sauce to dip
– Taste favored the parmesan cheese over the others
– Fairly priced and prepared well.

Entree #1: Cuban Style Steak Sandwich ($9)
– Rather large dish. Lots of fries (too salty though)
– Steak wasn’t as tough as you’d expect flank steak to be
– Flavor was ok, but a bit on the bland side
– Too much to finish if you order appetizers with it

Entree #2: B.L.T. ($8)
– Interesting variation to standard BLT. With sourdough bread and brie cheese.
– Very decent and flavorful bacon
– Again with the overly salted fries

Service was just fine (except for when the stepped on my food when the food came out). The outdoor eating on the corner of 14th and Washington is a bit too trafficky (buses, etc). But Madison usually has pretty consistent food and exceptional service. Not a bad place to go when you’re in a pinch for somewhere to eat.

Overpriced, and boring choices. Much better off at Liberty or Oneill’s for breakfast.

Where pretentious post pubescent preppies go to see and be seen while spending the large salary they pretend to have.

I find Madisons irritating on many levels, but the best example is that the bouncers will keep people in a line, outside the bar when the bar is at 50% capacity. They do this on purpose to make the bar look important rather than keeping the patrons trying to get inside happy. I don’t think its a terrible bar, I have found the bartenders there do a very good job, actually. The few times that I have been inside, I also found the DJ spinning some good tunes, too. I just think the people who go there on a regular… Read more »
