Alex Madonna’s Gold Rush Steak House, at Madonna Inn Ratings and Reviews
Special occasions here rate pink balloons at your table. Just the atmosphere alone denotes special occasion. Wish the sword fish were cooked a little longer...it looked pretty pale. Baked potato with all the fixings was good and special in its gold foil. Service was friendly and not
It was quick to make reservations. It's the only very nice restaurant in SLO to take my father in-law for Father's Day. It is a little on the expensive side. Our waitress was very friendly and explained the menu and specials for the day.
Steak House was able to change reservation from two to three without any problem. Potato soup with green chiles was fantastic. Pork Chops and Rib Eye steak were cooked to perfection. Of course can't forget desert!! Service was great...attentive, fun and engaging. Had Swing Band performing which was really nice and entertaining . Great place to eat for any occasion.
I've sent my review. Very expensive for bland food. Hair in my salad, busser's excuse was "cool". Silverware is tarnished- looks dirty. Rude, loud cooks. It's known for outlandish decor, and it's that that you admire. But I think cleaning is very important. The manager said "someone's going to be fired". That's not what to tell a patron. Then he said he would follow up with me. That was 6/3. I am still waiting to hear....The review would be different if I had heard from him..
Steaks were tender, but I had to send my fillet back as it was underdone. The salad was the typical green salad, The baked potato was small for the price of the meal and was overwhelmed by the butter and sour cream. The veggies were pretty, colored cauliflower, but un interesting. Since it was my birthday she brought me a piece of cake, which was something I wanted anyway, so that brought the value of the meal up. We go here for special occasions
The staff was friendly and attentive.
Disappointed that nothing special happened for my husband's birthday. Was told that they had run out of cakes & we were offered small bite size cakes on the house. Not what I expected. Did the waitress forget this was a special occasion?
Fun unique place though.
This place is over the top when it comes to decor. I've never seen anything like it. Food and service were top notch. I had the fillet, my wife the prime rib. Both were cooked perfectly. The Caesar salad was also great. No complaints, we had a wonderful Mothers Day dinner.
Best Mother's Day brunch I have ever had! Although it was very crowded, the staff ensured that we were taken care of and the buffet food was consistently replenished. The prime rib was exquisite and the dessert options were phenomenal.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing time at the Gold Rush Steak house. Our food was excellent as was our service. Our server was Ashley (I apologize, I did not get her last name) and she was very sweet and kind and overall a very good server. Thank you very much for our experience. We truly enjoyed our weekend. We will definitely come back another time.
We came to The Madonna for my mothers birthday dinner. The cake was phenomenal, but the entrees were average and priced as if I was in Manhattan. It was worth it to be in the dining room but I was expecting a bit more wow factor for the price of the food.
