Worst ever ~ tired, worn, bad service, expensive and mediocre food at best.
After having spent 2 weeks in California eating out 3 meals a day, this was definitely the worst one value-for-money wise. It was a fun, tacky place, but steak prices should be half of what they are. I paid almost 50 dollars before tax and gratititude for my steak and I had to spit out parts of it because I couldn't chew it. The GSM wine was decent for the price though.
This place is fantastic! Unbelievable ambiance and amazing service. My children (ages 7&9) had a great time. We sat at "Dolly Parton's favorite booth" and it was amazing. This is a must on your bucket list. We will be back for sure!
This is just a must try. The ambiance is one-of-a-kind, the service was exceptional, and the food was really great.
This was our second visit in as many years and it was a wonderful experience again. My wife had the lamb, I had filet, both were prepared and presented beautifully. Our server Jordan and his assistant were very attentive and took excellent care of us. If you want great food and service, then I highly recommend this steakhouse.
We love this place! The service is great, the food perfect, and the band and dancing is great entertainment.
Highly recommend this gem.
This was the first time I have ever celebrated a Valentine's day, and the first Valentine's day with my girlfriend and the Gold Rush Steak House was the most amazing experience ever. The food was amazing, the ambiance was something from a movie I plan to make this a tradition for us.
The decor is amazing. Definitely worth it. But the food....OMG that was horrible. I get better food for lunch at my workplace cafeteria.
Totally exceeded our expectation! Sometimes restaurants will forgo taste for atmosphere or vice versa. But Madonna Inn Steakhouse has BOTH! Absolutely loved it!
It was our second time coming there! I loved it the first time it was amazing and so we decided to have a fancy date night.. our server wasn’t as nice and helpful as the last lady we had before.. otherwise that food was amazing and the pink champagne cake is fabulous! Probably will be coming back sometime , but now I know what to ask for when I call for a reservation... oh also that night music was a little to loud the microphone kept doing that awful sound when it’s to loud and pierced everyone’s ears ? Maybe should keep the music a notch down but otherwise love it!
We have been dining here for nearly 45 years. It looks the same but the food doesn’t seem the same. Perhaps because we decided to visit you on Valentine’s Day. Thanks for the memories!
Exceptional service. Food was what we expected. Jazz band was relaxing. Would definitely return to dine
The food was quite good and prepared as requested. The table service was fine, but with an advance reservation we waited 10 minutes to be seated in an almost empty restaurant. The man showing us to the table told my wife when she requested a booth that there were no booths available because we had not specifically requested one, and they now were all taken. We left 1 1/2 hours later and there were still numerous empty booths. The same man did not pull out a chair for my wife, and was very perfunctory in depositing our menus on the table. The waitress who waited on us was good. Interestingly enough, this is the third time we have dined in the restaurant at various times of the evening, and the same man has been setting up for live music. However, we have still to hear any music being played during the time we were dining, other than the canned music they play while they go on and on setting up.
My wife and I to went The Madonna Inn for a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day. We had our wedding reception there in 1971. We live locally and go to the Madonna Inn for our anniversary and birthdays and we enjoy the tasty food, excellent service, and of course, the desserts! We especially like the Madonna Inn house champagne, locally produced.
This evening was a real treat for both of us. The prime rib, Caeser salad, expertly cooked sweet peas and handsomely adorned baked potatoes, with all the desired ingredients, were fabulous. Our server, Jared, was so attentive and fun and he took excellent care of us. A highlight was when a young couple near us got engaged! We watched as the man nervously spoke to his intended. She gladly put on the ring and admired it for a moment then, she immediately pulled out her phone and called friends and family. Since we were sitting behind the bride-to-be, we could watch the screen change from a delighted face squealing with joy to a close-up picture of her ring! The faces changed but the ring sparkled each time.
Another lovely occasion at the Madonna Inn!
Too expensive for bland food.
