If you love quirky, and love steak...then go no further! This is the place for you. Tonight they had a special of an 11oz Filet... mignon with half lobster. The filet was cooked perfect. We also had the pasta with chicken and shared both dishes for ouranniversary. We ended with a champagne cake and it was delicious. I'd recommend either of the restaurants at the Madonna Inn.Both serve generously and have excellent service. Read more

Service was great, waitress smiled and was very friendly. (I think her name was Ashlee?) Asked if we were there for any... occasion. Gave us a slice of their famous Pink Champagne cake for our anniversary. Food was good too. Read more

????????????? ?????????????????????? ?????????? •••???????????? ????????????????... ????????????????????????,????????••• ° Built in 1958 By Alex and Phyllis Madonna, the Madonna Inn is an exceptionallybizarre Swiss Alps-inspired hotel and restaurant that seems to celebrate all that is garish and tacky in human taste. TheMadonna Inn consists of 109 lavish rooms, all with different themes and names to match: Floral Fantasy, Jungle Rock, Sir WalterRaleigh, and Whispering Hills, to name a few. No two rooms are the same. All the colors of the rainbow are employed, but pinkis most notably favored, especially in the unusual rosy lobby dining room, furnished with bright pink booths to match the lightpink tablecloths. Even the sugar on the tables is pink. Fun place to visit for sure and relaxing. I love how every detail hasbeen taken care of Read more

We had such a fantastic experience here! The decorations add an outstanding amount of character to the room, and it made me feel... like I was transported to a totally different time period. I had ordered the rib eye steak, which was cooked exactly the way Ilike it and it tasted amazing! The portion sizes are also very generous, so be sure to arrive with an empty stomach. Read more

Super delicious food in a funky atmosphere! Top notch service from all of the staff members. Highly recommend getting a cake... while you’re here - banana cream pie and the banana nut cake did not disappoint. Don’t forget to stop by the world famousdownstairs restrooms. We will be back! Read more

Celebrating my birthday here was a fantastic experience! We made dinner reservations online in advance and were able to modify... the time with no difficulties whatsoever. Our server Riley was wonderful. He was patient, attentive, and quick, especiallyworking with a party of ten. The warm bread was delicious before our meal. I had ordered the fried chicken which was super hotand crunchy, loved it! I also sampled the swordfish, I would say it needs less cooking and more acidity or salt. Then we endedthe night with the Pink Champagne cake. A cake that I would be ordering to go when we check-out in the morning, it really standsup to it's tasty reputation. I would love to come back here for more celebrations. Amazing ambience, beautiful decor, and awonderful dining experience. Read more

Stopped in on a whim Valentine's day weekend. The place was packed but the staff was very gracious and found us a table quickly... and with no issues. The meal was amazing! The steak was cooked perfectly and did slice like warm butter. Our wait staff wasprofessional and friendly. Perfect for a Valentine's day date night, if you are looking for that or any special occasion. Theyeven do wedding receptions. One was going on in the downstairs banquet room that night? Even if you are not looking for aromantic dinner, this is truly a central coast landmark that can't be missed! Read more

Came here for dinner for a Birthday and it was great! I'm a vegan, the only vegan in my group lol and the Steakhouse was able to... accommodate me. They have a portabello dish on their menu and without cheese it's vegan. I got a side salad before hand that wasincluded with the meal, their balsamic was delicious. They serve complimentary bread rolls and a cheese, veggie plate with thebread. The portabello dish had a really good smoky flavor, served with griled tomatoes, sugar snap peas and a baked potato withchives and olive oil. So good! The rest of the group got steak, lobster etc they all said it was delicious. Definitely goingback. We brought our own cake for the birthday, they brought it out and allowed us to take pics then took it back and cut it upfor us. Then they boxed it for us, amazing service! I also had a cocktail, the cool as a cucumber, it was really refreshing.They have live music at 7 p.m. and a dance floor. Read more
