Found myself in Stratford looking for some lunch. The locals told me this was the place to go and I am glad they did. It is nothing fancy but the food was excellent with large portions and the price was quite reasonable. PS, definitely save room for their award winning butter tarts (I can certainly see why they are "Award... More

We love visiting Madelyn's whenever we have tickets for the theatre. The food is greasy, the atmosphere is laid back, and we love it. A nice change in cuisine after all those fancy meals we had downtown.

This was my second time visiting this restaurant. My first was at lunch, which I found to be just ok. Myself and 3 daughters went to a play and forgot to make reservations for dinner. The only place we could find without a wait time was Madelyn's. I guess there is a reason for that! We started by having no... More

Experience the indigestion of a greasy meal and come out smelling like cooking oil. This local eatery has a loyal following but it's not for the faint of heart or refined of palate. It's for those who want deep fried, high-fat, grub. If that's for you, enjoy. Chipped crockery, grimy diner tables, retro decor.

We visited the restaurant twice. First meals were fish and chips [A]; roast chicken salad- great chicken a bed of greens, mandarin oranges, pecans and a tart dressing.[A+]. Second visit - we each got burgers - EXCELLENT. And my wife got hers on an excellent gluten free bun [1.99 extra but worth it]. On the way out, we got a... More

We love Madelyn's. It's a true diner with ample portions and famous butter tarts. Every meal comes with a heaping helping of potatoes, just how we like it. They never quite have enough staff, but the tried and true diner servers are nice. We make the trip out from downtown every time we are in town just for the atmosphere.

We went to this restaurant for breakfast one morning because we read about their Bacon Butter Tarts ... and although not something you'd want to eat all the time they were a definite treat while on holiday! We bought the Tarts to take for later and had traditional egg breakfast which were done as we requested and very reasonably priced.... More
