We stayed at the Madison Beach hotel for a staycation weekend and ended up eating breakfast, dinner and brunch at the hotel restaurant every day. Classic hotel. Restaurant has a great porch to lookout the sound and sunset. Bar is great. Staff was great and accommodating. Highly recommend this place!

It's a better summer stop if you don't want to go to hammo to be bombarded by everyone coming in from out of state. It's always clean and it's a great summer stop or fall if you just want to take a walk!

we were only in town for one day so when we enjoyed lunch so much, food and view, we decided there was no need to go anywhere else for dinner and breakfast. food was excellent, service was superb, and the cost was exceptionally reasonable! best of all I would do the same next time!
