This has been our go to place for about 5/6yrs now coming here to the island. I’m not sure what’s has happened as I was told it’s now under new ownership which is really sad. I’m hoping it will get better as time goes on?...More

  The only thing I can say is... DON'T GO! It was terrible...I spent almost $50 for meal that we threw away. Save your money.  The shrimp were totally inedible. And the fries greasy. The potato salad was only potatoes and miracle whip. Chicken burgers...More

This is a take out place with a restroom in the back. Outdoor seating with tacky plastic flowers in the planters. I had the steak sandwich with a side of fries and my wife had the tuna melt. All were very good.

Madelyn's has a wide menu from fish to burgers and more ice cream dishes than you can eat in a summer. There is a pleasant back yard with tables shaded by trees, and a steady flow of tourists and locals.

It's always good, fresh fried seafood and a pretty extensive menu, something for everyone! Great for families and a wonderful kid place, they have a playground and ice cream!

This is now pretty much the only place on the island where we go to eat, usually ordering take-out and eating on our deck, although there is plenty of room at their picnic tables and a great playground for kids. It's the best fish burger...More
