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 here, crisp, not greasy and always very fresh haddock. We also love their fried clams.... More

Absolutely recommend the seafood and the ice cream and sandwiches! Staff and owner are friendly and customer focused! I would go as much as I could. Scallops, haddock and clams are super fresh. They bake their turkey breast to use in sandwiches and the corn bread is so good. Wish we had something like Madelyn's in SW Virginia!

Had an excellent supper of burgers and fries. Very well cooked and tasty. The sundaes we had for desert was huge and priced very fairly. I had the Banana Split that was Fantastic.

Not many places to eat on DI... Madelyn's has good fast food including lobster cooked on site and your standard roadside fare. My only complain is I wish they stayed open past 7:00 to get some of their great ice cream...

A good quick stop for food on Deer Isle. Food was just okay for the most part (though the lobster rolls were tasty and the burger was good too). Some things were a bit too greasy. Expensive for what you get. But, the shakes were GREAT!

My husband and I had a small lobster roll and a fishermans platter as they call it here. It had a little bit of everything in regards to seafood. The haddock was moist and the clams delicious, along with scallops and shrimp. The lobster was just picked and very fresh. Where we come from in New England all seafood is... More

Popcorn shrimp served though "shrimp" was advertised... Mounds of French fries and two pieces of haddock for 28.99.. Very average fried seafood.. Popcorn shrimp buried in batter... Outrageous prices... Family of four bill well over $100 for a mind of fries, some slaw and below average seafood... Never ever again...

Lots to choose from! Sandwiches are delicious. The prices are great and service is quick. Nice picnic benches to sit on and a play area for kids. Cash only FYI !
