Outside dining with prompt service. Recommend cocktails, Trout salad dish and signature Pizza! Good vibe and upscale atmosphere. Fun to sit up at the bar and chat to fellow travelers.

If you are staying in the Highlands/Cashiers area don’t miss out on Madison’s. Reservations are a must but no detail is forgotten. I had the duck and my husband had a steak. Both of our meals were delicious.

Stopped into Madisons for our anniversary, first clue should have been that it was almost empty at 7pm on a Saturday. It is the best restaurant on the property but keep your expectations in check.

I see an answer below on no outside seating. That is incorrect. The Wine Garden has plenty of outside seating.

Dine indoors year-round or outdoors in the warm months at the Wine Garden beside the beautiful waterfall. (Breakfast service is for hotel guests only.)
