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.

Great food and generous portions. Great fish and chips and great breakfasts and burgers and fries Their pecan tarts are homemade and hard to resist. Always pleased with everything we order. Our favorite place to eat in Stratford

I'm pretty sure they are closed on Mondays, so it depends on when you looked.
