Went to The Wharf for a special occasion recently and the day could not have been more perfect - we even scored a great table on the veranda right on the Sound. Each dish we ordered (and there was a lot) was prepared perfectly and...More

I have been there hundreds of times to eat and drink, but rarely to sleep. The food has gotten better over the last few years. Drinks are expensive but good with primarily a young wait staff. Rooms have great views and are a bit pricey,...More

While staying in Madison for a weekend away we were told by some locals that we had to at least stop by the Wharf for a drink. So that's what we did. We scored seats in the enclosed patio that faced the beach and enjoyed...More

Sat at the bar, not too busy on a Monday evening. Of the 8 people sitting at the bar, all of their food looked delicious! I ordered the clam chowder. Seemed like it had a potato base, but it was very tasty, as was the...More
