Had dinner here with a friend. We had a great waitress named Amy. She was polite, funny and very warm. We took our time and never felt rushed. Nice entrees!

Had dinner with friends at the Madfish Grill. Really enjoyed the ambiance and I would call this a very nice seafood restaurant with lots of local patronage. The bar tender took great care of us and the food was amazing.
