Experience Madison's true treasures while you dine. Located on an isthmus and flanked by glacial lakes Mendota and Monona, Madison combines unprecedented natural beauty with some of the finest dining choices.
Sparkling Lake Monona plays backdrop to delicious dishes presented at Paisan's Italian Restaurant and the French American bistro stylings at Sardine.
Lake Mendota shares her shores with a number of lakefront dining establishments, including several owned for more than 40 years by the von Rutenberg Family: Mariner's Inn, Captain Bill's and the Nau-Ti-Gal.
Beyond Madison's biggest lakes, you'll also find peaceful waterfront dining along the Yahara River at Bourbon Street Grille. There, you can sit and enjoy the scenery while you dine on the deck or in the rooftop seating area. Or, enjoy waterfront dining along the Wisconsin River at Riverview Terrace Cafe, part of the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center experience in nearby Spring Green.
