Very pleasantly surprised, thought it was more a burger place before going, definitely more than that.
Menu offers many options, we had grouper and trout which were prepared perfectly.
Server was very friendly and energetic... highly recommend.

Had dinner before the Prince tribute show. Ordered the calamari & fried tomatoes with our cocktails to get started. Both very tasty....especially the calamari. I ordered the arugula salad w/grilled chicken. I was disappointed bc it lacked flavor. I should have asked for a different salad dressing. My husband ordered the burger and said it was okay but the brioche bun was dry. We typically have a perfect food experience at MadLife but not this time. Our server a good job serving us despite having to ask for a glass of water twice....in her defense it was a very busy Friday night. It won't keep us from coming back though. We love MadLife! And the show was excellent......Purple Madness sounded and performed great!

Nice food and drink options. I had the blackened fish with potatoes and Brussel sprouts, and a light Cajun sauce. It was amazing! Our waitress was excellent as well! Will definitely be back before a show or any time.

My steak was perfectly cooked and the Risotto was cream and very taste. The Demi Glaze that came over the steak was delicious - I could have drank it!

Great place for a quick meal before the concert next door. The Country pork chop was delicious. We had great service and quick turnaround before the concert.

Fun place to eat before the concert! Service was great and atmosphere too. The food overall wasn't outstanding....scallops were delicious and so was the Asian Salad. But those that ordered the spaghetti, trout and fried chicken were not fans of those dishes. The appetizer of calamari was fair, but pretty bland.

Great as always! Pork chops were undercooked and sent back but we understood it was a very night as it was NYE. Mad Life Steak is still our #1 go to meal! Cooked perfectly as always! We love Mad Life!

The service was ok, not great but friendly. It’s was New Years Eve. The food was great, far above what we expected. The noise level was the biggest problem, couldn’t even talk with each other. It is a concert/shoe venue but we were there at 6:30. Show wasn’t supposed to start until later.

New Years Eve, generally a busy time anywhere. Pretty good experience overall. Server forgot about our table several times and had to get up to ask to order food. Food was pretty good. Would go back but not on a holiday.

Annual dinner with friends . MadLife is midway between our homes. Decided we would try some place new, and the photographs of menu items looked great so we decided to try it. We would have been better off eating the photographs. And, this is a live concert venue, so it is REALLY loud. Everything about this place is sub par. Don’t waste your time or your money.

The service was great but the food was subpar. The chicken tacos were dry and blan. The chicken sandwich had a very small piece of chicken with just a smear of cottage cheese. I mainly tasted the bun. Very disappointing

The food wasn’t as good as when I was there last about 6 months ago but it was still served hot and had good flavors. Waitress was pleasant. Drinks kept coming in different shapes and sizes, plastic and glass, thought that was weird.

Decided to go to MadLife for our Friday night dinner. We had never been in here, but have driven by a few times before. We sat on the outside patio where they had live music and heat lamps on. The inside of the restaurant was nearly empty but started filling up around 8pm. We ordered fried chicken and the country pork chop. Both dishes were great, but the pork was a little salty. The service was a little slow, but still great overall. Hope to go again and maybe try some more dishes.

This was our first time here and our first time in the town of Woodstock. The food was great. We had the pork chop special and it was cooked perfectly and to order. We also enjoyed the band on stage, Wrock Snake. We’ll definitely be back!

We made a reservation because we had a large group & a scheduled lunch break from an event at a local church. When we arrived, they weren’t set up for us. Then the waiter brought the wrong drink to one of our ladies and it took FOREVER for her to get a new one. We had to ask to order because we had already been there over 30 minutes (the restaurant was NOT crowded) and we only had a limited amount of time for our lunch break. There were 7 of us. After ordering our food, one of us NEVER received her lunch! We asked for our checks as the food arrived and we still had a problem when we clipped two checks together with one credit card: the server only charged one check to the card and then came back saying we had one outstanding bill that was due! The whole experience was ridiculous!

We sat inside away from the live band. It was still quite noisy every time they opened the door. The atmosphere is a little “biker” ish / hippy. Not the ambiance I was looking for. However, the food was great.

It was a perfect late afternoon to sit outside on the terrace under the fans, listen to fantastic music and eat a delicious dinner with friends. The service was friendly and very attentive. Then, after dinner, we went inside and enjoyed a hilarious line up of comedians for the evening. It was a perfect night out! Highly recommend.

The walls and ceiling seem to reflect the sound. That combined with the music coming from the patio in addition to the rehearsal sounds coming from the studio was quite overwhelming. The food was nice and I particularly enjoyed the street tacos.

We were here for my sister’s Bachelorette Party. We were seated on time of our reservation and promptly greeted by our server. Drinks were great! Appetizers were amazing! All 5 of us ordered something different for entrees and gave everyone a taste. We all agreed EVERYTHING was absolutely delicious!! Our little party moves out to the patio of live music and continued to have a blast. I can’t wait to go back with my husband!!
