Shooters, Madison, Indiana

Madison, Indiana is a quaint little town on the banks of the Ohio River that has a great reputation as an arts and music community.

We were in town for a late lunch/early dinner.  Being an arts community, as we wandered around town looking for some place to eat, we saw French, Italian, and other ethnic restaurants…but that wasn’t what we were looking for.  Then we stumbled upon Shooters pub…and I’m awfully glad we did.

Although it’s themed as a sports bar….it’s not overwhelmingly sports.  It seemed more to me like a neighborhood pub.  We were greeted by a friendly server, and the menu had typical pub fare..burgers, nachos, fried cheese….and a few items with a twist..which we’ll get to later.

I saw they had grilled or breaded tenderloins, always a good sign.   When I asked our server  “How’s your breaded tenderloin?”, she smiled and said “REALLY good”.  So I ordered it.

Folks, really good is an understatement.  This is one fine sandwich.  The meat was tender and tasty, the bun was outstanding, the breading was very light and crispy and stayed crisp throughout the entire life of the sandwich.  There are lots of words I could use to describe this sandwich, but the sandwich simply speaks for itself…a 5 out of 5…no questions asked.  We are going to be back in Madison this summer, and there is no doubt we’ll be back at Shooters.

For the rest of the menu, there were a couple of nice surprises in the Po’ Boy selection.  Holly had a fried clam Po’ Boy, and Nick, who joined us, had a fried shrimp Po’ Boy and both of the proclaimed them excellent.  Sweet Potato Fries are also featured on the menu.

Shooters is a non smoking pub…a big plus in my book…with a friendly, casual atmosphere and great food and service.  I don’t see how you could go wrong with a visit!

Shooters is located at 122 E Main Street, in Madison, Indiana.  I was unable to locate a web site for them.

  1. Hey Rick…Great review (as always). Out of curiosity, I did some checking and found a cool Youtube video about the place. I thought it might be a good addition for your readers!

  2. “fried clam Po’ Boy”… I’m going there next time I’m in Madison just for this… I’ll try the Tenderloin on the 2nd visit. Great review Rick!

  3. Next time you’re down there, try the one at Madison Lighthouse Restaurant on the River as well. I’ll have the one at Shooters next weekend. Thanks for the heads up on a great sandwich.
