Always delicious food and service very good! Every excuse we find to eat out here we do. Personally I love their fish and chips meal! Other family members have favorites as well.

While visiting the madison area with my daughter, who will be starting grad school in the fall at Wisconsin, and my wife we visited Gus's for dinner and to say the least it was not as good as advertised. Service was marginal and our waiter seemed disinterested. Food was average. I had the beef rib special and the portion size... More

Had been passed here several times but never stopped. It's very cute from the outside and we were hungry so we stopped. There was a fairly good sized menu available. The prices were about average and the food was pretty good. The wait time for the food may have been a bit too long for the little amount of people... More

This 1950's style, bright and shiny diner has a great variety of dining choices. Wonderful fresh salad bar and good soups. Sandwiches, Dinners and Breakfasts are all very good with plentiful portions.

We stopped in at Gus's Diner on our way through town to try some good 'ol American Diner fare. The food was great! The portion sizes were larger than expected and we took home more than we ate. The staff was kind and the food tasted wonderful. This was one place where all 4 kids said "next time we come... More

Worth the wait if you plan ahead. Hubby says corned beef hash is thee best. Several vegetarian options right there-no modification needed! Yum! Fresh pies but never have sampled. Oh and super cute atmosphere!

We have been here twice and both times service has been not good. Food is ok. This last time I had the French dip and it was so very tough it was not edible. We might try again but not for a long while

Went there on a Friday night as we had heard about their fish fry and we were not disappointed. The place was just packed and we got the last parking place in their lot. Figured we would have a long wait but were seated in less than 10 minutes and they took our order almost immediately. Food was served hot... More

This is our go to place for breakfast. Go there any Sunday and you will probably have to wait for a table. The service is always great. They have a small salad bar that is well stocked. You will also see Gus out mingling with the customers from time to time. Lunches and Dinners are ok, it's great 50's diner.

We usual go for breakfast and sit at the breakfast bar. We've been coming here for over a year. The food is sooo good and the portions are perfect..even on the bigger side (no complaints here). We usually have one of their skillets. The staff is so nice and are always there to refill our coffee! I can't say enough... More
