Alex Madonna’s Gold Rush Steak House Restaurant Review

: Yes, there is a whole lotta pink going on in this old-school dining room, but that’s just something you have to expect at the Madonna Inn, a Central Coast destination. Underneath all the frou-frou décor, however, is a solid steakhouse menu. Enjoy a starter of locally made linguiça sausage, then move on to classic entrées such as prime rib, grilled swordfish or a filet mignon and lobster tail. All the orders come with soup or salad, sides and bread, but if you can still manage dessert, you must go for a piece of the Madonna Inn’s signature Black Forest cake or the pink Champagne cake. The wine list reflects the restaurant’s wine country location, and there’s a full bar as well.
