Alex Madonna’s Gold Rush Steak House Restaurant Review

: With all the over-the-top pink at the one-of-a-kind Madonna Inn, you might not guess there’s solid steakhouse fare being served, complete with soup or salad, sides and freshly baked bread. For starters, order local abalone, linguiça sausage or an old-school relish tray. Classic entrées include the top sirloin, the brown sugar-brined pork chop, and the surf ‘n’ turf plate of filet and lobster. Dessert has to include a slice of the 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.
