Madison’s™ opened its doors in April of 1982 at 216 Madison Street, after extensive remodeling. In the spring of 1983, the neighboring building (214 Madison St.) was purchased and remodeled, increasing the size of Madison’s™ Café to 7200 square feet with seating for approximately 200, lounge seating for 40 and two private dining rooms accommodating small groups or up to 120. A large outdoor patio was completed in 2002. We have continually updated the aesthetics of the restaurant’s interior and exterior: modernizing while respecting and maintaining the buildings’ rich history and integrity, with a mixture of warm woods, rich colors and various antiques throughout. Both 214 and 216 Madison St. have been different types of restaurants since the late 1800’s. Madison’s – a Jefferson City Tradition since 1982.
In 2019, Madison’s became an official Historic Landmark. Through the City of Jefferson, The Jefferson City Historic Preservation Commission, the Historic City of Jefferson and the Jefferson City Council, Madison’s – 214 and 216 Madison St.- was named a Historic Landmark in May, 2019. To quote from the City of Jefferson Historic Preservation Commission and the Historic City of Jefferson: “The two buildings exemplify the cultural, political, economic and historic heritage of the city.” Further, according to the Cole County Historical Society “for the first 100 years of its existence, Madison Street was the heart of Jefferson City.” We are proud to be a part of that history, and on this historic street. The plaque is proudly displayed on the front of the main entrance to Madison’s.
