Enjoy the inviting feel. Excellent food. From burgers and crab cake sandwiches to perfectly prepared local fish and steak. The She Crab soup is honestly exceptional, not as heavy as most; get a cup! Deviled egg flight is yummy. Creamed corn and Brussel sprouts are amazing. The Wedge Salad is a meal and a price performer at under $7. Bartenders know how to prepare a high level cocktail. The screened-in back porch is lowcountry perfect and the bar is friendly and cozy; if you can find a seat you're immediately a local.

Finally a restaurant in Beaufort I can get behind. This was such a wonderful find. I visited with my daughter after an appointment one afternoon. The service was cordial and attentive, food was expertly prepared and the drinks were delicious. We had more than enough to take home. My only criticism was the entrees came out on top of the appetizers. Not a deal breaker at all. I'll simply tell them next time when we are ready for them to fire the next course. We will certainly be back. The seafood grits is a must try. Loved the tuna tartare for the app. My daughter had the burger with sweet potato fries and the she crab soup. Delish!! I own a restaurant and I'm picky about where I will eat. This makes the top 3 for sure.

Madison's restaurant in the town of Port Royal (near Beaufort, SC) is a hidden gem in the low country. I ate dinner there in July 2022 with a group of 8 people, and we all had delicious low-country dishes that were served in the friendliest place around. Plates are very reasonably priced between $15-25 for a main dish. It's a great place to meet locals and visitors alike. I had the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer and the seafood linguini as a main dish. They were both delicious and served with 'Disney-style' perfection! Wonderful place to go for cocktails and/or dinner!

We were a party of 9 that ate there on Aug. 13th (Friday eve) for a Birthday celebration with family (from out of town) and friends. We were seated in the middle room on one of the hottest days with no a/c or fans going. Needless to say, by the time our entrees came to the table I was dripping wet, burning up from the heat as well as some of my guests. I had mentioned this to our waitress and was told, "I know, tell me something I don't know". Not a good way to accommodate paying customers. We ordered apps, soups, salads and entrees. By the time my 3 tiered Seafood Tower arrived, I was done as I was super hot, miserable and burning up (I also suffer from Asthma). Did not get to eat 1/4 way through my Seafood Tower as I lost my appetite. My family notified me that their meals were just ok, and 1 person said they did not care for theirs at all. We wrapped what was left of my Seafood Tower to go and asked to bring out the Birthday Cake out as the only thing I wanted to do at that time was get the hell out of there as I felt I was suffocating! My husband footed the $600.00 bill (plus gratuities) and left. I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone, ever! Between the so-so food and the no ventilation, not a good mix for a pleasant evening dining out. Sorry Madison's you lost our business (and we do dine out very frequently - especially to your competitor down the street).

We all ordered seafood, and it was almost all over-cooked. I sent my shrimp back because they were literally like rubber, and the replacements were just as bad. Side dishes were great, however, but we would not return. We sat on the porch and it was nice. The restaurant is cute with very limited parking. I wish they had better food...pricey for the quality

I discovered Madison’s through Find Me Gluten Free app as I have celiac disease and it can be a struggle finding safe places to eat. It was a 45 minute drive but well worth it. Very friendly staff, casual, welcoming atmosphere, great food and a real treat being able to have things to eat that I normally cannot (they use rice flour and have a separate fryer so no cross-contamination issues). Ended up going back nightly when I was in SC and was made to feel like a local when I went in each night!

The , the service, and the atmosphere made for a special evening out with friends. We started with a bottle of good chardonnay, followed by a dozen oysters on the half shell that were fresh and delicious. I enjoyed absolutely the best stuffed flounder I have ever tasted. Everyone else raved about their choices. We did not have to box anything for take out. Our plates were clean. Excellent restaurant.

I reserved a table for my meetup Beaufort Vegan & Veggie Dine Out. I had called a few days ahead asking if the appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes could be made vegan and was told no. Being newish to the South I was sad about that. Lo and behold, at the event, the chef said he could do it and I ordered 2 plates. They were delicious, as was my vegan burger. The Mojito was the best I have had in SC. Real ingredients and a lot of mint leave, like my beloved Miami. Great waitress. Will return . Thank you, all!

Rustic atmosphere with good selection of seafood (crab cakes, mahi-mahi, shrimp and grits, salmon, burgers, etc) and a large selection of wine, beer, and mixed drinks. I would definitely recommend making reservations. The entrees run about $25 per entree and there is a kids menu. The chef was very attentive. We saw him multiple times during our meal. My only complaints were that the music was a little loud and the tables were really close together so we had to make room for people trying to squeeze between the tables multiple times.

We had high expectations but there was nothing special about the food. We both ordered the captain's platter and found the 5 fried seafood items average at best. The appetizers were the highlight of the evening with both the chargrilled oysters and and crab stuffed mushrooms very yummy. The server was friendly and attentive to our needs. This meal with tip was $100 and it definitely wasn't worth it, we'll think twice before going back.

I was expecting food like I got at Moon Doggies. I ordered the Moon Doggie, the shaved prime rib. There was hardly any beef in the sandwich, the roll was boring, the beef was full of fat. I ended up giving the meat to my dog who was with me out on the porch. I faced the inside of the restaurant at my table and the windows were filthy. the fries were drab. I was planning on eating here a lot during my vacation but would never ever go back. It was really sad and bad..

Not my first trip to this restaurant, however, I will definitely think again before I make my next reservation. Upon arrival, our group of 8 were taken to the back porch and were seated in a very small area with no air-conditioning. The outdoor temperature was mid 90's!! Totally unacceptable NOT to inform me when I made the reservation that this was going to happen. To say that I was embarrassed to host three couples who had never been to this restaurant is an understatement. When we ask about the other large table in the airconditioned room we were told that table had be reserved prior to our reservation. Yes, the food here is good but I am upset at the lack of transparency. Disappointing that a reservation in the summer heat needed to request an air-conditioned table.

Excellent food- I had the chefs special and very impressed 5/5 flavor. The chef deserves some praise when he brings it to you! Friendly waitstaff, white tablecloths and fyi Madison’s is near full capacity on a Thursday early evening. Pretty interior, classy, fresh fish and small cute bar with happy friendly customers. Great place if you’re in the area.

Went tonight for my 27th Anniversary. Started ok, but our waitress (young dark haired lady with tattoos) was non-existent. She hung out outside with young men by the front door. I watched the hostess have to go find her to bring us our food. Our food came out cold, obviously due to our inattentive waitress. The $33 bottle of wine with its screw off top could have just been a $3 bottle from Aldi. Aldi probably would have been better. A complete waste of a $150+ meal for me my wife and our daughter. Maybe we got a bad one, good luck to anyone else that tries. I am VERY patient with the difficulty with labor, but this was beyond disappointing! Food was marginal at best. Only tasty plate was the Red Snapper special.

Madison’s was a delicious surprise. I had heard that the food was good, but did not expect GREAT! My pan-seared salmon special was delicious. My sister had steak that could be cut with a butter knife and my niece raved about her crab cakes. Our server, Amber, was the charming icing on the cake!
