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.More

Wonderful dining experience, fresh local seafood, very relaxing atmosphere. The staff were great and very attentive. We really enjoyed having dinner at this restaurant. If you are in the Beaufort South Carolina area, take a trip over to Port Royal to visit Madison’s. You will...definitely love this restaurant. Especially if you love fresh local seafood served with some good old southern charm.More

I'm sorry but this place is a little over rated and in my opinion over priced. The food was just okay.

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!More

Second visit in a week! Love their food...love the quaint house setting...love all the gluten free options...love their service...love their crab cakes... This is my favorite restaurant! They take reservations, because of limited seating. Good Covid precautions... Alcohol drinks available... Love and highly recommend!!!

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.More

We made reservations because trying to find a place to eat on the weekends was quite the challenge. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. Portions were huge!

Worth every minute! We were itching to dine in at Madison's for quite a while tonight we had a fantastic experience. We were met at the entrance by Cody who welcomed us in and explained their precautions during our experience. Once inside we were welcomed...by everyone and even had the opportunity to say hello to CJ (chef) before sitting at our table. Well our food was outstanding and our server was exceptional and to top it off Cody stopped by again to ask how everything was. Everyone from stepping in to leaving was wonderful! We will be back.More
