We were a mixed party of people including hard core carnivores, gluten free and fish eating vegetarians so a restaurant with bbq and seafood was a good fit. The bbq is tasty but the sauces at the table are not to my liking (smoky or mustard). The fresh seafood is well prepared and tasty. We were there on a Friday... More

Fast service, amazing cornbread, and good food. The restaurant takes reservations so if you're going during a busy time make sure you call ahead. I had the pulled pork which was great and my partner had the fish fry which was okay. I would definitely recommend getting the barbecue over the other food.

First off, I'm not here to unfairly bash this place. I'm not a food critic and I've never actually left a review for a restaurant before. But after this meal I felt compelled to leave one. This experience was an utter disappointment. We started off with an appetizer - cheese curds because, well, this IS Wisconson after all. These were... More

If I matched the reviews correctly, your wife left a similar one on Yelp for us. I am sorry you were disappointed. As I responded to your wife, the items you mentioned are popular and well received. We were short staffed in the kitchen last night and it sounds like it showed at your table. I have discussed this review... More

Went for an early dinner, 3pm on a Tuesday afternoon. Ordered cornbread with jalapeños and cheddar for appetizer, it was delicious. Had the smoked brisket and coconut shrimp combo. The brisket melted in your mouth and the 4 shrimp were large and yummy. My husband had the pulled pork and catfish combo. Both were great. Each meal came with 2... More

Our group of 6 loved the 5 seafood entries ordered by all but me. Our seared tuna hound scarfed her seared tuna salad in a New York minute. My brisket dinner was the worst I've encountered in over 5 years. The brisket was very fatty. Hard to find any lean section to eat. I love brisket. Every month or two... More

North and South Restaurant has a great relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the food is wonderful. We love the pulled pork, smoked ribs, beer can chicken and fish fry. The cornbread appetizer is perfect. The French fries are excellent, but so are the grilled veggies instead of fries.

Fantastic Friday fish fry! All-you-can-eat fried haddock for $14. Excellent! Fabulous, friendly service. Super bartender (Nina). Get there early on Fridays (by 5:00 or 5:30) to avoid wait for table.

Every Saturday this restaurant has smoked Prime Rib. Oh YES. My dining companions were both swooning and so happy with this smoky, tasty, juicy meat. Get this- but go early because I hear they can run out. I have also tried their yummy brisket, the ribs and the pulled pork. The kitchen here knows what it is doing with meats.... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Madison area. The food is always spot on, great service and reasonably priced. We've never had a disappointing experience here. I'm sure everything on the menu is great but I always end up getting the firecracker shrimp and Mac n cheese. My husband gets the prime rib, he's a bit picky... More

Description
We originally opened as Joey's Seafood and Grill in 2005. We added smokehouse items to the seafood favorites we already served. We are now North and South Seafood & Smokehouse. We want our guests to enjoy the cuisines that both my husband and I have enjoyed throughout our lives, living in various parts of the country. We hope guests will associate North and South with excellent seafood and smoked items, from Alaskan halibut to Texas style brisket. We have a full bar that serves craft cocktails designed by 3 Count Beverage, craft beer and a nice selection of wine. We have the earliest happy hour on the west side of Madison, 2:45-6:00 daily, with other daily drink and food specials. For lunch we can get you in and out quickly or would love to cater your business luncheon. Locally owned and operated by Keith and Erin Stoesz.
