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

Came here tonight after reading about it on here. Man, I am so happy we did! I had the prime rib. It was smoked. Probably one of the top two or three of all time, but first time having it smoked. My god it was amazing. Perfectly tender. Flavor was terrific. Would order that again anytime! Cheese curds were perfect... More

We had a pleasant experience at the restaurant on a Friday night. Arrived between 5 - 5:30, was seated right away. The service was good, our food arrived quickly and was correct and good. We have eaten here before, so that is why we came back. Would recommend it, they have a good selection of choices and pricing is good.

I can't speak to anything but smokehouse offerings-- the ribs, pulled pork, and chicken. All of which were excellent. Some of the best ribs I've had. Sides of fries were generous, but the bean and coleslaw were pretty small. I could see picking up a couple of racks of ribs and taking them home to my own sides. I often... More

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.
