“Great, great Shrimp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

If you love shrimp, this is the restaurant for you. Kenny, the Chef, only serves fresh shrimp and he knows how to cook them. Fried is his speciality as he has a "secret" recipe, but we also love his steamed platter.

The menu also includes oysters and fish and for the non-fish lovers, a few "land" items, but we also stick to his shrimp.

Kenny has had several restaurants throughout his career in Madison, Georgia, and he always seems to hit the mark and not disappoint. He's also one of those restauranteers that is supportive of the community which is such a plus.

If you are traveling, don't miss this restaurant when in Madison and don't be turned away by the building. It doesn't look like much from the outside but there is an experienced Chef on the inside. No beer or wine, just downhome iced tea! Give it a try, if you haven't already.

“Hole In The Wall Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

My wife and I stopped by the Chowder House after hearing from 2 friends that it was pretty good. It's located on North Main Street in Madison in an old Dairy Queen restaurant location, so it's not very big inside. This is a no-frills atmosphere place. They have an early bird special with $1-$3 off entrees before 5:30 p.m. They are open 11:00 - 9:00 p.m. tuesday thru saturday. My wife had the fried clam strips, and said they were pretty good. I had the fried shrimp, and they were tasty, and had 10 on the entree. You also get your choice of 1 side and the salad bar, which is kinda small. Prices are okay with a typical entree after 5:30 p.m. being $12.95. The hush-puppies were frozen and pretty tasteless. Kim was our waitress and very good with lots of personality.
