Description: 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.

I love to go to Joey's for the Monday night Crab legs all you can eat special. The crab legs and sides are great. If you like other seafood, they have that too. Enjoy the muffins too!

When you live in the Midwest you know you'll have to make allowances when looking for seafood. Happily, this isn't true at Joey's seafood. Once part of a franchise chain, Joey's is now owned and operated by a husband and wife team who provide great food at wallet-pleasing prices. In an area where every restaurant has a Friday Fish Fry (even at the steak houses), Joey's consistently delivers delicious, high quality food. We regularly visit Joey's for their Wednesday fish fry that offers a two-for-one special on their fried cod or haddock dinners. The fish, fried in a crunchy beer batter, is served with cole slaw and some of the best french fries in Madison. They also offer something they call potato cakes which are like deep-fried hash browns with cheese that are equally yummy.

They also serve a variety of salads, soups (the clam chowder and seafood bisque are both excellent) and sandwiches including a lobster roll that brings back memories of Maine. And yes, for you midwestern carnjivores they even offer a more than decent steak dinner.

If you're looking for a nice, unpretentious place for dinner on Madison's West Side (near West Town Mall), Joey's is certainly worth a visit.

the food was okay, had grilled shrimp which was very dry. The clam chowder was tasty. The waiter we had was very good answering all of our Madison questions.

My wife and I were looking for a good seafood place while out for our 25th anniversay and came across reviews of Joey's. Everything looked great online so we decided to give it a shot. When we arrived at the parking lot it was touch and go whether we would actually stay. From the outside it looked more like a small strip center take out place. Boy are we glad we actually stuck it through and went inside! The service was top-notch and the food was great! Neither of us had anything negative to say about our dishes (Seafood Trio/AYCE shrimp). All was cooked perfectly and was obviously fresh, not frozen.

We will definitely return on our next trip to Madison
