My husband and I enjoyed our meal. I had Crab Cracks and Cheese Curds. My husband had pulled pork and both meals were great. The server was very helpful and pleasant to talk to. I would go back if I ever return to Madison.

We ordered the coconut shrimp as an app and I had the Denali (cedar plank salmon) for dinner. The coconut shrimp was heavily breaded, it was too much. The Denali was fine, average salmon simply baked on a cedar plank with avocado salsa. The salsa had good flavor. Served with Potato cakes (pass on these, not good) and coleslaw. The... More

Had another great meal here. Brisket was tender and flavorful. Nice variety of sauces to top your sandwich or ribs. Great side items too.

So I can't give this place a "5" just because my husband and I have had BBQ and BBQ style sides in lots of places around the world, and this just isn't the best.....but it is a safe reliable bet. The sauces are served at the table, so one has their choice of the level of "kick" or "sweetness." The... More

The best item I had their Gumbo - nice pieces of sausage and chicken. I ordered the bbq pork and catfish combo. The catfish was a little better than average and the bbq pork (and bbq is what they are 'know for') was below average. What was most disappointing was their bbq sauces. I tried 3 and they were all...

I came to North South on a Friday evening with a friend for dinner. I really was excited about the idea of both seafood and smokehouse items in one place. I'd never heard of such a concept in a restaurant. There was about a 45 minute wait at prime time on a Friday night, which is not bad. I noticed... More

My wife and I have been coming to this restaurant for many years. I think they have the best crab in all of Madison! But I'm not going to lie, their catfish, and brisket meals are absolutely amazing as well. With such a diverse menu, everyone will find something they can love!

I visited North and South while on a business trip and I am very glad I did. I ordered The Denali, a cedar plank salmon with avocado-orange salsa, along with the homemade mac & cheese, and house salad with honey lemon vinaigrette dressing. All were very delicious! And for something different, I tried the macadamia nut coated fried ice cream.... 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.
