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 were going in a large group so I went to speak to the owner about gluten free options. They really accommodated me, even finding margarine for me since I am celiac and dairy free. The wait person, Nina really went above and beyond for me and the rest of the group. We would go back there again.

We were looking for some place to try During a recent trip to Madison, and found North & South on Trip Advisor. We couldn't indulge in any of the smokehouse meats (Friday/lent) but there was a nice array of seafood options. The fish fry & breaded shrimp were the favorite of out visit, served piping hot with a great, crispy... More

Describing North-South is a bit challenging for me, based on the only two meals I've eaten there. On my first visit, I ordered the pulled pork meal and was served a very generous amount of french fries and almost as much pork, which unfortunately contained a noticeable amount of fat. Ugh. The waitress was cool but not unfriendly, but the... More

We've been here twice now and have had success both times. Without a doubt the brisket is TO DIE FOR, so if you can't decide what to get on the menu, get that. We will be eating here again. The first time I had the Boise, A Salmon covered with cheesy potato goodness. This last time I had the brisket... More

Went back this time with my wife for a great dinner. Tried the shrimp appetizer which came bathed in a chunky tomato sauce and topped with cheese and accompanied with Texas toast wedges. My wife had the cheese crusted tilapia stuffed with crabmeat in a rich, creamy garlic sauce and it was delicious. I knew why I came back -... More

We ordered ribs, which were okay but overpriced; and catfish since we were fairly close to the river. Maybe it was just that fish, but it was rubbery and tasteless. Weirdest catfish I've ever tasted. Was it catfish? The service was great and the manager gave us a discount without us really complaining.

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.
