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

I had been traveling all morning and this was my first visit to Madison. I wanted to try something new and different. I chose North and South based on recommendations and I was not disappointed! As soon as I walked in I was greeted and asked to select a table. I chose a both by the wall and was presented... 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

After a long day of meetings I wanted a nice meal and drink. I found this place on trip advisor but was apprehensive since it was near a major mall in a chain restaurant area. I was happy to be wrong.... the food , drink and decor were all above average. I had fish and it was done very well.... More

The grilled cheese brisket sandwich is amazing. Add a little of their homemade sauce and you may have the best grilled cheese sandwich ever. Side of fries included are relish as well. Small bar to have a cocktail while waiting for a table. Big menu includes fish fry on every day of the week.

Amazingly awesome barbeque! Something for everyone. Such a nice variety of meat (ribs, pulled pork & chicken, brisket, etc.) and seafood (shrimp, salmon, tilapia, perch, etc.) Can't decide? No worries, you can try a combo plate. Daily specials for lunch and dinner. My husband is a "meat and potatoes" guy who likes to cook and grill. He tried the ribs... More

We were a mixed party of people including hard core carnivores, gluten free and fish eating vegetarians so a restaurant with bbq and seafood was a good fit. The bbq is tasty but the sauces at the table are not to my liking (smoky or mustard). The fresh seafood is well prepared and tasty. We were there on a Friday... 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.
