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.

I had steamed mussels, the salmon with a side of rice, and salad. It was delicious! I was very happy with the quick togo service.

We thought we'd sneak in for a good meal during the Super Bowl, believing that everyone else would be occupied, and we weren't far from wrong. Their menu is homey and varied, with the smokehouse varieties especially enticing. Jambalaya, and Pork and catfish were our choices, both excellent, hot and accompanied by wonderfully cool creamy coleslaw. We've been several times... More

I went to this restaurant for a work lunch meeting. They had daily specials as well as lunch specials available. I was pleasantly surprised by the range of choices. I decided upon the grilled shrimp, which came with two sides. It was so nice to have the choices of fresh mixed vegetables, which were especially fresh and well seasoned. One... More

Just good, tasty comfort food with a nice wait staff. I had the grilled cheese and brisket sandwich with a cup of chili. It was delicious.

We ate at North & South tonight. We were pleasantly surprised. Both the food and service were very good. The menu is almost evenly split between seafood and barbecue. Most of us had BBQ. Many different smoked meat combinations to choose from. Also about 5 different sauces on the table if you want to add flavor. Prices are very reasonable.... More

My husband and I were treating our nephew (a UW student) to a dinner and a movie and chose 'North and South' due to proximity to the theater and reviews of great smokehouse food fitting a hungry young adult. We were not disappointed. My husband cannot eat onion or even onion powder and he had 2 attentive servers who gave... More

The crab legs are large and delicious. They were served with excellent mashed potatoes and coleslaw. I tasted the beef brisket which was amazing as well. Server was attentive. The only downfall is that it is small and a bit loud.

I finally stopped in for lunch to try the new menu. I had the combo lunch of pulled pork and pulled chicken. But first, came the brisket chili; and wow, what a chili. Traditional spiciness hits first, and then comes the sweet, followed shortly by a little heat. Keith, one of the owners, acknowledged the sweetness and (rightfully) wouldn’t disclose... More

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.
