I have been coming here for years. The food is good. My favorites are the halibut Oscar and the shrimp in a net. I miss the pickles in a crock on the tables.

This was formerly a great town favorite for seafood, but after an ownership change and ensuing employee changes the service and quality of food has suffered greatly. Slow, non-caring service and less than top-notch food is the now norm.

Another great restaurant in downtown Madison where the seafood is always prepared correctly, unlimited salad bar, and desserts to make everyone full by the time they leave this restaurant.

Great little place for seafood and dining. They treated my niece like a princess so she totally enjoyed it. She doesn’t like fried shrimp; they fixed her grilled shrimp. It was decorated well for Christmas and very friendly staff.

My husband and I really enjoyed our seafood. The service was very good as well. This place is obviously loved by the locals. Also, having an all you can eat salad bar was a bonus. The homemade desserts are wonderful and reasonably priced.

It was like stepping back into the 1970s but I can attest that my meal was delicious. I had the Seafood Norfolk, a shrimp and scallop dish in garlic butter and it was succulent and cooked to perfection. The meal came a trip to the...More

The food and service were outstanding. The owner took special interest in making sure we were well taken care of. Excellent seafood at an "inland" restaurant.

The Madison Key West Shrimp House is (or was) owned by the grandson of the founder of the Indianapolis Restaurant. He told us he worked for his grandfather in the old place for years before opening his own.
