Worth the wait for a table. Salad bar was fresh with many options. Fried fish and fries so good! 3 big pieces of cod and a plate of fries. You'll definitely need a to go box. Char grilled oysters were really good!

Truly a gem. The food would compete with the best steak house, or seafood restaurant. My husband enjoyed a generous baked cod stuffed with shrimp and crab. The seafood chowder was way underpriced for the quality (don't tell them!). All this excellence in dining while...More

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.

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.
