Some of our family met up at Topsail Island for Thanksgiving. We decided to head here to eat lunch. I kind of had doubts at first, but it was really good. They had the traditional Turkey and dressing with all the trimmings. They also had fried chicken, fried shrimp, BBQ. Grilled chicken, fish, and too many sides to list. They... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I love to eat snow crab legs and they are so expensive wherever you get them. This restaurant is not fancy, very casual , family friendly. The staff are very friendly as well. The buffet offers your standard Southern fare , including prime rib which unfortunately continues to cook while sitting on... More

Went to Madison's since we heard it is a good place to eat. The food and service was good. Desserts were ok but not too great. The food was basics like chicken, beef, pork, etc., if you wanted seafood there was an extra charge. Definitely worth the money.

Our party of 7 adults and 2 toddlers went on a Friday night. We were greeted by Carrie and when I shared our concerns about a shellfish allergy she went OUT OF HER WAY to accommodate. Not a fancy place. But, for 16.95 each we walked away with full bellies. The salad bar was good. Some of us tried the... More

My only complaint about his place (and it has more to do with the customers than the restaurant itself) is that it's a real pain trying to get crab legs off the buffet. Maybe a better system would make the dining experience more enjoyable. Like having someone hand out a cluster at a time instead or having people wait, crowding... More

We have been here many times and the food is always good, not great but good southern cooking. We always have the buffet and have never been disappointed. We live locally and tend to go more often when the damn tourists are not in town.

There was plenty of seafood and salad items to select from at Madison's. It's not a fancy place but for $12.49 we ate great!

Arrived around 7 on Friday night, very busy and several large groups coming in. As a party of 2, we waited almost 45 minutes to be seated. Seemed chaotic and crowded, but when we were seated, the restaurant was almost empty. Not sure what was going on that night. Crab legs and salad bar were good, limited selection of food.... More

All about the all you can eat Crab Legs. Though I'd advise you to get there early. We ate about 430 and never ran out of crab legs on the bar but I could see it getting a little hairy the more busy they are. Only place we found all you can eat buffet at the beach. We were all... More

The food is ok. Lots of fried or overcooked items on the buffet, I haven't ordered from the menu so, I can't speak to the quality of that food. The BBQ on the buffet is awful, the fried chicken is very good. Salad bar is ok.
