Dine out on the waterfront while enjoying steaks, seafood, and cocktails

The Nau-Ti-Gal is a nautical-themed restaurant that has been serving high-class steaks, chops, seafood, and cocktails to the Madison area since 1982.

The talented team of chefs at Nau-Ti-Gal sizzle up and prepare the finest, locally-raised meats, including their very popular top sirloin steak dinner or applewood-smoked bacon-wrapped pork medallians.

Nestled on the banks of the idyllic Yahara River, Nau-Ti-Gal is the perfect restaurant for seafood and fish fries. From ocean-fresh Atlantic Cod, Coconut Shrimp, and Bourbon-Glazed Pineapple Salmon to the Wisconsin fish fry and “Baby Walleye” dinner with hand-breaded and deep-fried fish fillets, a seafood lover will have a hard time choosing just which dinner to have here!

In the warmer months, head outside to the outdoor bar, covered patio, dine at tables on the grassy lawn, and enjoy one of Nau-Ti-Gal’s many waterfront, outdoor concerts. Grab a volleyball and hit their sandy courts for some additional fun in the sun.

Brunch is a special affair at the Nau-Ti-Gal, with their four-hour all-you-can-eat brunch every Sunday morning until 2pm. You’ll be spoiled for choice with their bountiful buffet of options, including chef-carved prime rib, glazed hams, smoked salmon, shrimp cocktail, Belgian waffles, eggs, made-to-order omelettes, fruit, dessert bar, and more! Adults can add a loaded Bloody Mary or bottomless Mimosa to their brunch.
