The Nau-Ti-Gal Restaurant

Nestled along the Yahara River at the north end of Lake Mendota stands The Nau-Ti-Gal, Madison’s favorite casual waterfront restaurant since 1982. A visually stunning location serves as the backdrop for The Nau-Ti-Gal’s equally impressive food and service. Chef Adam’s emphasis on fresh and local ingredients has inspired a menu sure to please any palate; whether you’re looking for an out-of-the-box option like Fontina Sirloin, a traditional Wisconsin Fish Fry, or a juicy burger made from fresh local ground beef, The Nau-Ti-Gal has you covered. Our friendly and accommodating staff can’t wait to welcome you into our restaurant, so grab your family and friends and meet at The Nau-Ti-Gal!IMG_7068
