A popular seafood/smokehouse destination with tasty food and, incidentally, good options for most paleo-ish diners. They don’t make claims about organic/wild/grass-fed/natural ingredients, and the gluten sensitive menu bears the usual caveats, but if you’re looking for an indulgence on a low-carb, paleo, or similar diet you’ll likely find something to delight. Review is based on Deforest location, but they’re also in Madison and Verona.

Despite the name, much more than oysters: seafood, steaks, roast duck with parsnip mash, vegetable sides, seaweed slaw…
120 E. Wilson Street, Madison
Menu features wild and grass-fed options, many local and organic, and inspired side options. Try a flight of house pickles or roasted bone marrow (omit bread). I really want to try the Graze burger, but feel weird about omitting the bun on something costing $21. Rainbow trout may be best piece of fish I’ve ever had, lacinato kale was fantastic but wished there was a bit more. Lots of “gluten free” (vs. paleo) options. Would like to see a true paleo dish (no grain, dairy, legumes, seed oils, sugar) on the menu, and a breadless option for sandwiches – perhaps a bed of greens.
