How We Got Started

I'm Scott “Jobo” Madden, owner of Madden’s Seafood.   I grew up in North Raleigh and graduated from Millbrook High School. In 1998, I moved to Topsail Island, NC. I opened and for many years operated a successful seafood restaurant in Surf City. While in Surf City I met my wife, Lesley, in 2000.  Together we have 2 beautiful daughters, Reagan and Molly. 

Beginning in 2007, each week I drove home to north Raleigh to sell seafood on a part time basis. In 2013, I moved back to the Raleigh area. And now each week I return to Surf City to pick up the freshest catch of the day and then deliver it back to north Raleigh to "bring the freshest seafood to your neighborhood."  

Please stop by and get to know me as well as the best seafood that North Carolina has to offer.
"Let us Bring the Beach to You!"

My seafood selection changes each week based on season and availability. I check with my contacts each week to see what the fishermen brought to market. Check my store each week to see what is available. Also, don't forget to subscribe to my weekly newsletter and I will keep you posted on the weekly catches and specials. As always, feel free to email me ( or call me (910-376-1900) if you don't see what you are looking for and I will try to find it.
