Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent wait staff and the sea food was well prepared and fresh. They have very good sushi selection. The tempura was light and quite delicious."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Sushi was really good with just the right amount of new ideas to make it interesting. The view of the River was excellent, and I can't wait to go back when its nice enough to have the doors open. Interior design was great! A little strange that the service was so slow considering there were only a few tables full."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "It seems appropriate to be looking out on the river when eating sushi. This contemporary, energetic restaurant has everything a sushi-lover could want. The list of available sake is also impressive. The quality of the sushi rivals restaurants on the coasts. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I loved the atmosphere. This place is where it's at!!! The sushi is amazing. The pear martini even better!!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "This food would be amazing at any time; however, S.I.N. Sunday was a steal. $15-17.50 specialty rolls for just $7.75! Lots of other great sushi at discounted prices. They do it all again on Monday nights, adding tapas/apps to the discount mix. Highly recommended, especially on one of the S.I.N. nights!!!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Located on the riverside with an open patio for summer dining. Simple, clean, mod atmosphere. Despite my party showing up with one additional person, the restaurant accommodated us nicely. The service was great, with suggestions for various sushi rolls to share (sadly out of yellow tail tuna tho). Warning, the screaming tuna roll packs a punch (in a good way, if you like spicy hot)! I had asked in my Open Table reservation comments whether they had anything "special" for birthday celebrations (we were celebrating two birthdays within our group); to our happy surprise, at the end of dinner, the waiter brought out two delicious desserts, complete with candles! I would highly recommend Screaming Tuna restaurant."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "the waiter was rarely around to assist us. The crab Rangoon was outstanding, their signature rolls were over priced and not very good quality. Nice Sake selection, but again pricey. Beautiful scenic view, will probably never go back. The menu is not very extensive, Fujiyama is much better quality food, better selection, more options, cheaper, and friendlier service. I will not be recommending this place to anyone."

  • "This is the 2nd year my wife and I have gone for the Valentine's day special, and not once have we been disappointed. The food is delicious, and the service is fantastic the very second you walk in the door (literally!). It was a bit loud, but with how busy it was, it's to be expected."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everything but the seating was great. We reserved our dinner plans 4 days earlier and the table wasn't a table but a place to eat at the countertop bar by the food prep area. I do understand the place was busy but I think they overbooked and did a very poor job of managing it. What's the point of a reservation for a table for two if we going to be placed at a bar facing the kitchen."

  • "We dined at Screaming Tuna for New Years Eve and Valentines Day. Both times we had the special dinner and special it was. Wine and special drink offerings were very good. Food selection and quality, just superb. Service was very good but not exceptional. Only problem with this place is the nose factor. There is nothing in the restaurant to absorb the noise of the other diners and when it is busy the noise level is almost deafining. On weekends lots of young people congregate and try to talk (yell) above the fray. In summer when the doors are open it is not quite as bad."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "For reference - I ate the following maki rolls: spicy tuna, philly, spider, signature, champion. We ate on feb 15 (saturday after vday). I was very disappointed. I order a spicy tuna, philly and a spider everywhere I go. These were, by far, the blandest rolls I've had. It almost seemed as if the spicy tuna was just minced tuna. My wife enjoyed the signature roll and thought the champion roll was okay. To me the only thing I tasted with the champion roll was the wasabi mayo - which carried no wasabi flavor. We also ordered the crab chipotle wontons. The sauce was a nice touch, but the mixture carried no flavor of chipotle nor any noticeable crab meat."

  • "Our waitress was so attentive and sweet. The food was delicous. I can't wait to go back during the summer and check out the great river view."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Went on Valentines day for my wife's birthday and we had a great time. Probably one of the best sushi fusion place in the Midwest."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We love sushi and Screaming Tuna is the best sushi restaurant we have had the pleasure of dining at. Highly recommended. A must eat."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Such a neat location, right on the river. Loved the view, and while I dined in winter, imagine it would be just fabulous outdoors in the summer. I met a colleague for dinner during the week and we shared the edamame (delicious) and a couple of the Maki rolls. I enjoy sushi, but am not a connoisseur by any means. Thought it was just delicious - the mango especially. Our waitress was knowledgeable and very kind, gave us lots of space but was still attentive. Would go again for sure."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "The entrance is the entrance to the condo building.. One would think it would be under the huge Screaming Tuna sign. No parking. popcorn squid.. greasy.. almost raw hot saki- the bottle was hot mango roll- chilled.. too cold. yuck eithe icecream or tempuara bananas for dessert. was ok.- not rushing back... was given the bill which included the previous diners at our tables order.. We we stood up to fix... server was already saying...oh its wrong isn't it... She knew but didn't fix it... was she waiting to see if we would pay the whole thing?"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The sushi at Screaming Tuna is good. I would say above average definitely by Milwaukee standards. It wasn't outrageously exceptional, but my friend and I fully enjoyed all seven rolls we tried. We went on a Sunday night for 1/2 price rolls and sushi, so I was a little leary about the freshness of the fish, but everything tasted very fresh. The service was fast and friendly as well as accommodating. We wanted the mango roll, but prefered it with fish, so they gladly added salmon to the roll for an extra $2. Two rolls I would highly recommend are the El Hamachi and the Kraken. There were so many different textures and yummy flavors going on in the Kraken it was a real treat. The El Hamachi was a nice contrast because it was so refreshing."

  • "Awesome place for sushi. We've eaten at Screaming Tuna several times. The food and service are always excellent! Great deals on Sunday and Monday."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Food is always excellent here. Fish is very fresh and the making rolls are fresh and a great combination of flavors."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Great place for special occasion, every day dining or even business group. Great food and atmosphere."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Definitely coming back next time I am in Milwaukee. Great location and great fresh take on sushi and Asian cuisine. Only thing I did not like was our waitress read the entire menu to us and we were new to the restaurant... not to sushi. So it was a little off putting and time wasting but other than that she was great! And I HIGHLY recommend the ginger hot saki!"
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "The food was excellent as it always is. They have updated the menu and unfortunately don't have the caterpillar roll anymore :/ Crab won-tons are one of the best apps in the city! Signature roll is great! Our table ordered at least half of the specialty rolls and everyone loved them! Don't bother with the royal punch if you like to taste your alcohol, it's a huge glass with not much liquor in it. For me if I am going to buy something with medium-top shelf liquor, I would like to taste it!"
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "The sushi was amazing, the saki and drink selection outstanding and the service was impeccable!"
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "A lot of hype behind this place. The sushi was just "okay." Nothing to get excited about with the price that they charge. I would say this place is overpriced, definitely. Best part of the meal was the appetizers. Service was outstanding though. Waiter really knew his stuff. Too bad the chefs didn't."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "Mmmm I had the Tempura Udon Noodles. It's like two dishes in one and I will definitely get it again! Yumm-o!"
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "My girlfriend and I were in Milwaukee on a mini-getaway weekend from Madison. We were at hotel and randomly (luckily) found Screaming Tuna off Google Maps because it was so close. We were seated on windows facing river and Milwaukee skyline. View was great! Waiter was excellent and he recommended a number of items off menu. Food was outstanding...and service was quick! Overall, not one complaint or suggestion and we will be back. Good vibe. Very enjoyable!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "While the location and ambience is outstanding, the sushi leaves me skeptical. The fish in several of the rolls about which I inquired was imported from Thailand, Vietnam and/or the Russian Federation; all locations that have warnings or fish consumption advisories due to the way the fish is farmed and/or the manner in which the fish is caught. On a positive note, however, the Wagyu beef roll and the vegetarian rolls were delicious; as was the saki!"
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "I thought this was some of the best and freshest sushi I have had in Milwaukee. It is also has a cool atmosphere. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "I loved this restaurant, atmosphere and the view! I was a little disappointed that most sushi options had something spicy on it."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "Screaming tuna was quick to seat us and very attentive with drinks and food. The rolls were very fresh and a grey variety on the menu. Fast service and a great evening!"
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "First time eating here and it was great! Just my wide and myself in for a late night bite on a Tuesday, ordered aps and sushi, really good?"
    Dined on 10/22/2013
  • "Awesome variety all the sushi you can imagine and the. Fusion food"
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "The sushi was very good, excpet the soft shell crab sushi and the spider-man roll's soft shell crab was a bit undercooked and it was kind of hard to eat and it hurt to swallow. Please cook it fully. But the flavors of the sushi were fantastic."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "The food was incredible and the service was great even on a busy Saturday night. Will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Everything was just ok. I have had much better sushi in Madison for equal or lessor prices. Room was loud and the table wasn't very comfortable, though we did have a view of the river. There are a lot of restaurants offering that view though, so it's nit enough to outweight the negatives. I wouldn't go back or recommend the restaurant. The rest of my party felt the same."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "I mentioned we were coming for a birthday and they stuck us in the corner by the kitchen so we had an awful view. It appeared to be the one table without a view which made it all the more disappointing as to why thy would put us here on a requested special night. It would've been nice to been seated where we could look out, seeing as I made reservations plenty in advance. Excellent food but poor set up and service for our special occasion."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "The nice thing here is that it's right on the river but on the opposite side of the river where all the really hot places are. That means you can actually find some parking. They also just opened up a cool wine bar next door. Great for a date night."
