Outstanding food, service, and overall experience. Any time I dine at Crazy Water it is a delightful experience. It is amazing what comes out of that tiny, behind the bar kitchen - the chefs are outstanding!
What a hidden gem! The food was excellent and loved the personalized service.
Food was delicious and our server was great. Nice variety of selections on the menu.
Amazing food. Staff was great. Wonderful experience.
Food was really good, with one small exception. The soup had shrimp in it, and the tails were still in it.
excellent food and service. unfortunately we had a show to go to and could not relax and enjoy the leisurely pace of our meal when we received our final dish. this was due to poor planning, and a weather delay arriving to the restaurant and was no fault at all to Crazy Water. I wish we could have relaxed with an after dinner drink or dessert, but we had to leave. we enjoyed the Wednesday night appetizer platter as well as a few other dishes to share between the two of us. nice portions and presentation as well as great flavor. we will be back!
We love Crazy Water! Never a bad experience.
Always wonderful !!! It’s been that way for years and never disappoints.
My wife and I went on a neighbors suggestion and were pleasantly surprised . Very timely and efficient service. And really tasty food to come out of such a small kitchen. Very delicious.
The short rib dumplings were a delicious way to start our dining experience. The grouper and crazy shrimp were excellent. I can’t wait to go back for the grouper. The mustard sauce made the dish. The service was attentive. Very charming atmosphere. It was a great dining experience. Be sure to have a reservation.
W.hat a way to celebrate my wife retirement. We have looked for years to find a go-to place for celebrations (since Steven Wade's closed). We found it. You're so happy by the time you leave you almost want to cry. The food is creative and superbly cooked.
The appetizer bao buns were really cold and the place is too cramped..The servers were too busy to attend to guests..Overall a place not worth the price..
3 of our 4 dishes were outstanding. The other, the scallops, something not quite right, but they immediately replaced with new meal at no cost. Great service and ambiance. I have been here before and would certainly come back.
Delightful dinner for our anniversary. The Crazy Shrimp was simply amazing!
It was a perfect birthday location and also very romantic. The food and service was amazing!!
This was our first visit and it was extremely enjoyable. The food was just perfect for my husband's birthday celebration as he loves Beef Wellington. He said it was wonderful. His special birthday treat of bread pudding with vanilla ice cream was delicious...I stole several bites!
The service is casual, but very thoughtful and comfortable. The decor utilizes the space and creates a cozy and warm atmosphere. My only comment is the noise level...a rather energetic group of eight seemed to dominate at times.
It was a wonderful evening!
We have been enjoying Crazy Water for years. Our recent visit was most delightful with excellent food and service. I like the cozy atmosphere.
I am always impressed with this restaurant, which is why it’s been one of my favorites for years. While I could wax on forever about how delightful every dish was, I would tell anyone to order whatever appeals to them on the menu and rest assured it will be amazing.
Always a great place to celebrate a birthday. Grouper was fantastic and the veal was superb I was told. Only complaint was that a companion's scallops came to the table cold. They gave it a shot of hotter sauce but I could tell she really did not enjoy it. It was a very busy night.
Crazy Water is a steady Eddie, a restaurant in MKE that never disappoints. Open concept kitchen, those chefs never stop working. Love the fact that the menu selection is not too large so that the meals offered are well done and delicious. Was PACKED on a Saturday night. Luckily are table was ready right on time.
Great, small place with fantastic food. Hope to return to try more items from the menu. Be sure to order the biscuits!
Great food, excellent service
Excellent food and service. But be prepared for it being very loud.
Consistently excellent. Amazing that all the cooking is visible and on the spot.
Excellent food; some of best in city. Veal scaloppini was very good.
Brought in a group for my wife's birthday and they set us up in a back room. Fantastic food and drink with great service. Will be back again.
Great date location. The fish, steak, and starters are always on point. If service is running behind they will notice and pitch in a bottle of wine and starter like they had done so in the past for us. They were not behind this time and we were seated immediately and well served throughout the night. Recommend reserving a table a few weeks in advance. It’s always busy because the food and service is so good!
We got the table in the back room. Everything was excellent, from the salmon to the chocolate tourrine dessert. My boyfriend is hard to sell on fish, and he even gave it 5 stars. I also recommend the buttermilk biscuits to start... only $3 and enough for one or two people!
Would love to visit again. Thanks, Crazy Water!
Great food. They have something new all the time, with great service too.
Such a great atmosphere. We went on NYE and you can see the cooks making the fabulous food. It was so good, we personally tipped the cooks for their efforts! Will defintely go again.
Great food and service. Would recommend to anyone who hasn’t tried this place out.
Great food and service as always. The scallop entree however seemed small. But other entrees were a nice size. Delicious.
All 3 people in our party thoroughly enjoyed their shared appetizers, entrees, and shared desserts. The building that looks more like a house than a restaurant, and has steps to enter.
Visiting from out of State and had high hopes for this place based on previous reviews. It was no more than average at best. Don't understand whatsoever the appeal of this place. Would not return or recommend.
Christmas Eve dinner. It was last lovely!!! My
Favorite restaurant in Milwaukee
Crazy Water is crazy good! Server staff is fantastic and the food is phenomenal! We will definitely be returning.
Small, dark, shabby-chic, poorly ventilated spot in Bayview. The two cooks in the front window dish up overpriced, small portions from their dirty little fry pans but they call it "a fine dining establishment".
We’ve been coming here for years and always enjoy our meal and the ambiance each time we visit. The food changes seasonally so the menu online may not always be accurate, but the menu always has a plethora of delicious options.
Went for my birthday. Added a couple extra diners on the same day. The staff was very accommodating. the food was absolutely divine. The parsley crusted grouper with hollandaise was to die for. The fish was perfectly cooked and all the flavors married very nicely. The whole party did not have one bad bite all night long.
This is truly one of our favorite places in Milwaukee. Such an intimate venue with fantastic wines and an evolving menu that has never disappointed. Each visit is better than the last, and starts us planning the next one.
