Crazy Water's contemporary menu is based in tradition and utilizes seasonal, local and organic products when available. Attention to detail is evident in our product-driven menu showcasing the purity and quality of the ingredients in all of our finished plates.
Hamburger was raw. Service was great. Outdoor seating was also very nice.
I have been there quite a few times. Its a favorite to take out of town guest. This time was not too good of an experience. IT TOOK OVER AN HOUR AFTER OUR APPETIZERS to get our dinner. The server apologized and offered up a desert for the table.
My veal scaloppini was disappointing. Our guest didn't care much for his entre.
The noise level at times was overwhelming.
I am hoping it was just an off night and will probably come back sometime in the future.
We love, love, love Crazy Water! Always a great meal and terrific people.
We hadn’t been to Crazy Water in a couple years and are so happy we made our way back. Our service and food was spot on. Such great variety on the menu and delicious flavors. We won’t wait stay away as long from this gem of our city.
Sat on the patio. Very comfortable. Food was outstanding. Had the salmon and the halibut. We had not been here for a while, and we will return more often.
Everything was great as it always is when we are there. Love the outside dining that is bug free.
We love the patio! It's the best in the city! On a warm evening, there can't be a better spot in the city to enjoy a great meal!
Great food..great drinks..great service!
Was quieter d/t time of my reservation..but still a great time.
Great pop pop platter for an app!
Great halibut! 👍🏻❤️
I can’t wait to get back to Milwaukee so that I can return to Crazy Water for dinner.
Crazy Water is one of our favorite restaurants and we will return. However, on this beautiful evening it was so extremely cold inside the restaurant that both of the men in our party, wearing short sleeves, were chilly. The woman, fortunately wearing a spring jacket, was comfortable. Our server informed us that once the cooking started up, it would warm up. This never happened…
The noise level was great - we were the only diners eating inside!
The food varied. The veal scaloppini was wonderful, tasty and tender. However, the lamb tenderloin, a special, had little flavor. The meal did not include any appetizers or dessert.
Excellent as always. Great flavors & interesting menu to choose from. Bacon wrapped dates a hit as always. Salmon, veal, halibut & crazy shrimp all excellent.
Great food and service as always. Would have liked to sit outside.
I can always count on Crazy Water for wonderful food. This time we took out of town guests and ate on the patio. Beautiful setting and easy conversation. Everyone raves about their meal. We started with grilled artichokes, then a beet salad that was the night’s special, and we all had different seafood. My scallops were perfectly done and the mashed potatoes with goat cheese I still think about. How they do it in that tiny kitchen no one knows. Had a wonderful wait person also. Lovely evening.
Delicious as always
I took my girlfriend on a date here, perfect choice. The outside dining area was lovely, the evening sun filtering through made romantic lighting. Our waiter was amiable, described dishes and responded to questions with aplomb. And the food was exquisite! We ordered the Wednesday pupu platter, five appetizers, each one delicious and beautifully presented. Afterward we ordered the duck to share. Marvelously prepared, we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was so amazing, but then the waiter suggested we try a dessert... And we were honored to try the most scrumptious cheesecake I've ever had. Everything came together to make an unforgettable experience! Thanks Crazy Water!
Food was good, but not as Great as I expected based off reviews and compared to other area restaurants.
Food was good and our server took good care of us. It's a crowded space and noise levels are above average but what I expected from other reviews. I would try it again.
It was the hottest day of the year so far. And they were without Air conditioning. Which was uncomfortable but we gave it a shot anyway. We had oysters, artichoke and the shrimp. The oysters were great. The artichoke was nothing to write home about it was drowned with ranch. The main meal we had the shrimp. I thought it was just ok. It was way too sweet for my liking. I don't think I would try it again crazy water again. I heard it was amazing. I would say it was par.
We were there Friday night7-19-19, I love this place
It was our second time there. We will make it one of our regulars and we live in Delafield.
Thank heavens my husband and I like hot weather
Because Friday night the air conditioning was broke. We just chuckled but that is us.
Fabulous food, great service and I love the overall
Charm of the resturant.
Great ambiance and service. Upscale food with zero pretentiousness. We loved it!
As on other visits, Crazy Water keeps the quality and creativity and service at a high level
Very nice ambiance in the back garden area. But there are issues with the menu. The flavors of the Veal Scallopini with Beurre Blanc did not mesh. Heavy flavor of thyme in the breading overwhelmed the dish. Buttermilk biscuits were not biscuits at all but were actually pretzel rolls. Daughter did not love the Crazy Shrimp which didn't have chorizo as stated on the menu, but chunked beef.
Crazy Water never disappoints! Food was excellent, especially the salmon. Service was top notch as always! Thanks Crazy Water for another great dining experience!
Our waitress was fantastic. We try to eat out at different restaurants throughout the Milwaukee area and keep coming back to Crazy Water. It’s the complete package; great food, fantastic service, and a delightfully enjoyable atmosphere.
We will be back!
This food here was excellent. The only down side is that it did get smokey and hot as the hour passed. We got there around 7 and by 8 the room was pretty hazed and getting hot. We started with the burrata and that’s how it should be done!! I had the shrimp and grits - it was better than I could have expected. My friend had the veal and it was also delicious. If they would figure out a way to vent the area, it would be 5 stars all the way around.
Food was outstanding, served piping hot. Impressive display of superb cooking coming out of a minuscule kitchen. Chefs work under hot battle conditions and put out quality entrees.
Food was really good, our table was a bit dark, AC could have been a bit cooler.
One of my favorite places
This restaurant has great ambiance along with a unique menu. I particularly like the back patio. Food and service were very good. A great choice for a date night or special occasion.
We love this place! It has an intimate atmosphere but gives diners plenty of space to enjoy the meal. The food is exquisite, the service is fantastic and the location is great for parking and walking alike.
The 2 counter seats at the bar are one of my favorite spots to eat in the city. Diverse menu that always changes, good wine list. Great intimate feel inside. Amazing how much those chefs do with the tiny space of this kitchen - it's fun to watch.
Really enjoyed our dinner at Crazy Water. The service was great. The cocktails were perfect and the food was delicious. Three of us had the halibut and we loved it. One had the sockeye salmon. Everything was great and our waitress was very attentive and friendly. I love this restaurant!
WOW! Amazing , very creative , but not crazy , just leaves you craving for more. We had the taco special appetizer, brurota, salmon and cherry chocolate chip bread pudding with maple walnut ice cream. How they put out such incredible food from that tiny kitchen is hard to imagine. Friendly , attentive service ~looking forward to going back!
Oh my god, we had forgotten what a delicious and creative restaurant this is. What an absolute treat it is to have a restaurant this delicious and reasonable in Milwaukee. We won't make that again.
The seafood was really good however the lack of ventilation and fully open kitchen area right next to the bar, meant it was very smokey in the entire space. If you can get one of the two tables in the “back” it’s a much pleasant experience.
Absolutely love this restaurant! The menu choices are fantastic and the crazy shrimp is so delicious! Loved the atmosphere of this restaurant.
Getting together with friends from out of town. Great time
There were 6 in our party and none of us had been to Crazy Water in years. All of he food was outstanding - the Halibut and the Bavette steak in particular stood out. Crazy Water is now on our short list. We can't wait to go back.
