We came for my sister’s 21st birthday. Originally it was going to be 5 of us, but we had a few relatives show up at the last minute as a surprise. The staff accommodated us and the service was absolutely exceptional. The food was outstanding as usual (and our guests are restaurant owners who are very picky!).

Great service and food. Made it very enjoyable and is spaced out for comfort and helps with noise. Great for date night or special occasion. The service was amazing.

We went to celebrate a graduation. The sushi was pretty good (not the best we’ve had) but pretty expensive. The location is nice along the River.

A mixed experience for our first time visiting Screaming Tuna: The ambience was busy, but an open view of the waterfront toned down the bustle. The tableware and setting was very attractive, but from where I was sitting I could see a cracked lampshade and a broken cabinet door.

The sushi too was a mixed bag. The salmon nigiri was one of the softest, most delectable I've tasted after eating at sushi restaurants on both coasts and my travels to Asia. However, the smoked salmon and charred octopus were as tough as shoe leather. The miso soup was warm (not hot) when served and the sliced button mushrooms, although a nice touch, were undercooked.

Probably the best part of the experience was our waiter Jo who was a pleasure to interact with. His demeanor was warm and accommodating.

Screaming Tuna may very well be one of the best sushi restaurant in the Milwaukee area, but we'll likely opt for a restaurant closer to home as there was nothing that stood out to make it an essential stop.

My cocktail was great, our servers were wonderful, cool place, amazing view, and our appetizers were really yummy. But our sushi rolls, usually our favorite part, were just not good. One was so fishy we each ate one piece and no more, the other rolls had really tough seaweed paper. It was so disappointing. My husband and I love sushi rolls and were really looking forward to it but we were both very sad.

Fantastic experience for our 28th anniversary weekend! We had never been to Screaming Tuna before, and the food, customer service, and overall experience were excellent. Our server was training a wonderful young lady, and they were both amazing humans. We will definitely be back, and will definitely recommend to others!

Brandon the server was amazing! Other than that, it was not a positive experience. Manager/bar tender was extremely rude! He yelled at my sister and swore at her for absolutely no reason. Will never ever come back to this place!

Excellent service food and view! We went here for a birthday and major plus have celiac disease and they were extremely accommodating and knowledgeable! Have gf soy sauce available. Our server also brought out birthday dessert and we had a great view of the river. Even with the rain the view is all glass. The sushi was also very fresh!

A lovely dinner! The waitress was wonderfully friendly and made excellent recommendations. The food was super delicious, and portion sizes were surprisingly large! A perfect outing. Only complaint is that the location has no good parking options.

We had been several years ago and went back because it was very good. The server we had was very nice and friendly. He checked in often. The crab won tons were delicious. Unfortunately we did not love ny of the rolls. The spicy crab was dry and hard to get through, the sweet potato had no salt, and none had good flavor. Unfortunately we will not be back.

They also should get a sign on the door entrance, we watched no less than 8 parties walk around under the riverwalk sign in confusion looking for the entrance.

Food was awesome, had to wait at at least 20 mins before anyone attended with water and taking our order. Women at the check in didn’t look happy. Our server once assigned, was excellent, came several times to check in, and got the kids food before ours as requested.

The service was great. But the sushi was what we would call
Average. Not bad just not great. We wanted to try it here as our favorite milwaukee sushi place is not open right now for dine in. Screaming tune seems to cater more to the trendy crowd. Seemed like there were a lot of couples on first or beginning dates. Which isn’t a bad thing just not what we typically go for.

Our dinner was amazing! We got a table right by the window with a great view of downtown. My daughter had the chicken (huge serving!) and I had the Final Form specialty roll. It was excellent! I felt safely distanced from other diners and completely comfortable being there.

Always Screaming Tuna is one of my favorite dining experiences in Milwaukee. Even during the pandemic I had a great experience. Tables were far enough apart, servers all wore masks and food was top quality. Can't wait to dine in again!
