This is a great night out. Try the Butterfly Effect (a cocktail). And don't forget the mochi for dessert. It was just the right amount of sweet to finish the meal.
Very yummy and reasonably priced. Our server was awesome!
First time eating here, wanted a good spot on the river to dine at. The location did not disappoint, our reservation was right before sunset and the scenery was beautiful. The food was good all around. their wontons were amazing and their sushi was definitely high quality. I have definitely had better but this was a wonderful experience! The service was great as well which always makes it more enjoyable.
Food and service were perfect! Vegan options are always great.
Richard was a very attentive and personable server, food was great, and the view by the river was a plus! Overall great experience would highly recommend !
The restaurant offers quality food at a fair price point. Our server provided particularly excellent service.
Screaming Tuna is a great choice for freshly prepared Sushi. It prides itself on ony using sustainable seafood, so it's a good choice that way, also. The service was very good! I highly recommend it!
Even though the restaurant knew they were short staffed in the kitchen and orders were taking over one hour to serve, our server did not address the issue, did not update us about the timeline and did not accommodate us for the trouble.
We eventually took the food to go. The server did ultimately apologize and offer us a discount but only after we waited for 1.5 hours and approached him 4 times about the food situation.
It’s fine if a kitchen is short staffed - it happens. What is not fine is for servers to leave their guests waiting with no explanation. Especially when you’re trying to celebrate an special occasion.
This was our first time at Screaming Tuna and we were extremely excited to celebrate our anniversary here. We made reservations as we wanted this to be a special night. I requested to be placed outside on our reservation and this is specifically why we came to the Screaming Tuna was for the view. We arrived to our reservation early and when we got there, there were 7 tables open outside. The tall male host told us they were seating us inside and we told him that we requested outside. After informing him of this, he told us there was a 1.5 hour wait for the outdoor tables. We told him there were multiple tables open, and we were there on time for our reservation. He rolled his eyes and scoffed at us multiple times and said we could sit inside or leave. We sat down at our table inside and that’s when our WONDERFUL server (Braden?) told us we could move to a better seat and provided the best service ever. Braden was so accommodating and made the night so special for us and made sure we had a great experience despite the horrible host. BUT we watched 2 tables outside remain COMPLETELY empty the entire time we enjoyed our meal. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!
TJ was a magnificent server
We loved having Brandon as our server. He was great for recommendations.
Great experience... delicious sushi! Love the view of the river. Our server was amazing. The birthday mochi at the end really made my niece's special day!
Good food...a nice combination of outdoor and indoor dining.
Great food and great service! Appetizers were much larger than we expected, which was a happy surprise!
Absolutely great experience. Haven’t been in years and this place held up to what we remembered! Always a favorite when in Milwaukee!
Our server was great! So friendly and the food was amazing.
Great service and experience. Acknowledged our anniversary from reservation and for a free dessert
Service was great, we ordered 4 different signature rolls but none of them gave anyone at the table a "Wow!" reaction. The Spicy King Crab is better than the signature rolls IMO. The place is good and worth returning to.
Awesome service and great food! My favorite place to take the lady out for a fancy yet affordable meal!
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.
Beautiful presentation and amazing food. Our fav sushi spot in MKE.
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.
Best sushi restaurant in town! Incredible drinks and amazing service!
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!
Food wasn’t as good as it normally was.
Jimmy was great! Food was really good. Great atmosphere.
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!
Food and location was great and our server was OUTSTANDING!! Highly recommended!
Great location very good food and service. Great setting wonderful evening.
Waiter was super friendly. Had the Spider-Man and some nigiri - excellent, and the wontons were super good! Cool swanky place. Great location and views also.
Very unremarkable. Lackluster atmosphere. Flavorless sushi rolls.
We had an excellent time at Screaming Tuna. It was my first time trying Sushi and the Waiter was very helpful when suggesting things for me to try! What a great experience!
Food was great as always & the server was super nice, but it did take them almost 30 minutes from the time we were seated for the server to come to our table.
Our server, Jimmy, was phenomenal. He's a keeper! Thanks for taking such good care of us!
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.
