This place needs an update! Their exhaust system didn’t work so we were greeted by a large, noisy fan. Food was floating in overly sweet teriyaki sauce and the proportion of rice to entree
Was 75/25 - the plate was mostly rice. Service was awkward and inconsistent. Not a place that I will return to in the near future!

The food is always good. I ate there about a month ago on a Friday evening, and the AC was broken and they did have fans. I was told the AC was to be fixed the next Monday.
I dined there last Friday evening and the AC was broken and again I was told it was going to be fixed next Monday? What's going on!

The food and service were very good. Their air conditioning was out but the had portable units and fans so it was not terrible. A little noisy and breezy depending on where you sat.

We had a family dinner on Saturday at the Northbrook location. When I arrived, there were fans located in various places throughout the restaurant. The air conditioning was broken. The fans were extremely HOT and noisy and could blow you around. The hostess sat us at a round table and it was very stuffy and warm. Since it was not busy at all, I got up and tried various locations to find a place to sit that was better! It was still very humid in there and windy. My parents hated it! You couldn't talk over the fans. The stir frys were very oily. My dad had chicken and got sick about 2-1/2 hrs later. I was not impressed that management never even tried to compensate for the air conditioning being broken. Other restaurants would go out of their way to compensate a group of people. The waitress was great though - she did what she should do. Management - did nothing!

Food is ok. Pad Thai not very authentic in flavor. Restaurant has been around for awhile and the menu reflects that. Air conditioning was not working. Actual menus were worn out.

The food was good and the service was good. The problem was they were having a/c issues and no one really addressed that with us. Just sat us across from a very loud industrial fan. If management had at least acknowledge the problem it would have gone a long way to calming us all down.

The food was terrible. Ordered an Asian salad that Used to be wonderful. It was eating a bag of salad that they added a few pieces of almonds and chow menu noodles . Dressing tasted like it came out of a bottle.
My husband’s sesame chicken was all Grizzly!
Service staff was very nice and accommodating. Manager was nice, comped the grizzly chicken.
Ate outside because their air conditioning didn’t work!
We had been going there many times over the past 20 yrs, but won’t be going back.

I hadn't been here for a while and was very disappointed compared to previous visits. The food ranged from just ok to genuinely bad. The waiter was pleasant but a bit inattentive conferring how few people were there. I won't go back.

We really enjoyed our family dinner there with 3 young kids. Something for everyone on the menu, which is not overwhelming like in some restaurants. They offer fewer items but execute them really well. Produce was very fresh and tasty in all dishes.

Veggies were rotting at the “create your own” station. Old water without ice was off to the side and just given to us that had clearly been sitting there before we even sat down. Very surprised at how this restaurant has changed over the many years since I originally started coming here. It used to be more of an slightly upscale restaurant and now it is just mediocre if that.

Sister Casey was a pleasant surprise! It is very conveniently located in Northbrook Court mall, which is a great place to go to if you’re doing some shopping or if you want to take in a movie at the AMC theater that is also in the mall. Stir crazy has daily specials and My husband and I went on a Tuesday night, and ordered the pad Thai for under $10. It was huge, delicious, and mouthwatering! We can’t wait to go next Tuesday to have it again!

I had a good experience at Stir Crazy Fresh Asian Grill in Northbrook Court. It was a good place to go before a movie and the food options were OK. The appetizers were a bit overdone, but well priced. The entrees were good with large portion sizes. The service was quite excellent!

Service was lacking. I asked multiple times to get water, serving silverware etc.. it was a very quiet night, it should have been easy to give attention to guests. I also think the servers need some training on how to be a good server. I used to enjoy this restaurant but this time was a disaster.

We always enjoy Stir Crazy, but noticed some changes. Prices are higher and portions smaller. The restaurant was understaffed the night we were there. Not good signs.

We have gone often, but the last few visits have been going downhill. Last night was the worst experience we have had there. My wife's meal was never prepared properly as she had asked. The sushi in now mostly rice with miniscule fish inside. My market place dinner was fine, except some very spicy ingredients somehow got into my bowl. My daughter's meal was great.
I have had several issues with the bill being wrong, so I have to check carefully. Once, I even received someone else bill by mistake.
Life is too short and there are many restaurants looking for our business to go back to Stir Crazy. Too bad since we had liked it and it is convenient. Oh Well!
