Located at Northbrook Court Mall, this Stir Crazy location is larger than average and larger than you would expect. At this restaurant, you can order directly off of their traditional menu, or you can create your own "crazy" entree. For dinner, the vegetable-only option is $12.99 with your choice of noodle and sauce. You can also add chicken, beef, shrimp,... More

Watching the movie on a week day, we went to this establishment without any reservation and we were escorted to our table immediately. The menu is varied to satisfy hearty and healthy appetites, including vegetarian options. The service was quick and friendly. We enjoyed our movie/dinner outing.

This trip the food wasn't at all salty. I had the shrimp tacos and tofu tacos which were excellent. The hot and sour soup was also delicious. The service was polite, and efficient. I have no cause for complaint.

Share a few of the appetizers and avoid the over priced entrées. Seemed pretty fresh. Drinks seemed over priced too.

You can pick your own ingredients for the chefs to stir fry or else pick from the many delicious items on the menu. Try the tuna poke appetizer - it is amazing. Good place to bring the family - the noise level will allow your children to be themselves without annoying other diners.

I've been to Stir Crazy many times before and it has long been one of my favorite restaurants. However, this time I found that everything we ordered was simply too salty. Furthermore. I had a very unpleasant taste in my mouth of restaurant food. I hope that Star Crazy will improve in the future.

The food is wonderful here...fresh and flavorful. I tired it the first time in milwaukee wi on a business trip and loved it. This place had terrible service it took us several min after being seated to be greeted and offered a drink. After finally placing our order we waited still for our build your own bowl. The buffet was... More

We've gone to Stir Crazy of Northbrook, IL on occasion over the past 5-10 years and always find it to be reliable place to go---nice, lively atmosphere, kid friendly and usually pretty good food. My latest visit several nights ago was no different, though my self-created chicken stir fry with thai sauce was a bit bland....Perhaps i should have added... More

Been to several of these across the US but this one is SO LOUD I actually had the same sensation like I had just left a Rock concert when I walked out. Good is great service too. But I strongly recommend outside seating, or ear plugs. Probably a great place to go with that special someone you don't ever want... More
