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... read more

Close by our house. We've been here literally dozens and dozens of times. Earlier this year, it changed ownership. Some changes to menu. It's just not as good as it once was but the market bar, i.e. create your own stir fry, is pretty much as good as ever except that they changed the rice noodle to something less desirable.... More

This place use to be great but like many other places they have changed up their menu and taken off some of my favorites. I was very sad to see that they no linger have the chicken satay, it WAS awesome. I did the build your own stir fry and it was dreadful. The bean sprouts tasted moldy and the... 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.
