Fun and delicious

I loved the food in here, the service was great, the decoration in the restaurant was really good, the concept was good but not original. Overall the restaurant is nice.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Crazy Water after reading all the good reviews on Trip Advisor. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. Our service was incredible. We started with the pork belly appetizer. I've had pork belly at many restaurants before, but this beats them all. I had the halibut for dinner and my... More

My husband and I went here with another couple. When you first walk in, you see the small kitchen to the right. It doesn't appear to be anything fancy but the food will tell you otherwise! It is very small so I would recommend reservations .The atmosphere is very cozy and warm. We were seated in the very back. They... More

The food was the best I have had in recent memory. We did the pork belly appetizer followed by the skirt steak, halibut and the nightly special swordfish. The steak and halibut were exceptional dishes. The swordfish was very good, but the others were just more distinctive in flavor and sides. We even had desert which really was too much... More

My husband & I went to Crazy Water for my birthday dinner, it was highly recommended to us by a close friend. I read the reviews & was very much looking forward to it, as they were all pretty good. It really does have a nice ambiance. However, it is a very small, crowded dining area. The staff were all... More

So-so is the only way to describe Crazy Water. The tables are cramped in together and the menu is limited and very funky. We love new foods, however this was just weird. Hard to even find things to eat on this menu

Seating was a bit tighter than we prefer. We did have reservations but ended up practically sitting with the couple next to us. Fortunately there was enough noise to offset this, so we had privacy for our conversation. Food was good, service was good. We had the Date App, Hangar Steak, Halibut, and Bread Pudding dessert. Nice dinner. I wouldn't... More

I couldn't believe how great our food was here. My husband had the salmon and we both were impressed at how well prepared our fish was. The tables are very close together here. Making it difficult to feel any privacy at all. It is a darker atmosphere that some may find cozy, I prefer light and bright. I would recommend... More

By heeding the advice of previous visitors, I visited right after opening on a Saturday night. I didn't want to have to wait a long time without a reservation. I was seated right away on the patio. The flavors will fantastic, starting with the mushroom soup. Made with lemon and thyme, it wasn't a thick soup but it was wonderfully... More
