Our meals were the same, very flavorful and light for the summer. You didn't feel weighed down afterwaeds. The exec chef at... More

My wife and I just had a wonderful dinner at the Crazy Water. Service was excellent and every item that we had exceeded our expectations. We would recommend to everyone to give this small restaurant a visit.

We went there for dinner and the food was excellent! We also ordered the Camembert appetizer and I would drive here again just for that. So good.

I would recommend Crazy Water to everyone. I have been appreciating this restaurant for many years and I will continue to patronize them. The food is fantastic and consistently top notch. Whenever I am looking to a great meal, I know I can count on Crazy Water to make it happen.

We recently booked a reservation at Crazy Water for 5:45 during Milwaukee's Summerfest celebration. We were told it would not be too busy because many people would be on the lakefront at the fest. This is a small, very small, eclectic restaurant. It is a bit smokey due to the kitchen being right at the front of the restaurant. I... More

The staff are exceeding knowledgeable about the food and the wine. They are very pleasant. The food is exceptional. Truly the best restaurant in Milwaukee. Many will claim the the top spot but this place takes it.

We returned last night for another visit to Crazy Water. We were lucky enough to get a table on the patio. It is not quite as crowded on the patio as it is inside, and it is a beautiful setting. We ordered veal tenderloin and halibut. Both dishes had a beautiful presentation, and they were both delicious. Because it was... More

We have dined here a number of times with mixed experiences. We took out some friends from Chicago and had a great dinner. The wine list has a great selection and is very reasonably priced. The scallops were cooked perfectly, I just wish the sauce wasn't straight melted butter with lemon, the herbed rice was delicious-with a pesto sauce, the... More

I enjoyed my food, and it's very Milwaukee\Quaint but it's so small, that it felt kind of cramped. Because it's loud, I havent wanted to bring a group back with me. I think I need to go back for a second experience.
