Celebration at Crazy Water

4 of us marked a birthday at Crazy Water on a cold January night. The atmosphere is cozy - though it took a while for the back area we were seated in to warm up to appearances. That said, our waiter Paulie made us welcomed and he attended to our every request promptly and with a smile! We were... read more

I'm a bit remiss in the reviews of my Milwaukee haunts and I'm going to start with this place. I've been here a few times - and each time I wonder why it took me so long to come back. (One note about my rating system - I reserve 5 stars for outstanding places - but not luxury per se.... More

Visited Crazy Water for the second time this NYE, and had an amazing dinner. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Crazy Water is always on our short list for our occasional nice nights out!

Date appetizer was unique and tasty. Service was excellent, entrees were well prepared, a touch on the salty side. Very cozy atmosphere, especially on a winter night. Another great Walker's Point option.

It was a cold and stormy night... But it was worth the trek to crazy water for a wonderful dinner. Started with chirozo stuffed dates -- a flavorful appetizer. Entree of Dover scallops were cooked perfectly with a wonderful crust. Risotto was creamy with right bite. Definitely on the list for a return visit.

We were lucky to grab seats at the Crazy Water bar for a post-christmas decompression dinner. The wine selection by the glass is small, though excellent. Anna the bartender was a warm and accomodating host. Everything we ordered (with Anna's recommendations) tasted like the best thing we had ever eaten. The stars of the place are clearly the two brothers... More

This place is amazing. Who takes a corner bar with a tiny nook behind the bar for a showcase kitchen? Well Jimmy B's on Lincoln pulls it off with great $4 pork chop sandwiches, but THIS, this is true fine dining with creative dishes and well developed flavors. Add in professional, informed table service from Paulie and you have yourself... More

The food was amazing and so is the location and atmosphere. The tiny kitchen is great to see it work and the alcohol selection is nice. Always for special occasion for me due to prices

Went back to the restaurant after a 3 or 4 month hiatus. Still great food and service. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

My guy and I met my family for dinner. This was a new place for me, and I would return on a future trip to Milwaukee. It's a small place with a tiny kitchen that produces amazing food. We started with the chorizo stuffed bacon wrapped dates baked in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. Delicious. I then had the sea... More
