Always a great place for dinner

Wonderful patio! Attentive wait staff. Food always delicious. Menu does not change as often as other local places, but the food is reliably delicious. Can get a table with 1-2 days notice. Can talk comfortably on patio w/o yelling.

I hosted a business group of nine. We had several appetizers, different dinners, and shared desserts. Everything was absolutely outstanding. I had the parsley encrusted halibut and my mouth is still watering! The restaurant is small, very intimate, a little off the beaten path, with eclectic decor and a great menu. Because of its size, you probably need reservations. Next... More

Always great. Always unique. Always interesting. Crazy Water is one of a kind. If you are not a fan of corporate style restaurants and appreciate unique experiences you'll love this place.

We sat at the bar and the woman working the bar was great. She was super nice, very attentive, and very personable. The was good, but not great. I had the salmon... More

I like what Crazy Water is trying to do. The food is interesting, yet it missed the mark for me. I started with the zucchini blossoms stuffed with white fish (Barramundi?). Good, yet the sauce and the fish didn't work for me. Second course was a mixed greens salad with fennel that was spot on. My main was a kobe... More

Cool, eclectic, trendy, upbeat, offbeat little place. It's maybe cozy and quirky at the same time - it's a fun restaurant - great food - great staff. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I are in Milwaukee visiting family and we had a night out. I decided to try this place, it was delicious. We got the wonton as an app and they were so good, very flavorful.

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.
