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

I love this cozy restaurant! Always busy but with a great atmosphere you don't notice. I had dinner with my husband and son and we all enjoyed the dishes we picked. The server was wonderful. I wish I could remember her name! We will be back!

Crazy Water is a Walker's Point staple. This restaurant has been around for decades and continues to deliver. It can be very busy, so be patient. The food and atmosphere are as good as they can be. Keep it up CW!

We stopped in Crazy Water without reservations, and they said they didn't have any tables, but we could eat at the bar. The bar is pretty small with fewer than 10 seats. We waited less than five minutes and two seats opened up. We got drinks and looked at the menu before deciding to stay and eat at the bar.... More

This little cozy restaurant has a great atmosphere, friendly staff and food. While I cannot give bad reviews base on my lifestyle I just give 4 out of 5 due to a small mistake in the food but I was extremely surprise that was corrected immediately. Drinks are great too, my friends and I enjoyed the place so much we... More

The restaurant was packed...Saturday night. The energy was vibrant and the food smelled amazing as soon as you walked in the door! We sat outside on the back patio, very comfortable and relaxing. Pauly was our server, very attentive, friendly, and knowledgable. We had the empanadas, artichokes, and asparagus. For entrees our party had the veal special, halibut, hanger steak,... More

We love this restaurant! Especially when the patio seating is available. We've been here many time and the food is usually fantastic. The last time we went, I had the special and I was disappointed with it but we'll definitely go back again. The flat iron steak is awesome. The downside is it is very noisy and the tables are...

I was looking for a we restaurant for my husband and I to try the night before we flew out for our anniversary trip to Mexico and this place exceeded all of our expectations. On a Thursday evening there was only room at the bar which ended up being a great experience as we watched two chefs prepare amazing meals... More
