We went to the small restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The food is a little expensive $23-$35 but well worth it. The staff is very nice.

Now in it's 9th year Crazy Water is well-established as a dining destination in the south end of the Historic Third Ward (Walker's Point, technically). From one of the smallest restaurant kitchens I've ever seen comes some of the best food I'v had in Milwaukee. What I would describe as standard comfort food is presented in a cozy, inviting venue...

Crazy Water is a place you can't miss if you love food. I have a lot of favorites but by far, Crazy Water is my absolutely can't miss place. Call at least 4 days in advance for a reservation.

This was our fourth or fifth meal at Crazy Water, and it never has disappointed us. The intimate atmosphere is exciting. Sure, the tables are very close together and it's difficult to move around, but that's part of the experience. I had the halibut special with shrimp bisque, bith of which were outstanding. the rest of our group all got... More

Crazy Water delivered with some of the best food I've had in awhile, with my entree being the salmon with bacon. Presentation was great and helped justify the cost. My only gripe is how cramped the dining room is. While waiting for our table (with reservations) there was no reasonable location for us to wait. We spent 15 minutes shuffling... More

I came to Crazy Water based on reviews and was quite pleased! The restaurant is small, capacity is 62 based on code. I ate at the bar and found the bartender very friendly and helpful with menu suggestions, which was needed because everything looked delicious. It's a treat to eat at the bar, as the kitchen is open and the... More

We didn't think we'd need a reservation for a Monday night but realized it was holiday week. Arrived at the restaurant at 6:00 and every seat in the house was taken almost immediately with reserved tables so it is a HOT SPOT! The food, specials, and service were all exceptional. Bartender was social and professional. Owner may have a bit... More

With 45 countries and thousands of restaurants under my belt, I can say without hesitation that dinner at Crazy Water is by far one of the most memorable dining experiences I have ever enjoyed. Atmosphere - eclectic, funky, fun, and all good vibes, from the open kitchen, long bar, and banquets to the tin ceiling and 70's style mirrors adorning... More

this is an awesome place, food has some wonderful flavors, no room really for pre-drinks, but there is a bar pretty much right next door. we were seated in the back, that is nice a little quieter. Service was good definitely did not rush us. Pretty nice wine selection at decent prices
