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.

We visited Crazy Water on our first trip to Milwaukee. The food was delicious and the chef put together dishes that initially seemed like they may not work, but came together successfully. The first course was the soup of the day, morel mushroom soup, which was rich, tangy, and filled with morels. One of us had a tamarind pork shoulder... More

Although this was my first trip here, the couple that brought me here mentioned delicious meals they had had here just a few weeks ago but weren't listed anymore. It's definitely a place to make a reservation. The kitchen is part of one front window and a largish table for 6-8 in the other. Two chefs kept a tight handle... More

We went to Crazy Water tonight (Thurs) with friends from Wauwatosa.....we are visiting from MS. What a nice evening. It's not a big place with about sitting for + - 50 in the main dining room.....more setting in back and on the patio. We had reservations for 6:30. We'd asked to have the primeur table which sits on a platform... More

Have been at Crazy Water three times and am always impressed by the quality of food created in such a small kitchen. Had soft shell crab appetizer, which was great, a beet salad, that was good but quite small, and two entrees, the signature hanger steak (excellent) and duck (also very good). The food is tasty, the service great, and... More

We had a sea bass special, a phylo and camembert cheese with blueberry and balsamic vinegar and the Watermelon Mediterranean salad. All wonderful tastes. Enjoyed the people that were there as well. Had very excellent service. We will go back for some dessert.

This has always been one of our favorite places to dine. That opinion was cemented once again. Due to the arrival of spring in Milwaukee(at long last!), we were able to sit out on the patio. What a treat. The beef Wellington was superb, the Key Lime Trifle spectacular. The service was marvelous and the chef, the owner, continues to... More
