Am I writing this review as someone who was genuine excited to try Crazy Water. If only I had known our class would prevent us from getting seated in the order of our reservations and treated as guests. My boyfriend and I came down from Appleton to have a weekend getaway and try some of the great offerings the chefs... More

This place has a terrific cozy atmosphere. It was and often is packed. The food is phenomenal, the Hangar steak was cooked to perfection, the sides were tasty. The veal is succulent, and a colleague who is vegetarian had a delicious pasta dish. Somewhat higher priced but worth it.

This small, cozy restaurant puts out some serious food. We only saw two chefs/cooks in the kitchen, but they hustled some delicious meals to a packed restaurant on a Friday night. We had a table of six and were seated in the back, which was perfect, a little more quiet than the front room. I had the shrimp with chorizo... More

We stumbled upon this little gem and will make it a regular whenever we are in Milwaukee. The decor is warm and cozy. The staff is welcoming. I loved the pillows and banquettes - even a high banquette at the end of the bar, perfect for two. Most importantly, the food was outstanding. A seasonal menu including fresh salads and... More

A great local restaurant ... A small house converted to a business, Very small kitchen and acoustics a little loud, BUT .... The food and service was outstanding! Each of our 3 diners had a different entree and we all raved about it. I had the halibut and can honestly say it was one of the best pieces of fish... More

Crazy Water has become one of our favorite restaurants. It is small but cozy and the food and service is excellent. Last night I had the steer tenderloin special - the sauce was phenomenal. My wife had the scallops. Key lime pie for dessert and a triple chocolate mousse.

Went here on a Sunday evening with my wife and the director of alumni from my alma mater after not having been in years. Suffice it to say, it was still wonderful. It is still a tiny kitchen behind the bar but the place has a covered outdoor patio that allows more folks in to partake in the great food... More

We went for my wife's birthday. We were there ahead of our reservation, which was at 7. They seated us and by 730 they were full. The bacon wrapped date appetizer was very good. We ordered the encrusted halibut and the crazy shrimp for dinner. Both meals had a great mix of flavors and the service was great. I had... More

We ate here recently while visiting Milwaukee with friends. What a hidden gem - the food was amazing. It's a small place - so reservations would be good. They have an outside patio that looked very nice. You can see the kitchen from the dining room and you will be amazed at the fabulous food that comes out of such... More

We eat here whenever we come to Milwaukee. The menu varies from time to time, but it is always loaded with unique, tastefully prepared entrees and appetizers.Amazing how they can turn out such outstanding food in a kitchen the size of a large closet in front of the restaurant. We dined in the outside patio which is like a private... More
