When going to Crazy Water you should be prepared to be patient. The service leaves quite a bit to be desired. From checking in to food timing, this place runs on a little different time table than most places. We really loved the actual place, the back patio, the crowded dining area and louder noise level. Those are things that are very appealing to me personally. The food was also very good, however the service was pretty much non-existent. Don't let that deter you, but this probably shouldn't be a top 10 in Milwaukee restaurant.

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 that combines just the right amount of "vibe" while still maintaining a "conversation friendly" atmosphere. Don't confuse "standard" with mundane! Chef Peggy Manchester uses fresh ingredients in unique combinations to craft really yummy food presented in portions of good size at the right temperature and properly seasoned. The perfect plate "trifecta" to me!! Finally, the wine list is of manageable size with many reasonably priced bottles with an admirable international spectrum. Highly recommended!

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.
