The food is so good and unique. We sat in the outdoor area which was very cute. Waitress was great. We all ordered something different and tried the fig appetizer. Which was tasty. I had the shrimp and it was zestful. Both steak dishes that my husband and son ordered were just as delish. Highly recommend.

Late dinner choice with no reservations was a great experience. Friendly greeting and easy welcome to choice of seating inside or outside. We chose outside given how often does WI allow weather conditions for that option. Luckily it was screened and tented to protect from bugs and light drizzle. Dinner options were plentiful and we chose the special appetizer of... More

We had a party of 6 with a 2 teenagers. We looked at online reviews and this place looked good. When we walked in it was pretty clear this was more if a romantic couples place and NOT a place for family dining. The menu, although minimal, looked good. Scallops, etc. However the pricing was....ahhhh...a little out if the ballpark.... More

We arrived 30 minutes early and were seated immediately. We had a delicious feta cheese appetizer. Next my wife had a morel mushroom soup and I had gazpacho. The Mrs. really liked her soup, I thought the gazpacho was a good attempt but it tasted too much like cucumbers. Finally the wife had scallops and I had the Crazy Shrimp.... More

Our dinner at Crazy Water had high and low points. One meal was a 4 or 5 (horseradish encrusted grouper), the other no more than a 3 (salmon was a bit overdone, which was surprising as it was said to be their signature dish). Our server was not the most attentive and the wait for our appetizer and entrees was... More

I cannot begin to express my excitement for finding this place!!! The ambiance is wonderful! You could dine for a date with friends or business. It's like a little Secret Garden in a busy city! You can feel the love and detail that goes into ever dish. I wish I could have eaten more! Our Server Tracy was energetic, passionate... More

Small intimate restaurant. Sat at bar and was well looked after by attentive bar tender. Small menu (which is a good thing for a small kitchen). Had a plate with numerous small items including sea bass and Asian mini burgers. Each item was perfectly prepared. Will definitely visit again when in Milwaukee

We ate there once and it was great a few years back, then ate there in Nov. 1015 and I would not have recommended it. None of us in our group enjoyed the meal. I was really surprised because the first time it was a memorable dining experience. I will not go back though, too expensive to be hit or... More

I have yet to eat something that wasn't fabulous here! I always start with an order of the chorizo stuffed bacon wrapped dates and go from there. Love the atmosphere and the coziness. I'd make a reservation just to be on the safe side though. It can fill up in a real hurry! Most recently I had the seabass which... More
