Crazy Water recently opened for lunch now. We went today on Valentine's Day and thoroughly enjoyed every single bite of our meal! We had the Shrimp Bisque which was excellent along with the Short Rib sandwich - I'm still dreaming of this one, you have to try it, tender melt in your mouth beef, gouda sauce, caramelized onion and arugula...

Crazy Water is one of those fun little spots that surprise you once you go, but until you are prompted by someone, you might never venture in. The restaurant is small and unassuming, and easy to miss when driving by. However, once you walk up the steps and get inside, this small eatery definitely gives you a "homey" feel. There's... More

We went for dinner and sat at the bar. Our bartender was great and the ambiance was lovely. We had the brussel sprout app and ahi tuna tacos. The sprouts were one dimensional in flavor and the tacos were the highlight of the meal. Our entrees, the shrimp and scallops were fine but certainly not anything special. We walked away... More

We went there to celebrate a birthday. My husband had oysters as an appetizer --- metiocre at best. The squash soup was good. The chef has moved into this tropical fusion and the scallops would have been good without all the citrus and pomegranate seeds. It was okay. The sea bass was good. It was a pricey dinner. I didn't... More

My sweetheart and I had an all-day meeting in Milwaukee, with an early start. So drove to Milwaukee the night before with the hopes of getting a nice dinner and a good night's sleep before the meeting. We also invited our friends from Racine to come up and join us for dinner, so it was going to be a pleasant... More

Booked for dinner Sunday evening arrived at the appointed time. The only table free was near the front door so we declined. Staff were frankly rude. Tried to organise a drink while waited for a table to be free. After being ignored for about 10 minutes we walked out. My fiends, to whom I had raved about crazy water, now... More

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
