Excellent service and delicious food. We had the hangar steak, rib eye and crazy shrimp and they were all so flavorful. The oysters and shrimp bisque were incredible as well. Many dessert choices which were also excellent. Very friendly service and a cozy atmosphere

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...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....More
