Cool atmosphere. Decent Sushi, and it's not just decent because it is in the midwest. Wait staff was great. The Chef/Lead cook was a jerk, stood in the dining room on his cell phone for 15 minutes while we were eating. And, he was not discreet. Totally ridiculous!!!

I try to have sushi in every city I visit, and this was easily the worst sushi I have EVER eaten. The Tuna on top the roll was mushy and gross, the manager stated "it's minced tuna" which is mentioned nowhere on the menu. The octopus was so tough, it was like chewing a tire. I ordered like 19 and... More

Cristian V, Owner at Screaming Tuna, responded to this review

Very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our sushi & the octopus sir. The tuna topping in this specialty roll is labeled as "spicy tuna" as opposed to the "tuna" or "seared tuna" labels found elsewhere in the menu, referring to the same ingredients & execution of a spicy tuna roll. We do not have $19 or $20 rolls on... More

On a couples weekend in the city we tried this for Saturday night dinner. Definitely needed the reservation we made. Parking looked challenging but they have a valet. We walked. I love old fashioned and the had an East Fashioned which was fun. The hubby and I had tempura, sushi for two, and a couple of extras. The miso soup... More

A fantastic dinner with some amazing choices. I had miso soup, the Screaming Tuna and Ninja Pig specialty rolls and they were simply amazing. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the water. Reservations recommended.

As vegans, we found Milwaukee a bit challenging to get a nice meal. Screaming Tuna was a great choice for us. They had a nice variety of sushi rolls that could be made vegan. Best of all was the seaweed salad. It was a meal in its self, and the best I have ever had. Had to park two blocks... More

This really is a 4.5 restaurant. Two of the four of us gave our food a 5. One said that there is nothing special about his sushi and gave it a 3.5. I gave it a 4.5. Try the blackened octopus appetizer. My wife really loved the seared Ahi Tuna. Our server (Katlin) was as good or better than any... More

My husband and I went on a weekend night without a reservation. Parking is challenging, but the weather was good enough that we walked a few blocks from our spot. The wait was well over an hour, which is not something we usually are willing to do when hungry. We were able to squeeze in at the sushi bar and... More

Whenever we're in Milwaukee, we go to Screaming Tuna. We love their sushi, love that they're eco friendly, and love the view of the water!

We came here with friends for a dinner. The sushi was very good. A wealth of flavors, variety, and high quality. However I do feel the prices are a bit higher than other comparable options around the city. The atmosphere is nice and the location is accessible for both downtown and Third Ward visitors, but I had a few minor... More

The food is very good and the restaurant has a bar as well as a sushi bar. In addition to great food it is right by the river and has patio seating during the warmer months. All the other shops around it like ice cream and frozen yogurt make it a great date idea!

Sushi With A View. Screaming Tuna is a Sushi & Asian Bistro specializing in traditional dishes with a twist. From our Signature Roll to our Sushi Pizza, you'll find classic flavors and one of a kind inspired fusions.

The full bar is complimented with a very extensive sake, wine & cocktail menu, and features one of the best skyline views found in Milwaukee. Seating 140 inside and 100 on a one of a kind patio, we offer reservations and 2 business/party friendly private "Dojo" dining rooms.

Valet parking is available Friday and Saturday, or go nautical! Located directly on the river, you can park your boat on our docks and walk right up to our patio.
