Had a craving for suhi so decided to try Screaming Tuna. Had read some reviews so decided to try 2 rolls I had read about and was glad I did as they were great: No Name roll and Garlic roll. Menu is extensive so finall decide on Volcano roll which has always been a favorite at other retaurants and glad I did as it had loads of spicy scallops on top!
Had a nice selection of wine and the charonnay I ordered was very good and perfectly chilled!
Inerior is pleasantly and tasefully deigned, view of river and Historic Third Ward is veru interesting ( and entertaing)!
Not cheap but worth every penney due to flavor and quality ( and nice quantity-- my husband and I could not have eten any more!)
Will definitely return to try other rolls and entrees!

While a little difficult to get to and park by, the Screaming Tuna is worth the trek. We were treated by friends so price was not an issue (though it seemed reasonably priced and allowing double living social coupons helped bring down our friends' costs!) The food was great. We could have stopped with the appetizers. An unbelievable tuna pizza, crab chipotle wontons which (actually had more crab than cheese), a fabulous sake ceviche with rainbow rice crackers and a great sushi roll. By the time the entrees came, we were already quite full. Three of us ordered a fabulous Seafood Udon Noodle dish which brought back memories of a good fettuccini alfredo. Though if I went back, I would get the chef's choice sashimi platter which my other friend got since it had many of my favorites on it. The only miss for me was the Miso soup which seemed slight on favor and what it has was off a bit. We sat outside and enjoyed the lights coming up on downtown Milwaukee in the fun Third Ward atmosphere with the Harley's driving by. I'd can't wait to go back.

On a beautiful night we went to Screaming Tuna for shushi. Watching the boats go by and the bridge raise and lower was great fun; however, I have had much tastier Asian food. I would highly recommend the restaurant for the ambiance.

Hard to find it at first - the entrance is hidden inside an office building - they should do some signage improvements. Staff is a hit and miss, food average, prices high. Nothing special, wouldn't go back.
