Stopped in for pit last lunch of the vacation. What a nice way to wrap it up with an outstanding meal. Had the oysters for appetizer and fried oysters for lunch. Enjoyed every bite! The others that were with me also enjoyed the meals and nice views of the boats passing by. Definitely a place to try when you are... More

The food at the Crows Nest is just one of their outstanding attributes. Seafood is our favorite here, but they serve many other foods that are just as delectable. They are really busy in season, so make sure you have a reservation. Inside or outside you won't go wrong.

Had a wonderful lunch on the balcony. A perfect day to eat outside. Marco, our waiter as a delightful and attentive server. I had the seafood bisque which was good and the crab cake appetizer which was excellent. I would definitely come here again.

The food was good, we were lucky enough to sit by the window and the view kept our four-year-old entertained. A little pricey and a reservation is a must. Have been wanting to try it and we weren't disappointed.

Great place to eat. Great atmosphere. Love the salmon plate, fish tacos. Catch a sunset at the Jetty, rent kayaks, buy bait, or just relax inside with a long Island ice tea.

My mom and I had a wonderful, early afternoon dinner near the windows. Beautiful view! Mom had the ham dinner special and I enjoyed the turkey dinner special. We also devoured our glorious desserts of bread pudding and cheesecake! While the food was amazing, our server was up to her ears in tables. She was stressed, therefore, not attentive. This... More

The restaurant has nice views of the water, but outside seating is quite limited which was disappointing for out of town guests. We were told not parties over four could be seated outside. The bartender and her drinks were great. Food was good.

We do large parties every day on our outside deck. We are licensed for 24 seats on our deck or we would add more! Perhaps only a 4 top was available when you requested a table but we routinely seat larger parties by putting tables together. We apologize for not offering that option. We are glad you enjoyed the bartender,... More

Packed in season. Good seafood and a broad menu of choices. A little spendy due to its location close to the ocean.
