We visited this place at least 4 times while staying on the island! We tried a few different menu items each time, and all were good! The only thing that wasn't great... Was the pizza... But it was good! I just love pizza... So I expected it to be awesome! The crab races were a hoot! All the entertainers were really good! All and all good place to go!!! Enjoy... We did!!!

Dear Mindy E

Thank you for the positive review. I'm pleased that your enjoyed the Crow's Nest Beach Bar & Grill so much that you dined with us four times! The crab races are extremely popular as well as our entertainers and I am glad you enjoyed them both.

After reading the glowing reviews of others, we may be the problem, but here goes.

We went to the early Crab Races and dinner with our six grandchildren and their parents. The unanimous opinion, of all but one daughter (she had the grouper), was the food and the races as narrated by a borish MC were horrible. The fact that this restaurant got a Certifcate of Excellence in 2014 for last year tells you more about the quality of restaurants on Captiva then the quality of the Crows Nest. This reastaurant is to be avoided!! On the other hand, the more formal restaurant on the property, The Captiva House, which is a white table cloth restaurant was more then acceptable.
