The hospitality is unmatched, John is personally on hand most days to meet & greet the customers. Making sure that the food is as ordered and of excellent quality. A new menu is now being offered as well, located on N. Buck Road, simply drive past East Harbor State Park - the Crows Nest is located on the left hand side of the road, offering a spectacular view of the harbor. Spring and Summer Months offer outside dining and a Tiki bar for refreshments.

“Under new owners and very impressed!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Visited last November and was very impressed. I came in the door and was welcomed by the new owners. Made me feel very welcome and still get that same service every time I go in. They had bad service in the past and I'm very impressed with how John and his wife have done. I recommend Crow's Nest to anyone that is asking about a great place to go. Great place to watch your favorite sports teams.

“A great summer drive by spot...”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

The tent on the patio allows for more outside seating but the bar inside is a place to meet the locals and area visitors. Great food. Good drinks. Not skimpy. Best part of a visit is meeting the owner/manager Joh Skweres or his lovely wife, Marla. They make any visit feel like you are coming to their home. It was a great place for snowmobilers in the winter and even better with longer days and indoor and OUTDOOR seating. Some of my favorites include a Bone-in Porterhouse froom the wood fired grill. Baby Back Ribs. Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and Drunken Mussels are always on someone's plate. Just a comfy atmosphere made even better by the smells of the grill and the welcoming attention of the staff especially the Skweres. I am pretty sure they still do the $10 steaks on Wednesday night as well as just good ole Burgers with Home Made Chips on Friday nights for $5.50. Definitely worth a visit if you are near Port Clinton, in the Lake Erie Shores and Islands (shoresandislands.com) region, and / or just want to get away for a short drive from Sandusky, Huron, Bellevue, etc.
