Went with family for dinner and it did not disappoint. My uncle said the fried oysters were the best he has ever had. My filet was perfect and everyone else at the table said their food was fantastic.

Do you love seafood , fresh ? Was a fabulous meal. Perfect portions , dessert was the best, great view and great service. Don't forget to watch the sunset and enjoy . Walking distance from beach . Inside and outside dinning. Service was outstanding.

Friends took us here to share a special dinner & we were not disappointed! We were able to sit at an upstairs table overlooking the water- beautiful ! Waiter was attentive, food was wonderful ( crab cakes were some of the best I've ever had!)...More

Have gone to Crow's Nest for years. Always one of my favorite. Went with another couple for Sunday lunch. My friend and I ordered the Scallop salad, which we both had maybe a year previous. This time it was awful. Some wilted and brown lettuce....More

We enjoyed our stay here. They offer kids menu, we had deep fried shrimps -good, an amberjack steak with BBQ sauce - very good and a plate with mixed seafood- also good. All cooked very nicely... good place to be.

We sat outside, but it was very comfortable. The food was delicious and the View was amazing as the sun was setting.

Loved the setting overlooking the marina. Friendly and professional service. I was disappointed in the lobster that they offered on the 4th of July, but the baked potato was to die for.

Yes, this location accepts reservations. I consider the dress code to be a sporty or nice casual in upstairs dining room. Not too dressy but better than just beach attire. If you want to dress up a bit this is a beautiful... More

Our Tavern downstairs is walk in only but we do accept reservations in our dining room upstairs. Crowded times would be around 1:00 PM. We have our own parking lot. Thanks for asking!
