Being such a HUGE fan of the movie "Perfect Storm", I just had to visit the Crow's Nest. Of course its not the same one you see in the movie but it's the REAL one! The people were more than willing to talk about the Andrea Gail and that awful storm. There are pictures surrounding the bar of all the... More

The original bar from the movie "Perfect Storm". The waitress had a photo album of the crew of the Andrea Gale and the actors who portrayed them. Super nice people.

we were in the area and wanted to stop in for a drink. It was a hoot. It is just like in the movie The Perfect Storm. Small bar with one bartender who is pleasant but direct. Almost everyone (except us) appeared to be a regular and often talked across the bar to other people who were not with them.... More

My 18-year-old son and I took a road trip to Gloucester for the day. He really wanted to see the Crow's Nest after watching the Perfect Storm. We stopped in and had two sodas. The bartender and the patrons could not have been nicer to us. One of the patrons even bought our sodas for us. They gave us advice... More

It's loved by local fisherman and you'll hear a lot of loud conversation that I quite like, but it's truly not a place to have cocktails. When we asked for our favourite common mixed drinks, the female bartender looked as if we were asking for something illegal. They were terrible, but probably just thrown together without caring. Go for beer... More

Went in because of the movie A Perfect Storm and some trip advisor reviews! It's very much a locals hangout but they were very happy to chat up about the crew of the Andrea Gail and just about the history of fishing in their town! Great friendly locals! Very thankful they were happy to share stories with strangers! Great stop!

Had to stop in for a beer at this 'historic' tavern brought to fame with the movie 'A Perfect Storm' It was interesting. Mostly locals probably wondering who we were. Movie stars with autographs in frames on the wall. It was worth the stop for a cold drink.
