Stopped in to the Crows nest with friends and was about what you would expect from a local marina bar and grill. Food was good but not over the top. Large portions and decently priced. Good selection of food, but overall lacked seasoning and distinction. Full bar and a nice vie of the marina. Service was ok, but probably would... More

This may be the only full-service bar in the area. It's always buisy. Food is average to above average. Choose between a burger, salad, or a burger with a salad. Pricey for the area, but it's the only wet dock in town.

We eat here several times a week when we stay at our house in Ten Mile. It's a 15 minute boat trip from our cove and we love the pretty view of the lake and the marina. The carp, bluegill and turtles just over the side of the porch are a fun attraction fro kids and adults alike. We love... More

The food is good, but the atmosphere and views on the deck are the best. The food is good for the locale, and the offerings are abundant. From hamburgers to fish, the menu covers a wide variety of food items. All of the food is very good, but may be considered expensive, but it is on the lake!

Many options for sides, I had waffle fries and the other two had onion rings. Both were plentiful and good. Serve is... More

It is located right at the Marina facing west the beautiful Watts Bar Lake. The scenery of the lake is really nice and soothing, especially at sunset. The ambiance is relaxed, local and cordial. There is both inside and outside seating. If seating outside you can feed the fish and turtles that play around in their local enclosure, it is... More

Took our friends out for a nice long boat ride and ended up at Blue Springs Marina on Watt's Bar Lake. The restaurant is The Crow's Nest. They have a good variety on the menu, Burgers, Sandwiches, Fish & Shrimp Tacos, and a few dinners. Our group had burgers, tacos and the seared tuna salad. All were happy. The burgers... More

The place was not as clean as most places we eat. I had the seared tuna. It was by far the worse I ever had. My wife had the chicken with bacon and cheese on a sandwich. We had to have another chicken filet cooked because it was very tuff. The replacement was not much better. The tea was good.... More

Our first visit with family, we ordered one hamburger, one cheesburger, a hamburger steak, two Yungling beers and one iced tea. Total bill almost $50.00. The burgers, advertised as Blank Angus, were not hand made patties but tasteless "cookie cutter" patties you buy in big box stores. My "hamburger steak" (a hamburger pattie on a plate instead of a bun)... More
