Fun, but the MC could clean up his act

I first wondered if the complaints about the MC were because people accidentally brought their children to the later (9pm) adult-themed show. Unfortunately, I was concerned with... read more

We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren when we decided to go to the Crow's Nest for the Crab Races. They had an early show that was touted as a "Family" show. The host was rude and obnoxious. He was so nasty to the crowd and picked out individuals in the room to shred into... More

I first wondered if the complaints about the MC were because people accidentally brought their children to the later (9pm) adult-themed show. Unfortunately, I was concerned with the MC comments made during the family show, including things like asking a woman "how much do you normally get" (prostitution joke) in front of her 6 year old daughter. I think it's... More

If you've never been to a NASCRAB race - you've got to see this! Lots of fun and entertainment. The guy that conducts these races is hilarious. Gets the crowd super involved. Best with a group of people. Don't think I've ever had a winning crab but I still go back.

The host was crude and rude. I was having fun with the table making jokes here and there, but I guess because I was funnier than him, he asked me to leave! The table guests said I didn't do anything wrong but he was serious. I left humiliated! The Manger of the establishment was shocked and apologized for the host... More

My teen son and I attended the crab races and enjoyed dinner at the Crow's nest. Very entertaining show and good food. We had a great time and raised some money for the community as well.

Took this show in at Tween Waters Inn with my five year-old daughter, and it was highly entertaining. The main table is small, so be sure you arrive early to sit right in the front. The guy putting the show on was entertaining and friendly, though he seemed a little claustrophobic and cranky if you got too close to him.... More

My third time watching and participating with Tim doing the MC ing...he is a hoot and you can't be thin skinned! He's like a stand up comic with a squirtgun ready to get you... Hilarious crab races with the laughs of a good stand up. Have some strong drinks, buy a crab for $5 and let the fun begin.

The BEST fun on Captiva Island! Wonderful food, generous pours on liquor, irreverent host and silly adult fun!! There are no losers, all that are willing to participate win, half of all proceeds go to charity and laughs abound! A MUST visit!!

What GREAT fun!! We were in attendance with two of our friends last Monday for the 9:00 pm "show". There are two shows each Monday and Thursday: The 7 pm show is family / kid friendly. The 9 pm show is for adults only - must be 21 or older to attend. The cost to participate is $5 per crab.... More

This was such a fun event.. we went to the family-friendly time and would love to go to a future one during the adults only time. The guy in charge was super fun and it was fun for all ages. The food at Tween Waters Inn wasn't very good... I wish we could have just eaten somewhere else and still... More
