Stop here every time we visit Gloucester. Always a fun place with a great atmosphere. They make their mixed drinks LARGE and STRONG, but delightful. Nice Barmaids, good music on the jukebox, Keno, friendly patrons, and some colorful locals. You can always start a conversation, and find people from all over there. Just a comfy, casual, fun time.

Had to stop in here because of the movie the Perfect Storm, one of my all time favorite movies. It is for sure a 'Local's' Local bar and you can tell that everyone pretty much knows one another here, although I'm sure that they're used to the tourists coming in all the time and it doesn't seem to bother anyone....

Of course you have to stop here if you're in town, it's the thing to do. My husband and I stopped in on a rainy day. We are no strangers to bars like this one, and thanks to the locals it felt like home. We had a lot of laughs and learned some things. Thank you staff and wonderful patrons...you... More

Stayed 1 night in October 2014. We had dinner somewhere else, then came back for drinks before bed. Fun interesting experience. $60/night

I knew from the get go that it was a local bar and a local I am not. That being said service was VERY slow....I suspect on purpose. Some people were friendly, some were not. Prices were good. I came, I saw...I won't be back.

We visited because of the movie The Perfect Storm. It's an average place where locals usually go. They were very accepting of us as "tourists", and answered a lot of our questions about the movie and the town. We were there on a rainy, cold Saturday, but the staff & other clients were very friendly and the conversation flowed freely.... More

My husband and I were stationed at the USCG small boat station from 1989-1992 and we come back every 2 yrs for a reunion. We wanted to stay at the Crows nest for the ambience, relive a piece of OUR history and to have a drink. The rooms were very clean. We knew what to expect, (price is big indicator)... More

I really don't have terrible things to say about the Crow's Nest, just realize that you have to lower your expectations for this place to be rated #1 or 2 in nightlife in Gloucester on TripAdvisor. It is NOT the bar from the Perfect Storm - a few things on that: The bar from the movie was right off the... More

I must admit that I was not sure what to expect after reading some of the less than favorable reviews on some other sites but my husband and I travel often and never have an issue anywhere we go so we assumed this would be the same! What a great place! Now mind you, we talking a very local bar..some... More

I had a chance to visit last week and have a few beers (great local draft beer) in the afternoon. Fortunately the owner was there as well as some of the fishermen that work out of Gloucester. They took the time to talk about fishing, walk me through a photo album with their experiences during the filming of the Perfect... More
