We had some spectacular fun as we had dinner here when it was "Nascrab" crab racing night. Yes, there really is such a thing - they "race" hermit crabs across a casino style table & it is really well done with lots of fun & charm ....Our kids (17, 14 & 6) really enjoyed themselves & are still talking about...

My husband and I both enjoyed our meals at the Crow's Nest, and were suprised at the costs considering the area. Would definitely go back!

This place had OK food, nothing spectacular. The drinks were good, but expensive. Most of the staff was extremely unfriendly. We stayed at Tween Waters for a week, and really dreaded coming here a couple of nights, as a last resort. The customer service was one of the worst I've seen. The hostess was unwelcoming, and didn't greet us. The... More

Went to the Crow's Nest tonight having exhausted all other South Seas and downtown spots. Excellent fish fry, very good service with a totally attentive staff. Clearly worthY of a repeat visit. And there was a band!

We went on a Thursday evening, and we're very disappointed to find out that there would be no more crab races until mid-October. We had already ordered food, or we would have left. I wish they would have updated the website to indicate that fact - especially since we have a limited number of places to try on vacation. Beer... More

Great time with the family at the Crow's Nest tonight. The food was great, and the service, too. Casey was our server and she was friendly and attentive! We'll be back.

Great service from friendly staff. Fresh fish specials change nightly and are fabulous. Portion size also good (not massive as some USA portions can be!). Reasonably priced too. Get a booth table to watch the sunset.

We chose this spot hoping to see the sunset as we ate. You just can't. There are only a few tables along the windows and the rental properties in front block the majority of the sunset view. Our booth just beyond the hostess desk was the best chance we had. While our meals were average, I didn't think they were... More
