Low key, family friendly with very good food. We ordered: the grilled scallop special, the fried fisherman's platter, seafood pot pie, and grilled salmon. All were perfectly done. And all came with warm, homemade biscuits. A pleasure of a meal. And, for this area reasonable prices. Same food elsewhere would be 40% more. Plus you can watch the sunset out... More

This is a casual place with really great food, good portions, friendly staff and a nice variety in the menu. We ate here as well as the Captiva House next door. Two very different experiences. The Captiva is fine dining with tablecloths, excellent food as well but with prices to match the decor. The Crowe's Nest is a Tavern but... More

Grouper bites are fabulous - loved the Mai Tia cocktails too. Had a good band playing while we were there.

Had the wonderful opportunity of meeting two of the best bartenders on Captiva island, Casey and Matt @ Crows Nest.. Totally attentive to everyone's needs, very laid back and funny. They made the amazing experience that is Captiva even more fun. Food at Crows Nest was fantastic, from the wide variety of local seafood dishes to steaks/chicken, great tacos and... More

We've been coming to Captiva for years now and the Crows Nest is a great restaurant for our family because they have something for everyone. Jasmine was our waitress and was very courteous, prompt, and attentive. There were no complaints at the dinner table and our food was really good ranging from pizza to fish with a menu that included... More

We expected an old English pub, but instead we had their Prime Rib special at 29.95 for TWO. This would have been a bargain if it had been $29.95 each. The Prime Rib was perfectly cooked to order as were the baked potatoes. And they also have live music.

Ate a lovely meal before the New Years Party and the Modulators! Can thoroughly recommend the Ribby Dip. Pizza is good and easily enough to share.

The food was surprisingly good and original for a bar and grille. The sliders and salad were excellent. The bruschetta was ok,but the mango and goat cheese topping just did not work for me. The band was entertaining.

If this had been anywhere else in the world and I have entered I would have walked out again, but here it looks as it should. Just like in the 80's (or when they builded it) Food is ok and service varies, but it it all fits ok to a reasonable price.
