My husband and I were able to get an early reservation to the Crow’s Nest – it filled up f-a-s-t right after we got there at 5:15 pm.. The staff was friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food fantastic! We had seafood bisque, calamari, and the bouillabaisse… all great! The bisque was spiced just right – reminiscent of she-crab soup. The... More

Not only does the restaurant have good food but a nice view if you are lucky enough to get a window. Fabulous sunsets in Venice. They have a shuttle, golf cart, that can take you to the Jetty. The tavern downstairs is my favorite, great food and music on some evenings. One of the best restaurants in Venice

This place has two levels. Prices were better at the lower level (no view) but they have a bar upstairs you can sit and watch the Sun set. ALL servers were awesome...They have a guy on weekends playing some sing along songs. All the classics from Jimmy Buffet etc....

Highly recommend this long time Venice restaurant. The view & sunset was great from the outdoor dining area upstairs. Really enjoyed the chilled seafood combo - a bit pricey but well worth it. Great service - will return & recommend to others.

This is a nice scenic restaurant overlooking the water. We were directed upstairs. Although outside seating was available, it was hot so we ate inside and still had a great water view. I enjoyed my crab cake with cheese grits, and my husband liked his grouper sandwich. We had to wait a little while for our food. Our waiter was... More

Dined at Crows Nest for the first and last time while on vacation with my family. We ordered two grouper sandwiches "market price" and they almost missed the bun with the fish! We thought maybe they had "hidden" the rest of the fish under the lettuce but no. We even asked the waitress if this was a "whole" grouper sandwich... More

I love to take my out of town guest to this place. The location is great with a good Florida view. The food has been good every time I've been there. When out of towners want to eat seafood by the water this my go to place.

Had lunch on deck with view of intercostal waterway. Had crab cakes and cheesy grits. Very good! Portion was small with only one small cake although menu said it was jumbo, it wasn't. My friend had a 3 course meal for $15 which was a bargain. It included salad, salmon and potatoes, and dessert. Service was great. Our waiter had... More
