One of the best restaurants in Venice. We usually eat upstairs in the dining room and have never been disappointed. We recently tried the more casual tavern for a change and also enjoyed the food and service down there. Downstairs is a little louder and rowdier, as a tavern should be. Great wait staff on our visit and the manager... More

We are new to the area and stopped in as we saw an $15 early bird special advertised in the news paper. We were not able to sit next to the window but sat the next tier up and just loved the view (you'll have to go early if it's winter). Chad was our waiter and he was very knowledgable!... More

this is the only damned sit down restaurant on the street that parallels the beach.....town is a mile walk or drive back into town where there are many restaurants but we didn't know this when we walked to the beach, hoping to get a water view restaurant. The Crows Nest has a canal view, which is great. But the lunch... More

Venice Florida is one of those cities who's restaurant business depends heavily on the retirement community that lives there. As such, I find lots of great breakfast and lunch places and not so many great dinner places. The Crow's Nest is one of the few top notch places in Venice that I could recommend for dinner. For starters, it has... More

Whenever we want a great meal at an affordable price accompanied by excellent service we visit the Crows Nest in Venice. Everything on the menu is very good and the daily specials are truly special. The wine list is excellent and they have a good selection of wines by the glass. Go to watch the sunset. In addition to the... More

Part I: We started in the Tavern with some appetizers - raw bar items. While so many do not enjoy oysters & steamed clams and I can appreciate that - by the way they were great; That said all the other menu as the servers were walking by us looked great. Steak fries, salads, and sandwiched looked well worth ordering.... More

I had scallops which were tasty, my wife had crab cakes which were god. My sister had stone crab claws that were great. Good service reasonable prices. The... More

You can walk away from a meal at Crow's Nest and feel like you got excellent value for the $$$ spent. The view is amazing and the menu is a match. Seasonal and local Red Grouper was very good blackened but next time I would order it broiled. The blackened was done right but the flavor overpowered the grouper's flavor.... More

I went here this past weekend with two friends that were visiting from Mass. I had the delicious broiled salmon with yellow rice. They were daring and tried Swordfish with capers. We all really enjoyed our meals. We had great service too. I love this restaurant and know that the fish is always fresh.
