We have not eaten at the Crows Nest upstairs in many years, but do try to get to the tavern downstairs whenever we want a good burger. The atmosphere is great, and the food is tasty as well. Great for a casual meal.

One of the best in Venice. A bit pricy and sometimes noisy, but the food and service are always very good. Nice views of the marina. A good place to impress visitors .Ask for a table by the window.

It's a very nice restaurant - not very cheap for dinner but always good. Delightful for lunch if you have a view of Venice Inlet.

Great dinning on the water in Venice, FL. The Crow's nest is a delightful casual dinning restaurant for lunch or dinner. Its menu offers a variety of choices well beyond the standard seafood selections.

Have eaten here several times. I find it to be hit and miss. The service is good and the food has been good however, I've eaten on the patio and have had 2 bad meals.

Excellent food with a commensurate price. Reserve early during the season. Seafood is top notch and the wine list is appropriate

This is a great restaurant and the service is just as good as the food. The atmosphere is really nice too. It's a little on the pricey side but that goes along with any really good restaurant. You won't be disappointed. During "Season" a reservation is an absolute must!
