We went to dinner and it was crowded. The restaurant has an upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs the menu is different and more expensive than downstairs. We chose downstairs. The food was good, but the seating was cramped. The service was poor as one dinner was late coming out and the drink refills did not come very often.

We regularly visit this restaurant when in Venice, both upstairs and downstairs dining are very good. The one way salad downstairs is very good with a range of toppings. Upstairs offers great views as well as food!!!

Crow's Nest Marina Restaurant is one of our favorites in Venice Florida. We are always guaranteed quality food and service. Great atmosphere over looking the gulf. Highland recommend this restaurant for excellent dining.

I'm used to excellence here so did not a slight drop...in service, food portion and taste. This was upstairs fine dining (although I love the pub downstairs). Always fond of the cracker/hummus/butter/oil/bread spread to start. We had an appetizer but my mind is NOT remembering it (must not have been that good). BF got seafood potpie and loved it dearly....

First visit there for lunch was much better than I expected, NE clam chowder was nearly as good as in New End. Reluctant to go for a complete meal, but will definitely go again for a complete lunch or dinner. The view of water and dolphins, manatees certainly adds to the enjoyment with boaters refueling their yachts made me interested... More

We met friends for an early dinner, eating downstairs in the more casual atmosphere. Service was great. The food did not disappoint us. Just having the nachos is a meal in itself. Everything is clean. Prices are average for this area.

The Crow's Nest is a Venice favorite. My wife and I have been going there for over thirty years. The food is always excellent. My favorite is the clam chowder, fish sandwich, and fries. The service is superlative. We like to eat downstairs where the atmosphere is intimate and familiar.

We live in Sarasota and were up for a little road trip last night. We planned on eating dinner then going for a walk on Venice Beach. The rain cancelled the beach walk but it didn't interfere with a really good dinner. The first thing that REALLY impressed me was the creative and interesting menu. We eat all of our... More

I had kingcrab and they were awesome. there were 5 of us and we all had something from the Sea, loved it all 2 of them had never been before and can't wait to return. The wine list is very extensive and good choices as well as good prices.
