Cruised into the Crow's Nest twice during my one week visit to Santa Cruz late March/early April. Weather was cool and rainy both days, but this did not detract from the experience of dining at this beautiful location at the Yacht Harbor. The first visit was on a Saturday morning for a business breakfast meeting and I quite enjoyed my order of huevos rancheros and fresh OJ. The second visit I joined friends mid-week for early happy hour (3:30ish) and appetizers were half price or discounted. We shared shrimp cocktail, calamari and a salmon appetizer, which were all tasty bar/lounge fare. The Crow's Nest is still one of the best locations to enjoy waterfront dining in the Santa Cruz area and it is just how I remember it from year's ago. It is still a local's favorite and also a popular destination for tourists/day trippers.
